Chester County Event Photographer | Wyebrook Farm

Business

It doesn’t get any more “farm to table” than dinner this past Saturday night at Wyebrook Farm, a sprawling 300+ acre masterpiece of sustainable agriculture created by Dean Carlson. The farm prides itself on creating the best food and healthiest animals without artificial pesticides, fertilizers, herbicides, hormones, or antibiotics.

A tour of the picturesque Chester County venue led to
incredible, old stone buildings,
lush and gorgeous landscaping with fig trees, a small vineyard, flowers, and yards,
a market offering fresh meats, cheeses, and produce,
a café with fresh, organic menu offerings
a beautiful stone garden with plants, flowers, and herbs available for purchase
a pond,
grazing cattle,
snorting pigs,
a friendly farm cat,
and so many more nooks and crannies.

The place was incredible. As a wedding photographer, I couldn’t help but picture a breezy wedding with guests mingling at picnic tables and wandering around the grounds. The weather that night gave up streaming sunlight, unreal clouds, and a quick summer storm.

Jeffrey Miller led the operation which featured a five course snout-to-tail feast, a “paean to pork”. As is always the case when Jeffrey Miller Catering is involved, the presentation and execution were second to none.

Guests started with a beverage station that offered hibiscus iced tea and a Tipsy Arnold Palmer as well as passed hors d’ouevres of mini pork tongue tacos, stuffed roasted fingerling potatoes, and chicharron with pulled pork.

The dinner group was escorted inside the restored 19th century fieldstone barn that featured stone walls, exposed beamed ceiling, and long communal tables dotted with white hydrangea, mason jars, and burlap runners.

I see that you’re salivating. Go ahead and clean yourself up; I’ll wait.

The evening was incredible. The venue, weather, food, and overall ambiance couldn’t be matched. Make a date of it and go to Wyebrook Farm. It really is that magical.

“It is vitally important that we can continue to say, with absolute conviction, that organic farming delivers the highest quality, best-tasting food, produced without artificial chemicals or genetic modification, and with respect for animal welfare and the environment, while helping to maintain the landscape and rural communities.”

Philadelphia Event Photographer | Glen Foerd Mansion | ABC Meeting
I had the pleasure of photographing the Association of Bridal Consultants’ meeting at Glen Foerd Mansion last week. Phyllis Jablonowski of Eventricity Floral and Event Design gave an impressive presentation on tabletop planning and setup, instructing the group on an array of napkin folds, proper table setting and spacing, rules for centerpiece design for optimal flow and appeal, and so many more tidbits. It was the perfect size group for an event like this. Coordinators were asking questions, offering advice, and bringing up trends and concerns within the industry. I felt quite lucky to be let into the thought processes going on in the ro ...

Scratch that, lighting is EVERYTHING. (Hello… the prefix “photo” means light.)Not only can lighting make or break the feel of your wedding, it can do the same for your wedding photography.
