How gorgeous is Suzanne and Collin's beautiful Philadelphia wedding that took place at The First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia with the reception at The Manayunk Brewery and beautifully photographed by Joe Dantone.
Suzanne and Collins met on Match.com and their first date was a walk with their puppies, who were both 3 months old at the time. They are now 4 years old and the best brothers ever. They met for that first date on the Art Museum steps, which is where Collin proposed just about 3 years later on December 21st, 2012. He couldn't keep a secret for very long, so in true Collin fashion he bought the ring and got down on one knee less than 24 hours later. It was simple, from the heart, and perfect!

Suzanne's advice to future brides - If you need to save money and cannot afford a wedding planner - YOU CAN DO IT YOURSELF. Get creative. The "thrill of the hunt" is the best part, and there is inspiration all around you. Also, the most important thing is what the day represents. It is so easy to get wrapped up in all the possibilities, but you just have to make a decision and stick with it. The joy you get to share with your closest friends and family far out weighs any centerpiece you could ever imagine.
