Liberty Forge Altland House Wedding Photographer: Khoa & Tina

Two elegant, joyful souls united by their strong Christian faith and Vietnamese culture…

Liberty Forge Altland House Wedding Photographer-101
You may remember Khoa and Tina from their sweet coffee shop engagement and their romantic love story.  They are now enjoying married life, no longer separated by 800 miles, but united as one family and this is the story of their wedding day :).

Khoa and Tina were both born in Vietnam and moved to the United States as children.  They  incorporated Vietnamese elements into their day, one of which was Tina’s gorgeous Ao Dai which she changed into during the wedding reception.

They have tremendous respect to their family and friends.  That, along with their strong Christian faith played a very important role in their wedding day.  Khoa and Tina are both joyful loving people, and Tina has a very elegant and introspective side to her as well, which really shines through during her preparations:

I love this image of Tina’s bridesmaids praying for her on the morning of her wedding.  They have been praying for her to meet her husband and she continues to pray for them as well.

As the only child, Khoa never experienced what it meant to have a brother or sister, but through the Vietnamese Alliance Church, he received unconditional love from his brothers and sisters in Christ, especially his groomsmen who were always there for him, and sacrificed their time, money and everything they could to protect him and support him.

During his Vietnamese engagement, one of them declined an opportunity to make thousands of dollars during that weekend and said to him “you only get married once, I would never miss your day for anything else.”  They taught Khoa that you don’t have to be related to be loved as a sibling.

It had been seven years since they had all been together at church and everything looked exactly the same– even the playground where they met as children in elementary school.  This seemed to really bring out the kid in them:)

When guests arrived at the reception they were greeted by sweet, romantic, hand-made centerpies, eggrolls and adorable Vietnamese magnets.  They made the centerpieces themselves as they both enjoy being creative, the magnets were actually crafted in Vietnam and the eggrolls were lovingly made by Khoa’s parents.

During Khoa & Tina’s first dance, sunlight shone at exactly the right angle through the window creating this stunning light– it looks almost spiritual, which is even more perfect for these two.   I love this image of Tina’s dad watching her dance, you can almost feel the love that he has for her.

Tina’s sister’s speech was emotional and genuine.  She shared about growing up and sharing each others clothes and make-up and what a joy it was for Thu, as Tina’s sister, to realize that she has finally found the man that she has been praying for all this time.

Khoa and Tina’s friends were filled with the same joyful spirit as this couple and it showed on the dance floor.   There was so much energy in teh room and lots of break dancing.  I really liked this man’s moves– it reminds me of marital arts.  :)

Above you can see Tina wearing her So Dai– could they be more happy?  I think it’d be impossible!  Below you can see them with all of their friends on the dance floor.  What a fun group!

Khoa and Tina, it has been such a pleasure to get to know you and your family and friends!  I wish you all the very best in your very bright future!

Glasbern Inn Wedding Photographer: Lara & Brett

This eclectic, organic wedding united a couple who started dating *in middle school* their wedding day ended with surprise fireworks provided by Lara’s dad!!!

You may remember Lara and Brett from their gorgeous Longwood Gardens engagement session.  You can visit the link to see those images and to hear more of their story, including how their relationship started in *eighth grade* when Brett asked Lara to the middle school dance :).

Lara and Brett wanted their wedding to have a elegant, eclectic, organic feel and decided on floor-length black gowns for the bridesmaids and gray tuxes for the groomsmen.  Lara had an awesome team of vendors on her side.  First off, I love working at Glasbern Inn!  It is a farm to table eatery so everything is fresh & organic including their decor.    I could go on about her other vendors, because they were all stellar, but will instead link to them throughout this blog post and start showing you the PHOTOS…

Golfing and fishing are two of Brett’s favorite hobbies.  He and several of the groomsmen share those passions and take trips together on a pretty regular basis… how awesome that they were able to watch a little golf while getting ready and enjoy the pond at Glasbern, time to gear up, guys!  :)

Lara, you are so beautiful on the inside and out! I loved watching the bridesmaids’ reactions to seeing Lara in her wedding gown, so sweet.  Excellent job by both Jon’s Bridal by Suzanne and Lauren’s Make Up Designs.

For the ladies bouquets Lara had wanted purple, eggplant, raspberry, mauve, merlot tones that also had a garden feel– so well executed,  Ross Plants and Flowers!

These dresses hit the elegant/organic/eclectic note that Lara was going for perfectly!  They are all unique as each one is hand-wrapped by the bridesmaid to whichever shape suits her best– what an awesome idea.  I would have never thought of using the black floorlength gown for this setting, but it was just perfect and looked very sophisticated.  The dresses are by Dessy and called the Twist Wrap Dress.

