We are so excited to feature this beautiful wedding at the American Swedish Historical Museum in Philadelphia, PA
This gorgeous wedding was photographed by Melissa from Bliss Photos
Here are a few words from Melissa about the wedding:
“Amanda & Francisco had the most romantic wedding I’ve ever witnessed!
The ceremony was in both Spanish and English to lovingly include Francisco’s family. The vows were so incredibly warm, thoughtful, and honest. There wasn’t a dry eye in sight (including mine).
The decor included wildflowers in blue Talavera vases, candlelight, and strings of lights that illuminated the clear top tent their reception was in.
The reception was so full of life! They ended their night with the most vivacious dance party!”
