Kathy and Anthony were just married this past weekend at the still very new, and very awesome Tendenza, which is part of the Chescaphe venue family. Hanging out in Northern Liberties pretty often, I got to see the weekly progress of this place being built from the outside. It was very nice to finally set foot in it and I was not disappointed. The building and staff are all very wonderful. Kathy didn't get to see the same progress I did, though. She planned nearly the whole wedding from Chicago! Anthony is a lawyer, and Kathy, a doctor - so their free time can be pretty few and far between. They met a bunch of years ago (I think that was their exact words to me) in Wildwood. After a first date in Chicago, and second in Europe (picked that up from Kathy's matron of honor's speach), they finally settled together in Chicago, but have finally moved back out this way closer to both of their families. Even with just moving back to this area within the last few months, the wedding went exactly as planned, and everything was gorgeous.
We started the day at the Marriott near City Hall, and we did their first glance right outside. After a nice easy portrait session with the two of them, we corralled the bridal party and stopped through out Philadelphia for a lot of fun, relaxed pictures. We made our way to Love park, Broad Street and even the Art Museum. Then it was time for the ceremony at one of the only Slovak churches in Philadelphia.
To the Tendenza after the ceremony, the whole night was filled with dancing. I don't think there was anytime that there wasn't at least a few people dancing - even during dinner.
Enjoy their preview!!
