Kelsie and Michael tied the knot on a lovely November day. Their wedding could not have been more gorgeous. After the ceremony they celebrated their reception at the Sycamore Spring Orchard in Jonestown, PA. They prioritized their family, friends, and each other on their wedding day and it was so beautiful to witness (and capture!) They are welcoming, friendly, and fun. Getting to know them has been such a blessing in my life! Kelsie & Michael- thank you SO much for your continuous love and support.
I was immediately intrigued by Kelsie and Michael's color of choice, black. Kelsie's bridesmaids wore STUNNING black dresses with matching flannels for the outdoor photos. The guys all looked sleek wearing nothing but black. The flowers were a beautiful shade of magenta designed by Amy Burkholder, a family friend. I also loved the fact that all of the girls rocked converse, while the guys wore vans.
Kelsie's dress was modern, and had a beautiful corset back. I loved photographing the bride's mother and maid of honor as they laced up her dress. Kelsie wore her grandmother's beautiful pearl necklace along with a long flowing veil.
There's one thing I have learned to appreciate, and that is a gorgeous church with high ceilings and tons of natural light for a wedding ceremony. This church was ideal in every way. I let my emotions get the best of me when Kelsie started walking down the isle and during the vows Kelsie & Michael wrote to one another. It was incredible to witness their love and the celebratory emotions
