Willow Creek Winery Wedding Photography

 What a fabulous way to end our 2020 Wedding Season!  This year as been unique, to say the least!  So, to show up to Rachel & John’s wedding, with the sun shining brightly and love all around, it was a dream come true!  Plus, we’ve been dying to capture a Willow Creek Winery Wedding, and so happy theirs was our first! Here’s a glimpse into the beginning of their happily ever after!

Timeless, Beautiful Details for a Classic Bride

As soon as I saw Rachel’s dress, I did a little happy dance!  Free Love Bridal carries some of the most beautiful dresses I’ve ever seen!  Add in her gorgeous bouquet from A Garden Party, the invitation and some small details, and it was perfect! This Willow Creek Winery wedding was off to a stunning start!

Rachel Getting Ready in The Rose Room at Willow Creek Winery

Walking into warmth and laughter on the morning of a wedding is always a great sign!  Even better is when they all sat in a circle and sang Girl Scout songs! SO much fun!

A First Look with Rachel & her Father

Rachel’s dad thinks that “little hands” are funny!  So, of course Rachel had to get some for her first look with her dad!  Plus, it broke the tension a little bit so that no one would cry!

John Getting Ready at The La Mer Beachfront Resort

John and his best friends all love to hunt!  So, they started out their day having fun on the beach in their hunting gear!  Then, they went back to the La Mer Resort to get ready for the day ahead!

The Story of Rachel & John

Rachel & John first met each other in Atlantic City.  She was having a girls night with one of her friends, when her friend noticed her cousin hanging out with a bachelor party.  They joined the party and John and Rachel met and danced that night!  The next day John reached out to her friend for Rachel’s number!  Their first date was actually at a wedding! (The wedding from the Bachelor party!)  John’s date got sick and bailed, so he asked Rachel!  They’ve been together ever since!

In April of 2019, John and Rachel went to the Poconos for the weekend for his birthday.  Little did she know what he had planned!  He had set up a gorgeous breakfast by the fireplace one morning at their AirBnB and asked her to marry him!

A First Look under the Willow Tree at Willow Creek Winery

Rachel knew she wanted John to see her for the first time underneath a Willow tree at the winery.  It was the most perfect spot, and John’s reaction was everything! This Willow Creek Winery wedding was sure to be one for the books!

So, Ryan and I bought a new toy – a drone! Yay!  We were so excited to try it out and get some more unique photos for our couples.  Leslie and Waleed were kind enough to let us use them to try it out, and I think we got some awesome shots!!  Hope you enjoy their Longport Engagement Photography!

The Story of Leslie & Waleed

Leslie and Waleed met one another during their freshman year of high school, and became friends.  It wasn’t until Junior year that they started dating, and you could say, the rest is history!  They were high school sweethearts whose relationship stayed strong throughout the years that followed!

Back in March, Leslie graduated from Nursing school, so it was time to celebrate!  Waleed was taking her out, but being a fisherman, he asked if she wouldn’t mind stopping in Longport to check out the tides.  While they were standing on the jetty, Waleed took Leslie by surprise and proposed to her! Of course her answer was yes!

We are beyond excited to capture their wedding at One Atlantic Events next year!  OA is one of our favorite venues that just screams beauty, elegance and excitement!

Longport Engagement Photography

What a better place for their engagement session than back in Longport where it all happened?!  This might be my new favorite spot, especially for couples who want a jetty and a pretty sunset!!  We really lucked out with the most perfect evening!

The Story of Renee & Ted

Thanks to a friend urging Ted to finally try online dating – he joined BUMBLE. The premise of Bumble is that if you both click that you “like” each other and you “match” – the women have to communicate first. With a “Hi Ted”, from Renee and a few corny jokes from Ted within a week they spoke on the phone and had their first date at Bar Lucca in Conshohocken. August 19, 2017 was the start of something great! From that moment on the fun dates filled with lots of laughs continued – including a trip to the US Open, Avalon, Old City and of course West Chester all within the first month.

On January 13th, 2019, Ted & Renee were vacationing with friends in Antigua. It was on this trip, that Ted got down on one knee by the oceanside and asked Renee to be his wife!

A Beautiful, Sentimental Ceremony at The Chapel at The Hill School

What a beautiful chapel to say your “I do’s” within! Reverend Gerry Davis created the most beautiful ceremony for Renee & Ted!  There were many tears along the way, but those smiles when they were finally announced as Mr & Mrs Rhinehart are everything!

A Fun, Glamorous Ballroom at Ellis Preserve Wedding Reception

Renee & Ted’s wedding was our first Ballroom at Ellis Preserve wedding!  However, since it is a Finley Catering venue, we knew it would be fabulous!  The venue was set up so perfectly for cocktail hour, and then a grand entrance into the reception room!  The warm, elegant details and bright florals surrounding the tables were breathtaking! BVT Live’s City Rhythm kept the guests dancing all night, and the jolly guy himself, Santa, even made an appearance!  We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for such a perfect couple!

A Fall Engagement Session at Batsto Village

A Fall Engagement Session at Batsto Village

What a perfect fall evening! The weather recently has really been either totally horrible or absolutely beautiful.  We totally lucked out and had a gorgeous evening for Brian & Allison’s Batsto Village Engagement Photography!

Brian & Allison’s Proposal

Brian and Allison’s love story began over 9 years ago when they both worked as lifeguards at the township pool!  Fast forward to this past Valentine’s Day, they were unable to celebrate because Allison was working a late shift.  So, Brian suggested they celebrate the following Tuesday, since they were both off.  Before they headed out, Brian gave Allison her gift.  She opened the gift to find a collage of their cats and it said “Will You Meowy Me?”  She then turned around to find Brian down on one knee with his camera set up, recording the whole thing!  Of course she said YES!  And Brian had their closest family and friends waiting at a local brewery to celebrate!!

Can’t wait for their wedding next year at Trump National! <3

Ryan and I first met Meredith & Travis only 4 days before their wedding.  Although we’ve been chatting and getting to know one another through email for almost a year, it was amazing to finally meet these two in person!  When we met, it was as if we’ve known them for years!  This meeting made us just that much more excited for their wedding day, where we were greeted with hugs and smiles!  We felt more like friends than hired vendors throughout the day, and that is just priceless!  We love you both so much Meredith & Travis, and we were honored to capture your Stone Harbor Yacht Club Wedding! xo

What a beautiful, bright, modern house to get ready in!  The decor was just perfect!  Meredith and her girls had a chill, fun morning in their “bikini” shirts, before it was time to officially get dressed!  Have I told you lately how much I love Father-daughter first looks?! This might be my favorite thus far!  Her dad’s reaction to seeing her for the first time was the sweetest!
