Blooming Boudoir Styled Shoot | Historic Shady Lane

Ever wonder what you could do with backyard florals? Dover, PA's very own Blossom Bliss Florist took your everyday blooms and created a stunning "Eve" styled cover up for this boudoir shoot. I was smitten just gazing over every detail this florist created.  Randi created an native vibe bringing out subtle details in the hair and makeup to compliment the vibe and Historic Shady Lane created the perfect backdrop giving this entire shoot that modern day Adam and Eve vibe we were looking for. If your short time, please be sure to at least check out the drone footage I caught at the end! 

Peace and love.

Sophia + Edwin | Philadelphia Engagement Photography

This engagement session had us UBERing all over Philly, but it was totally worth every shot and of course I loved the extra time connecting with Sophie & Edwin between locations. They are both incredibly ambitious, smart, caring and just overall a really great couple. I love that they had no idea where they would be living next. There job applications were literally defining the next phase of their lives together, that and of course the nuptials!

Enjoy this Philly engagement session, taken along boathouse row, the Philadelphia Art Museum, and City Hall! 

Katlyn + Kyle | Lodge at Liberty Forge Wedding

For those that love weddings with a warm sunset, rich reds, and a romantic vibe, this wedding is all that and a strawberry on top! The wedding venue, located in York, PA, the Lodge at Liberty Forge, creates a rich and welcoming atmosphere, letting in so much of that natural light, and you can't help but fall in love with its lightly wooded golf course, creating the perfect backdrop. 

Katlyn and Kyle made me smile all day. Their little romantic gestures mirrored their wedding style and their sweet and soft personalities were a true reflection of the tempting cupcakes made by Just Cupcakes and the soft florals crafted by Everyone Deserves Flowers—even the dresses were a perfect fit for the couple.

Abby + Anthony | Historic Shady Lane Wedding

Abby and Anthony nailed the garden-meets-whimsical-meets-elegant theme! If your looking for a beautiful and fun wedding thats wrapped in golds, whites, and not too many flowers, this wedding story is for you.  Abby spills the details on what made her wedding one of the most memorable days of her life, and advise for those anticipating their own wedding day.  

How did you meet, and most important, how did he propose? 
Anthony and I met through friends when Anthony was home during leave from the army. Usually around our area we would go on walks through certain parks and Anthony took me on a walk through the park one day and proposed there!

Personalized wedding details, tell us about em'! 
We had little signs of both of us throughout the day like the panda on top of the cake that I’ve been obsessed with for a while. Anthony took me to see the pandas in a zoo on one of our first dates. Also, instead of doing favors, we donated to charities that meant a lot to both of us!

What was your favorite part of the wedding day?
The favorite part of our day was definitely hearing each other‘s vows and just enjoying each other‘s company throughout the whole reception. We also had dragonflies with all of the bridesmaids which symbolizes my nanny. And we also had pictures of our grandparents in the entranceway from their wedding.

Do you have any wedding planning or marriage advice that you’d like to share with other couples planning their day?
Your wedding day will go really fast so enjoy every moment with each other and have fun! There's going to be a lot of stressors, but the most important part of that day is that you get married!

Asking yourself who did all that amazing signage? Sorry wedding planners, her aunt did all the calligraphy for the mirrors, program, seating chart, desert signage, and bar signage! Go aunty!

Sam + Mark | Camp Cann-Edi-On Woodland Wedding

Sam and many great things to say about them, it's easy to begin and difficult to end. They are hands down adorable and you get an immediate sense of love and support. Might sound strange, but they both know what they want and their future seems clear. 

On the wedding day I showed up over an hour early. long story, but it goes fast with so many great details surrounding the camp. This particular camp, Camp Cann-Edi-On, was my first and only choice for my own wedding, so I fall in love with the idea of photographing here every time. The details were filled with nature, glass wine bottles, and hints of vintage peppered in. A venue like this really does all the work for you.  With some yard games,  an outdoor dance floor, and a keg truck provided by Brewery Products, you really don't need much more to entertain your guests. 

What makes this wedding even more entertaining? The ceremony was on fire! Scroll to see the BEST unity idea for a wedding, and if you make it to the very end, you see a special announcement from the bride and groom!
