NEPA Wedding at The Beaumont Inn {John & Carly}

John & Carly got married on a beautiful, sun-filled July day at the Beaumont Inn in Dallas, PA. From the elegant black and white decor including feathers, flowers, and chandeliers, to the bride’s beautiful vintage-styled gown and peek-a-boo veil, this outdoor wedding was lovely in every way. And these two, with their best friends and family joining them for an intimate ceremony and reception, wore their ‘heart on their sleeve’ for all to see. Carly’s mom walked her daughter down the long, outdoor pathway, and music was played while Carly sat on the edge of the dance floor, honoring the memory of her dad who passed away a few years ago. Her sister and matron of honor, Erin, gave Carly their father’s dog tags before the wedding as her “borrowed” item. It was a pleasure to be part of your day, Carly & John, and we wish you all the best in your marriage!wedding photography wedding photography wedding photography

NEPA Engagement | Union Dale, PA {Brynna & Brent}

These two have quite the love story! They met in Alaska getting ready for a wedding they were both standing up in {Brynna was the maid of honor; Brent was the best man}, and when Brent got off the plane and saw Brynna waiting, it was pretty much love at first sight. These two worked side by side for a week finishing the wedding details when the bride got sick, and during that time together, they decided to start dating as well. There was one BIG problem…Brynna was leaving for Mexico in two weeks to live and teach for two years. So, they ended things while Brynna was out of the country to allow her to better adjust to the culture and life in Mexico and focus on relationships and teaching there. And Brent, every now and again, emailed her, found out how she was doing, prayed for her, and thought about her…A LOT! Brynna, not wanting to give false hope, carried on with life in Mexico, compared guys she dated to Brent, and emailed him back, every now and again. Fast forward 3 1/2 years, with Brynna back in the country and living and working out of state. Brent asked if they could meet up over Christmas, have coffee, and chat (well, something like that). And…to make a long and very interesting story short, they met up, still had feelings for each other, and started dating again {insert cheering, here!}. They got engaged on Memorial Day and are getting married Labor Day weekend, with only a few months to plan, but a lifetime to love! It’s a sweet, but complicated love story, and to make it even better, as Brynna’s mom, I got to capture this love in pictures. We decided on a “travel” theme, since much of B & B’s story revolves around travel, and we are so thankful that God brought them around the world and back together again! And…btw…B & B found out they were raised only 45 minutes away from each other when they met in Alaska!  {“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD.} Isaiah 55:8engagement session-7engagement session-9engagement session-10engagement session-11engagement session-14engagement session-16engagement session-21engagement session-22engagement session-23engagement session-25engagement session-27engagement session-28engagement session-30engagement session-32engagement session-33engagement session-40engagement session-41engagement session-42engagement session-43engagement session-45engagement session-46engagement session-1-2engagement session-3-2engagement session-4-2

NEPA Wedding at Irem Clubhouse {Alyson+Jimmy}

We met Alyson & Jimmy at Ricketts Glen for their engagement shoot, and it was of our favorites (well…maybe I say that about every shoot) but we had a great time with them and could not have asked for better scenery  or a nicer couple. Everything came together for their wedding day, too-beautiful fall weather, gorgeous colors, all the bridal party (24 or 25…I really couldn’t count them all!), and a great day to celebrate these two tying the knot–and celebrate they did! We loved being with them and getting some great shots of their special day. Alyson & Jimmy-we wish you all the best and a big congratulations to you guys!a-1a-2a-3b-1b-2b-3bridal-party-1bridal-party-2bridal-party-8wedding-ceremony-6wedding-ceremony-12wedding-ceremony-18wedding-photography-3wedding-photography-16wedding-photography-20wedding-photography-33wedding-photography-35wedding-photography-37wedding-photography-43wedding-photography-47wedding-photography-51wedding-photography-64wedding-photography-86wedding-photography-92wedding-photography-96wedding-photography-113y-1y-2y-3y-4

NEPA Wedding at Irem Clubhouse {Erin+Mike}

We met Erin and Mike for the first time when they came to my house for a winter engagement shoot. There was, uncharacteristically, not much snow around our area last year, and they really wanted snow. So…the ski resort cooperated, and started blowing snow the day they came for their shoot. It was a freezing cold day and these two were such good sports at the mountain, and then back at the farm (after warming up with hot cocoa), that we got lovely pictures. So, we figured that anything after that with these two was a piece of cake! So now, a fall wedding, a bit (maybe a lot) of rain, moving the ceremony indoors at the last minute, posing under an umbrella and under rooftops…this warm-hearted bride and groom and their bridal party did what we asked of them, had fun, made some memories, and we got some great pictures! All our best to you, Erin & Mike! wedding photographywedding photographywedding photographywedding photographywedding photographywedding photographywedding photographywedding photographywedding photographywedding photographywedding photographywedding photographywedding photographywedding photographywedding photographywedding photographywedding photographywedding photographywedding photographywedding photography

NEPA Wedding at Creekside Grove {Matt+Jenny}

Matt & Jenny are an adventurous, fun-loving couple who enjoy the outdoors, gardening, their dogs, and road trips. They wrote their own vows, planned a beautiful wedding at Creekside Grove in Lenoxville, PA, and were blessed with a gorgeous sunny day for this special day in their lives! We were able to take a quick stop at Gin’s Tavern (Jenny’s uncle owns and runs it) and had fun getting some pictures of the girls at the bar. We were unexpected entertainment for the patrons as we tried to move tables, take pictures, and leave before the groom showed up (he couldn’t see the bride)! So, it was a bit crazy, lot of fun, wonderful celebration!1-1 1-3 gr-841-7 2-1 2-2 2-3 2-4 2-5 wedding-1 wedding-2 wedding-3 wedding-4 wedding-5 wedding-6 wedding-7 wedding-8 wedding-9 wedding-10 wedding-11 wedding-12 wedding-13 wedding-15 wedding-16
