Kate and Thomas'
For two people who spend their time studying space, Kate and Thomas are a pretty down to earth couple. Josh learned that they are both astronomers at their engagement session this spring. They wanted a beautiful outdoor location for their ceremony and they found that in the woods at the Quaker worship grove at the Pocono Lake Preserve. They made the wedding a whole-weekend event, inviting everyone out for the rehearsal dinner, a wedding day cookout, some wedding-day games (kickball!) and a post-wedding brunch. It was really important to them to spend as much time with their loved ones as possible. They were going for an outdoorsy/rustic vibe and they dressed up the lovely wooden interior of the dining camp with centerpiece flower arrangements made by Kate's mother.

During the planning stages, Kate and Thomas said their ideal wedding was relaxed and full of beautiful scenery. The Preserve provided plenty of beautiful backdrops for their day, but it was the DPNAK team that delivered on the relaxation. Her and her crew were on top of every detail so that the bride and groom didn't have to be. This was our first time working with Danielle and her planning was so thorough, we didn't have to come up with our own timeline for the day. That's never happened. It was pretty nice. Thanks again Danielle!
