Welded | Orchestrated Stylized Shoots

Orchestrated's Welded celebrated the strong and powerful Industrial Age. "Mines, factories, mills and forges sprung up across the region and helped make Southeastern Pennsylvania an industrial powerhouse and worldwide leader in the Industrial Revolution. Dozens of factories, forges, mills, and mines dotted the landscape and gave rise to technological innovations that would change the course of human history."

Our storyline was that it was a sophisticated celebration between a mature bride and groom getting married with their children at their sides. Envision glamour meets steel. Experience meets everlasting love.

But reality swooped in and knocked us off of our feet. The event turned into a surprise vow renewal between our "bride" and "groom"... who in real life just celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary. It was all of the groom's idea. He said, "We are all dressed up. We should renew our vows!" There was not a non-teary eye amongst all the photogs and vendors in attendance during AND after the vows. So this ceremony setup was a very special one not just for us, but for our lovely models/family.

Some other special tidbits that we incorporated into the shoot were...
* Blended families are so much a part of a lot of home dynamics, and we wanted to incorporate that concept.
* Very few stylized shoots have older brides and grooms, and we wanted to showcase the beauty of love at all ages.

Overall, it was a very special way to kick off 2013 and all thanks to Tonia of Aribella Events!
