Dana and Colin's wedding at Tyler Arboretum

wedding at Tyler Arboretum

We've been looking forward to Dana and Colin's wedding ever since they made the trip to see us in Jim Thorpe for their engagement photos. We enjoyed getting to know them and knew being part of their big day would be a blast!

Dana and Colin chose the beautiful Tyler Arboretum for their late summer wedding. We love working at Tyler not only because it is a fun place full of natural beauty and historic character, but also because it is managed by Jeffrey Miller Catering. They have done a fabulous job every time we have worked with them and Colin and Dana's wedding was no exception. However, this was the first time we've photographed their floral designs (Buttercup is JAM's floral division) and I am in love - as you'll see from the number of photos involving the flowers!

Beautiful details and atmosphere aside, Colin and Dana's wedding was all about being with the people they care most about. When planning the day, Dana had this to say:

It's important to us that this ceremony and celebration include our guests and that it represent not only the two of us coming together, but also the uniting of our friends and family. We've felt them gather so strongly around us in the days leading up to our wedding, and it's so encouraging to feel that support and so rewarding to see strangers become family.
They are also both music lovers and the live music at their event was great! Among other tunes, I loved hearing Ashoken Farewell performed by International Strings in the time leading up to the ceremony. And lot of my favorite moments came later on the dance floor, where wedding band Blue Label did an excellent job of keeping the party going. Scroll on to view these and other favorites!
