A Romantic, Autumn, York Pennsylvania Wedding | Kelly + Casey

This past Saturday was such a blast! Kelly and Casey gave me the honor of capturing their amazing, family-centered wedding day and I had the best time working with these two! Our morning started at a family friend’s private home which, thanks to their hospitality, gave us such a beautiful background for Kelly and Casey’s portraits.

It was a very relaxed, laid back day filled with an abundance of laughter and one precious pup… Lady. You’ll see Kelly and Casey’s sweet dog made a few appearances including hanging around for their first look. My heart melted over and over again each time Lady tried to jump up to give her mama a kiss. Can we all agree that dogs and weddings are the perfect match!?

This was a BIG wedding. More than 210 people joined them for their special day and what do a couple hundred people need during a wedding day…? The perfect band to dance to! Central City Orchestra brought down the house with live music during their reception and I’m pretty sure all of Kelly and Casey’s friends and family were having the times of their lives.

These two newlyweds have recently taken trips, bought a home together and now get to settle into their new lives as Mr. and Mrs. - the sweetest ending to the best day and the best beginning to the sweetest marriage. Congratulations, Kelly and Casey!

Enjoy some of my favorites from their York, PA wedding day!

The Bond Cozy Industrial Winter Wedding | Zaenna + Brendan

New year, new blog post! I’m so excited for Zaenna and Brendan’s beautiful wedding to be hitting the blog. My 2018 wedding season ended with these two belly-laughing lovebirds at one of my favorite industrial glam wedding venues, The Bond.

Zaenna and Brendan love to laugh and they love to dance so needless to say, their wedding was one big party. Their vendors were incredible and it was so amazing to tie up the year in a pretty little bow with some of the most talented people in the industry. I was feeling so blessed! The cozy, winter-inspired design was filled with the most beautiful greenery and made their reception space feel both welcoming and high-end. I was head over heels with the soft winter touches and all of the candles in their reception space!

As high school sweethearts, Z+B have been taking on the world together for many years. Their families are friends and trust me when I say, they are surrounded by so much love and support. Brendan just graduated from Penn State a few weeks ago and now they’re jumping right into buying a house. YES. All in the midst of getting married.

Congratulations Zaenna and Brendan! Enjoy some of my favorites from their stunning winter wedding!
