Enchanted Forest Phoenixville Foundry Wedding | Maggie & Brian

phoenixville-foundry-wedding I met Maggie via Penn State Rugby about 13 or so years ago, when I walked into an indoor practice slightly terrified during my freshman year in Happy Valley.  Maggie was probably the most welcoming and spirited personality on the team; I don’t know if it’s really even possible to not like her.  Her passion for life and the things she loves is infectious.  Enter Brian, who also met her via Penn State Rugby (seriously, the wedding was one giant PSU reunion).  I was so, so honored to have the privilege to shoot this wedding for Maggie & Brian and I absolutely loved the theme she worked throughout the day in all of the details.  Maggie was going for an ‘Enchanted Forest’ look for this Phoenixville Foundry Wedding, which was such an amazing concept for the industrial/rustic space.  The Centerpieces were created with florals in plums and purples, with greenery and touches of succulents.  The tall pieces were draped with Spanish moss and all of the details fit so well into the overall vision for the day. 

Maggie and Brian {finally} got engaged on Christmas Eve of 2015.

‘It was a surprise on Christmas Eve. We went to breakfast and he (I now know) pretended to leave his phone inside. In reality he ran back in, set up our table with flowers and his mom's ring and champagne and then ran back out to up to breakfast. When I walked in my first thought was who broke in and left flowers. As I realized it, from seeing his Mom’s ring, I turned around and there he was on one knee proposing with my ring. Tears and excitement ensued! He had prepared a day where we then took the pups into the city to a dog friendly hotel, had champagne and went to Amada, a fave restaurant. Christmas Day we woke up and came back out and had the whole family deal but Christmas Eve was all about us.

Maggie & Brian opted for a cocktail style reception with Sushi, Mac & Cheese, and Taco stations, as well as a Pie bar and a some killer late night stations (who doesn’t love soft pretzels after dancing the night away?).  The food was amazing & the Taco bar was a massive hit.  The two ended the night with a sparkler exit, and of course a song to say goodbye.

Erin & Will | Elegant Pine Barn Inn Wedding

Erin & Will's elegant Pine Barn Inn wedding was a stunning celebration with no details forgotten.  The color palette was refined and hues of purple and pink were tastefully incorporated into the entire day.  The menswear selection of Navy blue really played up the color, which I absolutely loved.  Erin was (I think) the FIRST bride to book me for 2016 so of course she is also one of my favorites, but you also can't help but love her bubbly personality.  My favorite part of Erin & Will's wedding day was the first look (OK, and the deserts, but we'll get to those later).  Erin & Will decided to do a first look when we started working on the timeline.  They knew they wanted to get the majority of their portraits done earlier in their day so we chose to have them see each other for the first time in front of the Pine Barn and headed up to Erin's parent's house for the majority of their portraits and their wedding party portraits!  I always love to watch a first look unfold, and it often evokes more emotion than walking down the aisle (you get to have a minute with just the two of you... it's really so special!).  The rest of the day followed suit, with a beautiful ceremony, three amazing toasts, good food, and so much dancing at Pine Barn.  Congratulations Erin & Will, I'm so honored you chose me to document your day... Enjoy this glimpse into your day! elegant pine barn inn wedding

"Will planned a beach proposal. He took me out for a nice Italian dinner and warned me that he wanted to go for a walk afterward. Upon stepping onto the beach there was a blanket out and it said "Erin will you marry me?" In the sand. He got down on one knee and could barely speak - he's not extroverted like me so I can't imagine how he was feeling! He hired a secret photographer, paparazzi proposals, to catch it all!"

What was the inspiration for your wedding day?
We can't really say what the initial inspiration was. We chose a palette of colors and then worked around making them look elegant but still adding fun elements like our puzzle piece guestbook.

Enjoy the "engagement" ride and don't get too caught up on the little things. We were engaged for two years, so it made for a very laid back planning process (for the most part). :)

Shades of Purple and Succulents Wedding Inspiration | The Lodge at Raven Creek

Sometimes it's important to get together with other wedding vendors and creatives and come up with something completely your own!  We love collaborating with other creatives and teaming up to create dream day inspiration for our clients.  That's exactly what we did for this Spring Editorial at one of our favorite new wedding venues, The Lodge at Raven Creek.  This shades of purple and succulents wedding inspiration was crafted by a team of amazing vendors who we can't thank enough for making this 'dream' a reality! I teamed up with Brooke from the Lodge at Raven Creek to create a garden themed vision.  We are both big into succulents as well as saturated colors that we aren't seeing a ton of right now, but that make such a statement on your wedding day!  The living succulents are so great to utilize on your wedding day; think giving away your centerpieces or using them to start your own succulent garden as you embark on the rest of your lives together... what a great concept!  Our beautiful bouquets were put together by Monzie's Floral.  We also purchased succulents, moss and greens and created the table scape ourselves from our own vision!

We combined a pop of fuscia with a more subtle lavender and a deeper purple to create a gradient effect with the gorgeous gowns from Exclusively You in Bloomsburg.  The wedding gown, also from Exclusively You, is a gorgeous etherial look, with a beautiful lace bodice (which buttons up the whole back) and a tulle skirt.  Luke & Rachel from Venus Salon & Day Spa polished off our look with flawless hair and makeup, keeping with the tousled, Garden Party look.

Our look was pulled together with some gorgeous details featuring hand calligraphy by Flourish Grace (seriously, wait until you see those invitations), as well as the perfect little 'naked' cake, adorned with a few succulents to tie everything together.  Enjoy!
