On a warm September day, Rachel & Ryan were married at the breathtaking Crossing Vineyards and Winery in Pennsylvania. The happy couple wanted their Fall wedding to be romantic, fun and inviting for their family and friends to enjoy. No detail was left to chance as their reception was carefully decorated with layers of blush pink, shades of gold and glittery chevron sequins. Rachel wore a pale blush pink lace wedding dress from Jim Hjelm and Ryan looked handsome in his custom tailored navy tuxedo. He even had their initials sewn inside of the jacket, next to his heart, for safe keeping. With a mix of flowers from Rachel's ombre wedding bouquet, an ombre petal aisle runner, baby's breath centerpieces and bouquets of pink astilbes for the bridesmaids, the flowers were unbelievably gorgeous. Honestly, I didn't even know pink astilbe existed! As the couple read their vows, Rachel could not hold back her emotion and excitement to become Ryan's wife. I'm so honored I was able to join Lindsay Madden capture this lovely couples amazing wedding day. Congratulations Rachel & Ryan!

The first snowstorm of the new year created the perfect covering of white for Christina and Alex's winter wedding at the Cork Factory Hotel in Lancaster, PA. The happy couple are both naval officers and met working on the same ship. They were friends first but soon it became clear that they were meant to be more. After one of the most difficult hiking trails they climbed together, Alex knew that Christina was the one. They wanted their wedding to be a small intimate celebration and the warm inviting Cork Factory Hotel was exactly what they were looking for. While we waiting for Christina to arrive to their first look, I had a wonderful conversation with Alex all about love, life and timing. For them, the timing was just right. I'm so honored I was able to join Caroline Frost and help her capture their special day. One of reasons I love being a wedding photographer is being able to meet so many wonderful couples and tell their love story. Congratulations Christina & Alex!
