Your wedding is for you

X9V6082 a Your wedding is for you

Your wedding is not for your parents. It’s not for your best friend, or best man. It’s not for your grandmother, though you may wear her jewelry or her veil. Your wedding is for you and your beloved, only. It may not feel like that, but it’s true.

As soon as you start planning a wedding everyone has their own idea of what’s best for you, what kind of food you should eat, what music should be played or what traditions you must include. But the only thing that matters is what you want. Your family’s expectations may be hard to navigate, but at the end of it all is a ceremony with you both standing together. The day should be a reflection of your values as a new family. Use the planning process to really figure out what’s important to you. Respectfully ignore the multitude of opinions and: wear a short dress, rent a photo booth, dance your first dance to a hip hop tune, ride off on an elephant, cut all your hair off the week before, get matching wedding tattoos, or hire a taco truck for dinner. It is your day and your memories matter more than anyone else’s.

An Appleford Estate Wedding – Blair & Joe

Blair and Joe are such a treat! They are so clearly completely in love with each other and loving their life together. We were fortunate enough to photograph their classic elegant wedding on the beautiful Appleford Estate outside of Philadelphia. Blair’s favorite flower, peonies were everywhere, and the sun did not disappoint. We had the best time rambling all over the grounds and shooting gorgeous pictures of them kissing on each other. We’re so happy for you two!

This is the bride’s room. I mean could it be any more Martha Stewart Weddings? Simply lovely!

Those raspberry dresses just popped in all that green. And those old-school tuxes? Swoon!

I feel like this is something out of a beautiful classic wedding that my grandmother would have attended. Simply timeless.

We’re convinced that Joe’s dad (and best man) is actually Marlon Brando. Look at that suave coolness!
