The day began early at the Society Hill Sheraton Hotel in Philadelphia. When the Kyle Michelle team arrived on the scene, the bride was busy getting ready and the groom was kickin' it back with his closest men (and little men!). We ventured over to Amanda's room first to check on things!
After checking on the bride, we moved on to see Chris and make sure the boys weren't getting into too much trouble! After pinning the boutonnieres on the men, we left the room so that Chris could read Amanda's love letter and open her wedding gift to him - a beautiful watch.
With both wedding parties ready to go, we took the trolleys down the street for the first look before the ceremony. Once Chris saw his beautiful bride and a few kisses were exchanged, the bridesmaids and groomsmen joined their photoshoot. While the girls were busy posing for the camera, Chris surprised his groomsmen with a special present - personalized flasks!
Here comes the bride! In the early afternoon, everyone began heading over to Old St. Mary's Church for the ceremony. It was a truly beautiful Catholic service that ended with a parade of bubbles outside the church doors! Don't believe us? Take a look!
Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you Mr. and Mrs. Bernardi!
And the party begins! This crazy bunch of people didn't stop once the music started - we even joined in and danced with them a bit! From the first dance, to dances with the parents, and finally to the cake cutting, we loved each and every moment of this wedding. Congratulations Amanda and Chris, we hope you two had an amazing wedding day and that you enjoy an even more incredible life together!
