I was excited to be asked to cover the Brian Lamsback and Angela Skalicky wedding taking place at the Hyatt at The Bellevue in Center City on July 26, 2014. I’ve known the Lamsback for several years, and have been aware of the events they produce although I never really have seen the end results of a large scale event as they do a lot of weddings, Bar & Bat Mitzvah‘s, anniversary parties and other celebratory events, but not as many gala’s that I attend.

“It was truly a wonderful experience to create my son and daughter in
law’s big day-it was the best and biggest present I could have given
them-my whole heart.” -Bob Lamsback
The Reception at the Bellevue Ballroom was breath taking.
I’ve photographed many events in this room, and I have never seen it look more spectacular than I did for the Lamsback wedding.
Brian’s groom’s cake! It
was perfect for a previous announcer of the Villanova basketball games
and always a Villanova basketball fan!! It was created by Darren Dipietro at The Cake Studio in Ocean City, NJ
Place setting – the roses are stunning.
note the candles lining the center pieces
Tina Lambsbeck: The Hyatt at the Bellevue was beyond amazing
to have such a momentous occasion. Lisa made both families feel like we
were her family and she handled our event as if
it was her very own! Every station, meal and specialty drink was
handled with care and were absolutely delicious down to the last
bite/sip. Her creativity was off the charts! Everyone is still raving
over the lemon drop martinis and wonton dumplings-the best in the city!
Thanks, Lisa, David, Ritchie and the entire Bellevue staff! Cheers to a

I have photographed many events, and have been to many weddings, the Lamsback wedding was eloquent, classy, no details were over looked. I love how they put the bar in the ballroom, something I’ve never seen before and it worked well. My favorite decor was the hanging chandeliers from the balcony, again nothing I have ever seen before. Just a magnificently produced wedding.
