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!

Benton Backyard Ricketts Glen Wedding | Sam & Mike

Backyard weddings are always some of my favorite weddings of the season, and Sam & Mike’s wedding was certainly one of them! Sam & Mike chose to get married in a very small ceremony with just family and close friends on Sam’s fathers property in Benton, just a few miles from Ricketts Glen State Park, so of course we hopped over to the Falls Trail for some portraits!

Backyard weddings are always so much fun {but a ton of work} and guests always feel relaxed and families tend to love opening their homes to all of their loved ones for the day. If you’re planning a backyard wedding of your own, be sure to plan for potential rain & mud, and as long as you won’t be devastated if your dress gets a little dirty (even a beautiful Exclusively You gown), they are a wonderful way to celebrate!

Congratulations Sam & Mike. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your day - wishing you many years of love & happiness!

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.

Frosty Valley Country Club Wedding Danville PA | Jamie + Justin

I am so, so thrilled to be delivering this gorgeous Frosty Valley Country Club wedding in Danville, Pennsylvania.  Jamie & Justin were one of my first portrait sessions (yes, ever!) while they were home for Christmas from sunny California and craving some good ol' Pennsylvania snow.  They put their faith in me to showcase their amazing love and I was hooked.  I had such a great time with them, I made it my mission to start working more and more with couples and weddings, and am now proud to say that I'm thoroughly in love with all things 'love' and that weddings are without a doubt, my thing.  So there is nothing that can bring me more joy than to be able to see this couple full circle and full of that same spark that made their engagement session so special, as they met at the altar on a sunny Saturday afternoon. My favorite thing about Jamie is her laid back demeanor.  She wasn't frazzled or worried, she was focused on having fun and taking it all in; and she definitely did just that.  She has an amazing spirit that is just... fun to be around, and she and Justin couldn't be more perfect for one another.  I hope you can tell by these images... they just beam ear to ear when they are around each other and I hope they never lose that.  It's what sets them apart from other couples and is going to help them through the inevitable tough days that sometimes creep in.

The day was gorgeous from start to finish, but I have to say Jamie's veil, dress, and flower selections were so stunning that it just added to the ambiance created by the love for this amazing couple.  Add in a wedding party that likes to dance, and the day was nothing short of amazing.  Congratulations Jamie & Justin on your recent marriage and I wish you many, many years of love and happiness!  I am so honored to give you these memories!
