VIDEO: This Philly Wedding Killed a Mannequin Challenge at the National Constitution Center

This past weekend, photographer Geoff Conklin (the husband in the married duo behind Alison Conklin Photography) was playing around with newlyweds Louise Bowes and Stephen Marencik at their reception at the National Constitution Center in Old City. He did a “test” Mannequin Challenge on his phone with the Founding Fathers in Signers’ Hall—the room in the museum where life-sized bronze statues of the men who signed the Constitution live—and showed it to CinemaCake‘s Dave Williams as a joke. But then they realized: The room would actually make a particularly clever venue for a full blown, professionaly orchestrated Mannequin Challenge.

So they checked with the bridal party, and since everyone was up for it, they went for it. And they got it on their first take!

Well done, guys. Well done.

PW Reader Ring: Melissa & JJ!

Melissa's ring!

Melissa’s ring!

The couple: Melissa Roach and JJ Jordan, from Deptford.

The ring: My ring has a princess-cut solitaire set in white gold. The setting has character, which almost resembles an upside down heart. He had help picking out my ring from his mom and two sisters, but if you ask him, he will tell you he did it all on his own!

JJ did know what I wanted a princess cut—I am OCD for clean corners and symmetry—but the rest, I left to him. The ring is from Barsky Jewelers, where his dad bought his mother’s ring over 30 years ago.

Philly brides, rejoice! For how many years have we begged and pleaded with the bridal universe to bring us a BHLDN (the wedding-focused sister brand of Anthropologie is, after all, Philadelphia based) in our very own city? (Well, since the brand’s launch five years ago, I guess, to be exact.)

Ladies, the time has come.

PW Reader Ring: Krista & Tim!

Krista's ring!

Krista’s ring!

The couple: Krista Ricca and Tim Maffiore, from Philadelphia.

The ring: My ring has a round diamond with a diamond halo set in white gold. My mother helped Tim with the design, as the center stone is actually her and my father’s.

The ring was originally just the center stone—the halo design was all Tim’s idea, which changed the ring completely! (I did subtly leave some pictures around the house over the years.) He had the ring made at Billig Jewelers in Marlton.
