 Wedding Photos at Philadelphia City Hall Arches

The inside of City Hall is beautiful and so is the outside! There are many amazing locations for wedding photos around this grand Philadelphia landmark. The arches on each of the four sides of the courtyard make for lovely wedding photos and we took full advantage of being in front of one of Philly’s most iconic buildings.

How He Asked

Bonnie shares the story of how she and Alezando met and then how he popped the big question!

” I saw him standing on the steps of a school on a Thursday. I saw him again the following Tuesday & decided to make my move. That was 8 yrs ago & we’ve been together ever since. Never “took a break” from each other. His proposal was very unorthodox. While in the mall, we walked into Kay’s Jewelry to “buy me something nice”. He was at one end, while I was at the other. As I walked towards him, he had the ring in his hand. He never asked, “will you marry me”? Instead, he asked, “will you wear my ring”? Me, in my goofiness, asked “are you sure” to which he replied “yes”. Odd story, but OUR story.”

Bride’s Wedding Planning Advice

Bonnie shares some wise words for other couples planning their wedding day:

“Our advice would be to have fun. City hall doesn’t mean “stuffy”. It’s your day, regardless of where you are. Enjoy it.
Have fun with it.”
