Ricketts Glen Elopement Session | Chelsea & David

I have been shooting a lot at Ricketts Glen this year, but I love how each season and session is so different! Chelsea & David celebrated a recent elopement style wedding by doing a portrait session with me at Ricketts Glen earlier this month. We hiked part of the falls trail, headed out to the hayfields, and ended as the sun set over Lake Jean. Chelsea wore the sweetest dress she purchased down south with a sparkly pair of jelly shoes (how fun!). I loved getting to know them during this session!

Lodge at Raven Creek October Wedding | Heather & Mike

Despite the never ending rain this year, Heather and Mike had a gorgeous October Lodge at Raven Creek wedding in Benton earlier this month. The rain held off for their ceremony in front of the little white chapel on the Lodge grounds, which served as the perfect backdrop for Heather & Mike to tie the knot! Rain kicked back up later in the day which served as a cool option for some fun off camera flash portraits (check one out below!).

Heather received gifts throughout the entire day, one to celebrate each year of their relationship (11 in total!). The gifts were all thoughtful, many of them being Heather’s favorite things (like Grottos pizza!). It’s the first time I’ve seen a groom pull something like that off, and it was pretty impressive!

Heather & Mike chose a laid back BBQ style meal for their guests courtesy of David Weinhart, and the food was amazing! To top it off they brought in the Arctic Freeze ice cream truck to serve guests all night long. Congratulations Heather & Mike! Enjoy this glimpse into your day.

Stonehedge Country Club Wedding | Jennifer & Robert

I love September outdoor weddings! The air is just starting to get a little crisper, and the mountains surrounding this Stonehedge Country Club Wedding just make for a beautiful backdrop. Jennifer & Robert tied the knot on a beautiful Fall day and it couldn’t have been more perfect.

I got to know Jennifer & Robert a bit this year when I got to shoot their engagement session at World’s End State Park, which is also where Robert proposed! We had a great time and they were both so relaxed with one another, so I knew their wedding day would be so special. I love weddings with smaller wedding parties of just a few close friends and family members, it often leads to a calmer wedding day experience and Robert & Jennifer had just that!

All of Jennifer’s details, from her invitation suite to the table settings was so well coordinated and beautiful (I loved the navy and blush color palette!). But, my favorite part of the wedding was the ceremony itself! Jennifer & Robert’s pastor spoke about his recent travels to India and that a common concern many people have with India is the poverty amongst the people there. He quoted mother Theresa of Calcutta in saying, “The crisis of poverty in India is not as severe as the crisis of loneliness in America“, and tied it all together with relating marriage to an insurance policy against the loneliness crisis. What a simple and profound sermon during a wedding ceremony that I’ll never forget! Congratulations Jennifer & Robert - enjoy this glimpse into your day!

Allenberry Resort Historic Pennsylvania Wedding | Holly & Josh

Josh & Holly had one of the most memorable weddings I got to experience this season. Josh is from California, and Holly is from right here in PA, and SO many family and friends came to the beautiful historic Allenberry Resort in Boiling Springs, PA from near and far to celebrate Holly & Josh. I heard some west coast kids even got to experience fireflies (or lightning bugs as we sometimes call them) for the first time!

Holly & Josh met while working and interning for the Philadelphia Eagles and starting dating in 2014. During a 30th birthday celebration with both families present, Josh popped the question to Holly in a private room at the Marriott in Philadelphia that overlooks city hall and much of the city of Philadelphia. “There was a rose with the card and the inside read, ‘You are the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. Are you ready to spend a lifetime of happiness together?’. I looked down and there Josh was on one knee with a ring - and of course, he asked me to marry him.”

Holly planned the most beautiful and special ceremony & reception outdoor under a beautiful old tree on the grounds of Allenberry Resort. It was a hot and humid summer Pennsylvania day at the end of June, but it was absolutely beautiful. The heat didn’t stop all of the guests from having a wonderful time celebrating and creating amazing memories that they will surely cherish for the rest of their lives. Congratulations Holly & Josh!
