Friday, Liesa and I had the pleasure of shooting Casey and John’s wedding. We arrived at Casey’s parents to find the girls quite calm and ready to go! After a few shots outside, we headed off to the church, St Barthalomews in Manchester MD. I absolutely loved photographing in this church! The light coming from behind them was so amazing during the ceremony that I had to use it photographing them together. A few quick family formals outside and we were off to the reception where they had so much fun, they had to extend the reception! Congratulations!!!
After Liesa and I got home from Paris, we began missing our new ‘french’ family, the Spaniers, Cuilhe’s, and all of our new friends that adopted us into their families. Luckily for us, Ed & Hadley got to do it again, that’s right – they also let us ‘follow them’ around for an American wedding. The entire wedding was held in Hadley’s parents backyard. The ceremony was so personal and intimate with Hadley’s father officiating and reception was so beautiful! The details took us right back to France.
The party went on all night thanks to Tommy Wareham and Graham’s one man band!
Hadley and Ed, thank you so much for introducing us to our new love for France ( or just the baguettes )
We are crossing our fingers for a third wedding reception, just so we can party and photograph you both again!
Wednesday, WGAL news 8 came over to do a story. So, Joanna and Emma volunteered to be my models. But, it also worked out that it was time for another shoot with Emma anyway. Here are just a few from our session.
I can’t even begin to tell you of the amazing experience we had shooting Ed and Hadley’s wedding in France.
Liesa and I arrived Friday morning in Paris and got settled before rehearsal dinner that evening at the Hotel de France in Versaille. It was just close family and friends and we were welcomed as family.
Saturday, everyone got ready at the hotel before being shuttled to the Mayor’s office in Louvecienne. The legal ceremony has to be performed by the Mayor. Then it was off to the Catholic church for the more traditional ceremony. After being blessed with a shower of rice exiting the church, Hadley, Ed and everyone walked up the street to l’Etang for cocktail hour in which anyone can come to. Food and drinks were flowing! After 2 hours there, were walked just a little more to Ed’s parents home for dinner. They had a beautiful tent set up in their yard to host all the guest. Course after course came and it kept getting better. When it was time to “cut the cake”, the caterers brought out a flaming presentation of deserts along with the cream puff tower that Ed and Hadley cut and fed each other. Michel, Ed’s father also brought out the last bottle of wine from the grand parents vineyard and let everyone share in drinking it. After midnight, we all headed home to get ready for brunch on the lawn of the Chateau de Versaille in the morning.
By early afternoon, we all met and walked over to the Chateau gardens where we all sat, ate and took in the gorgeous view.
Later, Hadley and Ed got back in their wedding attire so we could go around Paris and shoot. I am still sitting here not believing it….
Michel drove us around to some of the place they wanted to go. We did stop at the Eiffel tower for a few minutes until some of the World Cup soccer fans started rocking Michel’s car an almost rioting…so we got out fast. The last place we went was the Palais-Royal. I had been dreaming of this place for weeks. There were a ton of tourists, but I managed to pull it off!
My terrible writing really does not sum up everything that we saw, or how the trip went, so I will let the images speak for themselves.
Stay tuned for Part Deux from PSU.
Au Revoir!!! We are out of the office from Thursday June 10- Thursday June 17th. We are off to PARIS to shoot a wedding!!
We will have very little internet and phone. I apologize for any inconvience. We will return all emails and calls when we get back. If you want to check out some of out adventures while we are there, you can go to our Facebook page where we will try to update as much as we can!!
Katie and I had the priviledge of photographing Elizabeth and Ryan’s wedding.
Elizabeth was absolutely graceful and stunning in her mothers veil.
The ceremony was held at the Wrightville Presbyterian church in Wrightsville. I love the fact that Elizabeth knew I would love the church and places around it because they fit my style of shooting.
After the ceremony and some quick shots around the church, we headed to the Country Club of York for the reception. Everything was perfect!
Isabella is 2 and I can’t believe it! It always amazes me how fast kids grow, especially when I have been photographing them since birth. Isabella is no exception! I haven’t seen her since she turned one and was blown away by the gorgeous curls on her head and how much she was talking. We met at Long’s park for her 2 year session. I love going there with the kids because they can just play and be themselves. Here are some of my favorites from the day!
Saturday was the beautiful wedding of Kirstin and Liam at Lime Spring Farm in Lancaster.
All the girls got ready at the Marriott in the city and then we walked to St. Mary’s for the ceremony.
The wedding party then jumped on the trolley and headed to Lime Spring where they all joined the guests for cocktail hour and then the pig roast reception. The food was sooo incredible!
