Congratulations to Kelsi and Sam! Their wedding day was not only beautiful, but also meaningful in so many ways. The location itself was a personal touch that added meaning. Their ceremony took place in the garden at the Reading Public Museum where Sam’s grandparents got engaged! And they tied ribbons to trees along the way that were dedicated to family members and friends. A table at their reception was filled with photos of loved ones that were missed on that day, and the bride wore a pearl on her necklace that kept the memory of her father close to her heart.
The ceremony was in the garden at the RPM and their reception was under the tent their. The weather could not have been more lovely. We are so happy for them!

Holley + Steve! These two are meant to be. We had so much fun working with them and the whole crew at their wedding. Don’t miss the fun details – her Peacock shoes and other details that included birds throughout the day.
We have to share an incredible story with you from their wedding website. This story takes place in…Building 24, the very venue where they ended up having their reception. But in this story, they were there on the night of their first day. “A woman walked past them and said, “You two make the cutest couple, you should be together forever!” Steve and Holley were taken aback (mostly because both were starting to feel exactly the same way). And Holley responded to the woman by saying, “Would you like to hear something funny? This is our first date!” To which the women replied, “Ah! Well what a funny story you can tell on your wedding day.”
And tell that story they did! This time, at their wedding reception in Building 24, it was not just a stranger who was smiling at them thinking they should be together forever – it was a whole audience of their friends and family agreeing with that thought.

From the venue, to the decor, to the words the minister spoke over them, their love for antiques helped personalize the day. Their kind hearts see value where others don’t always see it. In the months leading up to their wedding, they collected milk glass bottles, antique door knobs and records to add to the decor. The records were displayed alongside a sign (check out the photo) letting guests know to sign the records in lieu of a guest book! We loved all the details they so thoughtfully incorporated into their day, and we can’t get over what an amazing crowd of people their family and friends are! It was a blast celebrating with everyone and cheering on this amazing couple as they begin this new chapter.
Congrats Josh and Rachel! Wishing you many sweet days and smiles as the years go by and your wedding photos turn to antiques 🙂
The weather on this day could not have been more perfect! Caitlin + Michael enjoyed an exquisite outdoor ceremony in the gardens outside of the Reading Public Museum. Their reception took place in the venue’s outdoor tent. Congrats to this amazing couple!
Hannah and Ned’s gorgeous distressed brown wedding album is chock full of amazing images from their wedding day. We love the custom size opening they ordered for their romantic cover image, and we are so glad they added additional spreads so we could feature more of their beautiful day!

Rachel and Alex were married on a perfect fall day. We loved all the little details as a nod to the season, from the bride’s fantastic shoes to the pumpkins used as table markers. Their reception was held in the Brick Gables, a beautiful remodeled barn in the quaint city of Lititz. The day was made more special by a visit to Alex’s grandmother Geraldine. She was unable to attend the ceremony because she was not feeling well, so we stopped to visit her for photos with the newlyweds en route to the reception. What has made those moments bittersweet for us all was the news that Geraldine passed just a few days after the wedding. We are honored to have been present with her that day and this post is dedicated in her memory and the beautiful heritage she has passed on to her grandson and his new bride.
Congratulations Rachel & Alex! We wish you many blessed years together.

I cannot say enough about how grateful I am that our paths collided! When this couple came in for their wedding consultation, it was the first time we met. As soon as they walked in the door I could see their love for kids. Tabbi bent down to talk to my kids at eye level on our way into the studio. In our conversation that evening, she had a joy when talking about the children in their lives and the hope for children in their future. Little did she know that I was looking for a nanny…
She came in as a bride to book her wedding photography, and ended up becoming my family’s nanny and friend. Tabbi is amazing! She is loyal, hard working and has a heart full of kindness. My kids are as thrilled to have her in our lives as I am – and we were all so excited to share in Tabbi and Ricky’s wedding day!
If you have been in our studio – you may recognize it in the background of some of the photos. Tabbi and her bridesmaids used the studio dressing room for their final touches. It was so much fun to have them here! The guys joined us here for some photos outdoors on our property before heading out.
The day before their wedding marked 10 years that Tabbi and Ricky have been together. Their devotion to one another started back in junior high! The day of their wedding was full of crisp air and fall beauty. They chose fall colors and sunflowers to accent their day.
Tabbi and Ricky not only invited kids to their wedding, but also made sure they had fun with coloring supplies during dinner and glow sticks on the dance floor.
Congrats Tabbi, Ricky & Family – and here’s to hoping for many babies in your future 🙂 If you are blessed with children, they will certainly be blessed to have you as their parents!

Congrats to Angie & Josh! Their wedding took us out to the rolling hills of rural Guernsey County, Ohio. There, joined by guests from Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, they pledged their love in a beautiful, country themed wedding. The love of friends and family was evident everywhere, from the lovely flowers arranged by a cousin, to the delicious cheesecakes prepared by mothers and aunts. More than just one or two short toasts, loved ones came up throughout the reception to speak and honor the newlyweds with good wishes, prayers, and humor. In a touching memorial to the groom’s family, they drove away from their reception in a car once owned by Josh’s late uncle, after whom he is named.

Elena and Pete’s wedding was our first opportunity to photograph a Greek Orthodox wedding and what a joy it was! The event was attended by hundreds of guests, with many traveling from Greece to see them wed. Their ceremony was full of meaningful traditions, the most beautiful being the Stefana, or crowning ceremony in which the priest places a pair of ornate crowns over the head of the bride and groom, symbolizing the nobility and honor of marriage, and their new roles together as king and queen of their household. Pete and Elena’s great love for each other was so evident throughout their day, from the touching moments of their first glance together to their first dance. After dinner, they led their guests in traditional Greek circle dancing that lasted late into the night. Keep an eye out for images with dollar bills strewn about the dance floor, another tradition by which guests and family contribute towards paying the live band. It was a magical day for a beautiful couple.
Congratulations, Elena & Pete, and best wishes for a long and beautiful life together!

Congratulations to Nicki + Tom…and Romeo (their puppy) 🙂 The sun shone overhead for their beautiful August wedding. Guests enjoyed the gorgeous grounds of the Battlefield Bed and Breakfast in Gettysburg, PA for the ceremony and reception. The barn on the property hosted their blue and yellow themed reception full of sunflowers and hours of dancing. Some favorite moments – Nicki and Tom’s exchange of letters (without seeing each other) ahead of the ceremony, Romeo’s focused attention on “mom and dad” while they said their vows, and the end of the night exit through a tunnel of glow sticks.
All the best to you two as you begin your new life together!

This summer wedding – complete with bright colors and sunflowers – was full of country chic details. We loved the bride’s boots, her flower crown and the groom’s succulent boutonniere. The guests sat on benches made of hay bales and planks of wood – the archway was full of organic curves – and the reception was in a retired horse barn. The bridal party toasted to the couple with engraved mason jars, and they cut the cake with a pocket knife.
