A Spring Wedding at Lake Raystown

Lauren + Chris

It’s no secret I love the outdoors. Give me a day on the lake with a boat, sunshine, and good company and I’m set. When Lauren and Chris came to me about their spring wedding at Lake Raystown I was more than on board (pun intended).

And then last fall I met up with this adorable duo for their engagement session at The Winery at Hunters Valley. Not only was I super excited as this place is very special to me (it’s practically in my back yard with the most beautiful view of the Susquehanna River and it is where Ryan and I got married ten years ago!), but the more I got to know Lauren and Chris, I knew they were my kind of people. Relaxed. Funny. Up for anything I suggested. And in love. So in love.

I left that session refreshed. Lauren and Chris are just the kind of people that make your heart smile. I knew their spring wedding on the lake could not come soon enough.

The Wedding Day…

Que the angels because their wedding day was an absolute dream. Nestled amongst the mountains, family and friends gathered at Lake Raystown Resort at a lookout point for the wedding ceremony. It was full of lush, soft florals (perfect for spring!) and beautiful violin music courtesy of the groom’s cousin. And as Chris’s daughter and Lauren made their way down the aisle to him, there was no hiding his contagious smile.

Fast forward to the reception and we were wow-ed! Lauren’s vision was a dream come true from the golden arch covered in dreamy florals that framed the bridal table to the stunning golden centerpieces that gave the whole room a modern, yet whimsical touch. And the best part? Chris and some of his friends made the golden pieces especially for Lauren so that her dream could become their wedding day reality.

As we enjoyed the spring weather in the resort’s indoor/outdoor reception space, we captured their romantic and heartwarming first dance as husband and wife. We witnessed tear jerking dances with their parents and their daughter (oh and for more of that make sure to check out Lauren’s first look with her dad below!). We enjoyed a delicious dinner and decadent dessert. All the while documenting the fantastic time Lauren, Chris, and their guests were having. This was a fun group of people for sure!

And to top it all off, we got to sneak away for a few moments with just the bride and groom right before the last of the day’s light left us. Not only do Lilly and I get excited for more time to photograph our couples at sunset, but these times can also be a welcomed break for a bride and groom to have a few private moments connecting together amidst the business of the day.

Enjoy!

Overall, I cannot be more thrilled to share this beautiful spring wedding with you all! Thank you to everyone who took part and helped make Lauren and Chris’s day the magical moment that it was. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Maines!
