Montgomery County Wedding Photographer | William Penn Inn | Laura + Ed

Wedding

Laura and Ed’s wedding day couldn’t have gone more smoothly. The weather was perfect and it was just gorgeous at the William Penn Inn out in Montgomery County. The ladies in guava gathered in one of the suites as Laura got ready. Her Maggie Sottero wedding gown was a vision! It was about the third dress she tried on. I can totally understand why she’d stop looking after this! I loved the millions of billowing layers of tulle.

The bracelet she wore was borrowed from her mother and she had her new initials monogramed in blue onto an old lace handkerchief.

We grabbed a few of Ed’s formals before the ceremony as the guests started to arrive.

The ceremony site is really beautiful. An iron gazebo is surrounded by lush trees, bushes, and a lawn. The entire ceremony felt so private and secluded. I loved the vibrant pinks and oranges against all of that green. It was so deliciously summery.

I’m still amazed that 9 bridesmaids independently chose 9 different dresses for the wedding.

I loved that the group recessed to the Proclaimers’ “I’m Gonna Be”.

Immediately after the ceremony, Laura and Ed stole away for a few minutes.

Then I got them for a few more to bask in some of the most perfect light. If I could create light, this would be it! There were guests to greet and a mac & cheese bar to be had so we didn’t stay long.

After the bridal party introductions, Laura and Ed danced their first dance to “Let My Love Open the Door”.

I’m pretty sure that everyone was out on the dance floor at some point that night.

Laura and Ed dated for a day when they were 13 years old. I’m so glad that they reconnected so many years later and that I got to be a part of this fantastic day. Congratulations, you two!

My problem with Christina and Jason’s wedding was there was waaaay too much good stuff going on!  I was tempted to separate this post into two just so I don’t tire you out by the end but I think you have it in you.  After all, you’ll want to see how gorgeous this day was and how much fun these two had! The bride and groom each started at their family homes.  I was with Christina in Holland, PA, where the house was aflutter with gold sequined bridesmaids and a pooch named Dexter. Long before the big day, Christina purchased her wedding gown. Through some magic alterations, and the keen eye of her mother, it was transformed from a hig ...

Yorklyn, Delaware Wedding Photographer | Private Home | Si + Tanard
Si and Tanard’s wedding was not your normal wedding. Their wedding spread over two days and had one primary focus: fun! Given what I saw when I met them for their engagement session, this was no surprise to me.A small group of guests were invited out to the family’s farm, Seven Oaks, for a “dress rehearsal” that Friday night.  They were told that formal pictures would be taken then so they should dress up.What they did not tell them was that Friday wasn’t a dress rehearsal at all – it was the actual ceremony. The elated and emotional couple chose to do a first look that day for some uninterrupted time that would allow them to mingle w ...

Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology | Robin + Chris
Robin and Chris came to me like many before them – they were thinking of having a small, easy wedding ceremony at City Hall and wanted some beautiful pictures to commemorate the day.  I talked them through the opaque process and the ins and outs of Philadelphia City Hall weddings as they worked the logistics out on their end.  As they got closer to the day, they realized that they had more guests than originally planned and the date itself was getting tricky. I had posed the idea of getting married somewhere else Quaker style or with an outside officiant.  City Hall had been a big draw but this idea was looking more and more attractive. ...
