Summer weddings at Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens are always a highlight. With so much beautiful scenery and outdoor activities, there’s something for everyone. Megan and Ty’s wedding was an incredible experience for everyone who attended, and I was honored to be a part of it.
You may remember from the the engagement blog last year, that Michaela and Kyle met in a leadership class but didn’t really connect until they were both at a Philadelphia Eagles game. Kyle couldn’t believe how gorgeous, kind and confident Michaela was….add to that, she was a die-hard Philly fan, and he had found the perfect girl! Michaela thought Kyle was handsome right away and loved how we could walk into any room or situation and get to know people really well. It didn’t take long for them to become exclusive and on a beautiful day last year, Kyle asked Michaela to spend forever with him.
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.
“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.
It was just one month before they were to be married when James and Melissa contacted me about photographing their wedding. Despite my busy summer schedule, I happened to have their date free! I’m so glad I was available to capture this amazing couple’s special day! Besides their previous photographer canceling, their hotel also closed, and they had to shorten their guest list by over half of the original expected attendees. They had already changed their wedding date because of COVID, now they had to scramble to get everything re-planned. They were overwhelmed. The tears, discussions, frustrations, and fears, felt at times, unsurmountable. Melissa was starting her first year as a principal and could not imagine postponing her wedding for a whole year. Who knew if next year’s situation would be any different? They took a risk to move forward with their plan, and are so glad they did. With Ben Reeder Photography providing a live stream experience for their guests watching from home, James and Melissa felt like they could go on with their planned festivities. I’m so glad they did… it was an incredible day!
If you’ve ever imagined a fairy tale wedding with a beautiful princess and a handsome prince, then you can envision exactly what we saw on the day of Danielle and Jacob’s wedding. In her stunning Hayley Paige gown, Danielle was the picture of loveliness, and Jacob looked as if he came right off the page of your favorite fairy tale romance. The whole day was incredible. The weather was perfect…warm and sunshiney for an October day. One of the sweetest couple’s I’ve ever met, Danielle and Jacob were so kind and appreciative.

Every girl dreams of two things with her father on her wedding day: when he walks her down the aisle, and when they have their father/daughter dance. Since she was a little girl, Amy and her dad had talked about it many times, but two years before her wedding, many thought that dream wouldn’t come […]
