Media, PA Wedding Photographer | Tyler Arboretum | Lindsay + Jordan

Wedding

I celebrated an incredible wedding with Lindsay and Jordan at Tyler Arboretum in Media, PA last month. I almost can’t get over how beautiful everything was. From Lindsay’s stunning curly updo (seriously keeping this one for my files!) and two sashes to Jordan’s timely recovery to the fabulous weather that day. There were smiles in every direction and utter perfection.  They live in Austin, Texas now but chose to have their wedding closer to where they met in high school so many years ago and the place they call “home”, Pennsylvania.

Think back a few months ago and you’ll remember Lindsay and Jordan’s engagement session at Valley Forge Park (see if you can spot a picture or two from that session at the wedding). This is the same beautiful couple, this time celebrating their new life together as husband and wife.

I was all about Lindsay and Jordan’s invitations (which they designed themselves). The envelope liner displayed their family trees. How have I never seen this before?! Pure genius!

It was a group effort to work the steamer and get the little wrinkles out of Lindsay’s long veil.

And here is one of the two sashes Lindsay wore. The reception one was exactly the same but in darker, fall colors. They were beautiful.

Jordan was quite dapper himself. I love this image from my second shooter, Georgi.

We were great on time and were able to get some bridal party and family formals covered before the ceremony.

Lindsay was a vision!

And her bouquet by Marcus Hook Florist was a gorgeous combination of peach and white roses, plum calla lilies, and eucalyptus.

The outdoor ceremony was had moments of humor, solemnity, grace, and pure love. It was presided over by a friend and pastor that the family had known for years.

The bridal party seemed like they had all known each other since birth.

After the formals, the newlyweds and I wandered off to get lost around the incredible grounds of the arboretum. I could do an entire post of the images we got.

We were swept up to the rustic reception on the tented terrace. String lights were overhead and burlap runners with centerpieces of purple tapers and peach roses and white hydrangea. Lindsay and her mother pretty much handmade everything – the table settings, favors, vases, etc.

Lindsay and Jordan shared their first dance to Adele’s “Make You Feel My Love”. I heart this song so much!

Lindsay’s father made the cake stand. It was a beautiful and intricately carved wood piece that Lindsay absolutely cherished.

It was such a beautiful day. Just everything. I would wrap this wedding up and revisit it all the time if I could (oh wait, I can… I have the pictures!). Lindsay and Jordan, thank you so much and congratulations!

I could make you happy
Make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn’t do
Go to the ends of the Earth for you
To make you feel my love,
To make you feel my love

Megan and Brian’s wedding make my little heart sing! I was smitten with them from the moment I met them via Skype one night and then in person at their engagement session (hi, Jake!) when they came down from New York to Philly.This wedding was all about the chicness of black and white with the whimsy/fun (and boy was it fun!) of sparkles, or, as Brian called them, sprinkles. With a wedding venue at the Please Touch Museum, you know you’re dealing with people who don’t take themselves too seriously.Megan’s details had just the right amount of bling. I love her sparkly belt.Oooh, sparkly envelope liners! It’s the little touches!If you don’t ...

I had the true honor of photographing Kelly and Kevin’s wedding a few weeks ago. They’re the gorgeous couple from the Valley Forge National Park engagement session. Though our daylight hours were short, the day was beautiful from beginning to end.I met up with Kelly and the ladies at her grandmother’s house. There was an air of mystery because no one except for Kelly’s sister, Katelyn, and her mother had seen the dress. Kelly kept it a surprise that played into her bridal shower, with the bridesmaids drawing what they thought it would be. Kelly says she tried on about 30 dresses before finding “the one” and it was pretty obvious - her mo ...
