Rainy Pleasant View B&B Wedding- Amber & Ed

It’s been a May of rain. Every wedding weekend has had some form of precipitation this year so in short.. we’ve been soggy. Thankfully our couples have embraced mother nature while having fun for some creative images.

This was our first visit to the quaint and serene Pleasant View B&B, located just outside of New Cumberland.  Nancy the Innkeeper was a doll and so welcoming to use areas inside the B&B due to the rain which was so appreciated!  Amber and Ed chose to hold their ceremony inside the barn with their intimate reception following at the newly renovated Stable venue.  Mad props to these two for keeping huge smiles on their faces and laughing constantly through out the day.

Anniversary Shout Out- Tierney & Ryan

Sweet and simple.  Wedding and budgets can so quickly get out of hand (as we’ve seen when we were married back in 2008).  I’m not entirely sure but I think the sweet, simple weddings are making a comeback… or at least I hope. If they’re anything like Ryan and Tierney’s (doesn’t she have the best name) wedding day, sign us up!  Fort hunter was the perfect backdrop for their beautiful ceremony with reception following at a church fellowship hall.  Congratulations and happy wishes on your one year celebrations Tierney & Ryan <3!

Anniversary Shout Out- Logan & Elizabeth

Inside secret.. Penn State couples might be my favorite, followed close behind Pitt couples, to photograph.  I’m pretty sure all PSU couples have had the most amazing, kick ass parties to celebrate their nuptials!  Logan and Elizabeth definitely had one heck of an amazing day!  I still can’t think of the term “Nuts to butts” without picturing Logan and his groomsmen posing for bridal portraits 😉 Congratulations you two on your one year anniversary!

Anniversary Shout Out- Julie & AJ

About this time last year we were about to kick off one of the best receptions of the year with Julie and AJ at Historic Acres of Hershey.  These two (and their gorgeous pups) were beyond amazing to photograph!  Wishing you both an amazing happy first anniversary!

Anniversary Shout Out- Samantha & Michael

We love, love, LOVE couples who wear their emotions and personalities on their sleeve.  Samantha and Michael definitely brought their wedding A-games last year for their Inn at Leola Village wedding. Such a truly remarkable day for quite the amazing couple. Wishing lots of anniversary love to these two as I continue to reminisce of this chilly, but gorgeous wedding day!

Reception Spin the Bottle at Wind in the Willows

Jennifer and Garrett hosted a very classy DIY vintage style wedding with hints of lace and burlap, glowing Japanese lanterns, and fill-your-own Mason jar favors for guests.

The couple married in a small family church which boasts huge windows and lots of natural light! Down the aisle, the couple hung natural wooden plaques with snippets burned in from 1 Corinthians, one of which included their last name- “Love Bears All Things”.

Rather than a traditional exit, the couple opted for homemade ribbon streamers which made another appearance later in the evening on the dance floor. Although cutting a small cake, guests were treated to ice cream sundaes following the delicious BBQ feast and some wicked awesome spin the bottle dancing!

Early Spring Riverdale Manor Wedding- Jocelyn & Brandon

Beauty meets Tech Geek. Tech Geek swoons Beauty. The two marry and have one kick ass party to celebrate!

Jocelyn and Brandon, who met in college, exchanged heartfelt, yet comical vows, at the gorgeous Riverdale Manor, located in Lancaster PA. The couple kicked off their evening with the BEST, best man toast offering pieces of Brandon’s past that will no longer carry over to married life- his favorite girly poster, Skyrim, Halo 4 and his collection of crazy hats. The dance floor was stocked all evening with the couples sorority sisters and frat brothers, to which Jocelyn’s grandmother also broke out a few moves!

All in all a very fun way to kick off the busy 2015 wedding season!  Joy and Love to the newlyweds!

Planes, Trains, and Weeping Willows- Jessica & Mike’s Rustic Chic Wedding

10269290_10152515883392259_2793735216327793885_oAfter laughing with and getting to know Jessica and Mike during their engagement session a few months ago, we knew their wedding day was going to be nothing short of amazing.  From the planned details of their reception decor to the gorgeous blue satin Badgley Mischka shoes10259113_10152515882977259_2093514013940765107_o Jess chose, their wedding was simply elegant with hints of rustic chic that tied everything together at their Wind in the Willows location fantastically!  Jessica, who is in my opinion a splitting image of Rachel Ray meets Jasmine Star, has one of the best and sweetest personalities which was only heightened during their wedding day, especially during their first look when Mike couldn’t help but gush over his gorgeous bride!

Some of our favorite moments, aside from squishing in the recently rained upon fields, were hitting up some must have areas for their posed images which included the plane 10273208_10152515882347259_3968683354778361095_o (mostly for her dad who is an avid lover of aircraft) and for us photographers.. the willows.  I couldn’t help but choose one of their stunning images for a metal canvas wall art for our new office!  I also have to give mad props to Mike Miller of Mixed Up Productions, one of our preferred DJ friends, who kept the dance floor packed all night.  Jessica and Mikes guests literally were up out of there seats and kicking off shoes during “dinner music” hour!

A Spring Country Club Wedding- Kara & Jake

Spring and Fall are two of my favorite seasons for outdoor weddings.casher_0004j_mmp  The only challenge of course is the chance of precipitation which thankfully was a very minimal worry for Kara and Jake’s wedding day, as the rain stopped and sun returned within a half hour of their walk down the aisle.  Kara and Jake chose Colonial Country Club in Linglestown for their beautiful, heartfelt ceremony, stating vows in front of about 100 of their closest friends and family.  Post ceremony we took full advantage of the gorgeous blooming trees and well manicured grounds of the country club.  Kara and Jake celebrated with Klock Entertainment and even had their little man, Brayden, rocking out his excellent dance moves all night!  Casher_0656_MMPMy favorite moment from their wedding day was working with the couple and their super fun bridal party while recreating an image Kara dreamed for her wedding portfolio- everyone’s personality shined and I can see why the couple loves each of the folks invited into their bridal party!  Congratulations Kara and Jake and we wish you both the very best on your marriage!

Homebrewed Love- A Brief Wedding Encounter

Guest Written by Lead Photographer Christin Lopez.couey_004_cl_mmp

It’s interesting hearing how our couples meet and what sort of bond made a simple first date into one hell of a memorable one!  Jeremiah and Jeralynn fall into the category of couples with very interesting first date stories, which for these two, resulted in a pit stop at Urgent Care due to some seriously bad tuna.  The couple, who are avid homebrewers.. seriously.. where’s the beer.. currently reside in Brooklyn, NY, though Jeralynn pegs Lancaster, PA as her hometown.  Jeralynn and Jeremiah chose to have their brief, yet classy wedding celebration at Landis Valley Museum in the historic firehouse, where touches of vintage elements and cool lanterns added to the ambiance.  couey_173_whbwOne of the coolest details was a tie between Jeralynn’s stunning high-low shortened dress and the cork place holders with old family photos!  Instead of traditional bland and boring wedding food, the foodie couple chose a relaxing feast of delicious BBQ and homemade pie (baked by Jeremiah himself for the couples pie.. store-bought for the guests) rather than cake.  couey_141_whWhat home brewer wedding would be complete unless some samplings of Jeremiah and Jeralynn’s were available for tasting, sealed with a heart bottle cap of course?!  I gotta say my favorite moment from their day was seeing these two just be themselves, couey_401_whbwkick back and just have a blast with being photographed and being married to one another!  Congratulations you two and warmest wishes of many years of married bliss and happiness!
