Brantwyn Estate Wedding | Afton & Joe

Afton and Joe chose one of our favorite venues for their ceremony and reception, the regal Brantwyn Estate wedding venue in Wilmington, Delaware. Their wedding was so cute and Afton put so many creative touches into the day, she even made the bouquets and boutonnières herself! The ceremony was in the lower garden and afterwards the newlyweds made their grand entrance onto the back lawn from inside the mansion. Afton and Joe were so sweet and genuine that it was easy to capture the personality of the couple. Here are some of our favorites from the day.

West Chester Engagement Pictures | Sara & Shawn

Sara and Shawn are lucky enough to live right in the heart of downtown West Chester and they knew it would be the perfect location for their engagement session. Let me start off by giving you a bit of backstory on this super-star couple…Shawn was on Wheel of Fortune. He WON. Then he proposed to Sara that night! The episode aired a couple of months later and we were lucky enough to see him answer that winning puzzle on tv! Right off the bat, we knew we were going to have a great session – Sara and Shawn are playful, fun, and easy going. We managed to choose a perfect day for a West Chester Engagement session, because all the gorgeous Magnolia trees were blossoming and the streets of West Chester looked picturesque….literally! Sara and Shawn also introduced us to West Chester’s Everhart Park, which was so serene. We had such a blast and it made us super excited for their August wedding at the stunning Greystone Hall. Stay tuned for those gorgeous wedding photos later this summer!

Villanova Chapel Ceremony & Desmond Hotel Wedding | Amy & Rob

You know you’ve picked the right place to tie the knot when you have to reserve it years in advance; as is the case if you want to have a Villanova Chapel wedding ceremony. Amy & Rob are a special couple to us for many reasons, not the least of which is their dedication to serving our country. We did learn one important lesson: the military knows how to party. The dance floor at the Desmond Hotel reception was crazier than a scene out of Footloose (many thanks for the incredible Don Eaton Band). Amy & Rob’s wedding also broke a personal record for us: most sword wielding people in a room at one time.

Barn on Bridge | Kim & Tom

Kim and Tom’s Barn on Bridge wedding fit their style so perfectly. Kim was one of those awesome DIY brides who put a lot of effort into her centerpieces and cute little touches throughout the venue. We started the day with a first look and they included Kim’s sons in the touching moment as well. The weather was amazing and the outdoor ceremony was full of love and plenty of sunshine. The rustic barn provided a perfect setting for their reception and we loved the clothespin smores and the beautiful candy bar. We are so happy for Kim and Tom and their beautiful family and wish them the very best!

Valley Forge National Park Engagement Session | Jennifer & John

Jennifer and John are both from West Chester but are currently living out of state, so when the forecast called for rain and our Valley Forge National Park engagement session could not be rescheduled – we were all a little worried! Jennifer even came prepared with rain boots in her trunk as back-up! Luckily, the weather was beautiful and besides me (Jaime) getting a few bug bites…like 20 – no photographers were harmed in the making of this session! Jennifer and John are such a fun couple. They were laughing and having fun the entire session – so it made it such a breeze for us! We are so excited for their wedding and their engagement session gave us a taste of what is to come! We’re really excited to join Jennifer and John at the Cork Factory in Lancaster next year!
