Weddings: Cork Factory Hotel, Lancaster, PA

Weddings are exactly the way to start the week. Especially weddings where I feel like everyone had the best time ever, because really, aren’t we all just about celebrating love with the people that mean the most to us?  Yes, yes we are.  Laura and Tim’s big day, seemed EXACTLY that — a huge celebration of their love surrounded by the people that mean the most to them in the world.  But as with any good wedding, first we have got to get betrothed!  What better place to highlight true love than the Strasburg Railroad?

When asked to describe their couple-hood Laura said, “We like things that are handmade and antique, wooden, slightly old fashioned,” and as such I was delighted to see these adorable engagement  photos!

Alright, on with the big day!  Laura got ready at her parents house and I absolutely adore how cozy and familiar these getting read pics are.  What a treasure!

Getting ready with Grandma, especially the lipstick and the brooch, were special touches that Laura and Tim incorporated all day.

Laura arranged all the flowers for the big day herself (!!!) and I love the capture of Tim doing his part with the boutonnieres!  Well done all around!

I’m a huge proponent of the first look.  Not only do you get to see your favorite person ever and hug and smooch them, it can calm the nerves and bonus — amazing, adorable pictures result.

As a woman who had a great bridal party clad in navy I’m kind of biased, but these pictures are just amazing.  Those bouquets are to die for against the navy and their friends and family can strike a pose like it is their J-O-B!

I love the ring bearer and flower girls in these pictures.  So reminiscent of Wills and Kate’s homegirls.  Well played. Cork_Factory_Hotel_Wedding_Lancaster_PA_Sanderson_Images_Photographers037

Laura and Tim – you two are too wonderful for words (which is ironic, because I’m writing about you!).  Days captured like this just ooze with love and emotions of all kinds.  What a perfect way to start a wonderful life together!
