Bucks County Wedding Photographer | Aldie Mansion | Angela + Davide
Angela made one thing clear to me before the wedding day: “We’re all Italian so it will be loud.” I was looking forward to it!
There were so many creatively beautiful touches that day. I had an inkling that might happen when I met with them months ago for their coffee shop engagement session and then received their 3D save-the-date.
The fingertip length veil that Angela wore was created from her mother’s own cathedral length veil.
There were a few things to worry about (like the dog sitter who never showed for their two doxies) but solutions were found and there was so much calm once Angela and Davide did their first look on the gorgeous grounds of Aldie Mansion in Doylestown. The weather was fantastic.
This gave us plenty of time to take advantage of the venue before all of the guests showed up and indulge in the VIPs.
One of my favorite moments of the day was when Angela and Davide danced in front of the big glass windows in Aldie Mansion and two little peeping ring bearers found front row seats.
Once of the best things about Aldie is that you have so many options. I have photographed three weddings there this year and each ceremony has had a different setup. This time the wedding party strode down the winding path behind the mansion to the ceremony site in the rear garden.
They shared a lovely hand-binding service before the big kiss and exit.
The cocktail hour was dappled with special mementos – framed engagement pictures dotting the library shelves, the guest sign-in puzzle, place cards on corks, olive oil and balsamic vinegar favors, and a scrumptious paella station that guests would find and keep for themselves.
The reception began with Angela and Davide’s first dance to the couldn’t-be-more-fitting “Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop” by Landon Pigg.
After a few choice toasts that called out Angela’s own childhood noise level, the group settled in for an evening of dining, smiling, and dancing.
The Oh, snap! Photo Studio was well utilized that evening as well.
I feel super lucky that I got Angela and Davide out for a breather at one point during the night.
It was a fantastic (loud, Italian) day!
I think that possibly, maybe I’m falling for you
Yes there’s a chance that I’ve fallen quite hard over you.
I’ve seen the paths that your eyes wander down
I want to come too
