Bucks County Wedding Photographer | Aldie Mansion | Meredith + Dwayne

Wedding

We could not have asked for a more gorgeous day for Meredith and Dwayne’s wedding. It was perfection. No humidity, not a cloud in the sky, and the temperature was just right. The entire day felt good. I fell in love with Meredith and Dwayne that day. Meredith’s jubilance was absolutely infectious. She’s a hardworking, type-A principal at a local Philly school but, on her wedding day, she was all smiles and lightness.

I (along with the bridesmaids) admit that her gown was a surprise. It was a fabulous frock but it didn’t seem quite right for our bride.

At that point, there is no way she could have worn anything else.

Thanks to a first look before the ceremony, we had plenty of time to make use of Aldie Mansion’s beautiful property. There are so many spots for great pictures, inside and out. This old brick mansion has so much charm and character.

Meredith and Dwayne entered and danced their first dance as husband and wife to the classic “At Last” by Etta James.

First dance for wedding couple at Aldie Mansion
Meredith’s father passed away just a few months before the wedding. She wore his wedding band around her neck that day. Instead of a traditional father/daughter dance, she called up all fathers and daughters in attendance to dance together. She shared this dance with all of the important “fathers” in her life.

Carolyn, Meredith best friend and neighbor from childhood, got some laughs as the reception kicked off.

It was an incredible day and I am so glad I was able to be with these two to be a part of it all!

I found a dream, that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known

Jenica + Heath: Jewish Wedding at the City Club of San Francisco
I have kind of gotten behind in my posting but I wanted to share this beautiful wedding between Jenica and Heath that I shot with the talented Lisa of Lisa Leigh Photography.My day started with the groom and his groomsmen at Barber Lounge in San Francisco. I don't know how they came across it but it was simply perfect and oh-so-trendy. It's on the third floor in an old building in SOMA and has these great old windows across the front of the reception area. It stretches back with lots of space filled with hair stylists, masseuses, and, of course, barbers. If you get a chance, I highly recommend checking this place out. It's just so unli ...
