Tyler Arboretum Romantic Outdoor Wedding | Media PA Wedding Photographer | Megan and James

Megan and James were married at the gorgeous Tyler Arboretum in Media, Pennsylvania this past June.  They could not have asked for a more perfect day.  The sun was shining and the entire arboretum was in bloom!  Each couple that I meet is so different in their own special ways, and what struck me about Megan and James was how incredibly kind and genuine they both are.  Their deep consideration of each other and for the people in their lives was so present throughout the day.  There wasn’t a moment that slipped by without gratitude.  It was evident how thankful they both were that this joyous day had finally arrived.

One of the most amazing moments of the entire day was their ceremony.  It was thoughtful and deeply personal with some beautiful readings from dear friends.  Megan and James wrote their own vows and exchanged their hearts promises under the shade of the beautiful magnolia trees.  They sealed their vows with a kiss and made their way back down the aisle where they were greeted by friends and family.  After taking a quick moment for themselves to celebrate being husband and wife, Megan and James made their way to the amazing cocktail hour provided by Jeffrey A. Miller Catering!  They even had mini cheeseburgers!  Cocktail hour flew by with amazing food, signature cocktails and beer brewed by the groom’s father!  They even had some awesome lawn games!

Megan and James were welcomed into their reception and showed off their dancing skills!  They celebrated with friends and family as they started this amazing new chapter together.  It was such an honor to capture these memories for you, Megan and James!  Can’t wait to see what life holds for you!
