Perkasie Wedding Photographer | Jen + Casey

Wedding

I dare you to find me a bride with more expressions than Jen. Jen and Casey’s wedding was phenomenal. It was held at her parent’s house in Perkasie, PA where her other two sisters had been married as well. The place looked incredible and the day was gorgeous. More than anything, though, was the happiness that surrounded everyone that day. I’m pretty sure that a map of the area would have shown a warm bubble of love and bliss centered directly over this “backyard wedding”. I can’t even count the number of times I heard Jen say, “I’m so happy!”. Now that’s a good wedding!  (By the way, you’ve seen them before from their 30th Street Station engagement session not too long ago.)

The timeline for this wedding was a bit different. It started with a cocktail hour. Jen and Casey wanted to mingle with their guests for as long as possible. For them, they wanted less focus on the details and more on the people. Jen started out the day in a one-shoulder floor length pink gown.

I love this one of the best man writing his speech in the gazebo before the ceremony.

One of the best parts about this wedding was Jen’s dress. A million brides can talk about wanting to pass down their wedding gown to their daughters. This time it actually happened. Jen changed into her mother’s veil and wedding dress. This dress was worn 40 years before, almost down to the day. This time it was paired with a bright pink sash and hot pink heels.

While the ladies were getting ready, I got a few shots of the guys.

Jen was taking quite a while getting ready so I went back to check in on her. There was a bit of a wardrobe malfunction. The old zipper had broken and they were literally sewing Jen into her dress. How did this bride respond to this emergency? All smiles and laughter!

The couple opted for a first look before the ceremony on the front of the house while the guests were around the back.

The ceremony was beautiful. Tealights in mason jars and bright arrangements of wildflowers hung in mason jars down the petal strewn aisle. A string quartet played. One of her bridesmaids, Jessica, was to read a poem that had been misplaced. She got up to the microphone and began with, “Roses are red, violets are blue…” It was a hit.

The officiant talked to us about what Jen and Casey saw in each other. Despite being a tomboy for years, one of the qualities Casey saw in Jen was her sexiness. This got the crowd in giggles.

As I said, everything looked incredible. A tent was set up between the ceremony and the house for the reception. It was next to the family’s pond and the whole setup was like a dream.

Tables were dressed in black tablecloths with black and write damask runners and pops of color from the orchid centerpieces.

The escort cards were postcards that Jen and Casey used to handwrite notes to each of their guests (including me!) in thanking them for being there and letting them know which table was theirs.

Jen and Casey entered the tent and wowed guests with a salsa dance before the blessing and speeches. Everyone raved about this perfect pairing. Family and friends were so loving and passionate.

The food was divine. I loved their cupcake table with so many different kinds of treats, Jen and Casey carving into a larger red velvet cupcake.

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 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 arr ...
