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.

A wedding day full of history at Alverthorpe Manor

Allison + John

Their wedding day took place at a local church near and dear to their hearts followed by a reception at Alverthorpe Manor. Rewind back to the beginning, where Allison and John met in Boston as freshman attending college at Northeastern University. By their third year of dating on and off they made it official and the rest is history. In the four years following they moved four times for Allison’s work and most recently found themselves settling near Philadelphia close to their families and friends.

All of that traveling has left them with a passion for trying new food and exploring new cities which typically includes a brewery stop somewhere along the way. One special night while living in Cleveland they stopped to check out the view of the city from a new park as they explored after dinner at their favorite restaurant. John saw the romantic moment unfolding and asked Allison to be his wife. Nowadays these newlyweds are soaking up their first year of marriage and taking care of their adopted pup, Scout.

The details…

Their wedding day was full of family tradition. Allison got ready in her childhood bedroom at her parents’ house and their ceremony was at an adorable local church founded by her grandparents. How amazing to start their greatest journey in the presence of so much rich history and meaning!

The reception at Alverthorpe Manor was full of laughter, good food, art, and dancing. Although it was a bit chilly, guests snuggled up with blankets thoughtfully provided by the bride and groom during cocktail hour and warmed up quickly in the heated outdoor reception space.

The entire day was so relaxed and everyone was so welcoming. One of my favorite fall wedding days for sure! Congratulations Allison and John (and Scout)!

a rainy wedding day worthy of His praise

Emily + Nate

This stunning wedding day, believe it or not, came from a rainy wedding day towards the end of my 2019 season. When I arrived at The Barn at Silverstone in Lancaster, PA, though the rain trickled down, the vibe was relaxed. It was full of joy. It was overflowing with love. Emily and Nate were at peace with the day even though the rain wasn’t ideal. They kept their hearts focused on God and the true purpose of their day.

We all crossed our fingers, said our prayers, and prepared for the backup plan with the timeline and outdoor photographs. But in the closest moments leading up to the time to venture outside for portraits, the rain stopped. Stopped. And not only did this happen for the portraits before the ceremony, but afterwards, too. As soon as my time with them was complete outside and we retreated back indoors, the clouds opened up again and the rain poured. If that’s not a sign from the Lord, I don’t know what is.

The Details…

Truthfully, the day flowed flawlessly. From a beautifully worded ceremony (complete with group prayer and parental high fives!) to a super fun reception with good food and a packed dance floor. These are the wedding days I live for. Intentional couples keeping their marriage at the forefront of their hearts and minds. A perfect example of my kind of people and I am honored to have been the one to capture their day. And I found Emily and Nate’s rainy wedding day mentality so inspiring that I refer back to it on my own “rainy days”.

a summer wedding at the cork factory

Ashley + Mike

Flashback to the hottest day of last summer (which for me really is a nice thought because the older I get the less I like the cold). Ashley and Mike’s summer wedding at The Cork Factory in Lancaster, PA was a stunner. Her Christina Wu wedding gown was the perfect fit with her Badgley Mischka shoes and his Calvin Klein tux. It was a beautiful mix of luxurious details with personalized and unique Etsy artist creations.

The Details…

We snuck away to the Lancaster County Central Park for their first look. With the most adorable little white house at the Rockford Plantation as our backdrop, Ashley made her way around the corner and Mike spun around for the first look at his bride. His reaction was priceless and I couldn’t help but marvel at how cool, calm, and collected they were and yet excitement pumped through their veins.

Lilly and I had photographed Ashley and Mike the previous year for their engagement session (CLICK HERE TO SEE!) and we knew it would be just like that day. Easy. Relaxed. Fun. And full of love. And it was. Their entire day was just so full of love and it was one of those weddings that we didn’t want to leave.

Scroll through for all the beauty and make sure to check out the most amazing reception entrance I’ve ever had the honor to capture (disclaimer: no one caught on fire during the entrance of the bride and groom.)

Linwood Estate Summer Wedding Inspiration

The first time I stepped onto the property at Linwood Estate I fell in love. It is full of grandeur and romance, yet intimately tucked away in the countryside of Carlisle, Pennsylvania surrounded by flowing fields. The property also has one of the coolest histories stemming from the couple who lived their decades ago and raised their six girls there. When the collaboration for an inspiration shoot came up, I was immediately on board and couldn’t wait to dive in. We wanted to highlight the gorgeous, bright indoor space that Linwood’s mansion provides for smaller ceremonies and intimate receptions, as well as, the beautiful, soft color palette of greens and pinks that unfolds on the property when everything is in full bloom. Enter sweet, sweet Danielle of Your Sweetest Day Events. Not only does she live up to her name, but she exceeds it. With her help we were able to bring in several talented vendors to help bring the vision together.

When looking for a couple to be at the center of it all, I knew I wanted a true couple deep in love that would take my prompts and direction as naturally as could be. Enter Katherine and Waylen. Their names just sound like one of those couples you read about in the best of romantic novels. And as fate would have it, they were celebrating their first wedding anniversary the weekend of the shoot! I knew it was destiny. What better way for these two lovebirds to celebrate than to get all dressed up and literally relive their wedding day? Katherine had us picking our jaws up off the floor and Waylen kept the mood light and full of laughter.

Surrounded by dreamy pink, mauve, and white florals and details, Katherine stunned in BHLDN’s Cassia Gown. And as we moved from on location on the property to another, you could just see the love exuding from these two bringing the vision to life in a way that was more perfect than we ever could have imagined. One of my favorite parts of the day was when Katherine and Waylen’s fun and energetic spirits shined through and we had them running down Linwood’s long lane amongst the trees and gardens (puddles and all!).

All in all, it was a beautiful collaboration amongst wedding vendors that I am so honored to say have become friends. I hope that these photographs not only showcase the talents and creations involved (I mean, have you seen the tablescape yet?), but offer inspiration to any couple looking for a light and airy, romantic wedding. And make sure to scroll all the way down for all of the amazing participating vendors and links to their websites! If you’re planning your wedding day you will for sure want to check them out (and even if you’re not and just want to add some pretty to your day!).
