Heritage Hills Golf Resort Celestial Inspired Wedding | Chloe + Josh

heritage-hills-wedding_0088.jpg

Chloe and Josh are the nicest couple and it was such an honor to photograph their wedding! I’ve known Chloe and her family since I was a little girl; we went to church together for many years. To see her marry the love of her life in that church was just so sweet. Plus… Caity, my second shooter, and I both went to Penn State around the same time as Chloe and Josh. I love working with couples who I can connect with on so many levels.

Their wedding and their love for each other has a “to the moon and back” theme because Chloe is a self-described “space nerd” and an aerospace engineer. Chloe gifted all of her gals with moon and stars necklaces, there were adorable Moon Pies for all of the guests at the reception and lots of moon and stars details throughout their wedding design. As one of the engineers who worked with Lockheed Martin on the last GPS satellite launch last winter (and the mom to a precious rescue pup named Apollo), it’s only fitting for these two!

Enjoy some of my favorites from their beautiful, celestial, May wedding!

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!
