Wow - how much did this wedding run them?

I had never checked out Philip Gabriels blog, but did so after the post below about him ... and that led me to this blog entry.  This wedding is NUTS - I mean, in a good way .. amazing.  I can't even begin to imagine how much this cost them:

    Yowza! Amazing- this photog has done some SERIOUS weddings, I am guessing he is pretty pricey judging by the weddings he's done.

    The decor is beautiful! Her party dress is awesome!

    It reminds my of something that would be on My Fair Wedding. I wouldn't be able to think that up on my own!

    Gorgeous!!!! I love her first dress. The chuppah is amazing and the decor is to die for.  Looks like a fabulous wedding and like they all had a blast. Pretty bride.

    But yeah, the linens alone probably cost more than 10K.

    This wedding was no more expensive than the Crystal Tea Room or any other nice philly location and Philips work is good but nothing to brag about.

    Beautiful wedding.  So, uh, strongwilled, what photographers do you think are something to write home about?  Care to post them here as recommends for some ladies who might be looking?

    You think that wedding was the same cost as other city weddings?   Really?   The girl had 2 most likely couture gowns, 2 bands, her Chuppah alone probably was 5k in flowers, she had her own entertainment event company hired to plan the wedding, etc.. I wouldnt call that run of the mill.  And the photos are amazing .. but clearly we all know nothing about costs of weddings.

    Renting a space and decorating it is a lot less expensive than booking a reception hall in Philadelphia. My guess is it's about 2/3 the cost per person of Cescaphe, but much more unique. She probably saved a ton of money by bringing in her own booze and hiring bar tenders, because she can return what she don't use. A typical reception hall you are paying for people to drink even if they don't drink.

    Thank you angel. You can do a lot with a little budget. In fact, you can rent the naval shipyard for free to do an engagement shoot in. I actually looked to have Laura shoot ours in there ironically.
