Trish & Dennis’ Love Story | A Dream Crystal Tea Room Wedding

Unforgettable Life Moments From Your Philadelphia Wedding Videographer


Weddings are an unforgettable testament to a couple’s love. At New Pace Weddings, we are honored to be able to capture the magic of the moment and tell beautiful love stories through our wedding videography. Our couples cherish being able to relive their special day through video and share it with family and friends for years to come.


Trish and Dennis Walter are celebrating their wedding anniversary on July 26! Two years ago, our team captured their stunning wedding in Philadelphia at the Crystal Tea Room. Their love story began when Trish met Dennis in the summer of 2015 at a shore house in New Jersey. They were introduced by mutual friends and at first, Trish thought they’d both enjoy a fun summer fling. “But after our first date, we became inseparable,” Trish says. “We just knew that we were meant to be with each other forever.” So, it IS possible to find love at the Jersey shore!


A year later, they purchased their first home, which led to a new favorite activity for the two,  making fabulous meals together. Trish and Dennis are huge foodies!


In fact, Dennis proposed to Trish a few years later at one of their favorite restaurants, the Riverwinds in West Deptford, NJ. He even surprised Trish by inviting her closest family and friends to be there – a surprise that was almost revealed too early! 


Here’s what happened:  Dennis wanted Trish to take a seat at their table where her loved ones would remain hidden until the right moment. But she wouldn’t sit where the sun would be in her eyes and refused to change seats! They laugh about it now, but Trish almost spoiled her own engagement!


Trish and Dennis’ wedding day was easily the most glamorous and amazing day of their lives. The wedding ceremony took place at St. Patrick’s Church, where Anastasia Romanova Photography captured Trish and Dennis seeing each other for the first time as Trish walked down the aisle. She remembers it as the best moment, when all her nerves disappeared and everything felt just right. They had their dream reception at the elegant Crystal Tea Room in the historic Wanamaker Building, which features luxurious carved columns, a sparkling crystal chandelier and a soaring glassed atrium entryway. The bridal party arrived early enough to capture a fun, Vanity Fair-esque shot of the group.


Once the guests arrived, the magnificent white dance floor and grand pillars were accented perfectly by Dennis’ ivory tuxedo, the ivory bridesmaids gowns, the white and blush flowers and the enormous floral table runner that Nicol Floral Design created for the sweetheart table, with classic style reminiscent of British Royal weddings.


Trish and Dennis gave their guests the celebrity treatment with the culinary brilliance of Finley Catering and the fun, glamour shot photos as keepsakes. 


“The thing we cherish most about our wedding day was having everyone we love in one place for that evening. At the time, COVID was not even thought of. The fact that we were able to get everyone we love together in one place before the world essentially shut down is something we will forever cherish and be grateful for!”

Trish and Dennis also cherish their beautiful wedding trailer. The part Trish loves most is the “getting ready” section because she was able to see how it happened for Dennis and his groomsmen. She also loved the way our videographer captured Dennis’ expression as she walked down the aisle to him. Priceless!


We are so happy to have been a part of Trish and Dennis’ wedding day. Happy Anniversary! We wish you and your family all the best in your adventures together.
