Weddings: Whimsy in Lancaster PA, Lauxmont Farms

A note from the Photographers:

Blogging season has returned and we’re so excited to share lots of weddings from 2014 with you guys. We know you guys want to see more images from us and thank you for your patience while we worked through the wedding season to give our clients their images. 2014 was amazing on so many levels, probably one of our best years yet. We hope you enjoy!

Cheers, John + Kimberly

Today is the coldest day so far this winter in my little slice of the planet.  If you’re feeling any chill in the air, you’ll want to grab a blanket, some hot chocolate with marshmallows and cozy up to some beautiful Sanderson Images weddings — guaranteed to fight the winter cold and give you all the warm fuzzies!  Especially this fete at Lauxmont Farms in Lancaster, PA.  Sheri and Nicholas described their wedding as a summery, whimsical vintage wedding — sentiments that I think perfectly capture the beauty and love of their special day.

Shall we?

I love these shots of Sheri!  I’m espeically obsessed with her wedding dress — that half skirt underneath the gown is brilliant!  Gorgeous yet functional! {for the all the dancing and fun later!}

I love a happy dude in a bow tie.  Nicholas certainly does not disappoint!

I love this next shot for two reasons.  First, there is nothing better than a groom seeing the bride for the first time.  Second, I love that the priest is definitely like hold up, homegirl looks amazing — let’s all agree on that.

When I first looked at these portraits my first thought was thank GOODNESS I don’t have to pick the perfect shots to go in the album because they are all perfect and the album would be eight million pages.

Sheri and Nicholas describe their style as classic and outdoorsy.  They love to hike, golf and be outside together.  They tied their love of all things outdoors with perfect refinement in their reception decor.

OMG.  The more outdoor functions with classy couches at them, the better, am I right?

Sheri and Nicholas described their relationship as fun — they like acting like kids together.  They also echoed the desire for their guests to have as much fun as possible on their special day — I think they nailed it.
