Petra and Drew's
Petra and Drew's wedding was a fun, laid back affair with great company, good music and gorgeous details. What else would you expect when an artist marries a musician? The Sterling Guest Hotel provided an amazing backdrop for the day. Actually, they had pretty much free reign over the place for the entire weekend. What a place! I (Amber) shot this one solo and had a blast exploring the mansion and grounds.

There was a refreshing variety of music at this wedding. Drew is a drummer with the Billy Bauer Band and fellow band member Chris Lorenzetti played violin during the ceremony. Another friend and musician, Jamie Martin, DJed the reception. Drew Nugent and the Midnight Society came up from Philadelphia to perform their cocktail hour-and-a-half. They are a 5 piece 1920s era dixieland-style jazz band that includes a hot tea kettle among their instrumental menagerie. The band was a nod to one of Petra's favorite musical styles and fit in perfectly in the old mansion atmosphere.
Petra and Drew, congratulations and thank you again for trusting me to tell the story of your day in photos. Scroll on to check out some of my favorite moments from the day.
