Brianne + Scott’s wedding at Pen Ryn Mansion

Wedding

I hardly know where to begin with Bree and Scott. This is the gorgeous couple I shot at Longwood Gardens back in March for their engagement session.

They celebrated their wedding at Pen Ryn Mansion in Bensalem, PA, about 30 minutes outside of Philadelphia, on a perfect day in October. It was sunny and 70 degrees after several days of miserable rain and temperatures in the mid 50s. The breeze coming off the Delaware River was just right.



The guys got ready down the street while the ladies had the run of the mansion.



Bree looked incredible. Her ballgown from Ashley’s Bridal Couture had intricate beading and Belle-type pickups. I adore the red bloom she had in her hair.








The ladies were in candy apple red floor length evening gowns, complete with red shoes and red opera gloves.



Bree’s mother, Kim, is an incredibly accomplished quilter and created the ring pillow for the day. Sunflowers are Bree’s favorite so they made appearances throughout the day.



Scott is a Marine and showed up in his dapper dress blues. He was stationed in Hawaii and the couple moved there a few days after the ceremony for a very extended honeymoon. There ceremony ended with a dramatic Hollywood kiss and sword arch.







The bridal party was one of the largest I’ve ever worked with. Ten bridesmaids and ten groomsmen and one ring bearer. And holy cow what a good looking group! Bree is the only girl out of 4 and her brothers insisted on picking her up.




After the formals, Bree, Scott, and I wandered the fabulous grounds down to the river.




The reception started with gorgeous light coming in the large windows in the ballroom. The place looked great. Seating cards were handmade and attached to mini pumpkins.



The happy couple danced to “Far Away” by Nickelback. This song was especially meaningful to them, a story I’ll let them tell you sometime.


Even dusk was gorgeous that day…


Scott and Bree had agreed not to smash the cake. Seems that Scott was the only one who didn’t see this coming.



It was a great night and the bridal party was a blast on the dance floor. I have to give a shoutout to adorable bridesmaid, Ashley, who kept me up to date on the Phillies playoff game that night (they came back to win it 7-4) and also picked out the bridesmaid’s bouquets (which she got from Rilene and Lawrence’s wedding pictures). Infinitely Yours was responsible for the bouquets and gorgeous ceremony florals.


The ladies in red and the crowd were so much fun and believe me when I tell you that Marines know how to party!




What a great day. Special thanks to Hieu for his second shooting skills.

Bree and Scott, have a fantastic, tropical life in Hawaii. We’re all incredibly jealous and miss you to pieces.

I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you’ll be with me
and you’ll never go
~ Nickelback, “Far Away”

Delaware County Wedding Photographer | Gables at Chadds Ford | Oz-inspired Styled Shoot
It’s not every day that I get to show up in a faraway land and just play with colors, textures, and some of the most amazing people in the wedding industry (actually, it happens more than is probably fair!).I was chatting with Sarah of Juniper & Dash late last year and came up with the idea for a beautiful styled wedding shoot inspired by Disney’s new Oz: the Great and Powerful. We led with an emerald green (oh yes, this was before Pantone came out with their color of the year) with accents of glistening gold and poppy red.We gathered a great and powerful team and created a magical shoot that sparkles with details and beauty. The talent ...

Located on the upper portion of the former 1915 Theatre Auditorium, this place has 7000 square feet of event space.
