Kristin & Michael – The Pearl S. Buck Estate Wedding Teaser!

Check out this beautiful teaser from Kristin & Michael’s wedding Saturday at Pearl S. Buck Estate in Bucks County. This was just after the ice cream cake cutting when we took a walk into the prairie behind the estate. I took one look at those flowers and turned to Kristin and asked if she wanted to get in them for a picture and she jumped in before I could finish my question! Love you two! Have a blast on your honeymoon!!

Heather – The Wedding Assistant!

Meet Heather! Photographer assistant extraordinaire. She’s my right hand lady and part of the Russ Hickman Photography team! She’s awesome and chances when you hire me you’ll meet her. She gets me the lenses I need, finds those family members that went to the bar for a drink during family formals and helps me make those epic night shots happen! She helps fluff your dress when you can’t reach it, pin on your groomsman’s flowers when they can’t figure it out, most likely she’ll cry at your ceremony and man can she dance at your reception…yeah she’s the cats meow. (she loves cats)

Avi & Brian – The Mansion at Ridley Creek Wedding.

Meet Avi & Brian, again!! I love the pants off of them! This whirlwind Wedding was held at The Mansion at Ridley Creek. Inside and out this is one fantastic venue. For their first look, we met out in this lovely sculptured garden which had these beautiful clipped hedges that framed the moment perfectly. As she walked down this natural hallway to Brian, you could see the emotions building between them both. When he turned around and saw her for the first time, it was like he got the wind taken out of him. He let out this adorable sigh which was quickly followed by some well deserved smoochin. Something I loved about their ceremony was that they had four close people in their lives hold onto the Chuppah. If you’re not familiar with Jewish ceremonies, the Chuppah is the canopy that the couple is married under. Usually this is held up on it’s own but I think their choice to have friends hold it gave it such unique, personal touch. For the reception, they hired The Benderz. This was not your typical wedding band, no. It almost felt like an actual concert. Hands were up in the air, shoes came off and everyone was singing right along with every song they belted out. It was the perfect way to celebrate Avi & Brian’s Wedding. At the end of the night, after the band played a few encores to appease their fans, we ran outside for a sparkler sendoff!

Nicole & Kyle – The Newtown, PA Wedding.

Meet Nicole & Kyle! My beautiful adventurous bride who waded out into a river before her ceremony! We started the day off in Newtown, PA at The Brick Hotel for some beautiful getting ready shots. Then we headed over to Tyler State Park for the First Look. I Love a First Look! Now I know I’ve explained it before but basically it’s where the Bride & Groom see each other for the first time. A more intimate way to share the moment together instead of in front of everyone you know. Tyler Park is also where the Bride & her entire wedding party got into the river for a portrait. Not many would consider it but Nicole was all for it! The reception was held at Rose Bank Winery which is absolutely beautiful. The vineyard alone is enough to want your wedding there and it could not have been a more perfect fit for Nicole & Kyle’s Wedding!

Kelli & Brian – The Wedding.

Meet Kelli & Brian! Like I mentioned in their teaser, Brian tore his Achilles Tendon just two weeks before the wedding. And even with that craziness he was still there for Kelli and ready for whatever we wanted to get into picture-wise. I went easy on them but seriously, what a trooper! Check out some of my favorites from this Bensalem Township Country Club Wedding.
