Finishing up Rachael & Jimmy's wedding and there are a lot of moments I love. 
 
But this one sticks with me. 
 
Wedding are public pronouncements of commitment, but it's always these private moments that I love. Rachel's mom was adjusting her dress shortly after it went on. It was the first moment she was able to take it all in: Rachel, in her dress, in all her beauty.

Cindy & Karen | The Farm at Eagles Ridge

Jul 7, 2016
Weddings
Most couples marry toward the beginning of their relationship.  
 
It was different for Karen and Cindy.  
 
After twenty-five years of living together, loving each other and raising a family, they married in June at The Farm at Eagles Ridge in Lancaster.  
 
In vows they made promises for the future; They were promises Cindy and Karen have been living for twenty-five years.  
 
It was a very emotional day, a culmination of all that had come before and a look forward to all that lies ahead.

Jessie & Doug | Lutz-Franklin Schoolhouse

Jun 10, 2016
Weddings
Doug and Jessie's wedding venue was so unusual I asked to have their planning meeting onsite. It was a one room schoolhouse near Hellertown, Pennsylvania where Doug's grandmother, Ella, was once a student.  
 
On their wedding day, as they exchanged their vows, I was thinking about Ella; A young girl toiling over arithmetic in that very space. I found myself wondering what she would think of her unborn son's unborn son, someday walking into that very classroom and standing right up front by the chalkboard, marrying the girl of his dreams? 
 
The Lutz-Franklin Schoolhouse is a museum now, but still holds all the charm you might imagine: wavy glass windows, a coal-fired stove, old hardwood floors and neat little rows of children's desks. 
 
I was thrilled at the opportunity to work in such a unique space.
