A Country Wedding at The Farm at Eagles Ridge – Megan & Evan

post by nat

Megan and Evan chose The Farm at Eagles Ridge for their rustic glam wedding and it was the perfect fit for them! Earlier this spring we met up with them in Wilmington DE for their engagement session and they talked a lot of their upcoming day filled with friends, family and fun details. Thankfully we arrived on a beautiful day for their outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour, followed by a super fun party in the air conditioned barn ;) Having one of the biggest wedding parties we have ever worked with their day was full of laughter, emotion and love. We were so thrilled that they chose to have a First Look because there were so many great moments to capture with these two!!

Megan’s Badgley Mischka’s, the pale pink matched her bridesmaids dresses perfectly.

During our pre-wedding meeting with Megan & Evan they asked if we had any recommendations for old truck rentals. They wanted something to add to the feel of the day especially for the pictures and the cocktail hour for their guests to enjoy. As it happens, Matt’s hobby is to fix up old vehicles and he has a group of friends that likes to do the same! Our friend Jonathan was available for their date and was more than happy to bring out his truck for these guys :)

farm-at-eagles-ridge-wedding-pictures-lancaster-photography-me-20

Petals with Style created all of the beautiful florals for their day. I love the contrast in the picture.

Saturday’s wedding at Moonstone Manor for Dana & Mickey was a day full of surprises. We arrived in the morning as the girls and guys were getting ready.

The Farm at Eagles Ridge Wedding – Lauren & James

post by nat

For months we have been looking forward to Lauren & James’ wedding day at The Farm at Eagles Ridge. We first met these two about three years ago at a wedding we did that will go down in history as the hottest wedding we have even shot. We then saw them again at a wedding two years ago that ended with an epic storm (and an epic picture of the couple right before the storm hit). At that wedding James informed Matt that he had the ring and would be proposing to Lauren soon. So, we knew that their wedding day would be an event to look forward to and we were right :)

Lauren and James met at the middle school where they both teach. Lauren is the art teacher, so there were a lot of details throughout the wedding that incorporated her talent. It was so wonderful to show up and know some of the people in their wedding party. The whole day was lovely, everything went off beautifully without a hitch. In fact it went by way too quickly! We are so happy for Lauren and James and a bit sad that this day we’ve been looking forward to is already over. But let’s not get sad because there are so many pretty things to show off from their day!

Lauren got her dress from In White, a Justin Alexander design.

lancaster-wedding-photography-the-farm-at-eagles-ridge-lj-01

Love love love her shoes! Oh so cute and comfortable too ;)

lancaster-wedding-photography-the-farm-at-eagles-ridge-lj-02

Accessories.

lancaster-wedding-photography-the-farm-at-eagles-ridge-lj-03

Lauren’s earring from Sorelli and that glimmer you see in the background? All of her bridesmaids got to choose earrings of their choice form Sorelli as well.

lancaster-wedding-photography-the-farm-at-eagles-ridge-lj-04

Beautiful girls.

lancaster-wedding-photography-the-farm-at-eagles-ridge-lj-05

Her garters.

lancaster-wedding-photography-the-farm-at-eagles-ridge-lj-06

Their wedding bling. Jude from J.A. Sharp custom designed Lauren’s wedding band!

lancaster-wedding-photography-the-farm-at-eagles-ridge-lj-07

All of their pretty stationary.

Reading her letter from James. So sweet.

lancaster-wedding-photography-the-farm-at-eagles-ridge-lj-10

The finishing touches put on by her mom.

lancaster-wedding-photography-the-farm-at-eagles-ridge-lj-14

The girls looked stunning. I think their dresses are perfect and flowy and light for a summer wedding.

lancaster-wedding-photography-the-farm-at-eagles-ridge-lj-15

Hair and makeup that looked amazing all day long by Plum Salon & Spa. Claire and Eden look adorable in their coral dresses and got to carry stuffed ‘Marshalls’ in honor of Lauren & James’ dog who wasn’t their for their special day.

lancaster-wedding-photography-the-farm-at-eagles-ridge-lj-16

All Things Beautiful made the stunning florals. The colors were a perfect contrast to the bridesmaids pale dresses.
