It was a brisk March Saturday for Jessica and Jeremy’s wedding at the Hotel Du Village in New Hope.  Hotel Du Village is a beautiful french themed wedding venue.  I am all about french stuff currently, so we were really excited to start.  Jessica an Jeremy started off the day with a private moment between the two of them where they exchanged gifts.  After the exchange we ventured around taking some portraits of the two of them.  The indoor ceremony was perfect with Jeremey’s Aunt officiating the ceremony.  During cocktail hour we headed outside to wack open some pinatas.   The food we tried was delicious and the service was excellent.  Before the reception started we had a quick and private cutting of the cake.  Shortly after the reception go under way with some heartfelt speeches and the party started and continued on long after we left, I am sure.

Here is a glimpse into our first 2017 wedding.  If the rest of the year follows like this one, it is going to be a great 2017.

Candace & Andrew’s Wedding

Candace and Andrew’s wedding was on New Years Eve.  There was a layer of snow on the ground and it was the perfect winter day and the perfect way to end 2016.  The ceremony was at the Saint Teresa of Calcutta in Mahanoy City.  It was decorated for with a Christmas theme and was gorgeous.  Capriotti’s in Macadoo did a great job setting up their reception for over 250 people.   After a decade together they became husband and wife.  They are such a sweet couple and it we had a blast capturing their wedding day.  Here is a glimpse.

I second shot this wedding for jill Nobles of Smile Peace Love Creative.  I rarely second shoot and she is one of very few I would second shoot for nowadays.  The fact the Chris and Bridget are practically models, their wedding happened in a beautiful church and the sky was perfectly overcast really added some great elements to their day.  Here is a highlight of some images from their October wedding.
