Britt and Jeff’s wedding at Cairnwood Estate was simply beautiful! We weren’t deterred by a little bit of rain early in the day which cleared out to open sunny skies, and later gorgeous rain clouds again rolling in. We loved the feeling of nervousness and excitement that existed in the bridal suite while Britt was getting ready. There was a definitely an aire of elegance to the day, with beautiful florals surrounding the grounds and vintage table settings. Britt and Jeff and their bridal party were such fun to work with! Thanks for having us there to photograph your day!
Celeste and Brian’s beautiful garden wedding took place at one of our favorite venues, Bartram’s Gardens. We loved Celeste’s Addie dress by Monique Lhuillier and her florals by the talented Sullivan Owen. There were a lot of beautiful personal touches by the couple including handmade Lemoncello, and their candle stand was a prop for the movie The Last Airbender. The whole wedding had a nice casual outdoor garden appeal, and we loved photographing the couple together!
Additional shout outs go to Ken Correll from Diverse Catering providing the delicious food. Also Hi Society Productions for providing music, and hitting off a a series of Mummer standards complete with white parasols. It was a fun night and we’re so thankful for Brian and Celeste for having us there to photograph it!
Bethany and Lou were married at the Tyler Arboretum in Media, PA. I love the nature and amazing trees at this location. And Bethany and Lou are just too cute! I had an absolute pleasure working with Bethany and Lou! And a big thank you to my AMAZING second shooter, Jacklyn Greenberg of JAG Studios!
Eleanor and Drew’s wedding took place at the Durham Creek Tree Farm & Hippodrome, a family friend’s property. The ceremony was in the grass surrounded by daisy fields, and Eleanor looked stunning in her vintage inspired Janice Martin Couture dress. She also donned a floral crown by Lilies and Lavender, and Anthropologie shoes. The couple spoke of their favorite part of the day, “The storm approaching as we said our vows under the open sky, thunder during the ceremony, and the first few raindrops coming down as we walked back down the aisle. It all made an already emotionally intense time feel even more powerful.” It was a beautiful wedding to photograph, and Eleanor and Drew were the perfect couple!
Special thanks to Meg Hotchkiss from La Vie En Rose Events who coordinated the day. Thanks Eleanor and Drew for having us there to photograph your wedding!
Inna and Donato’s wedding on the river in Brooklyn was so lovely. The venue, Giando on the water, has amazing views of the Williamsburg bridge and Manhattan. The wedding had a 1920’s/1930’s feel with a little old hollywood thrown in. Bridesmaid Michelle LaRocca designed the couples paper goods to match the theme. We had a blast walking around the waterfront area with the whole bridal party and taking pictures. I love how the urban setting contrasted so nicely with the super elegant bridal party. Thanks Inna and Donato for having us photograph your wedding!
Lauren and Jonah’s wedding was a blast! We loved Lauren’s look with her glasses, her elegant Saja dress, and glitter (!) shoes. Falls Flowers made some really lovely bouquets and centerpieces. The couple included some great personal touches, like beer from the bride’s hometown (Victory brewing), little robot cake toppers, and handmade garlands through-out the reception pavillion. Even their invites and guestbook were a nod to the venue, the John James Audubon Center. Thanks Lauren and Jonah for having us be a part of your day!
