Austin + Leanda // Rainy wedding day with a side of sunshine

I can't praise Leanda + Austin enough for being absolute troopers throughout their day. It wasn't scheduled to rain until after their ceremony but we all know how Mother Nature likes to play tricks on us. It started spitting rain within 5 minutes of walking down the aisle. If you ask me, it made for one heck of a story + images that you'll never forget! 

Not only did they stick out the rain throughout the ceremony, they were even willing to get wet for portraits. We never really know when the rain will stop on a wedding day, it may or it may not. So I like to get them done as soon as possible so we have them done and we don't miss anything. As luck would have it, later when the skies cleared, I said "Lets go back out!" (it was super laid back and I love wedding days like this!). Leanda + Austin headed back out for more portraits without an umbrella this time. What do you know, we get the most beautiful golden hour shortly after. Who would have known that a forecast for rain all day and a few heavy rain showers would all lead to gorgeous images with even a rainbow.

We ended the night with the closest of friends + family and if you ask me, it was the perfect ending!

PS. Can we also give a big clap to that wedding party who trusted me in the pouring rain so I could get 2 minutes of party portraits? YOU DA BOMB. 

Hornberger Wedding // Pajama Factory - Williamsport, PA

Ashley and Michael have known each other their whole lives. Ashley has been best friends with Michael's sister for what seems like forever, so it was inevitable that the two started dating.  After 3 years of dating, they made it official when Michael proposed to her in Central Park.  The wedding was held in Williamsport and the couple was surrounded by so many of their loved ones.

Ashley wore a beautiful gown from Diamonds and Lace with lace capped sleeves. The bridesmaids wore a beautiful shade of deep red, the perfect color for a September wedding. The groom and his groomsmen wore slate grey with a pop of color in their boutonnières to match the bridesmaids’ bouquets.

The reception was held at the Pajama Factory and the room was tastefully decorated to fit their personalities and style. They went with their favorite pattern, marble! There was a beautiful pop of marble throughout the room. From the cake to the backdrop to even the table numbers, the colors and décor blended beautifully.  As the couple danced their first dance to Hold On by Michael Buble, you could feel the love in the room. The newlyweds and their guests danced and laughed the night away!

NYE Wedding // Central Pennsylvania Wedding Photographer// Melinda and Jay

Hello, long time no see friends! I've got another beautifully classic wedding *night* for you. Melinda and Jay's venue at the Williamsport Holiday Inn suited their style so well. 

Their wedding day was truly breathtaking and special. I met Melinda and Jay for the first time on their wedding day and they were such an inviting couple, ut makes me so happy to make instant friends! The uplighting provided by Kevin Head Entertainment truly helped set the mood for this occasion. All of the decor flowed so well to create the overall theme, romantic and timeless. 

The bride and grooms attire were both purchased at Tanya's. All the bride and bridesmaids hair and makeup were done by Danielle Barr + Beauty and the Blush. They looked flawless! Melinda couldn't stop raving at how amazing they all were to work with. 

We had a lot of fun taking wedding pictures, as well. They decided to not see each other until Melinda was walking down the aisle. The emotion I captured in Jay, was truly priceless! (make sure to see below)

It was such a pleasure getting to photograph them for their big day so let's get to the pictures! Mr. and Mrs. Rice were such a delight to work with and I wish them many wonderful years to come. 

Central Pennsylvania Wedding Photographer // Pine Barn Inn // Meghan + Ryan

The Moser wedding had a special place in my heart. From the time I met Meghan, I knew how in love and passionate she was about their relationship. The same with planning their wedding day. We chatted about details and plans and I knew it was going to be a wonderful, beautiful day for Meghan and Ryan. She told me about her gown from Cocoa Couture in Hershey, PA and the vision I had in my head didn't compare to its true beauty in person. Everything came together so perfectly, the florals by The Details Matter, tuxes from Tony's Tuxes and the exceptional cake + dessert bar from Bella's Bliss helped make their day one to remember. 

Their family is so kind and loving, everything combined made their day such a joy to photograph. They had a traditional Catholic ceremony at Saint Pius X that was full with their friends and family. Later, we headed down to Pine Barn Inn for their reception. An Elegant Production did a flawless job getting every one on the dance floor for a fun unforgettable night. We were able to end the night with a couple of night shots and that always seals the deal for me!
