It's May Day, you guys, or International Workers Day, which celebrates the labor movement. So it's mighty appropriate that the Occupy Movement makes a cameo in Kate and Yong's city hall wedding in Philadelphia. Also likely to inspire the drools: a hot pink dress, a dapper groom with match-y tie, and a sweet pooch companion (Ralphie!) for the photo shoot. It's an intimate city hall wedding with a bit of history built right in. Thanks to Lindsay Docherty Photography for sharing the goods with us.

The awesome vendors:

  1. I'm already loving the pink and grey on her, but then to see the dress has pockets?!?! OMG yes! Her hair is gorgeous as well!

    That photo of her single tear…….my goodness so sweet!

  2. I like these quirky and jovial wedding shots! I've seen the Philadelphia city hall and I really admire it as much as I love our very own San Francisco City Hall. I'm a photographer based in SF and have done a whole lot of wedding photography sessions in SF City hall! Indeed, city halls are classic locations for tying the knot!
