    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.

        Also look at Longwood Gardens-I am not sure how far that is from you but it is very nice.

            Welcome another Philly girl!! i live downtown too :)

            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.



                ?? im still on it!

                    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!
