Rachel and Dan were married at Tenth Presbyterian in Center City. This is the church that I went to growing up and it was really fun to photograph in a place so familiar and beautiful. Rachel and Dan are really amazing and I’m really lucky I got to hang out with them on their wedding They started their day together with Dan blindfolded as they prayed for God’s blessing on their marriage and danced into the night including a waltz to Metalica’s Nothing Else Matters.They’re both finishing up med school with a dream to work as doctors in India. For their reception, Rachel and Dan chose to wear traditional Indian clothing to celebrate a culture they’re hoping to submerge themselves into. Many thanks to the talented Alex Udowenko for second shooting!Full post here.
