Chelsea and Ryan picked a gorgeous site for their wedding; Aldie Mansion, in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. I really enjoyed photographing them, they were into trying new things and full of energy and smiles and had so many great background choices. This carried over into their reception where there was lots of dancing and a few crazy moves, including human bowling and grizzly growls!
John and Jess picked a beautiful location to get married, I love bamboo and historic sites, and The Old Mill in Rose Valley, Pennsylvania, had both.
Erin and Bill’s ceremony was held at Brandywine Battlefield and then they celebrated at the Brandywine Picnic Area. They had to move the ceremony inside because of rain, but that just made it more intimate, and more fitting for a member of the calvary to get married in George Washington’s headquarters at the battlefield. Being inside also made the ceremony more intimate and heartwarming, everybody was in tears, including me, as the couple said their vows.
After the ceremony, the rain stopped, they dressed down, and then moved to the picnic area to celebrate with champagne, bbq, and picnic games.
Dat and Miranda held a small ceremony at their house, which included their dog! I love small ceremonies because they are more relaxed and intimate, really allowing the personalities and love to show (and pets to attend). It also gave Dat and Miranda some breathing room before their huge reception in China Town at Joy Tsin Lau.
At their reception, I enjoyed traditional table toasts where Dat and Miranda greeted each table, and the karaoke!
I also appreciated Dat and Miranda’s hospitality and the food (fried duck)!
