Vibrant Ricketts Glen Waterfall Elopement Styled Shoot

This vibrant Ricketts Glen Waterfall Styled Shoot was what summer Pennsylvania dreams are made of.  Despite the heavy rains that have been impacting our area recently, some area swimming holes are quite beautiful, especially for a summer elopement in the mountains if you're an outdoorsy type of bride.  The inspiration behind this shoot was precisely that.  The mountains of Pennsylvania and the variation in the landscape is something that's so inspiring for me personally, and this session combined vibrant, locally grown flowers from Patchwork Planting with a woodsy feel sewn in throughout the wood place settings, the stunning invitation suite from Flourish Grace Calligraphy that even featured wildflowers in the envelope liner, the agate inspired cake from Bellas Bliss and of course the secret location at the foot of a gorgeous waterfall nestled along a gravel road in the middle of the dense forest.  For the full vendor dream team list, be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post!

Ricketts Glen Elopement | Laura & Lucas

Laura and Lucas eloped on a beautiful {and hot} summer day at the beautiful new chapel at  The Lodge at Raven Creek in Benton, Pennsylvania.  Just a short drive to Ricketts Glen, the chapel was the perfect place for them to exchange vows and take some family portraits before heading off to the falls for some woodsy Pennsylvania romantic NEPA portraits at the foot of a waterfall.

Julie & Matt | Romantic Lancaster Farm Wedding

Julie & Matt's romantic Lancaster farm wedding at the Country Barn was filled with lots of love by so many friends and family members who gathered to support and celebrate Julie & Matt. Every little detail was thought out to ensure a perfect time for their guests in a comfortable atmosphere.  Low key (but delicious) comfort food choices and lots of beautiful desserts are two things that always make for a great time at a wedding.  What a way to kick off my 2018 wedding season - with clients like this my job is pretty great!   

The Feiler wedding started off at the beautiful downtown Lancaster Cork Factory hotel, where Julie & her girls got to spend time relaxing in charming rooms with exposed brick before slipping into the most gorgeous dress!  I absolutely loved the lace detailing on Julie's gown and she couldn't have picked a more perfect dress for her St. Patrick's Day wedding!

The green details in everything from the invitation suite and bridesmaid dresses to the florals, tied in the romantic vibe and subtle St Patrick's Day theme throughout the day.  

Lot's of little accents and wood burned details from Twelve Twenty-Nine Supply Co infused throughout the day made for a super personal collection of details that tied in the barn venue perfectly!  Check out their Wedding Services here for more information on how you can get gorgeous custom wedding hangers and more for your big day!  

Julie's bridesmaids gifted her with a scrapbook full of memories from each prior to heading to the venue.  I LOVED this idea!  

Julie brought a piece of her father with her on her wedding day in the form of a cylinder containing some of his ashes tied into her bouquet.  I love this memorial option for brides who may not have a loved one physically present with them on the wedding day.  

Julie chose to do a 'first look' with her brothers upon arriving at The Country Barn wedding venue in Lancaster before walking down the aisle... there may or may not have been a few tears.  A first look doesn't necessarily have to be with your groom, but can also be really special with family members as well!  I highly encourage brides to consider a first look of some sort for your big day!

Signature drink choices like Irish Sangria kept with the St Patty's Day theme!

The simple white & green lanterns and florals were absolutely stunning against the backdrop of the Country Barn - such a romantic statement against the rustic barn walls.  And can we talk about that arbor?  Custom made by James, it was the picture of perfection when paired with the magic touch of The Details Matter Florists.

A late night French fry bar, lots of dancing, and a sparkler exit under the stars to end the night wrapped up a perfect romantic Lancaster farm wedding for Julie & Matt!  Congratulations to the Feilers!

Henna & Tristan | Herman & Luther's MacKenzie Childs Inspired Wedding

I love a unique wedding, and Henna & Tristan's MacKenzie Childs inspired dream wedding at the picturesque Herman & Luther's venue in Montoursville, PA, was the perfect wedding of the summer.  Herman & Luther's is a gorgeous treasure in the heart of Pennsylvania, and we just love a restored stone barn as a wedding venue!  The windows bring in that soft, dreamy light throughout the day which is the essence of the way we love to photograph a wedding.  The barn itself isn't all Herman & Luther's has to offer!  They boast a pretty amazing menu for couples to choose from which is all created in house. Henna chose to incorporate her love for all things MacKenzie Childs into her wedding day, and I loved the classic black & white color scheme with the signature MC courtly check throughout many of the details, from the cake stand to the umbrella that we had to use to dodge a few raindrops (and take advantage of an amazing rainbow shortly after)!

Aside from all of the 'pretty' of this wedding (and there was a lot of that), my favorite thing about Henna & Tristan's day was the amount of love that was poured into this day.  From all of the hard work Henna & her family did to create the day for each guest with carefully thought out details, to lots of happy tears, great friends who offered thoughtful and meaningful toasts, and parents who were filled with gratitude for a beautiful day surrounded by their family and friends, this wedding was truly a dream come true.  Congratulations Henna & Tristan!
