S & J {wedding}

Remember Sarah and Justin? The couple that did their engagement session with their awesome horses!?!?!?  You can check out that blog post here. Their wedding was just as amazing as their engagement session. You could tell how much they adored each other and all the details seemed to fall into place.

Justin and Sarah first met through a mutual friend.  She would come into Sarah's salon and talk about her husbands best friend and how he would be perfect for her.  Of course, Sarah was hesitant about the thought of a blind date so she put it off for months.  Determined not to get her hopes up, they met up - and she could instantly tell he was different from all the rest.

So many people say when you meet the right person, you just know.  And that is the truth! We dated a little less than a year before getting engaged on Sept 6th, 2016. I couldn’t wait to marry him. We planned the date of July 1, 2017.  I liked that the date read the same frontwards and backwards  (7117). I’m weird like that, I like patterns.  Haha
— Sarah

 

The Details:

Venue: Laurel Rock Farm

"We chose Laurel Rock Farm for our wedding and reception because of the beauty and privacy of the property.  I've always pictured my wedding to be in a beautiful barn setting."

Flowers:  Pamela's Flowers in Enola - they were absolutely gorgeous. 

Sarah's dad made flower boxes out of reclaimed barn wood for each of the tables' centerpieces.

 

 

 

 

Cake: A client of Sarah's made six different kinds of Whoopie Pies for everyone to choose from and they were delicious.  Of course, I had to take one of each for photo purposes ;) 

DJ: Mac2Productions. He kept the day moving smoothly and did a great job.  

"Honestly everything went so well.  Aside from being hotter than we hoped, the day was perfect.  I loved my dress, my hair, and my makeup, but my favorite part was marrying the man of my dreams. We live in Dauphin now with our three dogs, but hope to find our forever home soon where my two horses can be with us.  I've accomplished so much in my 30 something years but feel like my life is just starting. Can't wait to see where our journey takes us next." - Sarah

Lessons From Abroad

Lessons From Abroad

If I could toss all caution to the wind, and spend the rest of my life in a constant state of wanderlust, I would. In a heartbeat.  I love to travel - for work or pleasure. Living abroad and international travel have taught me so many valuable lessons about everyday life and the way I view the world. 

Traveling has given me an enhanced cultural awareness and a sensitivity to various cultures and customs. It has schooled me in the art of sensitivity - being able to recognize where people have come from or what they may be currently experiencing. 

Traveling has enhanced my ability to recognize body language and non-verbal communication skills.

It has taught me the importance of adaptability and flexibility; the importance of organization; the importance of resourcefulness.

Adventuring has taught me the necessity of stress management and has compelled me to learn the value of a healthy sense of humor.

The bottom line is this: traveling has the ability to leave us speechless - but it also has the incredible power to turn us into story-tellers. My international experiences have taught me an extraordinary amount in regards to my role as a photographer and story-teller, equipping me to be more confident in my ability to hold life still in timeless images.

Every time I pick up my camera, whether it's to take images at your wedding, at a lifestyle session with you and your family, or just for fun, my goal is always to preserve moments and experiences in an attempt to describe the world the way I see it.

I SEE SOMETHING SPECIAL AND SHOW IT TO THE CAMERA. THE MOMENT IS HELD UNTIL SOMEONE SEES IT. THEN IT IS THEIRS.
