The Bond Cozy Industrial Winter Wedding | Zaenna + Brendan

SSP-BTS-2018_0103.jpg

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!

Pine Ridge Farm Romantic Blush Wedding | Morgan + Brittian

Pine-Ridge-Farm-Wedding_0001.jpg

I just love Morgan and Brit. I’ve been working with them for two years (officially!) to create their dream day. More than any other bride I’ve ever worked with, Morgan truly embraced my suggestions and sought out my opinions. Everything from her hair style to the decor to the break of the hem in Brit’s pants… seriously. She wanted everything to be picture perfect.

I loved shooting for the first time at Pine Ridge Farm and I hope to be back again soon! Kristin and Dan were so gracious and sweet. They were a complete joy to work with!

If you’re going to have a DIY wedding, this is the way to do it. This event was crafted almost solely by Morgan’s family, her and Brit’s do-it-yourself talents and a lot of heart. Her dad cooked a Thanksgiving-style feast for all of their guests. Her mom, was a total floral goddess and created the bouquets, boutonnières, centerpieces and almost all of the decor. They even handcrafted the wooden boxes that held their reception centerpieces. Truly this was a labor love. Morgan and Brit took the time to express their gratitude throughout the day.

After their special ceremony, Sparkx Entertainment kept everyone dancing to lots of early 2000’s jams (my fav). I absolutely loved capturing Morgan and Brittian’s sweet wedding day. Enjoy some of my favorites!
