Liz and Dan. Ash Mill Farm Holicong, PA. Special thanks to my second shooter, Monika Broz.
“We like woods, cornfields, and abandoned buildings,” they said to me. I found all of these spots close proximity to each other and it was a match made in heaven. I had such a great time photographing Melissa and J.C. I really felt like we connected in style and understanding of what types of photos they like. I’m so excited for their wedding next year!
Katie and Michael’s wedding was at this amazing private farm in New Hope, complete with chickens, a goat, a donkey, and several dogs. The farm and indoor spaces had so much character to them, I could definitely feel the warmth and spirit of the people who live there. The day could not have been more perfect. Katie and Michael, with their little daughter Nev, tied their family together with all of their loved ones surrounding them. Much of the set up was performed by Michael himself. It was really amazing to see the space transformed for the wedding day.
Thanks Katie and Michael for having me there to photograph your memorable wedding day! Thanks also to Tricia, one of Love Me Do’s newest associate photographers for second shooting with me.
Lisa and Travis were married at Ash Mill Farm about a month ago, and I must say, it is one of my favorite places to photograph a wedding in! The house and the grounds are so quaint and beautiful, perfect for an outdoor casual wedding, equipped with a dog, sheep and Billiejean, the goat! My friend and fellow photographer, Jess Roberts, second shot for me. Lisa is an incredible artist and vintage shop owner. Her style really shown through in the wedding. The theme of this wedding was definitely “handmade” and “vintage.”
Lisa wore an amazing vintage 1930s embroidered organdy gown with matching jacket that she found on ebay. The lace bow in her hair was another ebay find. Flowers were assembled by Wall Flowers, and the reception was catered by Linda Jacobs of Soup To Nuts LLC. Nishat Akhtar, friend of the bride, designed all of the paper goods — invitation, rsvp, program, placecards, table numbers, thank you cards. the whole shebang!
Lisa is a d.i.y. fanatic. She made all of the accessories for the wedding party — her necklace, her mom & mother-in-law’s brooches, and both sister-in-laws’ necklaces. Her mother-in-law & sister-in-law quilted the photobooth backdrop. The tablecloths, napkins, milk glass vases, & crates were all collected from yard sales, ebay, and etsy, as well as from Unique’s in Cincinnati, Ohio. Pat, the owner, kept a watchful eye out for linens and sweetly collected (and painstakingly laundered & pressed) them for her.
A little quote from the bride herself, “the whole day really was so special to us. my prevailing memory of the day is just being so overjoyed that we got to have all of our favorite people in the whole world in one place all at the same time. eating, drinking, talking & dancing with them… it was all just surreal & better than i ever could have imagined.“
