A Sentimental Ceremony in the Pavilion at Scotland Run

The moment that Vince turned around and saw Gianna for the first time gave me alllll the feels! Vince tried to keep his composure as she walked down the aisle, and you could almost feel a large sigh come from him as she approached him. It was everything.  Their ceremony was short and sweet with a big cheer once they were husband and wife!

The Story of Gianna and Vince

Gianna and Vince had been best friends for a few years. There was always something about him that made her feel comfortable and, deep down, she always knew he was the one . They started dating in April of 2014, and then Vince then proposed to Gianna on April 8th 2017! It happened while they were away, camping at their favorite campground surrounded by all of their family! She thought they just came for her birthday, so she was extra surprised!!

Romantic Portraits with the Bride and Groom

Vince and Gianna were so super sweet together!  There was such an ease between the two of them and gosh, the way he looks at her… Swoon!  Since their ceremony was shoot, they were able to get in a little bit of portraits time right before the sun set!  And then a little more after the sun set as well!

A Fun-filled Scotland Run Wedding Reception with all their Friends and Family

Scotland Run Golf Club is so beautiful! From their outdoor pavilion, to their new cocktail hour room (we LOVE that they added that!) to their ballroom filled with windows to see the golf course views! After fun entrances and a romantic first dance, came parent dances.  Gianna danced with her dad, and it was so special. Both of Vince’s parents have unfortunately passed, so, he asked his beautiful sister Christina to dance with him, as well as his new mother in law.  There was not a dry eye in the room.  The rest of the night consisted of laughter and dancing and celebration!!

A Fun Reception with Family and Friends at Blue Heron Pines Golf Club

Blue Heron Pines was the perfect venue for a lovely, rustic wedding!  Not a detail was missed! The wedding experts at Blue Heron Pines, including the brilliant Tara, were truly able to make Michele and Anthony’s dream wedding a reality!

Everyone cheered as the newlyweds were announced and they danced their first dance as husband and wife!  After parent dances, were the speeches!  We love hearing stories about our couples and what happened to get them to where they are today!!  Kyle, the best man, gave one of the best speeches we’ve heard!  He said a few funny words about the groom but THEN game show music started to play and he turned in to the host of his very own Newlywed Game! This was carefully planned out with the DJ ahead of time, and Michele was even in on it. Kyle brought the couple out to the center of the dance floor, and handed Michele her previously answered queue cards, and began a hilarious game of Newlyweds! Unfortunately, Anthony did not get a single question right! haha!

Bride Getting Ready at Homewood Suites

Ina had the best time getting pampered on the morning of her wedding, with her friends and family!  After capturing all of the gorgeous details, we were able to just sit back and capture a few candids. As Ina got into her dress, you could feel the anticipation in the room, and I’m sure the butterflies grew!  She headed down to have a First Look with her dad.  Have I told you lately how much I LOVE these moments?  It was so sweet the way her dad looked at her!

The Story of Auri & Katelyn

Who knew that attending a Trivia Night could lead to finding your soul mate?!  After meeting one another through a mutual friend, Auri and Katelyn would find little excuses just to see one another… whether it was a simple lunch date to grabbing drinks or even just a Target run!  But the date that truly encompasses the beginning of their happlily ever after would be Halloween of 2015!  It was that night that Auri left her friends to race to the train station to go into Philly to meet up with Katelyn!

The moment that Katelyn’s friends knew that these two ladies were meant to be? When the train into Philly stopped at the station that Auri was supposed to get on at, and she wasn’t there yet (she was still buying her ticket), Auri told Katelyn to go ahead with her friends, and she would meet up with them.  Well, as Auri got up the stairs of the station to catch the next train – there was Katelyn!  She apparently has never waited for anyone before, and she told her friends they would meet them there because she wanted to wait for Auri!  Swoon! <3 These two lovebirds moved in with each other about a year later.

It was a beautiful April night, on the beach at the Polynesian Village Resort in Disney World. This was the day that Auri and Katelyn got engaged!  What an absolutely perfect moment, and at their favorite vacation spot!

Newlywed Portraits at Running Deer Golf Club

Auri and Katelyn’s portraits were peaceful and romantic. They were everything you could imagine on your wedding day. Those few moments to just let it soak in, take a glimpse at your hand, with that shiny new bling, and embrace your new wife. Soft whispers of “We did it”, and “I love you so much” could be heard between them!

A Reception Filled with Fun and Laughter at Running Deer Golf Club

When you walked into the ballroom at Running Deer Golf Club, all of the touches of Sunflowers and Navy and Yellow made the room feel so beautiful and welcoming!

The reception was full of energy and fun! There was laughter, and bubble guns, there were tons of smiles, and dancing! Their first dance together, just the two of them on the dance floor, totally un-choreographed, and just so serene. It was in that moment that you realized, you just helped capture something that they have fought long and hard to get, and along the way certain people chose not to be there… but they chose love. At the end of the day, we all have to choose love!!

Directly after they were announced, toasts were given, Katelyn’s Dad mentioned he knew Auri was the one, when she came over and cooked Katelyn dinner, and he saw that his daughter was eating asparagus … when she hated asparagus, or at least would never eat it for him… but she would eat it for Auri.

Father daughter dances were sweet. Auri danced with her Uncle. They had such a sweet time together. Katelyn wore a suit to the wedding, but when it was her turn to dance with her Dad, he had to wait a few minutes.. It was silent and awkward, and jokingly, he even questioned if she had stood him up! Then, Katelyn emerged wearing a long white wedding gown. Her Dad was shocked to say the least!! They danced, and smiled, and I think we saw some tears. He twirled his daughter around so many times, it definitely brought tears to my eyes!

The rest of the evening was filled with so much dancing and fun!!!

To wrap things up, their cake cutting was perfect. They started off with little bites, gently feeding one another.. then Katelyn let Auri have it. It was all laughter, and then went back to dancing the night away! It was a good night.

The Story of Stevi & Andrew

Stevi and Andrew have known each other nearly all of their lives, since they are from the same town, with a lot of the same friends. They went to the same high school and graduated a year apart.  Andrew’s mom actually tried to set them up while they were in high school, but neither really went for it.  They both went away to college, moved around a bit, and moved back home around the same time. They first reconnected after running into each other at a bar, and then again when Stevi had to visit Andrew’s work to get her windshield fixed!

A great first date turned into the most fun two years of dating and traveling!   From Croatia to Charleston to Hudson Valley and Lake Placid… their most memorable trip to date was to Nashville!  This is where Andrew popped the question, and of course Stevi said YES!

A Meaningful Ceremony at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Parish St Michael Church

Everyone was SO excited as they arrived at the church! The moments leading up to the Stevi walking down the aisle to Andrew were filled with excitement. And gosh, the moment when Andrew saw Stevi for the first time was
magical. You could tell he was so ECSTATIC. The ceremony went perfectly! Everyone was elated as the couple came
down the aisle! MARRIED! Everyone recessed from the church, then the couple came out and Lavender was thrown!
