Megan and Nick's wedding at Tyler Arboretum

Philadelphia area wedding photography

Megan and Nick had a beautiful outdoor wedding at the peak of fall foliage. The vibrant color, combined with the landscape and historic structures of Tyler Arboretum provided scenery that was a photographer's dream. What a great place! Megan and Nick assembled a super team of professionals to pull together their vision for the day. Philadelphia floral designer Margaux St. Ledger of Fleur De Lis styled up some fabulous bouquets and centerpieces. I loved the peacock feather adorned flower girl baskets that held leaves rather than flower petals to spread in the aisle before the processional. This wedding was elegant with a rustic feel. Megan hand crafted many of the details, often utilizing vibrant African fabric that paid homage to Kenya where the couple met on a blind date. Philadelphia area caterer Jeffery Miller delighted guests with food that was a feast for the eyes as well as the mouth. Hors devours and dinner were a hit. They made a carrot cake to rival mom's. So delicious! And the copper kettle of apple cider awaiting guests as they arrived for the ceremony was a nice touch.

This was also a special wedding for us since we had the opportunity to photograph Nick's sister's wedding earlier in 2010. We were honored to share in two such important days in the lives of this family. Thanks Megan and Nick for inviting us to be part of your day!

Allie and Dave's summer wedding at Mountain Springs Lake Resort

I thought I'd try to cure my winter blues by revisiting a warm, sunny summer wedding that hasn't made it to the blog yet. We try to keep on top of things and blog most of our weddings, but sometimes things get hectic and the blog has to wait. Sorry for the delay, Allie and Dave!

Allie and Dave found us shortly after we returned from Oregon, which seems like a very long time ago. Allie was on top of the details and booked her photography early. We were flattered that she called us to double check our availability prior to booking her venue. Because they are local and we shot their engagement photos, we got to know them pretty well and had a great time in the process.

The wedding day was beautiful. It was hot, but they couldn't have asked for a better day for their outdoor ceremony. My favorite moments that I recall: Allie was nervous about running into Dave before the ceremony. We were outside her cabin getting ready to head to the wedding site when she froze in her tracks at the sound of a diesel truck engine nearby thinking that she was hearing Dave's truck. I thought it was so cute that she recognized the sound of her husband's truck engine! I loved Allie and Dave's signature cocktail, the lemon drop martini. So refreshing on a hot summer day and it looked great with the flowers and bridal party colors. And Dave's best man's speech was pretty epic. Josh and  I were laughing along with everyone else.

Allie and Dave- Thank you for choosing us to be your photographers. It was a lovely day and you and your family made us feel very welcome.
