help with location for photos in Blue Bell, PA

Recommended Posts

So our AHR is in like 3 weeks and we still don't have a location for the photos that we will do before the reception. The reception is at a Chinese/Japanese restaurant in Blue Bell, PA. The photog is from Doylestown, which is about a half hour away. Half of the bridal party is from Chalfont, about 20 minutes away and the other half is from Philly, about 40 minutes away! So we want to try to stay close to the reception site to make it easy for everyone involved, but we are hving trouble finding a place to go. The photog is doing some research, but he isn't really familiar with the Blue Bell area, and honestly, neither am I! Is anyone from that area and can tell me a cool palce to go? I just want a pretty setting for photos. Whether it's a garden/park site, or a museum or cool building. Any one have any suggestions?

 

Danielle, do you know of anywhere? I thought a fellow photog might know the hot spots...

I live in Philadelphia (downtown) and there are some very cool places down here. Not sure if you would consider driving in town but you could do the art museum or in one of the parks. Isn't Valley Forge park near blue bell? It is really pretty there.

Carly, based on the I-76 construction project that starts tonight, i would not suggest driving into the city - i think it will wind up stressing you out!
i will ask around for some sites from friends xoxo

Well I asked Leslie and here is what she said :

 

I am familiar with blue bell, but there are not any places that I can think

of for pictures. if she wanted to come into the newtown area, bucks county

community college is a beautiful place to take pictures. don't know if that

helps at all.

Yeah, I am from Philly and work in the city, so am familiar with places down here, but I don't want to have to travel (or make my peeps) travel all over the place for photos. Since the reception is in Blue Bell and people are coming from a variety of different suburbs and NE Philly, I wanted to try to make it easy for everyone and have photos close by. I might have to suck it up and pay the photog extra for the travel time and go to Doylestown for phtos or something. I don't even really know what kind of scene I want!

 

I am more into the artisitic shots, not just a lawn area, but I don't know. I suck at this stuff. Keep the suggestions coming ladies, any and all are appreciated!

My mom suggested going to Elmwood Zoo. That would be such a different place to go, and totally me, since I love animals, but I don't want to be stinking like a zoo in my purty dress!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
