Let me just start with: I am completely obsessed with this wedding. Valentine's Day, the perfect Northern PA winter light, just enough snow on the ground, and can we just take a second to talk about Sam in her mother freaking mink coat?! Sam started off the day with mimosas, hair, and make-up at the perfect RD Blow Dry Bar in Scranton. Their reception was held at Genetti Ballrooms in Hazelton, which had some pretty awesome spots to explore around in for photos. One of my favourite parts of a wedding day is the bride + groom photos after their ceremony. At this point, every couple gets the sweetest most simple bliss that surrounds them... they're finally married. The cake is standing tall, their flowers arrived intact, they've finally said "I Do," and all of the stress that surrounds a wedding day has completely faded away. I just love the energy that exists in those precious few minutes I get to spend with my couples. Add on the romance of a Valentine's wedding... swoon. (;
In case you haven't noticed, I'm the world's worst blogger. Looking back on my last 2015 wedding has me SO excited for all of the awesome couples I have lined up for 2016!
Chris + Bri got married on a freezing bright November Saturday. They had a gorgeous ceremony at the Trinity Lutheran Church, downtown Pottsville, and then they rounded up their closest friends and family for a beautiful intimate post ceremony dinner at Kemfort's Cottage. Chris + Bri braved the freezing cold with me for a couple quick photos- this is what we got... (insert heart eyes here).
I didn’t officially meet Mike and Julia until their wedding day… I know it doesn’t seem like that big of a deal, but I walked into that hotel room feeling like I was walking in on a first blind date. Immediately, you could feel the excited energy radiating off of Julia and her three best friends and buzzing around the hotel room. Julia has the most contagious smile; she grabbed me in a hug, offered me a mimosa, and right away I knew it was going to be an awesome day. Julia and Mike chose the most perfect fall day for their wedding. Seriously, there is nothing better than an autumn wedding in Pennsylvania! The crisp fresh air, the electric colours; it’s like the Christmas of wedding seasons.
Mike and Julia met ski patrolling in Utah; they spend the other half of their year guiding climbs and white water rafting in Washington. Besides being insanely jealous, when we hung up after our first Skype meeting, I knew I had found kindred spirits in these two. They are both so full of life, laughter, and love… the photos say it all.
