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!

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.
