Since the day Miranda and James met, it has been an exciting ride. I loved reading the answers to the questions I asked them…you can definitely tell they have a lively and devoted relationship! Our engagement sessions was awesome! We got some incredible photos, and laughed along the way. I’m looking forward to capturing this amazing couple’s wedding next year at Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens!
I had an awesome engagement session with these two! They are so much fun and are naturals in front of the camera! I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in just 3 weeks! Here’s a peek into their love story. We’ll be sharing the rest of it after the wedding, here, on the JM Journal!
From the day they started talking about getting married, Anna dreamed of a fall wedding. It’s her favorite time of year, and will make the perfect time to celebrate their anniversary for years to come. When they visited Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens, they knew this would be the perfect place for autumn to show off all of it’s gorgeous rich colors and perfect temperatures. They loved the beautiful history behind the hometstead and the rustic feel it gave them at first sight. Their wedding day was absolutely beautiful and fall was in all of it’s glory on their special day.
Katie was convinced that she would never find true love…until she met John. After just one date, she couldn’t stop smiling. And on that first date, John was already in love with her! Fast forward over 4 years later, and I was honored to photograph their gorgeous fall wedding at Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens.
Usually most of my blog posts are from the bride’s perspective. Today, I’m sharing one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever been a part of…from the groom’s perspective. Emily and Brandon are such a sweet and amazing couple! You can tell from his words and from the tenderhearted emotional look on Brandon’s face when he first sees Emily, that he’s truly a romantic and caring guy.
It was the moment he had been waiting for. He could sense her presence coming up behind him and could feel his heart beating out of his chest. He could hardly wait to turn around and see his bride-to-be. As he turned around, his breath was completely taken away. Meghan was absolutely stunning. All Tyler could think was, “Wow, how did in the world did I get so lucky?” As soon as they made eye contact, his nervousness went away and she was all he could see. The moments they shared were pure joy and happiness and felt like they were the only two people on earth. He was in awe of how incredible Meghan looked and was so thankful to have a few moments to focus completely on her. It was a moment Tyler will never forget.
If you saw Anne and Brandon’s engagement session on the blog, you know they’re an incredibly fun couple that are truly best friends and are so in love. Their wedding was amazing and I’ve been so excited to share it with you! They chose Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens as their venue. The gorgeous barns, beautiful […]
It was their junior year at Penn State University, and a group of friends was meeting at Panera for a reprieve from final exams. Andrew and Shaniece met that week and hit it off right away. Andrew thought she was beautiful and kind. He loved that she was so easy to talk to. Shaniece was wearing a shirt with bees printed on it, and since he finds honeybees fascinating, he was excited to talk to her about it. Shaniece was in a relationship at the time, but still noticed that Andrew was attractive and really funny. He was so outgoing and talking to him was effortless. It would be a year before they spoke again.
“I vow to be your ears, and make sure you hear the world.”
These are Sean’s words spoken in his vows to Ashley during their wedding ceremony. Needless to say, there were hardly any dry eyes in the whole place. Ashley is deaf, but from the photos and her pure radiant joy, you would never even know it. One of the things that made Sean fall in love with her was how she didn’t let her deafness affect the way she viewed or lived her life. His heartfelt vows are just one small part of the incredible day.
