Lancaster City Engagement Session – Viviana & Donnie

post by nat

We met with Viviana on Skype a few months ago. She told us all about Donnie, their upcoming wedding and her excitement to marry this man. We chatted about doing an engagement session with them and planned a time when they would be in town. The Friday of their session they flew in from California, Vivi had her hair done at Plum Salon and Spa and we met up with them that evening for their downtown engagement session. It was so great to meet them in person! We wandered around downtown, showed them some of our favorite places and ended the evening with a drink at Pour :) Vivi and Donnie, we are so looking forward to your wedding day!

If you’ve walked through Lancaster the last couple of years, you will have noticed all of the pianos around for people to play and enjoy. We used the one by Central Market to show off Vivi’s ring.

Timber Point Golf Club Wedding – Katie & Kyle

post by nat

Katie & Kyle first met us at another wedding four years ago. When they got engaged they contacted us to see if we’d be willing to travel for their wedding. The answer of course was YES! Matt & I were happy to make the trip to Long Island NY for their wedding.  Katie and Kyle are a very sweet couple, with contagious smiles and genuine joy. We started at the hotel where they were getting ready and as we walked up and down the stairs from the girls to the guys we knew the day would be lovely! It was surprisingly cool that day, not at all what was expected of their August wedding, but quite welcome as we walked around for pictures. Here is Katie & Kyle’s beautiful day :)

Kyle’s details.

Katie & all of the girls wore flats, and as much as I love heels, these flats were not only pretty they saved the day with all of the walking we ended up doing!

Katie got her girls pearls to match their dresses, and cute coral flats.

Cork Factory Hotel Wedding – Leslie & Matt

post by nat

Leslie and Matt chose the Cork Factory Hotel for their special day. About a month before their wedding we sat on the deck at Annie Bailey’s and chatted about their plans and vision for the day. They said the day would be filled with love and emotion and they were right! We met up with Leslie just as she was finishing up with her hair and makeup. She greeted us with her beautiful smile and we knew the day would be wonderful!

Plum Salon & Spa putting on the finishing touches.
