Emily and Bill were married on June 14th with a ceremony and reception at Riverdale Manor in Lancaster, PA. It was such an honor to be their wedding photographer at this summer wedding. Emily and Bill were so sweet, caring and loving—both toward each other and toward their guests. It was a joy to photograph this wedding.
Emily & Bill’s Riverdale Manor Wedding
Emily and Bill’s Riverdale Manor wedding day started out with beautiful weather. Emily and the ladies got ready and there were some very sweet emotional moments between the bride and the women in her life. When she was ready, she came down the stairs to do a first look with her father. It was such an emotionally charged moment, full of joy. As a father, photographing father-daughter first looks are especially sentimental for me. Emily and her father looked so happy.
Later, I set up a first look between Emily and Bill. I love the excitement on Bill’s face when he turns to see his bride. These two were so in love. Photographing a love like this reminds me why I love being a wedding photographer. (If you aren’t sure if a first look is right for you, make sure to read this blog post!)
Riverdale Manor is a gorgeous Lancaster wedding venue. With six sprawling acres of Conestoga riverfront, a restored farmhouse, and elegant terraces and balconies, this venue was a beautiful backdrop for their wedding day. Emily and Bill had a riverfront ceremony with majestic, old trees towering overhead, offering shade for their guests. After the ceremony, the reception took place in the well-appointed restored barn. Everything about this wedding day was the epitome of rustic elegance—from the morning getting ready all the way to the bride and groom’s sparkler exit.
Emily and Bill, thank you for allowing me to photograph this special day for you. It was such an honor to be the wedding photographer for your Riverdale Manor wedding and the start of your happily ever after!
