In August of last year, I had the immense pleasure of photographing Tim and Lindsay’s Stolzfus Homestead & Garden wedding in Intercourse, PA. I was floored with how beautiful the shots came out! Tim and Lindsay are such a beautiful couple and I’m so glad I got to be the photographer for their wedding!
Stolzfus Homestead & Gardens
I absolutely love Stolzfus Homestead & Gardens! I’ve shot here before and every time I do, it’s always a wonderful experience.
The property was purchased all the way back in the 1700’s by homesteaders looking to put down roots, farm their land and raise their families. There are two gorgeous barns on the property, both having been built about 100 years apart—the Grand Barn in the 1800’s and the Tobacco Barn in the 1900’s. The homesteaders put wonderful craftsmanship into the barns and they really are an amazing sight to see.
A lot has changed at the homestead, but the charm still remains. In 2014, Stolzfus Homestead & Gardens opened back up for business and business has been booming! Couples come from all over to tie the knot. The two barns now serve as gorgeous wedding venue spaces, each one with it’s own unique flair.
Tim + Lindsay’s Beautiful Summer Homestead Wedding
Tim and Lindsay are a super sweet couple. They both love the outdoors, so Stolzfus Homestead was the perfect venue for their wedding. The lush green fields and rustic venue spaces really set off the atmosphere they were looking for in their wedding.
When these two saw each other for the first time on the day of the wedding, it was pure magic! You could feel the love just explode into the air. They both looked amazing and words can’t describe how excited they were to begin their lives with one another as husband and wife.
And let’s not forget about the PUPPIES! The moms of the bride and groom wanted to be sure to include their little canine companions. The pups were walked down the aisle with the rest of the wedding party and I thought that was such a special touch.
We got some amazing shots as the sun went down. Stolzfus has a beautiful little corn crib on the property, complete with twinkle lights for night images and it was absolutely perfect! I loved the sunset and nighttime shots, especially of Tim lifting Lindsay up into the air.
In the end though, this couple does a great job of lifting each other up. From the first moment I met them, I knew they were the kind of couple that just completes one another.
I’d like to thank them for allowing me the chance to photograph their beautiful Summer homestead wedding. It was a true joy to spend the day with these two and their families.
And I’d also like to thank Stolzfus Homestead & Gardens for being the amazing venue that they are. If you’re in the process of planning a wedding, I sincerely recommend you check out what Stolzfus Homestead & Gardens has to offer. You won’t be disappointed.
