Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul Wedding in Philadelphia | Sarah + Dominic

The theme that carried throughout Sarah and Dominic’s wedding day was echoed in the homily and in the toasts: joy and sacrifice, laying down one’s life. These two, deeply in love, entered into the sacrament of Matrimony on a warm and sunny day in July.  Their Catholic nuptial Mass was in the massively beautiful Cathedral Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul, the mother church of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Every aspect of the day was executed to perfection. It was an exceptionally beautiful wedding but what made it even more special and beautiful was the couple and their deep love of Jesus and His Church.

Sarah got ready at the elegant Overbrook Golf Course which was the location for their reception later that day.  Surrounded by her loving family and friends, she donned her dress and veil and prepared to walk down the aisle toward her beloved.  Dominic got ready at the fabulous Four Seasons with panoramic views of downtown Philadelphia. He had amazing details such as his Holy Family Hearts cuff links and their names stitched into the collar of his white tuxedo jacket.

The celebrant of their wedding Mass was their friend Fr. David O’Brien. He spoke so highly of Sarah and Dominic and their relationship. He noted that their Gospel for the Mass was specifically picked out by Dominic. It was the Beatitudes from Matthew’s Gospel and Dominic said that Sarah encompasses every beatitude. Fr. David also spoke about how they are called to found their marriage on a firm foundation, building a new family out of the heart of the Father.

After Mass, we all headed back to Overbrook for the party of the century. The Murgia and Latino families know how to party and they were “taking care of business” on the dance floor!  Their band was incredible and had everyone dancing, even during the cocktail hour! It was a wild night full of joy, laughter, and fantastic dance moves!

Sarah and Dominic, we hope you’re having the time of your lives in Bora Bora! We are so blessed to have been your photographers, getting to know your exceptional families, and getting to pray with you as you entered into marriage.  Thank you for the opportunity to serve you on such a sacred day! I can’t wait to see what God has in store for you both!
