Lakewood Wedding Photography: Kathleen & Jeff

You may remember Kathleen & Jeff from their beach engagement shoot.  Their wedding was just as elegant and fun– they had a great party atmosphere at Eagle Ridge Country Club complete with a party bus, signature drinks and a live orchestra, but also very intimate moments with family members and friends that I’m sure neither of them will ever forget.   I still get a little emotional when I think of her uncles walking her down the aisle.

^ Kathleen’s mom.  Randy, from Say Yes to the Dress, creatively added the “belt” to her dress– it was originally a headpiece.  Stunning!

Above, Kathleen’s Uncles escort her in the rain.  Below, Jeff and his best man wait for the ceremony to begin– no you are not seeing double– they are twins!

^ “Look at me, mom– I’m a firefighter!”

The signature cocktails and Jack Faulkner Orchestra set the mood for a fantastic night of celebration!

Kathleen’s uncles pulled her aside and told her “Your dad is and always will be with us.”

Then they showed her the photos of her father that had been kept in their tux pockets when they walked her down the aisle.   Wow, that is family!

Kathleen & Jeff– I wish you all the best in your next chapter together.  Glass Slipper Wedding Planners– thank you for connecting us!

Washington DC Engagement Photography: Laini & Kyle

Sharing an evening with this fun-loving DC couple was a great experience,We visited the Washington monument which is actually where Kyle proposed– it was great to see them together at the site, all smiles,  re-telling their story.   Aside from that they explored the streets together– we topped it off with some fab food and drink at Elephant and Castle— thanks for a great evening, guys.  I’ll definitely be back 🙂 .   Enjoy!

^ I told you they were fun, this was totally their idea 🙂  Below, check out his glasses– do you notice anything?  

^ I can imagine them riding bikes down the city streets together in 30 years, can’t you?

^ I love how happy they are here– maybe it’s because they are in their Gator-gear 😉

Really nice work Lisa.
What a fun set!

[…] Laini and Kyle’s colorful garden wedding was held at the beautiful Skytop Lodge.  They had a bright, sunny day and added tangerine and pink tropical flowers (as a nod to their meeting at the University of Florida), wow do their colors pop!  They also incorporated several Jewish traditions and offered fun entertainment for the guests (archery, golf, pool, etc).   A huge thank you to my friend Jim for his assistance second-shooting this wedding, epic work!

Elmira Country Club Wedding Photography: Elaine & Matthew

Elaine and Matthew’s wedding was one of simple elegance and natural beauty, something you may have expected if you saw their  country engagement photos.  We met at Elaine’s family farm to prepare for the wedding then to her home church for the ceremony and celebrated at Elmira Country Club.  Children were a key part of the day– what characters!  Overall, the day was one of joy, peace and celebration.

You have probably heard the popular verse “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”

A little history here: The verse is said to have started in Victorian England “Something old” symbolizes continuity with the bride’s family and the past. “Something new” means optimism and hope for the bride’s new life ahead. “Something borrowed” is usually an item from a happily married friend or family member, whose good fortune in marriage is supposed to carry over to the new bride. The borrowed item also reminds the bride that she can depend on her friends and family.

In Elaine’s case, her grandmother’s handkerchief in her bouquet was old, the wedding rings were new, she borrowed her veil and her shoes were adorable and blue!

Their was rain in the forecast all day, but the window of time when we would be outdoors was completely clear, well almost!

Matthew’s brothers’ toast included a “top ten list” that was clever, thoughtful and thoroughly enjoyed by all.

 (Feel free to paste the list in the comment section if you like, gentlemen 😉 )

Elaine and her friends found inspiration from the royal wedding and wore hats to the reception.

Matthew and Elaine love children and they were a key part of the wedding.  Each child had their own style and were so much fun to watch.

It was a real pleasure working with this couple and with the Elmira Country Club.  Thank you for sharing your day with me!

Matt & Elaine: Congratulations on your most beautiful wedding and my brothers and I wish you both the very best of happiness, health, and good fortune in the years to come. Here is a suggestion for Elaine, however. Keep Matt away from the Elmira Country Club or she may never see him. All the best to you both. John Monfredini

Central PA Senior Portrait Photography: Reynah & Margeaux

Twins Reynah & Margeaux wore vintage 1920’s dresses, rode their horses and enjoyed the beautiful landscape of middle spring PA.    I was inspired by the beauty of the landscape and fascinated by the bond that they share as twins.  I hope you enjoy this unique photo shoot as much as I do, it is one that I will always remember.

^ can you spot them?  This is the stunning “middle spring” wow!

I couldn’t choose a favorite 😉

^The horses are just as close as these young ladies

This last photo is for their dad.  He is an Olympian and an inspiration to them as they train and compete– running is a “family sport” for them.

 

Carlisle Wedding Photography: Sarah & Luke

Pinwheels, bubbles and adorable children were key to Sarah & Luke’s Dickinson College wedding in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.    Sarah is crafty and actually made all the pinwheels herself, she even found a way to include them in several ways including as boutonnieres and cake decor– check it out!  They are both young at heart and there is something that feels very organic about their relationship– relaxed, simple and natural.

Luke is wearing his grandfather’s watch so that he could be close to him on this special day.

Ready for her “first look” with Luke!

One nice thing about having two photographers (like Kris and I at Rhinehart Photography) is getting two different perspectives.

The bubble photos are a great example.

^ They served specialty wines, Luke chose his dad as “best man” and incorporated the pinwheel theme into their cake.

Their favors were pinwheels as well– it was fun to watch everyone playing with them.
