We had a gorgeous day for Bryan and Emilies wedding this past Friday. Greendance winery was absolutely stunning! The weather was perfect, and the backdrops were even better.
These two are such a sweet couple, and we had a blast at their engagement session this past winter! You can check that out HERE. Fun fact about Bryan and Emilie… Emilie says, “The guy who never had a pet now shares 4 horses, 11 chickens and 2 dogs with me…. we have our own little “funny farm” as he would call it”. I love their story, and photographing their wedding day with all of their friends and family was so much fun.
We started the day at the hotel where the girls were getting ready. Emilie stepped into her dress, and we went outside for a few bridal portraits in front of a field of goldenrod. We went on our way to the winery, where the guys were waiting! We explored the grounds, which were so beautiful. Seriously, if you ever get the chance, you HAVE to check out Greendance winery in Mount Pleasant PA. Just lovely. The ceremony was canopied by trees, and had sheep in the field behind. Guests walked down the curving stone steps to the ceremony site, and sat on long wooden benches. After they exchanged vows and rings, they shared their first kiss, and made their way back up the steps.
We took family photos, bridal party photos, and photos of the bride and groom next. We found a really cool house on the property, with amazing landscaping that had a “English garden” feel to it! After portraits, they hopped back into their limo, and we made our way to the reception. They were greeted by all of their guests as the entered Bells Banquet in Mount Pleasant PA. Bells is beautifully decorated with chandeliers, warm wood walls, and lights throughout.
They had such a fun reception, and the DJ kept the evening moving along and played great music. I loved when Emilie shared a dance with her grandfather. With his declining health, it was incredibly difficult for him to even make it for their wedding day, so they shared this special moment together!
After LOTS of dancing, and the bridal dance, we said our goodbyes and headed home. We had a perfect day from start to finish, and I loved spending the day with these two and their friends and family.
Bryan and Emilie, thank you for including me on your wedding day, we had a blast! Cheers to many years of happiness together!