The first look… check out this huge smile on Brett’s face!  Leading up to the first look Brett said he was feeling excited and nervous– he knew Lara was going to look amazing, but she looked even more amazing than he could have ever imagined.  He shared that he was happy that they chose to have a “first look” before the ceremony because it made seeing Lara for the first time more private.  It also allowed them to get all of thier photos finished before the ceremony so that after it they could get to see all of their family and friends at cocktail hour.

The braided rope basket went perfectly with their theme, but why the pencils?  Brett and Lara actually created a game on the back of the wedding program to entertain guests while they waited for the ceremony to begin.  It featured cute trivia from Lara & Brett’s story and was a nice, personal touch.  So, I told you that the florals were stunning, but how about this arch?  It’s so whimsical and romantic– such an awesome fit for this wedding!

The Elysium Spring Quartet performed as the guests were seated and as the wedding processional began.

Lara was determined to take in every moment and appreciate all that was going on around her.  She laughed, she cried, she lived in the moment and soaked it all in.  She was overwhelmed by the amazing view, beautiful weather, all of  their loved ones surrounding them, not to mention Brett and his vows!  Brett is more of an introvert, so sharing his deepest feelings in a public setting is rare and something to be treasured.  He wrote his own vows which brought tears to Lara’s eyes.

Most of my packages include a guestbook that functions both as a space for guests to sign and leave a personal message on the wedding day and a keepsake album for your favorite engagement photos (above). Below, a perfect favor for a farm to table wedding, a personal-sized local honey that is labeled “Lara & Brett: meant to bee”   They were created by Sheryl Roland, Lehigh Valley beekeeper.

Exquisite cakes were created by Colleen & Terry Laky from Piece ‘a Cake.    Lara said she was “sold” at the tasting where they sampled the flavors (Swiss buttercream icing on vanilla with lemon and raspberry filling was amazing).  Later, Colleen sketched a drawing of the cake as Lara described what she was looking for and showed them samples of the succulents that she could create out of fondant– that’s right those flowers on the cake are made out of icing!!!  The natural, artistic design was just what Lara was looking for!

Now for the cake smash… Brett was a total gentleman and good sport and let Lara get the best of him…

Lara’s dad is known as “Jimbo” by his friends and is known for his jokes and magic tricks and always has something up his sleeve.  When Lara was a little girl he hired a magician to come to her birthday parties and also used to put on little magic shows of his own for her.  Lara and Brett knew that he really wanted to make the day extra special for them and figured that he might have something planned but weren’t sure what it would be.

“Jimbo” called Lara and Brett up in front of their guests and said that true love would be able to light the lantern.  When they kissed the fireworks started.

The next image shows Lara watching the fireworks with the guests and her husband and father.  I like how her dad’s hand on his little girl’s shoulder and she has her hand up to her face, in I think what is shock and awe– what a very sweet moment! I love capturing moments like this!

Since Lara & Brett met in middle school (Springhouse Junior High to be exact) what could be more perfect than I school bus photo?  I couldn’t resist.:) Lara and Brett I wish you all the best and am so happy to have had the opportunity to work with you both for your engagement and wedding photography!

 

 

Hauser Estate Winery Wedding Photographer: Beth & Federico

On top of the world on the rolling hills of Hauser Estate Winery…

Beth and Federico met in 8th grade and were close friends.  They started dating after high school and have been together ever since.  They live out of state and chose to come to me in Pennsylvania for their engagement photos.  I’ll also be photographing their wedding in New Jersey next year.:)

Beth was looking for something that was rustic and Federico wanted something that felt like home (Fed’s family is from Italy and wanted beautiful scenery with rolling hills and mountains like are in the Provence of Molise where they are from).  They decided on Hauser Estate Winery outside of Gettysburg.

Beth and Federico were so amazed at how well this setting worked for them, it had “Italian” hills that Fed wanted and the country feel that Beth was going for (check out the awesome truck).  I agree that we couldn’t have found a better location!!!

On the day of the shoot we had some challenging conditions, there were 15mph winds (think of blowing hair and squinting eyes) also the clouds were super-thick and would blow across the sky giving us blinding sunlight or dark shade, and dance between the two, changing in a matter of seconds.

Beth & Fed’s awesome attitudes really impressed me, they were so upbeat and content– unaffected by the circumstances.  Dealing with the light and wind meant some adjusting for all three of us, but wow, check out that sky and how beautifully the sun lit the landscape– unbelievable!!!

Federico plays in a band, so he brought his guitar along to the shoot.  Beth loves country music and even though Federico doesn’t play in a country band, the rustic aesthetic of the Hauser Grounds made Beth feel like she was in a country music video :).

Doesn’t Beth have the sweetest freckles?  I think they are so beautiful and with her auburn hair– wow!   Fed is looking very dapper in his dress shirt, too!:)
