It’s PBJ Time- Julie & Peter’s Classy Downtown Wedding!

Ah… a Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich.. seriously who didn’t grow up on these?  It was the perfect pairing of sweet jam with salty peanut butter. baughman_0025_mmp Cut diagonally on white bread, with cheese puffs… OMG I’m salivating!  Couples have been finding cute acronyms and sayings to sum up their wedding theme for years, but no one has met the ultimate PBJ couple like we have!

Peter and Julie contacted us from California for their super classy downtown Harrisburg wedding, with visions of elegance matched with good old fashion fun!  Through the planning process, Julie emailed often with new ideas and details that were being planned.. basically teasers up to their wedding day!  I was blown away when walking into her Crowne Plaza Hotel suite as she had all of her details laid out perfectly to be photographed.  baughman_0313_mmpFrom the invitations, to rings, to her lucky six-pence.. it was all there!  My favorite detail was her drool-worthy shoes from Pedro Garcia that complimented her gown beautifully!

Post first look, Peter, Julie and their small bridal party got creative with us around the state capitol complex.  One of my favorite creatives captured is a recreation pose from a pick up they pulled off on their engagement session!  Their ceremony concluded to a line of silver streamers and a brief carriage ride to their reception at the Harrisburg Civic Club.  As were her getting ready details, Julie planned every last touch of class to the tiniest detail including PBJ chocolates from Trader Joes, Beautiful white floral arrangements, and multiple versions of Mad Lib cards for guests to fill out and share with the couple.  Julie and Peter even planned a live local band, Cruise Control, for some top class entertainment!  The day was simply magical and will go down as one of those weddings we could photograph over and over again!  baughman_0150j_mmp

Andrea & George October 19, 2013

We rarely see rain on a wedding day… which for the love of puppies I hope I’m not jinxing myself for 2014.  When we met up with Andrea and George for their engagement session we had one heck of a rain storm to work around, yet captured some fantastic pictures!  Roll around to wedding day… and it’s spotty rain!  NOOOOOOOO!!  Thankfully George and Andrea are two of the sweetest, most laid back people we had the pleasure of working with this year so a little drizzle didn’t dampen any spirits!

After their magical Catholic wedding, the couple celebrated at the Harrisburg Civic Club off of Front Street in Harrisburg.  The Club boasts rich, dark wood decor with large windows that overlook the Susquehanna River.  One of the cutest moments was watching Andrea get her dancing shoes on for a traditional Indian dance, which filled the dance floor with many guests who may not have known the steps but had a blast figuring them out.  Wishing you both the very best on your marriage!
