A Stirling Guest Hotel Wedding ~ Liana & Alex

A Stirling Guest Hotel Wedding ~ Liana & Alex

 

Since I just got back from adventuring with these two on their honeymoon in Austria I wanted to share their enchanting wedding day at the charming Stirling Guest Hotel with you. A lot of the amazing details and style from their day reminded me of Sound Of Music which just made me chuckle as they chose to honeymoon right outside of Salzburg where lot of the filming for that movie took place. That should show you just how much of a nerd I am. lol

Liana and Alex are a sweet, unique and special couple. Their love for one another is evident and their whole day that just shined through. Just moments before Liana was about to walk down the aisle it started torrentially down pouring and everyone made a mad dash inside. But that didn’t matter they were just so excited to get married to each other and the romantic candlelit staircase was just fine by them. Throughout the rest of the night there was so much shared laughter and joy.

Liana and Alex chose to only have their closest friends and family there to celebrate on their wedding day. The warm intimate feel of their reception was like being invited over for a big family thanksgiving dinner. Absolute perfection. As their loved ones stood up and talked about how much they loved them and how proud they were of these two my heart swelled just like the grinch’s. It was a true honor to be there to witness the day they said I Do. It was an even bigger honor to adventure with them while on their honeymoon and capture them in all their newly wed adorableness. I left a sneak peak of their session at the end of this blog but you’ll have to stay tuned to see the rest. 🙂

Since I have such adventure loving couples I have reworked my wedding collections to offer an all inclusive collection where honeymoon sessions are included! That means no extra travel cost or lodging cost, it’s all worked right into the one time price. I also added a collection that has an add on adventure session for day after sessions if you want to go hike somewhere here in the states in your full wedding attire. If you want to hear more about those please feel free to go to my contract form, fill it out and let’s get started planning an adventure together. 🙂

Alex and Liana thank you so much for inviting me to capture so many of your special and timeless moments! I definitely hope to adventure more with you guys in the future! Keep on being the sweet, kind and amazing people you are! <3

A Lovely Wedding At The Beaumont Inn ~ Adam and Danielle

 

Adam and Danielle’s lovely Beaumont wedding was so full of absolutely precious memories to capture and tear jerking moments that I cried the whole time I was editing their wedding gallery. From the sweet reaction from dad during his first look at his little girl as a bride all the way to the reception as Danielle’s brother cheered on his sister as she gave her maid of honor speech. I don’t know if I stopped crying happy tears all day.

Danielle is an exceptionally beautiful woman on the outside but that has nothing on how beautiful her spirit is. She is so kindhearted, generous and open with everyone. She has a heart that just wants to love and give to others and I was so inspired and blown away by that. And of course Adam rightfully so is head over heals for her. His gentle and patient nature suits Danielle so well. Danielle is wonderful at many things but does tend to be forgetful and a little clumsy. I found out as we were hiking up a mountain for their engagement session but Adam always responds with so much patience and grace. I have a hard time even imagining Adam being cross with someone. They are both just such incredibly sweet people.

It didn’t surprise me at all that their friends and loved ones also had wonderful characters and were all lovely people. I was absolutely floored with how blessed I was to be invited to document this lovely wedding. Out of all the crazy adventures I get to be a part of the best are the ones full with love and commitment like Adam and Danielle’s wedding day was.

Adam and Danielle, thank you so much for trusting me with documenting your absolutely perfect wedding day and I hope you and your family enjoy these images for years to come. <3

A Hidden Valley Animal Adventure Wedding ~ Kacey and Nolan

A Hidden Valley Animal Adventure Wedding ~ Kacey and Nolan

 

Kacey and Nolan’s Hidden Valley Animal Adventure wedding was absolutely one of my favorite memories from July and I went to Mexico in July so that should put it in to perspective just how amazing this day was. From the sweet emotions from family and friends, getting to connect with a very friendly zebra, and Kacey and Nolan’s tender love for each other, this day left me in awe. I’m always so thankful to tell each and every love story and this day was no exception! Love is meant to be celebrated and although we all celebrate it in different ways across the world the feeling is always the same. That’s why I truly love being a part of so many different celebrations. Different countries, different traditions etc because no matter how different it is when true love is celebrated it’s always the same.

Hidden Valley Animal Adventure is a charming venue full of life and I’m so happy Kacey and Nolan chose it for their wedding day. The lodge has a very homey yet regal feeling and being surrounded by so many lovely animals made the experience quite a treats. Kacey, Nolan and I all got to visit with a very friendly zebra that had a special fondness for Nolan. We gave him quite a few butt rubs since they seemed to be his favorite, the zebra, not Nolan lol.

