When Dana and Mike reached out to me to be their wedding photographer for their June wedding, I was really pleased. These two are so in love, and their wedding at Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens was absolutely wonderful. Now that June is rolling around again, I’m happy to share the wedding pictures from their PA wedding here today.
Dana and Mike’s Stoltzfus Homestead Wedding
Dana and Mike are big hockey fans. In fact, they got engaged right on the ice at a skating rink. They even included hockey ticket stubs with their engagement pictures in their wedding invitation suite. I love when couples make sure to let their personalities shine through during their wedding planning! That’s part of why the Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens in Intercourse, PA is such an awesome choice for a wedding venue. It provides a gorgeous backdrop for couples to tell their love story.
The day began with the bride and groom getting ready with their friends and loved ones. Dana and her bridesmaids were all smiles as they got ready. Once Dana was ready, there was a touching moment with her father. It’s always an emotional moment when a father sees his little girl ready to walk down the aisle.
Meanwhile, Mike and his groomsmen were elsewhere on the property. They were relaxing together once they were ready, clearly excited about the day to come. There was so much laughter with these friends. You could tell everyone was happy to see Mike and Dana tie the knot!
Once they were ready, I set up a first look between the bride and groom. It was super sweet, watching them see each other for the first time. Dana quietly crept up behind Mike, and when he turned, the joy with which they embraced was tangible. The love these two share is so deep. The way they connect with every touch and every smile made my job as their wedding photographer easy. Their love was easy to document and beautiful to witness.
Stoltzfus Homestead & Gardens Wedding Photography
With its picturesque scenery, gorgeous landscaping and beautifully restored buildings, the Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens offers endless opportunities for wedding photos. We took pictures all around the beautiful property with the bride, groom and their loved ones. The greenery and rolling hills made for a beautiful backdrop for these formal wedding portraits. Dana and Mike chose to have their wedding ceremony in the Tobacco Barn. The way the light streamed in through the windows was simply magical. Ceremonies in the Tobacco Barn make for gorgeous light and airy pictures.
The reception was filled with even more personal touches. I loved how they had a custom hockey jersey printed for friends and family to sign! It was such a fun way to carry their love for hockey into their wedding day. Dana and Mike, happy anniversary! I am so thankful that you chose me to be your wedding photographer for your beautiful Stoltzfus Homestead wedding!
