Chester County PA Wedding at Greystone Hall | Mary & Ryan

Mary’s maid of honor, Megan, really said it best…Mary is the kind of person who you meet and she instantly makes you feel like you have known her forever. The best word I can think of to describe her is radiant – inside and out (as you will see she is also ridiculously gorgeous!). Ryan is one lucky man, but Mary is lucky too. Ryan is such a great match for her – handsome, kind, friendly, and he shares her amazing taste in music :). Their relationship kind of started with a mix tape actually!

Their Chester County PA wedding took place at the stunning Greystone Hall in West Chester. Their scenic outdoor ceremony showcased the majestic mansion AND the gorgeous grounds as well. Jaws were on the floor as Mary descended from the grand staircase to meet her groom! The ceremony was lovely and touching and it was very obvious that Mary and Ryan are very loved by their friends and family. The entire night went off without a hitch from the tear-jerking speeches to the sentimental parent dances to the adorable flower girls lighting up the dance floor. Congratulations to the happy couple!

Night Wedding Portrait

Hotel Monaco Wedding in Philadelphia | Erin & Ryan

Upon walking in the door of Erin’s Hotel Monaco wedding hotel room, I was graciously greeted by Erin and her mom (both stunning and the nicest people ever!). We actually photographed Erin’s cousin’s wedding previously (shout out to Colleen & Monty!) so I just knew that this group was going to be a blast. I was right, which makes sense because Lincoln tells me that I am always right ;) – he might be humoring me…but I’ll take it!

The ceremony and most of the portrait part of the day took place in Manayunk, where Ryan is from and where him and Erin reside. They put a lot of emphasis on Ryan’s history in his hometown and even swung by the rec center where him and his groomsmen used to hang out on the regular. It was a fun walk down memory lane for them and we loved getting to know them better along the way!

We went back to Hotel Monaco for the wedding reception and it this group proved once again that they were a ridiculously fun crowd. After the sentimental and hilarious speeches, the dance floor was the place to be and everyone was celebrating the marriage of Erin and Ryan to the fullest. We wish you two the very best!

Anthony Wayne House Wedding by Jeffrey Miller Catering | Tara & Matt

We’ve been looking forward to Tara and Matt’s Anthony Wayne House wedding ever since their epic Liberty State Park engagement session in Jersey City. They love Disney, marathons, rescuing dogs and last Saturday they made it all official. As you’re about to see, they poured their hearts into every last detail of the wedding. We always tell our brides that the more personal touches you put into your day, the better. For example, when the father of the bride hand crafts a rustic chic doorway that opens up to the ceremony space, you’re off to a good start (the venue is even hoping to make it a permanent fixture to the space!). As the ceremony music commenced, Matt waited for Tara under a flower adorned pergola at the edge of the woods, where the sun leaked through the trees as we witnessed one of the most romantic ceremonies to date. It was a special moment, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t tear up once or twice as I glanced over at my own husband (that is until he body checked me to get a shot! haha just kidding Lincoln).

This was our first Anthony Wayne House wedding, but let me tell you that we will be back as often as possible. I mean this place blew us away! Amidst 16 acres of gorgeous greenery is the Georgian-style estate of Revolutionary War hero, General Anthony Wayne. The venue has seriously stepped up their game this year by upgrading every last aspect of the space, including a brand new tented pavilion filled with chic touches like floating/glowing mason jars. Oh and let’s not forget the to-die-for farm tables that were assembled from recycled barn wood. Keeping with the local theme, the exclusive caterer, Jeffrey Miller Catering, sources ingredients from local farms (and let me tell you, we’ve been talking about the food ever since!). We can honestly say that an Anthony Wayne House wedding is a serious contender for best outdoor garden themed wedding in the Philadelphia area.

One of our favorite parts of the night was the toasts. Let me preface by saying we’ve seen hundreds of toasts, and know how difficult it can be to entertain 100+ guests while simultaneously conveying a touching message. Jon and Lauren (Tara’s sister) knocked it out of the park, especially when Jon wove together hashtag themed advice for the groom (who works with the Silicon Valley crowd), including the importance of #yesdear. (Now if only Lincoln could learn the same!) 

At the very end of the day, Lincoln and I almost always try to pull off a creative night portrait. Tara and Matt had mentioned that they wanted a picture with the string lights around the fire pit, so we dreamed up what would be a pretty technically challenging shot. We had to relocate some guests and only had about 2 minutes to pull it off, but what we captured is one of our favorite portraits to date :) It’s also currently our most liked image on our new-ish Instagram feed: instagram.com/bartlettpairphotography

Tara and Matt, we love you and wish we could join you in Hawaii! Enjoy the honeymoon!

Longwood Gardens Winter Engagement | Jennifer & Brandon

Jennifer and Brandon are such a cute couple that we knew the second we met that we were going to have no problem capturing their love story! They live in NYC but made the trip down for some winter Longwood Gardens engagement photos. The Longwood Christmas Display is ridiculously gorgeous and definitely puts you in the holiday spirit! We had such a great time exploring the merry decor of the atrium and then wandering outside to capture more rustic, woodsy vibe of Longwood. We had such a great time getting to know them and are already looking forward to their September nuptials!

Ballroom at the Ben Wedding, Finley Catering | Cait & Brian

Whenever our past brides refer their friends/family to us, we get super excited. Partially because that means we get to see them again at said future wedding…but also because our clients are amazing and so by association their friends usually are too! So, when one of our absolute favorite past couples, The Sepichs, sent Cait and Brian our way – we had high expectations. And Cait and Brian’s Ballroom at the Ben Wedding did not disappoint! They were ridiculously fun and so easy to photograph (hello – Cait is gorgeous!).

Their wedding took place on an absolutely perfect November day and we took full advantage by hitting up all of our favorite spots around Philly to sneak in some portraits before it got dark. We even stopped by the bar where Brian proposed to Cait for a picture and a round of shots – shout out to McGillin’s! At the reception silly entrances, heartfelt speeches and epic dance moves took place. We were so thrilled to be apart of Cait & Brian’s wedding day and hope we see them again in the near future (haha, did I mention we love referrals?)! :)
