Kenese and Omar had the Lodi Wedding at The Elan.  They had a lot of family and friends fly all the way in to celebrate their wedding day in Nj.  The day began with some portraits before heading over to the ceremony and reception site.  They had an intimate indoor ceremony followed by the reception celebration.  The day included 2 brides dresses and some beautiful purple colors for the bridal party and reception decor.  Here is a peek at their perfect September Wedding.

Kelly and Mike were married at the Scranton Country Club in Scranton.  The day was perfect.  The weather, decorations and Kelly and Mike could not have been any better.  Kelly got ready right at the Scranton Country Club with the ceremony outdoors and the cocktail hour and reception just steps away.  After the ceremony we headed out on a golf courts for some bride/groom portraits.  The reception raged on and the night was ended with a sparkler send off!

We first met Lindsay and Eric at their engagement session in Bucks County, at Tyler State Park.  We are lucky enough to be their wedding photographers for their destination wedding in Key West next July (we are excited)!  We started off with some shots of their beautiful dog Lola.  We got a beautiful golden hour and took advantage of the almost fall like sun.  These guys are so fun, which is going to make photographing their wedding even better.  Here is a peek from their engagement session.

Elizabeth and Ed’s laid back, elegant wedding at the Manufacturers Golf & Country Club was perfect.  With a hint of fall in the air, we still had the beautiful summer sun to enjoy.  The ceremony was held outside overlooking the rolling hills and golf course in Ft Washington, Pa.  We did the first look inside and then headed outside for some family portraits.  The ceremony began and ended with a solo guitarist, which just added to the ambiance of the evening.  The nights celebrations went on from there with cocktail hour on the back patio followed by the reception.  Here is a glimpse into Elizabeth and Ed’s wedding day.

Loved this ceremony location.
