Bethany + Brian // Palmetto Riverside Bed & Breakfast Wedding

What an amazing way to end my 2018 wedding season! 

Adam and I’s good friend Mike, (also one of our groomsmen at our own wedding), told me his sister was getting married so of course I had to meet her and her fiancé Brian! The family all lives in Bradenton, Florida where Bethany is the Events Manager at the family owned O’Brick’s Irish Pub + Martini Bar. 

Adam and I were fortunate enough to be a part of the rehearsal dinner and guests at the wedding too! Little did we know it would be a cool 85 degrees in November, but it’s better than the snow we came back to in Philly! 

Bethany + Brian’s wedding was held at the beautiful little Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast. Right on the water front, underneath a spanish moss covered live oak tree. Their good family friend, Florida State Representative nominee, Will Robinson was their officiant! 

After a beautiful ceremony, we were ready to DANCE! For someone who doesn’t enjoy being in front of the camera (I feel you), Bethany surprised us all by singing Franki Valli’s “Can’t take my eyes off of you” to Brian AND surprised him with a late night snack from everyone’s favorite, Chik-fil-A! All in all, I’d say we pretty much nailed this destination wedding. I can’t wait to come visit again very soon ;)

    Naomi + Pat // Champagne Popping Fall Philly Wedding

    YOU GUYS. I am in love with these two. Naomi + Pat’s wedding BLEW MY MIND! What a crazy beautiful, windy, champagne popping, dance battling, “it’s Britney bitch” kinda wedding day I’ll never forget.

    Naomi and Pat found me because of my other fabulous friends who were married earlier this year. You may remember these babes Lauren + Ben from their wedding at La Peg!

    Naomi and Pat had a FaceTime meeting with me while they were in Peru? Maybe Belize? I can’t remember but I knew I had found my people. Naomi and Pat traveled the world this past year while planning their wedding using a lot of points and miles. I attempt to do the same but on a much smaller scale (babies and all). Living this amazing dream and hitting so many of my own bucket list items, it was hard not to get lost in their Instagram posts! (One day, I will make it to Angkor Wat, mark my words!)

    Their wedding day started with some champagne (and ended with it too). Syd, you are the brother I never had. I’m keeping you. Zach was with me of course and started his day with some basil hayden, some of my favorite whisky. We were off to a good start.

    Naomi and Pat actually had two ceremonies on their wedding day. We started at a church in Manayunk then to Artesano Gallery after running all over the towpath having the best time photographing them and their bridal posse. SO WINDY but man are they pretty!

    These two understand each other. They love fiercely. That Nay Cray, you are a force girlfriend. And Pat, I know you love her like no one else can. You two can do anything. Home is wherever you are together <3

      Christina + Julian // Enchanting Fall Wedding Manor House at Prophecy Creek

      Enchanting, mesmerizing, completely spellbound. That’s all I can think of when I relive Christina and Julian’s wedding day.

      These two have known each other since high school and have been in love ever since. How rare it is to find your perfect match at such a young age, weather the storms we all do through college, through jobs, through loss and heartache. Christina and Julian have powered through some incredible obstacles and have built such a strong foundation in each other, they can only be a success together.

      I’ve mentioned before how my favorite part of the day is when my couples see each other for the first time, and this couple did NOT disappoint! Gahhhhhhhh, the way Julian looks at Christina – makes me wanna get married all over again. He was SOOO excited to see her and to just marry her already! I literally could not take a bad photo of these two. I maaaaaay have had to talk myself down from the high of photographing them haha – I mean, LOOK AT THEM!

      I love when my other couples are guests at my current couples weddings too! This time I had a few there and one is expecting their first baby any day :D Can’t wait to meet Baby H! And Sara, girl, I know you caught that bouquet – call me ;) haha!

      Their ceremony at Manor House at Prophecy Creek was officiated by Christina’s late father’s best friend. Since her father passed away from Leukemia, I can think of no better person to officiate his daughter’s wedding! Tears and laughter and all the love your heart could hold. What a beautiful, beautiful day!

      Steph + Shane // Luminous Sunrise Engagement

      It’s not every day I suggest to a couple, “Hey, you know what would be awesome? If we woke up before the sunrise.” But Steph and Shane were totally up for it for their engagement session recently and I can’t tell you how thrilled I am with how everything came out! This morning was just drop dead gorgeous – and so were Steph and Shane. With her flowy gown and Shanes rugged sexy man vibe, they were literally quite luminous in the early morning sunrise! Soft pinks and golds and the calm waves made me feel like we were in another world; so surreal.

      Steph and Shane are two very dear people to me. Steph works with both my husband and our family as she’s our go to babysitter – (STEPH DON’T EVER LEAVE US) hahaha! Shane got lucky and snagged this woman for life when he proposed on this same beach over their family vacation.

      Even though we’ve got to wait two years until their wedding day, I can’t wait to celebrate with them along the way as they start this amazing journey together. <3

        Dana + Ali // Summer blooms at Ridgeland Mansion

        Dana + Ali had THE best wedding day with some of my most favorite people. I met Ali on a skiing trip a few years ago and Dana through all of our mutual friends getting married. Dana is my soul sister with her love of peonies and hippos!!

        Their wedding day was a total blast from beginning to end! I have the best time hanging out with friends and family from weddings we’ve been at together in the past. Dana left us speechless in that gorgeous lace gown and Ali is just the sweetest man. My girl Tanti at Papertini was killin’ it with those peonies and summer blooms on their chuppah, tables and the girls bouquets! Tanti did our florals for our wedding so you know she’s the best and I’ll tell everyone ;) We spent the day hitting up all the beautiful philly spots and eating some Mister Softee before heading to Ridgeland Mansion. Their ceremony was short and sweet, officiated by one of my other fabulous brides from last year ;) It was just perfect. That night we partied so hard with Prince Ali and hot Dana and all of our friends!

        Ali loves Dana so so much. I can’t wait for them to make beautiful little caramel babies so I can buy them ALL the hippo baby supplies <3
