The Knot Best of Weddings 2015

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.

Smithville Mansion, Mount Holly, NJ Engagement: Chris + Victoria

I've known Chris and Victoria for years- we've shot countless family sessions, and it was only a matter of time before this type of session was going to happen- their engagement session- and I couldn't be happier for them! They are the perfect match, along with their son, Aiden, they handle life with a toddler with a smile, and look amazing doing it. We headed to Smithville Mansion in Mount Holly and no matter how many times I've shot there, it never gets old. There are so many different spots around each corner, and it means something different to each couple. We were hoping to catch the fall foliage before it all came down, and luckily, we did! We were able to get some shots with Aiden before just focusing on the newly engaged couple. I'm so excited to be there to document Chris and Victoria's (and Aiden, too) big day next June!
