The day was still, peaceful. The sun shone down, spilling its light on the hills and valleys of this beautiful February day in Pennsylvania. Erin was preparing at her parents home to make a huge step with her incredible partner in crime, Alex. She has such a beautiful grace about her that completely matched the tone of the day- calm, peaceful and filled with beautiful light. After zipping into her wedding gown, Erin shared a moment with her mother, father and their family pup. As she descended the stairs of her childhood home, her bridesmaids were waiting and so incredibly excited to see their best friend ready to get married! These are the moments that a wedding day is built on. The moments of quiet anticipation, moments of closing one chapter and beginning a new one.
Alex and Erin opted for a beautiful church ceremony and were celebrated into married life with a beautiful streamer exit from the church! From there we headed to Swarthmore College for the two to have a quiet moment together an enjoy being husband and wife. They snuggled, held hands and soaked in this beautiful February day. When we arrived at Springfield Country Club, Erin and Alex headed out into the fields during golden hour to exchange some personal vows to each other. It was one of the most beautiful and touching moments. They expressed their love to each other as the sun faded behind them. What a beautiful way to cap off the day before heading in to celebrate with their friends and family. What an honor to capture these memories for Erin, Alex and their amazing families! We can’ wait to see what life brings them next!