Throughout the day there so many sweet words shared from family and friends and there was a LOT of laughter. You could tell that this was a collection of the people who really meant the most to them in this world. It’s always such an honor to capture those precious memories. I fall in love with my job all over again at every wedding. What a blessing this job is, getting to witness new love every weekend and meeting couples who inspire me. Thank you Kacey and Nolan for asking me to document your unique and beautiful day! Enjoy scrolling through everyone! 🙂

Intimate Wedding At Willow Tree Grove

 

Matt and Diane’s intimate wedding at willow tree grove just made my heart sing, and if you feel like I say this about all my couple’s weddings, you are probably right. I only take on 25 weddings a year for a reason and that’s so I can be selective and choose to work with the couples who I really feel a connection to. It’s only August and already this year has been filled with such amazing couples and such special celebrations. Matt and Diane’s wedding was no exception, it was full of real, beautiful, heartfelt emotion, and so so SO much love. The love they had for each other was so apparent but I was also blown away at their families love for them and theirs for their family. That’s one of my absolute favorite things about weddings is seeing the connection between their families and ones they hold most dear. Those memories timeless and should be cherished always.

Matt first met Diane while he was out at eating and decided to hit on the prettiest waitress he ever laid his eyes on (can we pause for a moment to talk about what a gorgeous bride Diane was?! I mean seriously unreal! Perfection!), it worked and now here they are as husband and wife. (Don’t you just love hearing stories about how couples met and fall in love? I do!) Their love and respect for each other was so alive and vibrant. Diane lovingly wiped tears from his eyes during their ceremony and I think everyone in the audience was emotionally wrecked after that, in a good way. As the day continued the love, joy and tears never stopped. From the ceremony, the first dances all the way to the toasts the love kept on pouring out.

I’m so humbled and blessed I was asked to document this beautiful day! Thank you Matt and Diane for trusting me to document you love and preserve your memories! Congratulations and have the best first year of marriage! As 2019 weddings are filling up my calendar I can’t help but feel so thankful and excited to meet more couples like Matt and Diane, hear more loves stories and document more love. Get in touch today if you’re planning a wedding in 2019! I want to meet you and hear all about your story.

Traditional Indian Wedding At Friedman Farms ~ Steve & Shikha

 

I’m sitting here trying to express all of the love in my heart for Steve and Shikha and their beautiful celebration of their marriage and I just can’t find the right words. It was such an incredible honor to be asked to document their wedding! So much love, joy, and beauty wrapped up into one weekend. Their traditional Indian celebration made my heart sing! The big thing I took away from this experience is that Indian weddings get it really really right on how to celebrate love! I’ve never seen so much dancing, laughing and smiles! It warmed my soul! I’m telling you this was just a very special wedding.

Steve and Shikha are such an inspiring couple, unfailingly kind and generous and hopelessly in love with each other. Could it get any better?! I seriously do just fall in love with all my couples, I can’t help it. I’ve been so blessed to be impacted by each and everyone of my amazing couples. You all really do inspire me to be a kinder, more loving and better version of myself, (Sorry I’m rambling because I’m all emotional). and Steve and Shikha were no exception. I knew from the first time I met them that they were special and I’m so thankful to know them.

Steve and Shikha chose to have their wedding at the stunning Friedman Farms and it was such a beautiful place for all their friends and family to gather. We laughed, ate good food and danced the night away. Oh it made my heart so full! I’m so happy that there exists in this world a couple as sweet and loving as Steve and Shikha, and oh how excited I am to see all that they will journey on to do together. Lots of love to you both and thank you again for inviting me to document your love story!

Scroll through and enjoy all the beauty and love from their day and be sure to get in touch if you’re ready to celebrate your love! I can’t wait to meet you and document your love story. As my 2019 calendar starts filling up I’m overwhelmed with the amazing love stories I get to document and the people I get to meet. I feel SO blessed by all of you! <3

A Charming Union League Wedding

A Charming Union League Wedding

 

This charming Union League Wedding was such an honor to document! You know when you meet people who inspire you to be a better person? Well that’s Alison and Kyle, you can’t be around them without being inspired. They are genuinely kind souls with a hearts that long to help others. Just a couple days before their wedding they rescued their second puppy by adopting him even when everyone thought they were nuts. In a world where people tend to be cruel and mean to each other it’s always a treasure to meet people with big hearts.

Alison and Kyle are just the perfect match and I loved being invited along to witness their love story! Their day was full of beauty, laughter and epic partying! They had Go Go Gadjet preform at their reception and it was like being invited to be at a rock concert but even more fun. I love when guest get so into dancing and are signing every word along with the band! Those are my kind of people!

Every bit of their wedding day was so charming, from the venue, the flowers to their sweet reactions to seeing each other for the first time. Union League is such an amazing place to hold a wedding, it’s historic building was the perfect touch. Philadelphia is one of my favorite cities, such a diverse city, full of art and music and love. Although I do love traveling all over the world documenting love stories I always adore my local Philly weddings. Each one is so special and full of heart.

Ultimately the best weddings are those filled with the most heart, no matter where they are, how many guest, or how much money you spend, if you put your heart into your wedding it will be the day of your dreams. It’s all about a celebration of love. So whether you want to declare your love on a mountain top on in a church just make sure you put who you are as a couple into your day, as Alison and Kyle did.

Enjoy scrolling through!
