Hilary and Grant are such a fun, totally perfect for each other kind of couple. We knew instantly when we met them last year at their engagement session that their wedding was going to be amazing because they are just so fun to be around!

Hilary chose a January wedding and hoped for snow – which not all brides do, mind you – and her wish came true! And ours! Because in the winter, nothing looks better in the backdrop of a photo than fresh fallen snow. It was a cold but ridiculously gorgeous Philadelphia Farmhouse snowy winter wedding for sure! And the entire bridal party was adventurous and got a little chilly for us, which was awesome. These two are so sweet together and we couldn’t have been happier to be part of their wedding!

Mary and Oliver are one of those inspiring couples who literally just radiate love. In a crowded room, you could see they only saw each other. Their wedding was sweet, touching and we were just thrilled to be capturing all of the emotion and love of their special day. One of our favorite moments was when Mary got to see her soon-to-be Groom without him seeing her – he was blindfolded but they got to talk, hug and get rid of some of those pre-ceremony nerves within the comfort of each other. It was a very sweet moment!

Their wedding was at the breathtaking Greenville Country Club – we love it there and its really been one of our absolute favorite venues ever since we shot there last summer (special ‘thank you’ to Linda Gaynor for planning perfection!). The festive holiday decor did not disappoint – the halls were decked and perfect for a winter wedding. Their intimate ceremony was even in front of the fireplace! It was a bit of a chilly, blustery December day but that just made their wedding all the more cozy and warm to be part of!

Kim and Chris are one of those couples who can be a crowded room but only notice each other. They are not only super sweet together, but also kept each other smiling and laughing the entire day – which is definitely a good sign! Kim is just absolutely stunning (that dress!) and both her and Chris are not only easy to photograph, but just a pleasure to be around in general!

Their late December wedding at the Down Town Club called for snow, so we came (excited) and prepared in our snow boots to take on the day! The snow did not disappoint – it provided a ridiculously magical backdrop for all of Kim and Chris’s center city Philly portraits. We had the best time trekking throughout parks and historic areas with them to capture them on their wedding day. After we all had enough of the cold we retreated to the insanely gorgeous Down Town Club where Beautiful Blooms worked their magic and left us with a wintery, festive reception space that was gorgeous from every angle. Masquerade was there keeping the dance floor absolutely packed and we (and everyone else there!) had the best time ever all night long. Congrats Kim & Chris!

We fell in love with Kiera and Paul back at their Springton Manor engagement session – and trust me, they are just as fun and lovely in person as they look in their photos! We knew their wedding was going to be pretty epic based on the fact that they are Penn State proud, up for anything, and getting married at the stunning Brandywine Manor House. The entire day was every bit as dreamy as we anticipated.

Kiera is absolutely gorgeous and I am pretty sure I have never seen her frown. She is the most genuine, most kind wife that anyone could ask for! And Paul is her perfect complement – he is sweet and funny and these two make one ridiculously good looking couple! (Can you tell we love them?) Their ceremony was kind of a big deal, not only because Kiera and Paul were being married but also because Kiera’s uncle Ted is a Cardinal and he was there to officiate the ceremony!

It was a perfect day. Brandywine Manor House is so lovely and every single part of its rustic chic amazingness is a photographer’s dream. Their barn cocktail hour had so many personal touches and was so warm and welcoming and their tented reception was light and airy. We loved the homemade succulent favors (Paul is a co-founder of Enliven Planters so we knew there would be tons of gorgeous greenery – and we were right!) and Kiera and Paul even put a handwritten note on the back of each one to each of their 200+ guests! That is so indicative of the type of people they are – so warmhearted and concerned about each and every one of their guests feeling special. We felt so blessed to be part of their wedding and know that these two are bound to have a lifetime of happily ever after!

When Patrick first reached out to us about 3 months before their wedding about being their photographers at Warwick Furnace Farm – a place we had never heard of, but happened to be 15 minutes from our house – we were very intrigued! Luckily, we were free and I can’t describe how happy we are that that was the case! It turns out that Patrick worked to conserve the land across the street from Warwick Furnace Farm and that is how he found the spot! It was literally something out of dreams. Their wedding was definitely a one-of-a-kind and took place on the mansion’s property in a gorgeous barn surrounded by wildflowers across the street from the stunning open fields.

Upon meeting Jennifer and Patrick, you instantly feel like a dear friend. They are compassionate and kind and just so so sincere. When you see them together it is plain as day that they are meant for each other. Everything about their wedding day seemed to be out of a fairytale. Jennifer was an absolute vision and everything from her gorgeous beaded dress to the organic, lush bouquets blended seamlessly into the perfect environment of their intimate affair. We felt so honored to be part of their special day and wish them nothing but the absolute best in all their journeys together!!
