Wedding Photography at Pen Ryn Mansion in Bensalem, PA: Lisa + Mike

Wedding

I admit that I was a little worried about Lisa and Michael’s big day. They say rain is good luck but I don’t know many couples who would choose “good luck” over having the outdoor ceremony they imagined. Luckily, the rain was only a threat. We waited a few minutes and it all passed and the day was just fantastic. You might remember Lisa and Mike from their engagement session around Rittenhouse Square last fall.

Take a look at how their day unfolded. The stage was set in Bensalem, PA at Pen Ryn Mansion. The pearls belong to maid of honor, Jessica, as Lisa’s something borrowed.

Lisa looked in.cred.i.ble! Her slender build was just made to be in a wedding gown. And I can’t even tell you how much I adored the flower in her hair. She just had this elegant grace about her that I can’t even describe.

One of my favorite moments of the day was the first look (or “reveal”) before the wedding when Mike first laid eyes on his lovely bride. His expression was pricesless!

We took some time to wander around the grounds for pictures of just the two of them before the rush of the ceremony and wedding day really began.

Guests mingled on the front patio as we waited for the final word on the ceremony location.

Their ceremony blended a little bit of his Catholic faith with her Jewish faith.

We got a few formals before heading in for the cocktail hour and reception.

Lisa and Mike danced their first dance to Jefferson Starship’s “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”.

And then Mike and his daughter, Haley, adorably crashed the father daughter dance.

I loved the Mr. and Mrs. signs that Lisa had for the backs of the chairs.

The reception was a ton of fun. Schaffer Sound took care of the party that night.

This was a hugely fun (and attractive!) group they brought out that evening. It’s not a party unless I’m out there on the dancefloor shimmying along to the beats.

And if you’ve followed this blog at all, you know I can’t pass up the food shots.

We were given a glorious treat by wedding guest, Sorin, shaking his thang to Billie Jean. Someone seriously needs to hire this guy for parties. He was a smash hit. With moves like this, it’s no wonder!

Lisa and Mike, what a fantastic wedding. All the best to you both this year and forever!

This love in my heart that I’m feelin’ for you

I don't do very many bridal shows. I love meeting 100s of brides face to face but it hard to find the time and energy to do it. And let me tell you that I take my shows quite seriously. If you've been to one, you'll know that I come prepared with a room. Yes, a room. Walls and sofa and all! I guarantee that you won't see anything else like it there. I want you to be able to sit down, take a load off, peruse some albums, and feel relaxed to ask any questions at all.Tomorrow is my second and last bridal show of the spring. You should absolutely come out if you want to check out some hot bridal fashions at the fashion show or take ...

Okay, I can't keep writing novels when I post pictures! I'm so eager to tell the story and share that I write way too much, obsess over the collages, and it takes me way too long to post!I'm going to try to be better. I'm going to backtrack so that I can share a wedding that I shot last month with the wonderful Julie of Julie Cheshire Photography. Check it out!Sheesh! I have never taken as many pictures as I did at the wedding of Toni and Mike. Perhaps it was the pretty and laid-back bride, Toni, or maybe it was the fabulous setting of Falkner Winery, or maybe it was just that SoCal sun! Whatever the reason, Julie and I filled up over 3 ...

Remember the oddity that was the snowstorm in late October? Yeah, so do Stephanie and Nick who had their wedding that day! Stephanie, a self-proclaimed type A, was a little concerned about the wintry mix that had shown up way too early in the year. Despite the wonky weather, the day went off beautifully! This is the same couple that wasn’t looking for love that I was telling you about a few months ago from their engagement session around Chestnut Hill.I met with Stephanie at the Sheraton not far from the wedding venue. She was there with her mother and sister watching the flakes through the window. She changed into her gorgeous Vera Wan ...
