French Creek Golf Club Wedding – Elizabeth & Steve

post by nat

Elizabeth and Steve chose the most stunning fall day to say I Do! I mean the whole week before it was calling for rain, and I think we even had a few drops threaten us until after the ceremony. We arrived at Elizabeth’s parents house to a flurry of people getting ready and chasing kids and you could feel the excitement in the air. Once Elizabeth was in her dress I got to ride with her and her parents in the limo over to the church. Steve was nervously waiting for his bride, but I’m pretty sure as soon as he saw her walking towards him down that aisle all nerves were a distant memory.

After they officially became husband and wife the sun came out and cast a perfect glow on them throughout their entire portrait session! French Creek looked amazing as always, and we had the most beautiful sky as a backdrop for these two. All too soon it was time for Elizabeth to be bustled and them to be announced into their reception. The night was filled with love and laughter and dancing and joy. Elizabeth and Steve, it was perfect!

Invitations, shoes and jewelry.

Courtney and Tom had a lovely wedding day at the Cork Factory Hotel. We have so enjoyed getting to know these two and knew their day would be a lot of fun! It was a gorgeous day, that began at Plum Salon & Spa. Courtney picked her three best girls to be a part of her day and it was a blast getting to know all of them. We laughed a lot that day! We even ran into some superhero’s along the way :) We beat the rain and had a blast all day long. Here is there beautiful wedding.

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!
