A few weeks ago, Kailey and Kyle got married and I was lucky enough to be there to document it all! As soon as I met them at their consultation, I instantly realized how deeply in love they are, and I knew that their wedding day was going to be fabulous. I have been looking forward to this day for almost a year - since way before their amazing engagement session that took place in Berks County at the Wyomissing Park last fall.
Kailey and Kyle's wedding and reception both took place at the Barn at Silverstone, located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. (All of the amazing vendors that worked together to make this day a success are listed at the bottom of this blog post!) Their details and decorations were rustic, romantic, and simply beautiful. Kailey and Kyle decided against having a first look, opting for the more traditional choice of waiting to see each other until Kailey was walking down the aisle. I always love watching the groom's reaction as he sees his bride for the first time, and Kyle's reaction had me in tears. He absolutely glowed when he set his eyes upon Kailey in her wedding dress, as she was escorted down the aisle by her proud father. Their obvious love for each other had many of us in tears that afternoon.
Kyle's brother officiated the wedding ceremony, and immediately after their romantic bubble exit, we gathered around the stunning stone fireplace for family portraits. I noticed that a few guests kept checking their phones and watches, and I quickly discovered the reason why - there was a storm approaching, and we were on borrowed time to finish up our outdoor photographs!
It turned out that luck was on our side that evening, and we finished all of the formal portraits just minutes before the sky opened up and gifted us a lucky wedding day downpour. The rain didn't last long, and we made it back outside for a few more photographs right as the sun was setting. It was a beautiful day all around, and the lucky thunderstorm just made it even more perfect.
Kailey and Kyle, I wish you both a lifetime of happiness together. I can't thank you enough for trusting me to capture your Day #1 for you and your loved ones.
