When two of your most incredible friends get married, your boyfriend and college friend are in the groomsman party, the dog is wearing a bowtie, the guys are playing with ice axes, the bride is STUNNING in her Nicole Miller Bridal gown, the fall foliage is absolutely PERFECT, and you get to shoot a wedding at the William Penn Inn and then change into a gala dress halfway through the reception to be a guest, you KNOW it’s going to be a damn good wedding. Well, let me tell you how much Andrew and Faith’s beautiful fall William Penn Inn Wedding did not disappoint.
From the second we arrived at the rehearsal dinner I could feel the emotions coming on. I seriously love all my couples and I feel so honored when someone trusts me to tell their story, and then add on top of that that they are two dear friends and you just reach a whole new level of emotions!
I got the pleasure of meeting Andrew and Faith when I was back in college at Philadelphia University, I think the first time I met Andrew was when a few of us went to Colorado for a ski trip! He and my boyfriend have been great friends since college and since Faith is one of the most awesome people I know, we have gone on a number of great adventures together and we became quick friends. They both attended Philadelphia University as well and led the Cross Country teams. They started dating their Junior Year of college and the rest is a long history of adventures, rock-climbing, hiking, off-roading, and playing with their amazing pup Calvin! I feel so honored that I get to experience so many adventures with them and know we will continue to do so for a lifetime.
While Faith was getting ready at the hotel, the guys were at Andrew’s parents house playing with guns, and ice axes… typical pre-wedding festivities right?
Seriously Faith makes the most beautiful bride!!
Shout out to Faith for MAKING HER VEIL. Seriously, any bride who wants a custom veil, she’s your girl! The ceremony was so special, as Faith’s dad walked her down the aisle and Andrew and Faith said their vows in the church Andrew’s parents got married in. It was personal, and emotional to say the least. After the ceremony, we got to take pictures with this SERIOUSLY awesome old car, followed by formals at the Natural Lands trust Wildlife Preserve in Gwynedd, PA! It was gorgeous!!
How adorable is Andrew’s Grandma Lucy! She had SO much fun all night!!
Best, most beautiful bridal party ever! These ladies looking STUNNING in their Lauren Conrad Bridesmaids Dresses! These flowers from Katie Marshall at the William Penn Inn are seriously to die for! Again, Faith, could you be ANY more beautiful?! Some of my favorite shots!! This veil, though!! Every bride needs a veil like this. Props to my awesome second shooter Colin for his creative eye! We could not WAIT to shoot with this car! I didn’t know if I liked the color or black and white better! Ah decisions, I’ll let you decide =)
And then came party time. I might be biased because I also got to be a guest and had a super cute and handsome date and all my friends surrounding me, but it was one of the best receptions ever! Midnight Hour was their band and they rocked it all night! I think you’ll be able to tell from the pictures just how much fun we had! I’ve been looking forward to this day for a long time and to be totally honest I’m really sad it’s over! Can you guys have an annual anniversary party? Sigh.
But in all honestly, you guys are the best, and you have been such amazing friends to Scott and I. I am so thankful and honored I got to be a part of your special day and capture these memories for you. I can’t wait to see what life has in store for you and am so excited to continue adventuring and traveling with you for decades to come. Wishing you so much love and happiness every day of your life.
Special thanks to my amazing second shooter Colin for letting me be a guest and doing an amazing job all day! And special thanks to these amazing vendors!
