Dixie and Luke's wedding day was special for so many reasons. One of those reasons being that it was the first wedding at the brand new Star Barn at Ironstone Ranch. Ironstone Ranch is known for being one of the premier wedding venues in the south central Pennsylvania area and they certainly didn't disappoint with The Star Barn. The weather was perfect. The people were amazing. The scenery was epic. It was everything that I hope a wedding will be and I was honored that Dixie and Luke trusted me to capture their special day!
When Julie and Alex told me about their wedding day vision, I knew it was going to be a classic yet unique Philly wedding that would be one for the record books. And it certainly lived up to and exceeded those expectations!
We started the day at the Hotel Monaco where both Julie and Alex got ready for the big day. Once everyone was ready, we made our way over to the Second National Bank where we did portraits of the wedding party. We then hopped on the trolley and rode over to Christ Church, a church founded in 1695, for the ceremony. Then, we went back to the Second National Bank for portraits with Julie and Alex with some amazing light. Finally, we made our way over to the stunning Ballroom at the Ben. It's truly a venue that leaves you speechless when you walk in!
The day was absolutely perfect from start to finish and I think the moments we captured certainly prove that point!
Waking up at 4 AM and driving over an hour isn't something that most people would be willing to do for sunrise pictures. However, Jamie is a photographer as well and thankfully convinced Keenan to do it. We were blessed with the most amazing sunrise that I've ever seen and we made the most of it while it lasted. The natural chemistry between these two certainly didn't hurt either. Nothing but smiles, laughs, and joking around throughout the entire morning. Stay tuned for more from these two when they get married in November!

Mother Nature couldn't make up it's mind on the day of Steph and Bobby's wedding but that didn't stop us (or them) from having a great time. It poured all morning and then the sun came out and melted us for a few hours before the sky became completely overcast and stormy again. Thankfully, the rain held off when we needed it to and Steph and Bobby's day went off without a hitch. There was so much genuine joy and laughter throughout the day and you could really feel the connections between everyone involved.
