Emily and Austin's Garden Vibes Rosebank Winery Wedding | New Hope, PA

I remember sitting down with Emily and Austin at Zebra striped whale when they were here in Pennsylvania (all the way from Hawaii!) and listening to their incredible vision for their wedding day at Rosebank Winery. They anticipated guests loving the adorable goats and sheep at their venue, described the dual ceremony which would allow them to be married both inside the church and outside in nature, and how excited they were for all the little details to come together. My favorite thing that Emily noted in preparation for her wedding, though, was that they were both most excited to ‘officially become the "old married couple" they've unofficially been for years’. Is that not the sweetest thing you’ve heard?? And how beyond true was this statement. Emily walked up to Austin for their first look and he just couldn’t contain his excitement to see his bride to be. Pure joy radiated from both of them as we walked over to visit the sheep before heading to Tyler State Park for the most gorgeous, sun soaked portraits.

Emily and Austin had not one, but two beautiful ceremonies. We arrived to St. Andrew’s church and Emily walked arm in arm with her father to Austin. It was so special to be a part of this intimate ceremony with just the two of them, their bridal party, and close family. Meanwhile, guests were gathering at Rosebank beneath the perfect large tree in anticipation of seeing the couple. Their second ceremony outside included a ring warming, where guests had a chance to hold their wedding bands and say a prayer or offer a warm wish for these two. They had a unity sand ceremony where they combined sand from two meaningful beaches in Hawaii. These two had so many little pieces of themselves weaved throughout their day.

Their guests enjoyed cocktail hour and soon made their way into Rosebank’s reception space. It was warm and inviting with fresh flowers everywhere! This bride’s vision of soft lighting, flowery garden vibes, and the celebration of life and love came to fruition just beautifully! I loved the pops of color on the tables which mimicked the girls bouquets, Jenga guest book and string lights (you just can’t beat string lights in a reception space!) The celebration continued by means of beautiful toasts and celebration! (Make sure you check out the bouquet toss and picking-up-of-the-groom)

What a joy it was to be a part of Emily and Austin’s wedding day! Enjoy all of the moments that made up their incredible wedding day below. Congratulations again, you two =)

Kelli and Shawn's Rosebank Winery Wedding, Newtown PA

Kelli and Shawn were married at Rosebank Winery in Newtown at the end of May and their day was such a joy to be a part of! In the morning, before heading over to the winery I stopped by the house to capture the girls in their hustle and bustle of getting ready; and Kelli's gorgeous details for the day (can we talk about her stunning jewelry - or how about those Badgley Mischka sandals? I was definitely in awe). Before we knew it everyone was arriving and getting ready to be a part of these two families becoming one. Right before walking down the aisle Kelli had the sweetest first look with her mom and her girls (see below - this was one of a few times that day I was tearing up behind the camera!) I also just have to note Kelli and her bridesmaids flowers done by The Yellow Daffodil . Aren't they just gorgeous? 

Kelli and Shawn joined their two families together beside friends and family at their outdoor ceremony right behind the rustic reception site. Kelli's Dad walked her down the aisle, and at the halfway point her son, Kaden, joined them. I loved the way all three of their boys joined them as they shared vows, such a beautiful moment for this new family! As soon as the ceremony began you could feel all of anticipation of the day melt away to reveal so much joy! The whole ceremony was just so sweet and full of laughs! So in line with who these two are. I love the way Kelli and Shawn love each other - in this incredible sandwich of sweet and sarcastic and silly <3

Following the ceremony the guests headed inside for cocktail hour and were greeted by stunning lights strung everywhere, flowers, and a table full of cakes as we captured sweet family and other photos outside. After dances, the sweetest toast from Kelli's matron of honor (cue the tears pt. 2) and dinner, we snuck out for a few moments of dreamy sunset portraits before Kelli and Shawn partied the night away! When I met with Kelli and Shawn last year they were sure to let me know that it was going to be a party, and oh my, was it! This group definitely goes in the books as one of the craziest bridal parties I have had the pleasure of working with! 

Congratulations again, Kelli and Shawn (and Kaden, Brayden, and Nolan!!) Thank you SO much for choosing me to capture the love and laughter of your wedding day <3
