Classic Wedding at The Racquet Club of Philadelphia
Classical Details with Rich Philadelphia History
We can’t help but LOVE the simple yet elegant details that make up a classic wedding! From the bride’s timeless style to the traditional decor, this celebration combined beautiful designs and the rich history that Philadelphia has to offer! The Racquet Club was the perfect venue for this special occasion with its stunning architecture and Georgian Revival-style. This wedding venue is conveniently located in Center City, which was perfect for some cool photo-ops downtown, and for more intimate couple portraits on one of the most beautiful streets in Philly. Heart & Rae Photography captured Erin and Martin’s special day, and every pretty detail awaits below.
Erin works in marketing for Garces Group and Martin is a fine art photographer.
