Kelly and Allan appear to be a simply loving and natural couple. Their engagement session captures the pure essence of their relationship, with each other, and the city of Philadelphia. Antrim + Spruce truly illustrated this couple’s love for one another which was painted in front of the beautiful landscape at Belmont Plateau. Kelly and Allan are certainly the stars of this show, but we can’t help but fall in love with their super adorable pup, Lucy! This Philadelphia engagement session is complete with everlasting smiles, genuine love, and beauty all throughout, which makes it pretty easy to pore over.
From the Bride: “It was important to us to have our wedding in Philadelphia, and to introduce our friends and family to the city where we met and where we’ve been living for the last 7 years. Our amazing photographer, Celia Ragonese of Antrim + Spruce, took this as inspiration for our engagement shoot, which featured the beautiful skyline, parks, and infrastructure of Philadelphia — plus our dog, Lucy, whom we adopted from Saved Me (a local shelter in Northern Liberties)”
From the Photographer: It was a chance. Pure chance.
Perhaps the last of its kind in this day and age of swiping right and DMs. But it was chance, a cancelation, and a fateful night at the Philadelphia Orchestra that put Kelly and Alan where they needed to be: at the intersection of love and chance. Because from that moment when they met, their lives would be forever changed…
(Cue orchestral swelling music)
It’s her laughter and bright spirit that fills up the room and it’s his down-to-earth thoughtfulness that creates the perfect complement. Together, as they complete their studies at Penn and create new lives outside of Philadelphia, they will host their friends and family from both near and far to celebrate their love and life.
As a final hurrah to the city that brought them together, Kelly and Alan and their cutie-pie rescue, Lucy, headed for the skyline view at Belmont Plateau and a little walk along MLK Drive for their fun and sunshine-filled engagement session. Sigh… So dreamy. And just look at Lucy! Don’t you want to rescue a pup right now? I do.
Also, not to bring Beyonce into this story (because Beyonce is everywhere right now), but the place that Kelly and Alan are getting married? The two of them went out to a dinner at their would-be venue, and Beyonce arrived and blessed them with her presence for a hot minute. They realized if it was good enough for Beyonce, it was good enough for their wedding day, and I totally agree 100%.
Kelly and Alan (and Lucy), your wedding day is going to be amazing! Can’t wait for June!
Congratulations to Kelly + Allan, they tied the knot! See a super Sneak Peek of their wedding at Talula’s Garden.
