Christa and Jeff got married at the beautiful Appleford Estate over the summer. The grounds at Appleford are so picturesque and everywhere you look is lush and beautiful. The estate in addition to the photographs we took at Christa's family home made for a beautiful collection of images. From split-rail fences to their old farm house and horses, I couldn't have asked for more. It is exactly what I imagine for a rural Pennsylvania wedding. I had already shot Christa's brother's wedding and her sister's family multiple times so it was fun to see everyone again and work with them on such a lovely day.
I grew up with Erin at church. We spent many a retreat, lock-in, choir tour, work camp, Christmas Eve service and Sunday night youth group together. The friendships we made in our youth group were some of the strongest and the bonds we formed were strengthened over many years of the rich experiences we shared through church. It was an atmosphere that becomes easy to forget when you graduate high school and abruptly enter the real world of facing a mass of strangers at college and then the actual world of post-college reality. Many of us have moved away from home, but seeing Erin (and Sara!) brought back so many memories and warmed my heart in a way that I am so thankful for. Erin, it was an honor and a privilege to photograph your wedding. You made a stunning bride and I loved sharing every moment with you. Bret, you already know you're a lucky man :) Thank you SO much for trusting me with your most special day. You are such a sweet couple and I wish you a lifetime of health and happiness.
This day was perfect. The weather was beautiful, just the right temperature for Fall and the venue was exquisite. I really loved everything about Nicole and Jay's wedding which made it a joy to shoot. With so many Delaware alumni in attendance, I saw a familiar face every time I turned around. I love shooting weddings for people I know. It feels extra special to be trusted as the person to document such an important day. Thank you, Nicole and Jay for trusting me and giving me such a wonderful day to take photographs of; I truly had been looking forward to your wedding for months!
