Katie + Seth: Fall Wedding at St. Anastasia & the Willows

Wedding

Perhaps you’ll remember Katie and Seth from their lovely e-session we did in Chestnut Hill a few months ago. If their e-session was lovely, their wedding was incredible. There was so much laughter (thanks Elizabeth, Mary, and Steph) and the weather was utterly perfect. Perfect temperature, just enough puffy clouds, just enough wind.

We started the day at The Willows in Radnor as the girls were getting ready and rocking out to Lady Gaga. There were tons of beautiful details, like the necklace and garter that Katie found on Etsy. (The gorgeous garter was made from an old antique brooch, new silk, lace borrowed from a dress, and blue silk.)




I fell in love with the florals. Flowers by Priscilla did a tremendous job with pink roses, purple waxflower, eucalyptus leaves, purple stock, and blue delphinium. Katie’s bouquet was soft and dainty while the other girls had bolder colors with deeper pink roses and purple statice.


Let me tell you that Katie’s dress was the perfect dress for the petite bride. It fit her like a glove. Her makeup was flawless, her curly hair was accented with small pieces of waxflower, and she looked stunning.






The ceremony was held at St. Anastasia’s Church in Newtown Square.



I love this last glance between father and daughter before they walked down the aisle.








Flowergirl Jaylyn made quite an impression on a certain guest…


And didn’t I mention that the girls were an absolute hoot?



We had some time when we returned to the Willows for pictures of the freshly married couple down by the pond. I adore the huge, um, willow tree there.






The geese were not incredibly welcoming but I’d have to say that they were the only unpleasant pieces of the day.


Katie and Seth had their first dance to John Hiatt’s “Have a Little Faith in Me” in the glassed-in observatory, surrounded by their friends and family. They had obviously practiced a few moves.




Perfect Setting Catering provided a scrumptious spread with risotto, meat, and vegetable stations.


And I had never before seen a cake like theirs. It was a 4 tier confection by Sweet Jazmines with a sugared blueberry trail down the front.


Thanks to Bucky Scott, guests were still having a blast on the dance floor as my awesome second shooter, Gary, and I left.


What a fantastic day. Katie and Seth, thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of it!

You see time, time is our friend
Cause for us, there is no end
And all you gotta do, is have a little faith in me
~ John Hiatt, “Have a Little Faith in Me”

Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | City Hall | Emily + Dan
Weddings at Philadelphia City Hall aren’t easy to navigate.  There are rules and regulations that you’ll only discover after you’ve gone through the process since they’re not posted online or in an easy phone call.  Ah, bureaucracy… Now let’s talk about Philadelphia City Hall weddings on Valentine’s Day, an entirely separate beast!  Emily and Dan contacted me last fall about the prospect of getting married on Valentine’s Day at City Hall.  This involved a lot of waiting and a few calls for the list to open up for their chosen day.  Unsurprisingly, it’s a popular day to tie the knot.  So popular that th ...

Lehigh Valley Wedding Photographer | Bear Creek Mountain Resort | Julie & Chuck
Julie and Chuck are nontraditional. They’re about as low key as you can get while still throwing a gorgeous wedding. They chose Bear Creek Mountain Resort for their wedding venue since the two of them go snowboarding there all the time. It was raining all week leading up to the wedding but that day was beautiful – sun and stunning blue skies. You might remember these two from their beachy engagement pictures from Ocean City, MD. We got the shore and the mountains represented.They saw each other long before the ceremony that day and they were a-okay with that. We did do a first look for Chuck’s first time seeing Julie in the dress.  ...
