Bride and Groom portrait in greenhouse at Pleasantdale Chateau

A Spring Wedding at Pleasantdale Chateau I was super excited about Carlie and Nick’s wedding day. First of all, you couldn’t ask for a nicer, more considerate couple than these two. They even planned their wedding from the perspective of their guests, making sure that every decision catered to their loved ones to ensure a […]

ivory wedding details and pearls for this classic bride wedding at Fiddler's Elbow Country Club Spring wedding

Love & Marriage Love and marriage…go together like a horse and carriage. Yes, I’ve been singing this classic Frank Sinatra song over and over, ever since writing this title. However annoying that has been, I feel like it is definitely an appropriate title for Carolyn and Taylor’s wedding blog post. Why? Carolyn and Taylor’s reverend […]

Joyful Spring Wedding at Natirar Emily and Scott’s wedding was absolutely stunning! However, that’s not what makes this wedding day so magical. What did make it so magical? Let’s start with the fact that they both got each other two cards (and thought they were so clever!). Emily’s crinkle-nose when she smiles. The moment Dad […]

Spring Wedding at the Mansion at Natirar
Christmas wedding inspiration at the mansion at natirar

Christmas Bride at Natirar When I pulled up to Natirar for my very last wedding of 2018, I was greeted by the twinkling lights settled on the brick wall, leading up to the mansion. The front door was adorned with festive wreaths, and upon entering the marble foyer, a warm glow from the candles¬†and sprawling […]

A Beautiful, Blustery Fall Wedding Saturday greeted us with gorgeous light and glowing trees. I texted Laura, my bride, to wish her a happy wedding day and her response was “mind the wind!” No kidding! It was a super windy day in the 200 acre wood that makes up Natirar Park! It’s no secret that […]

Married at Natirar While I felt like I got to know Ali and Matt pretty well at their engagement session, I learned so much more about them on their wedding day! When I first walked into Natirar’s main hall, I saw all kinds of one-of-a-kind signs that Ali, the DIY Natirar bride that she is, […]

A Good Apple I feel like it was ages ago when I first spoke to Kristen and John about their Fall 2018 wedding at Natirar and their rehearsal dinner at Alstede’s in Chester. With John’s family coming from North Carolina, they wanted to welcome their guests with a casual country dinner that included apple picking […]

A Wedding Day Hunt It may not be customary for the bride and groom to see each other on the morning of their wedding, but I don’t know if a fox hunt is customary before the wedding either! However, seeing as Bart is the huntsman of the Essex Fox Hounds, how could they not?! I […]

Stacy, Fil & Roo say “I do” Before their adorable puppy Roo became the third wheel, Fil and Stacy’s history began circa late 90s when the only social media available required you to be anchored to a computer: AIM. So, naturally, this is how they exchanged information while at a middle school basketball game. This […]

classic summer natirar wedding with pet dog

A Summer Wedding at Fiddler’s Elbow Sometimes we don’t get a chance to do an engagement session, whether it’s because of lack of time or distance. I think Rebecca and David fell into both of those categories, but I was so thrilled that we at least got to meet over coffee in the spring. I […]

A Summer Wedding at Natirar How often do you get to work with your friends? I work with mine every day. I’m not just talking about my photo friends (who are amazing!), but also my brides! I am so fortunate to have incredible brides who share so much of their wedding process with me, and […]
