Nicole and Alex's The Gables at Chadds Ford Wedding | St Agnes Church West Chester | Philadelphia Wedding Photography

This autumn, on one of our beautiful, warmer-than-it-should-have-been weekends, Nicole and Alex were married! We began the day at The Gables at Chadds Ford where Nicole and her girls got ready. So, this venue... absolutely amazing. They care for their couples, their food is incredible (incredible) and it is just beautiful! I loved taking advantage of their fall decor for Nicole's detail photos. I'll always utilize a pumpkin as a backdrop for jewelry! The girls had a lovely morning spending time together getting their hair and make up done (shout out to Daneen Jensen & Associates for your beautiful work!), gushing over the beautiful bride and taking a few photos before heading off to the church. One of my favorite things is when a bride and her father decide to have a "first look" - can we just talk about Nicole's Dad's reaction for a second?? It still brings tear to my eyes, so much joy! Meanwhile, Alex was not far away getting ready to see his bride to be! 

These two stood in St. Agnes Church in West Chester to say their "I do"s. There is something so special about seeing your bride for the first time walking down the aisle. Alex's sweet reaction just says it all! A ceremony, kiss, and bubble exit later we were soon traveling to Everhart Park, followed by the Red Barn right next door to the Gables for some sweet and fun portraits! We made our way back over to The Gables just in time for cocktail hour (yum!) before heading into the barn to dance the night away. Some other highlights: polaroid guest book, punny signature drink, a drop dead gorgeous first dance and some pretty amazing night portraits! Keep scrolling to see the magic =)

Nicole and Alex, what a joy it was to be a part of your day (and to get to know you two awesome people!!) Congratulations again!
