St Joseph Catholic Church in Downingtown
The whole vibe of Elle and Luke’s wedding at Teca in West Chester, PA was unique. Elle did not want Luke to see her getting ready. Obviously, that means they had to get ready in different spots. For Elle that meant a normal day getting ready in her apartment. Luke got the boot. When I arrived, she was in the middle of getting her makeup done by her amazing makeup artist and bridesmaid! The day started off as relaxed and chill. It quickly switched to a flurry of grab and go when the limo arrived. The bridesmaids and Elle set off for a ceremony at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Downingtown.
If you have never been inside St. Joseph’s Catholic Church it is stunning! The space offers more light than the typical church. The layout sets you up perfectly to focus on only Elle and Luke as they stand at the alter for their nuptials. Outside the church you will find that the gardens offer lots of natural beauty for the background of your wedding portraits too.
Off to Teca in West Chester
After the ceremony, Elle and Luke jumped into the limo to ride to Teca in West Chester and enjoy their wedding reception. Teca in West Chester is not as big as Teca in Newtown Square, but there is a private upstairs space for events called the Mezzanine. All of Elle and Luke’s family filed in and filled the space with laughter and cheers to celebrate the day. For Elle, the most photographic moment of the day was the official introduction as husband and wife into the Mezzanine at Teca. But, you will also love the photos captured when the whole room started to salsa dance!
Teca in West Chester is the perfect wedding space for an intimate wedding gathering. You can fit a larger crowd but not if you also want space for a dance floor. Elle is a food blogger and Luke is a restaurant manager at Terrain. Therefore, you can be certain that the food at Teca was not short of amazing! To top off their amazing wedding day, we snuck outside for a few pictures on the streets of West Chester! It was altogether an unforgettable wedding day.
