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!

Wrightsville Riverside Engagement Session | Zaenna + Brendan


I’m so excited that Zaenna and Brendan are on the blog for you to swoon over this morning! I just love these two! Last week, on a gorgeous, warm evening, I met them along the Susquehanna River near John Wright Restaurant where Brendan proposed. We laughed, I probably make a fool of myself and they danced. Yes. Zaenna and Brendan love to dance. This makes me even more excited for their December wedding!

They are currently really hardworking college students and have been in a relationship for years… essentially growing as adults together. Zaenna is planning to be a teacher and Brendan is studying engineering (at Penn State no less… WE ARE)! I loved hearing about their wedding plans as we strolled along the river. Their winter wedding at The Bond will be stunning and I cannot wait to laugh (and DANCE!!!) along with them as they say “I do”!

Enjoy a few of my favorite shots from Zaenna and Brendan’s engagement session!
