Jeff and I were married on March 13 at Pen Ryn Mansion in Bensalem, Pennsylvania.  It was one of the best days of my life.  The weather was terrible but I ended up loving it.  It was that much warmer and happier inside.  We were surrounded by so many friends and family members and I felt so blessed to have such a wonderful celebration to honor our relationship and our commitment to one another.  I spent at least a week afterwards (even on the honeymoon) wishing we could re-live our wedding day over and over again.

Jeff and I received the disk of our wedding photos from our fantastic photographer, Joe Craig, a few weeks ago.  There were so many amazing images to choose from that I am just getting around to posting the highlights.  Not to worry friends, a honeymoon post is ready to publish and will be up later this week.  Everyone has been asking for Thailand photos but I wanted to go in order, so first things first.  Prepare yourselves for a long post here, I had a little trouble editing things down if you couldn't tell.  Thank you so much to Joe and his team for doing such an amazing job and putting me at ease on my wedding day.  You made me feel 100% OKAY putting my camera down for the majority of the day :) 


I'll never forget this moment with my dad before walking down the aisle.  Jeff said it felt like he was waiting for me for five minutes after all the bridesmaids came in but I'm glad we took our time (and a lot of deep breaths) before walking into the ceremony.  I'll never forget what my dad said to me before walking into married life :)

Jeff and I decided towrite our own vows and I am so so glad that we did.  It is something we will have for the rest of our lives and I think it will be fun to go back and read them in several years and see how our relationship has grown and changed.

I really loved the photos we got outside in the rain.  The light was beautiful and we were forced to get lots of shots quickly since everyone was getting wet!  We were also able to make it to some of our cocktail hour since only Jeff and I braved the weather for photos. 

I had two frames with photos of my grandmothers on my bouquet.  I loved that there was a way to honor them and have them be a part of the wedding even if they were only there in spirit.  A previous client of mine, Katie, had used these little frames with mirros on the back for her bridesmaids' bouquets so I used her vendor, Olivia Moon, and could not have been happier with the results!


One of my favorite vendors which I also found through etsy was Emilie Friday.  She was fast, affordable, and very sweet to work with.  I would recommend her over and over if you need calligraphy work.


And last but not least, my dad serenaded my mom with an Elvis Presley song during the reception and both families broke it down as you can see in the following photos :)  We ended the evening with sparklers thanks to a very attentive and accomodating groomsman who brought all of the necessary supplies!  These ended up being some of my favorite photos.  It was such a magical day and I can't thank everyone enough for all of their hardwork and vision that went into making everything so wonderful!
