World Cafe Live Wedding – Philadelphia, PA {Jenni & Garinch}

This World Cafe Live Wedding was so special! What a fun venue for a wedding ceremony and reception. Here are a few words from the bride:

How did you meet?

13 years ago, a friend of mine at the time asked me to take Salsa lessons with her, and there was Garincha! I knew instantly that he was the one & I would marry him someday, and vice versus:-)

Why did you choose to have a World Cafe Live wedding?

 A good friend of mine got married at WCL and we loved the atmosphere, lighting, set up & sound. We felt it was a good choice for us since our families & friends are coming from diverse cultures & backgrounds. It’s a great place for everyone to feel comfortable.

Tell us about your first dance…

We are Latin & ballroom dancers, Garincha choreographed a first dance that is a medley of many dances (tango, rhumba, waltz, bolero, Salsa) with all of our original moves from over the years of dancing together. The first dance is also the story of how we first met.

Getting Ready at the Study

The Study is a contemporary hotel in the University City section of Philadelphia and conveniently located to their wedding venue. Both Jenni and Garincha got ready at the hotel. They had their first look and a few portraits in the modern and bright hotel lobby.
