Hola love lovers!  June is one of the best months to have weddings, go to weddings and gush about them.  Allow gush-fest 2015 to begin with Amanda and Chris.  They were wed at Lilly Manor on a perfect September day.  So, grab your favorite summer cocktail and a piece of tasty cake and let’s settle into this intimate, beautiful day.

Amanda and Chris purposefully planned a day focused on what’s most important — their family and friends. From the bride: “Our wedding is all about celebrating with our closest friends and family. We are hoping to make lots of memories [on the big day].”

Beautiful bride alert!

When asked what her favorite things are about Chris Amanda said “He never fails to impress me, always exceeding my expectations, his integrity, he gives the best hugs!” And Amanda, you forgot how great he cleans up! 🙂

One of my favorite things about John and Kimberly’s style of photography are the beautiful bride and groom portraits they capture. Some of my most cherished photos from our big day are the ones of MB, just him and his cute tux. Just the best.
A lot of people ask me what the most important thing (other than my darling husband) was from our wedding.  Aside from all the feelings, it has been the photos — the one tangible thing I have to hold onto.  I’m so happy to see that Amanda and Chris have these beautiful shots of how happy — and stunning — they and their friends looked that day. weddings

Oh brides!  Best idea ever!  Make sure someone brings an invite so you remember those long labored hours spent on the computer picking fonts and paper weights! weddings

Chris and Amanda were married at the gorgeous Lily Manor in Mifflin PA. weddings
Chris could not look happier that Amanda met him at the end of the aisle! weddings

Amanda and Chris had a very personal, touching ceremony which included a ring warming.  From Amanda:  We are doing a ring warming ceremony where the rings will be passed to all the guests during the ceremony, and they will “warm” them will their love and prayers”. weddings

Hooray!  They DO!

Ceremony and Reception (including catering and that tasty cake!) — Lily Manor, Mifflin, PA

DJ — Mark Hoover

 

The big game is over (congrats, Patriots fans) but that doesn’t mean we can’t introduce you to Megan and her new husband Josh who plays NFL football.  Since he doesn’t play for the Steelers I’m not the biggest fan but he does take some pretty great pics with his lady so we’ll have to let it slide :).  Weddings are always best when couples look like they are completely bonkers for each other — which is obviously what’s going on in these pics.  First, engagement!  Then onto one of my favorite outdoor weddings!

I love a first look!  Look at how excited Megan is!  The couple told John and Kim that this was the important part of their day, seeing each other for the first time.

I could not have read my own vows on my wedding day — mad props to couples that do!  Josh and Megan took it a step further by exchanging personal vow privately and then sending them up during the ceremony in a sky lantern.  How romantic.
