During my busiest months, I often fall behind in blogging so that I can dedicate as much time as possible to making sure my amazing clients get their images delivered quickly. Jess and Sean's incredible wedding is one that I haven't blogged yet - but that's all changing now!
The first time I met Jess and Sean in person was when we shot their engagement portraits at Longwood Gardens. (You can see those pictures by clicking here.) They have so much love for each other, are incredibly kind and full of joy, and are so much fun to be around. We hit it off right away, and I knew that their wedding was going to be one of my favorites to photograph! When their wedding day rolled around last fall, my prediction was accurate - I had a blast! Their ceremony and reception took place at White Chimneys, located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Their DIY decor was a combination of romantic, casual, and rustic. Their personalized vows and rope braiding ceremony reflected not only the strong love they have for each other, but also their strong faith. I found myself giggling at the adorable "ring bears" that made their presence, and then I broke down in tears when I witnessed Sean's reaction as Jess walked down the aisle toward him with her dad. (Give yourself a high five if you got that How I Met Your Mother reference!)
The fun continued throughout the portraits and the reception, too! There was no shortage of toasts, laughter, or dancing... and a few special guests made their appearance on the dance floor as well!
Jess and Sean, thank you so much for asking me to capture your Day #1 as husband and wife. You both deserve this Happily Ever After, and I'm honored that I was able to celebrate with you. I hope you enjoy this selection of photos from their day.
