I am so honored that you stopped by today! The more trips I take around the sun, the more I find the beauty in each part of the journey. Being married for over ten years now (17 together!), I have learned quite a bit about the ebbs and flows of marriage. It is my mission to serve and support you no matter what stage of life you are in.
One of our last weddings of the 2018 season was a Cork Factory Hotel winter wedding with this amazing duo in Lancaster, PA. When Hannah first reached out to me about photographing her wedding I was honored as I always am, but really honored this time as we went to college together. And as I got to know Shawn and Hannah a bit more it turned out we had so many things in common. Shawn graduated from Millersville – Brooke’s alma mater and Hannah and I grew up just miles from one another without ever knowing it!
Hannah and Shawn met in 2014 after they both relocated to Philadelphia for work. Little did they know this City of Brotherly Love would come to meet so much to them and be their first of many cities they would call home together. When they found themselves in Florida for Shawn’s job they also found themselves engaged a few months later. Planning a wedding from a different state can be tough, but these two were pros with their laid back attitudes.
They were going to need those relaxed vibes more than they could have realized as they then found themselves packing up and moving to Chicago for work mid wedding planning.
Amidst all the craziness, Hannah and Shawn (with the help of a rockstar friendor team – see below!), planned out a beautiful winter wedding day where their families and friends melted together in celebration. Their colors of burgundy and navy blue were the perfect fit for the warm indoor atmosphere of the Cork Factory Hotel. And can we please talk about Hannah’s stunning faux fur shawl and golden details?
But the absolute best part was getting to witness two people so deserving of love become husband and wife. From the private moments in their rooms reading one another’s love notes before seeing each other for the first time. From the celebratory moments with their bridal party that had us laughing just as much as they were. To the beautiful ceremony and words spoken aloud as they gave themselves to each other. To the lively and fun-loving moments of the reception where the dance floor was packed all night long.
Congratulations Hannah and Shawn! May your love continue to grow as you adventure through marriage together!
