Rustic Wedding

Knowlton Mansion, Philadelphia, PA Wedding: Carl + Julia

When I think of Carl and Julia, I think "pure romance." I know so much of their story, because over the course of wedding planning, I became super close with Julia- so I'm going to list some reasons why I think they have such an amazing story.

-They grew up in the same neighborhood. Their moms are best friends!

-When Carl proposed, he set up an elaborate scavenger hunt that involved their grade school teacher, multiple family members, and of course, a stunning diamond.

-While Carl was overseas serving in the Army as a pilot, he made sure to send Julia flowers every month on their anniversary.

-They both ended their wedding vows with the same sentence.

To sum it up, they are absolutely perfect for each other. Their rustic/bohemian wedding at Knowlton Mansion, was the culmination of their relationship and I think everyone in the room was so happy to see them reunited at last, after a long eleven months apart. Thank you Carl for your service and thanks to Carl AND Julia for being just absolutely adorable and hilarious.

Jack's Barn, Oxford, NJ Wedding: Nando and Ali

When I arrived at Jack's Barn, Nando was arranging chairs, along with his closest friends and family, while Ali took at break from setting up, to get her hair and makeup done. When all was complete, it was just as Ali described it would be in our previous conversations, but better- sunflowers, royal blues, mismatched furniture, small mementos and photographs everywhere, countless string lights leading to gorgeous chandeliers... pinch me. 

Ali, Nando, and their family headed over to Twenty Belvidere, just down the road for their getting ready, first look, and family photos. The mansion was filled with charm, and again, I needed to be pinched! 

While leads me to Ali and Nando... not only was their wedding just breathtaking, but they are just the most adorable couple you've ever seen. So, so, so in love. Just as we were waiting for Ali to come down the steps for their First Look, Nando appeared to be nervous, and yes, he just saw her an hour ago (maybe less), but that's how in love they are. They are so sweet, and so thoughtful, I need more of them in my life!

I can't think of any other way I would want to welcome the wedding season for 2015, rather than with Ali and Nando! Congrats to you two, it was such an honor to capture your wedding day. A special thank you to an awesome friend for assisting me in capturing this great day, Sue!

Barn on Bridge Wedding Photographer: (More!) Kelly & Kevin

Kelly and Kevin are a couple that everyone wants to be around, they are both hilarious and so animated! They are also soooo in love! Their engagement session was a dream to shoot- it was easy to see how much they adore each other and translated so well on camera. Needless to say, I was pumped for their wedding at The Barn on Bridge in Collegeville, Pennsylvania to watch the two of them have the time of their lives with their closest friends and family. 

Some of my favorite highlights of their day:

-Kelly's father peeking over her shoulder as she read a card from her future hubby the morning of their wedding.

-Their rescue greyhound, Fabio, as a handsome Ring Bearer.

-A super silly co-matron-of-honor speech.

-The groom and his mother getting ready for the big day. 

-Tons of fun dance moves allllll. night. long.

The previous post is all about the beautiful bride, Kelly, getting ready- so if missed that, don't forget to check it out here!

Barn on Bridge Wedding Photographer: Kelly's Getting Ready

A lot of people ask me what my favorite part of a wedding day is... and that's a really tough question. There is so much goodness in one day- everyone is soooo overjoyed and dressed their best. One of my favorite parts of the day, is photographing the bride getting ready. It happens so naturally and unfolds beautifully. During this time, brides need very little direction and maybe because they are focused on their gorgeous gown, they don't really notice the camera. Not to mention, all of the gorgeous details I get to photograph- the shoes, the jewelry, the sash... all so pretty! I love to spend at least an hour with my brides getting ready, and of course I'll take more time if I can, because I love to capture them on their happiest day, wearing the most beautiful gown, hair and makeup perfectly done, and so much excitement in their hearts. We also did a "First Look" with the bride and her bridesmaids- that was adorable (see below)!


Here's the story of one beautiful bride, on her best day ever- Kelly at Barn on Bridge.

Bogey's Club and Cafe Wedding: Everest & Allison

They were married on a warm June day. Every handmade detail was placed perfectly, the girls were looking gorgeous in their pale pink dresses, and the guys ready to go in their suspenders. I can't imagine how long Allison, the stunning bride, and her bridesmaids worked on every DIY detail of her rustic/romantic wedding. The ceremony set the tone of the wedding- there wasn't a dry eye in the room by the time the first kiss came. After Everest and Allison became husband and wife, we took the bridal party to a beautiful white barn Allison had found where we had some fun! Finally, we headed to Bogey's Club and Cafe in Sewell, New Jersey for the white tent reception. Everest and Allison's wedding was absolutely perfect! Enjoy!
