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!!

Maria & Mike – The Belle Voir Manor Wedding.

Meet Maria & Mike! We started off the day at Maria’s family home where she and her girls got their hair and makeup done. I love when brides choose to do this because it adds such an intimate element to their story! As she slipped into her beautiful dress, that she embellished herself with flowers and feathers, this adorable rush of excitement surrounded Maria…She was going to marry her man today! This was happening. Their Ceremony was was held at Saint Albert The Great Parish in Huntingdon Valley which has this beautiful glass wall behind the alter. After the Ceremony we headed over to the Reception at Bell Voir Manor which is the lovely sister venue next door to Pen Ryn Mansion. If the mashed potato bar wasn’t enough to make me fall in love with this wedding, Maria’s family surprised Mike with a Mummers Band. If you’re not from Philly then you’re most likely saying what is a Mummer?! Every year on New Year’s Day, Philly has The Mummers Parade where Philly blocks and entire families compete for best costumes, bands & floats. The entire reception went nuts and everyone was on the dance floor doing their best Mummer’s Strut.

Styled Shoot for Fall Issue of Contemporary Bride Magazine.

A few months ago I teamed up with a few amazing vendors for a Styled Photo Shoot for the fall issue of Contemporary Bride Magazine. This small shoot on a farm on the out skirts of Princeton, NJ was centered around these cute little cake stands from Cake It Up, LLC and we were published on page 116! I was lucky to get Daniella Tamasi as my Bride for the day and the Wonderful Dani Jaye Makeup Artistry for the three separate looks we planned out. In between each setup I decided to take the opportunity to shoot some beauty portraits and here are some of my favorites from the day.

Nicole & Tim – The Wedding.

Meet Nicole & Tim! I met Nicole through one of my 2011 Brides and it felt like we had been friends for years, even though we only just met. When I drove up to her family home where she was getting ready and saw the horses in the back yard I knew this was going to be a good day. I was early and she hadn’t arrived yet, so I went to work on her details, shooting her beautiful dress hanging on her parents bedpost. When she walked in she was glowing and you could just tell she couldn’t wait to be Tim’s wife! I recently asked Nicole when was the moment she knew Tim was the one she was going to marry. They first met at her sister’s house when she came over to help plan for the NYE party the next day. Cut to the end of that night when she & Tim were the only two left awake playing cards and getting to know each other. My favorite part of their story though was their second time meeting which was at the NYE party. Nicole had made an appearance, dressed to make mouths water and catch Tim’s eye (little did she know she was already running through Tim’s brain). Later that night she called to wish her parents Happy New Year and Tim got on the phone! ‘He said he wanted to see me the day after New Year’s before I went back to school. I agreed and in a drunken state blurted I wish you were here, I miss you. hahah. They say love at first sight and Tim and I believe it!’ Cute right?!
They were married in Ashton, PA at Church of Saint Joseph, which was all kinds of beautiful. It’s this round church with a gorgeous skylight making every seat in the house a great seat to see this couple say ‘I Do’. After the ceremony we headed over to the reception spot at The Concordville inn in Concordville, pa to take some pictures and celebrate the day.

Jess & Jesse – The Wedding.

Meet Jess & Jesse. My amazing DC couple! They were married at the Pearl S. Buck Estate in Perkasie, PA and we were lucky enough to get just the right amount of sun on this overcast day for a sweet, outside summer wedding. Two things I loved…The look on Jess’ Parent’s faces during the first dance and Jesse’s famous version of The Robot.

Tracy & Nicole – The Wedding.

Meet Tracy & Nicole. AKA Fancy & Goose 🙂 I had the honor of shooting this lovely and amazing wedding in Raleigh, NC just a few short months ago. We started off shooting portraits in E.B. Bain Waterworks, which is this abandoned water treatment plant a few miles from downtown. Tracy’s company owned it so we had free reign to go where we wanted and I tell you right now, I could have shot there all day long if it weren’t for the heat. The wedding and reception were both held in downtown Raleigh at The Stockroom at 230. I loved this venue. It just fit perfectly with the couple, who had their hands in every detail of this wedding. From the Giant Balloons to the delicious Southern BBQ buffet, they made it all happen. Nicole for instance, made the cake which was a multi-tiered banana pudding with their initials monogrammed on top in Vanilla Wafers. My favorite line from the day was delivered by none other than Jarvis Slacks, a close friend who officiated the ceremony. After a very intimate ceremony he ended by saying ‘by the power vested in me…by my friends, I now pronounce you Married!’ I loved it, I love them, I love everything about this wedding.
