Looking for something?
This classic Avalon wedding was one of the best wedding days I’ve had the joy to be a part of! Kelly and Kevin’s wedding was at the Avalon Yacht Club on a beautiful late summer day. Kelly had a “first look” with her dad which was so cute how giddy he was to see her. Their ceremony was held at a little chapel in Avalon. Kevin ran into some issues remembering his lines haha. Afterwards we drove all over the island photographing on the beach and at the bar in the VERY spot Kevin and Kelly first met. What an awesome experience to be able to photograph a couple on their wedding day in exact same place they first met. Kelly’s cheesy pick up line clearly worked haha. I can’t take a bad photo of these two! I’m loving everything. Kelly and Kevin were so completely in tune with each other, their love just radiated and touched us all.
We caught a gorgeous sunset before their reception began. We heard some of the most heart felt toasts I have ever witnessed. There was no way I was getting out of this without some tears myself. Kevin serenaded his bride a few times throughout the night. It was unforgettable!
The weather was on point. The bridal party was so happy and full of energy. The bride and groom were so in love and I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to get to know them and their families on such an important day in their lives. Seriously, Kelly and Kevin are two extremely hard working, thoughtful, humble and kind individuals. Their families were so welcoming and wonderful to spend the day with. I couldn’t ask for a better couple!
Becca and Andy have been such a wonderful couple to get to know. They met in college and wound up in Boston for work after graduation. Becca eventually convinced Andy to come back down to the Philly area and has since continued to try and make him an Eagles fan – Andy is and always will be a Patriots fan haha.
I am honored actually, this is the first time my name has ever been mentioned in a card to my bride that she read while getting ready! Thanks Andy ;) They exchanged their vows by the lakeside at The Lake House Inn surrounded by their closest loved ones. The evening went on with some napkin hats (still not sure what happened there), and an epic performance to Celine Dion’s – It’s all coming back to me. I couldn’t have asked for a better day with a better family. Congratulations Becca + Andy!!
Sometimes people come into your life for a reason and all the pieces just fit. Sometimes it just clicks. Kristin + Erik just get each other. He is the peanut butter to her jelly. She is the moonshine to his mason jar. Or in this case, the wine to his cheese. I met up with these two recently for their engagement session one afternoon at Heritage Vineyards. It started out a little cloudy that day but by the time the evening came, the clouds parted and some spectacular light showed up while we walked through the cherry tree fields. Their wedding will be held here next summer as well and I just can’t wait.
One of my last weddings this season was with this awesome couple Becky and James! Their Fall botanical wedding was held at the Horticulture Center in Fairmount Park. Their reception was designed by Maggpie Vintage Rentals. Florals by Twinning Gardens. And our gorgeous brides hair and makeup was done by Aleksandra Ambrozy.
I started the day with Becky and all of her ladies brunching at their home in Philly. Their cat Nacho helped Becky get ready in her gorgeous beaded gown. James is an illustrator and also designed their wedding invitations himself.
What a sweet moment it was to see Becky tear up when she saw James for the first time! The time we spent with James and Becky was so fun and relaxed and full of love from beginning to end!
