Matt & Andrea were married and celebrated their special day at the Chester County Historical Society. The wedding was incredible down to the very last detail. Andrea took the Eagles sports theme and put an elegant twist on it. Every detail left you breathless. From the decor to the outfits to the food. These are just a few of my favorites. I saved some of my other favorites along with the family portraits for the ordering session, but wanted to give her a good preview. Nothing better than a private first look. I love getting to see the groom and bride take a moment alone to see each other for the first time. Bella wasn’t at the ceremony or reception, but was a huge part of their special day. We got some great shots of her and can’t wait to share them with her mom and dad. Team Sibley! The wedding wouldn’t have been complete without the Eagles Green Dodge Charger Stretch Limo. Matt’s brother Frank wins the award for best dressed! The shoes are to die for. The ballroom was transformed… The incredible dog house created by a shop on Etsy to look exactly like Bella. Cards were placed inside by guest entering the ballroom. The cake by Cakes and Candies by Maryellen. The surprise Eagles Ice Sculpture thanks to Frank from Limoncello in West Chester. It overflowed with shrimp and crab. The Happy Couple introduced by sports announcer Merrill Reece. Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Sib for trusting us to capture your special day.
On Friday I had the honor of photographing an amazing couple on a very special day. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer day in June. The weather was perfect and so was the company. Here are a few of my favorites from the big day. The groom gave his guys some really fun cuff links. They are too cool not to share.Andrea and Dave didn’t want to do a sneak peak, but they wanted to exchange letters in the chapel before their ceremony. So we snuck off to make that happen. The Let’s Dance Orchestra was incredible. I highly recommend them. We snuck up to the honeymoon sweet to get some bridals. And ended the night with some fabulous speeches. The thank you gifts for attending the wedding were definitely a favorite. They gave all their guests gourmet coffee.Thank you to my amazing team for another successful wedding and of course to Andrea and Dave for allowing us to capture their special day.
I had the honor of photographing one of our own. Mrs. Moll works for KGP and also happens to be my brother and sisters cousin (try and figure that one out). She is my right hand when it comes to photographing weddings. This time it was her turn to be in front of the camera. It was a wonderful day surrounded by family and friends with a really fun Mardi Gras Theme.I can not recommend first looks enough. It gives you an opportunity to take a break from the craziness of the day and spend some quiet time with the one you are going to marry. It is also a great opportunity to get your pictures done prior to the wedding. Allowing you more time to enjoy the party with your friends and family. The handsome groom. The beautiful bride. The adorable flower girl.The “Cash Man” – HA. P wanted to be a part of the wedding and wanted to wear a tux so his Aunt (the bride) put him in charge of giving the vendors their money. He also was on top of all the details. He was the go to man for this wedding. Taking after his Aunt Kel already.The hall was beautifully decorated down to every single detail of their Mardi Gras themed reception.The cigar bar was a hit. The guys and gals were hitting it up all night.And of course Mr. and Mrs. Moll right walking down the aisle for the first time as husband and wife.Congrats again to Mike, Kelly and Madison on their special day. We are honored to be a part of the big day and hope you enjoy your sneak peak.
This was a very special wedding that I had the honor of photographing. I have known Christina since she was a little girl. Her Gama and my mom have been friends for over 30 years. Her family has been near and dear to my heart for a long time. I am honored to have photographed this special day between Todd and Christina. Enjoy your sneak peak guys.Seriously their daughter was the flower girl and she took her job to hear. She was throwing those flowers as she walked down the aisle. Todd seeing his bride for the first time. And Gama seeing her beautiful grand daughter walked down the aisle by two of her sons, two of Christina’s uncles. These two were such naturals in front of the camera. Loved their connection. Addison and her daddy Todd as she called him! The beautiful family together. They were totally into getting some fun shots. I love when the couple brings fun ideas to their pictures. Uncle Bill with the bride and groom. He wasn’t feeling very well so he watched everything from the sun room. Are these not the coolest Fall decorations. I loved them. Todd and Christina it was a pleasure working with you and I can’t wait to share all the images from your day with you.
I wanted to meet some vendors in my area and build a relationship with them. I want to learn a bit more about them, take a peek into what they do, and of course share it with my clients.
