One of the amazing things about Philadelphia and the surrounding area is the sheer variety of venues. There's everything from chic modernism to antique grandeur and everything in between. There's also a lot of new venues, and The IATSE Ballroom in South Philadelphia is one of them. Kelly + Kevin's wedding was the first big event to be held there. I can't think of a better way to kick off a new venue. No detail was overlooked. It helps that IATSE stands for the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. These guys know lighting, and they know how to put on a show.
Kelly + Kevin also know how to put on a show. Theirs is a little more effortless, though. It's the kind of show only two people in love can pull off.
I was honored to be there to witness it.
