Colin of Moon Honey Photography captured this stunning wedding at Water Works by Cescaphe in Philadelphia. We're still trying to pick our jaws up off the floor with this one. You won't be able to get enough of Zev's custom-made ox-blood red velvet suit, Sarah's dope tattoos that complement that classically gorgeous white wedding dress, or their matching Kalinga beaded necklaces. Wait till you see their non-binary inclusive wedding cake topper!

Zev's mandarin-collared shirt is a nod to old family photos in the Philippines.

Colin told us they didn't have a theme to their wedding but said that this was always in their head while planning:

A traditional wedding with a not so traditional couple: carving out space for ourselves and others in a setting traditionally dominated by white, cis het couples.

We love how this nontraditional couple reclaimed the idea of “traditional weddings” and made it their own.
