Kate + Trevor | The Willis House Wedding

Another wedding at the Willis House, yes please! This tropical paradise wedding was inspired by a previous urban outfitters wedding I shot here a couple years ago and I’m not mad about it. Even though this wedding has influences of Shan and Shawn’s wedding it still screamed Kate and Trevor. The palm leaves bouquet created by Forever In Bloom were really inspiring and Kate’s dress, can we all just take a moment of silence to think about how gorgeous it is?!… Amen.

So aside from the great family that runs this beautiful venue and the fact that you feel like your in Bali, I’d love to hear what you think about this wedding, or even what your favorite detail is. And don’t you all say her dress. ;)

Tawney + Christian | Historic Shady Lane

Historic Shady Lane is and will always be one of my favorite places to photograph. The grounds are always changing with the seasons, the venue is constantly making beautiful updates, and the staff is by far the funnest and most attentive. Tawney and Christian picked a good one!

I experienced so many great moments at this wedding, some hilarious, some sweet, even created some inside jokes with a few bridal party members, #commonsense, but nothing beats that experience I had with the couple and their guests. I seriously have amazing clients. I never leave a wedding not feeling like I am a member of the family, or at least an extended part of the wedding party. Thank you Tawney and Christian for welcoming me in on the most important part of your day. Here are some of my favorites.

Resurrected Styled Shoot

Did you know that I have a vintage booth and sell vintage clothes? 32 Ferns has been my side hustle and retail therapy for some time now. You can find my booth at Redeux Vintage in downtown York, PA. In my hunt to find vintage charm I came across one of these dresses, which inspired this entire shoot. Clothing, accessories and household items can be a great resource for challenging your creativity, but sometimes we need to dig a little deeper than surface items. These dresses may have inspired the shoot, but the feeling and imagery come from a time past. I find something peaceful and beautiful about my past and our history in general. Fact: Weddings were not always based on love, but based on commodity. All women needed was someone to care and provide for their families, love was all but secondary.

Maridalia + Steven | the Green Building Wedding, Brooklyn NY

The wedding of Maridalia (Mari) and Steven was something to be remembered, especially the ceremony! Had I have known what I am about to tell you, I would have viewed the ceremony in a different light. However, it didn’t change the fact that we enjoyed the following:

  • Belting out KC & JoJo - All My Life during bridal party photos

  • Watching a standing ovation and dance party during the grooms entrance into the ceremony

  • Tediously took photos in the rain

  • Witnessed the longest dancing train during a reception

Every wedding is unique and offers something that’s different from the next, whether it’s what the guests bring to the table, the outfits, the family traditions, the music, experiences, or simply the feeling. Mari and Steven kept their details simple, and I now know why. Their family and friends brought an experience to their wedding at The Green Building to level that would have outshined any crazy centerpiece, or styled lounge—it’s was so uniquely them and certainly a wedding I wont forget.

Maridalia and Steven were able to share their very first kiss for their wedding day.
