Camden County Boathouse Wedding

This Camden County Boathouse wedding was magical for the bride and groom. The Boathouse is situated on the banks of the Cooper River in New Jersey and there are picturesque docks perfect for photos. Their day started off with an intimate ceremony a The Philadelphia Wedding Chapel, then off to the Waterworks Gazebo for the wedding party and couples’ photos, and finally to their wedding reception at Camden County Boathouse to eat drink, and be merry. When I asked the couple what made them choose the Boathouse, this was their reply: “One of the main reasons we chose the Camden County Boathouse is because it is on the water.  The proposal also happened on the water at the Race Street Pier.  Some pretty great things happen to us “on the water” so we figured why not keep it going!”

Wedding Ceremony at Philadelphia Wedding Chapel

The Philadelphia Wedding Chapel was the perfect ceremony venue for the bride and groom. The space is already decorated, so all they had to do was show up, which can be a great relief and allow more time to enjoy the moment.

After their ceremony, the couple decided to do some wedding portraits right at the Chapel as well as a few with the wedding party. The flower arch made the perfect pace for these classic wedding photos.

How they Met

“We met unexpectedly on a Monday afternoon when we were both working.  Brian was working in an area he doesn’t normally work in and I was working a double shift. Neither of us were supposed to cross paths but we did. Everything happens for a reason!

 

How He Proposed

“We gathered with friends and family and went to the Race Street Pier where the proposal took place.  We had one of our first dates at the Pier and on one cold November night, the beginning of forever started.”

Next, it was off to The Waterworks Gazebo for more photos, which is just behind the Art Museum. It’s always a great spot for bridesmaids and groomsmen photos!

I love the look of the gazebo against the water and the contrast of the greenery of the park. We had so much fun with couples’ photos here before heading over to their reception venue.

Keeping with the couple’s love of water, we made one more stop on their wedding day at Race Street Pier. The Delaware River and the views of Benjamen Franklin Bridge make this location a popular stop for wedding photos in Philadelphia.

The final location was Camden County Boathouse for the reception. Before we stepped inside, we had to do a few wedding party photos on the docks at the venue. With the trees just starting to turn color the views were just beautiful.

Wedding Reception 

Camden County Boathouse 

This venue is modern and party-ready. Alex and Brian had a fun-filled reception with a lively entrance into their wedding reception, hilarious and sweet speeches, celebratory cigars out on the porch, photo booth photos for guests, and an epic cake smash. It is safe to say a good time was had by all.

Advice for Couples Planning Their Wedding

Here is some great wedding planning advice from the bride and groom:

“We would recommend a wedding planner if it is within the budget.  We enjoyed planning our wedding but it can be overwhelming at times but we know it would all be worth it in the end. Enjoy your engagement at least for a year if not longer and then set your date the following year.  Do not go right into planning a wedding that is 2 years out. Do not lose track of what you are celebrating and whose day it is – it is your day plan it how you want to!”
