I love small weddings.. not just love but LOVE small, intimate weddings. I also adore back yard weddings and definitely love week day weddings. In case you’re still keeping track of the love list, Kellyn and Blake had a red letter wedding day in my book.
Kellyn contacted me about an intimate wedding planned for their Mechanicsburg home on a Thursday in June- jubilee day to be exact which also happened to fall on the same day the two met years ago. Thankfully we were a few blocks from the craziness, so no major traffic issues but you could hear the music in the background a bit.
Along with their 7 guests, Daisy, an amazingly gorgeous rescue Pit was in attendance for the boho inspired wedding vibe. The couple even chose to drive over to their old office… aka where they met.. for some heartfelt images and a coy (see fish pond picture below) party!

One of the perks to our profession is all the great couples we meet and spend the day with. We learn their personalities, their stories, and share many laughs with them leading up to the wedding day and for some beyond. The hardest part of what we do is their wedding day.. not the images- that’s the best part.. but it’s usually the last time we’re with the couple until the wee ones come along later in their lives. I’ll fully admit I think of most clients as friends and try to keep in touch via social media, but knowing we won’t see the couple again for a while makes our drive and passion for perfection that much stronger:)
Megan and Jason are definitely in that friend category as they are two of the sweetest people you’d ever meet. Jason, a pilot by day, and Megan a medical professional, started their love story in the halls of grade school. Their on again off again romance was rekindled years ago and their engagement was a celebration by both families and many friends. During his speech, Jason’s father tearfully shared that he always knew it’d be Megan and the passion between these two definitely was a heartfelt indication. One of our favorite memories from their day was how personalized they planned out their day, from the stunning gown, to the beautifully handwritten letters exchanged, to the seating arrangements via toy airplanes. Our warmest wishes and blessings go out to these two on their long and happy marriage:)

There’s always something about the first wedding of the year. Given we haven’t had much of a break between our last and first, you do have that anticipation of something great in celebrating the wedding of two loving individuals. Jessica and Jeff’s wedding was gorgeous, decked out in beautiful pine trimmings, candles, and some of the best musicians in the area.
We were blown away by Jessica’s voice as she sang to her new groom prior to their first dance as husband and wife! Also a true hero of the day was the Best Man, Jeff’s brother, who had an emergency appendectomy just hours before the wedding and was still a trooper through the whole event! Congratulations to the wonderful couple and we wish you both a lifetime of happiness together!
