Jillian + Bobby | The Atrium at the Curtis Center

Congratulations to Jillian + Bobby! There are so many moments from this day that we can’t get over. From Jillian’s father’s reaction when he saw her for the first time (cue the tears), to the champagne pop with the wedding party, to the breathtaking reception venue and decor, Jillian + Bobby’s wedding day was absolute perfection!

Proposal story written by Jillian: “Bobby took me out for a nice dinner at a local Mexican restaurant that serves my favorite margaritas, he was so nervous that he let me go overboard and order a second which put me over the edge into party time mode, when we headed home I insisted we stop at the liquor store, little did I know our families were waiting patiently at our house for us to get home. Once Bobby was able to get me back home I saw my moms car in the driveway, who was supposed to be at work that night, so at that point I knew! He walked me out to our porch, got down on one knee, asked me to marry him and told me I could start planning for real now.. to which I gave him a punch/love tap “for letting me get a second drink” and quickly said yes. We then went in to celebrate with our families, after about an hour Bobby had arranged for my three best friends to come to the house (bringing them in from Long Island, DC, and even Florida as a surprise). The surprises continued with a surprise engagement party where about 65 of our closest friends and families got to celebrate with us at one of our favorite local bars.”

Melissa + Shane | Grimmel Farms

Melissa + Shane both come from farming and ranching backgrounds, and their wedding reflected this is the most stunning way. Set at Melissa’s family farm with Hereford cattle grazing in the pasture, guests traveled from across the country to witness this couple tie the knot. Melissa’s generous spirit and Shane’s kind nature were reflected in their choice of party favors: donations to the farmers and ranchers affected by wildfires out west. Our favorite parts of the day? The couple’s tractor ride and their two Australian Shepherds, Sage and Skye, walking down the isle in adorable flower collars!

Fun fact: We also had the pleasure of filming Melissa’s sister’s wedding a few years back! Watch it here: Michelle + Jacob.

Charlotte and Christopher celebrated their wedding day in historical Gettysburg, Pa.  Their ceremony was held at the Lutheran Theological Seminary Chapel. Both Charlotte and Christopher’s faces were beaming with smiles.  Their emotions were cheerful with laughs during special moments throughout the day. At the reception the couple let loose and had a blast showing off their unique dance moves! : )

Erica + James, Farm at Eagles Ridge | Lancaster

The cowboy gets the girl!

James and Erica celebrated their wedding at The Farm at Eagles Ridge.  The ceremony was held outside under a tall, heavily flourished tree. The isles were capped with silver buckets of white and burgundy flowers styled by the florist at Weddings by JDK.

After the ceremony, the reception took place inside the renovated barn- which is a perfect fit for a cowboy! Weddings by JDK decked out the barn with beautiful flower arrangements and table settings.  The event design was spectacular. The cake was positioned on a table that was suspended in the air! Erica and James were the life of the party!  They gathered the guests on the dance floor to line dance and show off their signature moves.

Congratulations Erica & James!

Fourth exciting small city in the country- Lancaster, Pa.

According to Businessinsider.com, Lancaster, Pennsylvania is the fourth exciting small city in the country! How awesome is that?

We love that our studio is located in downtown Lancaster.

You can visit shops, boutiques, and art galleries, during after hours on the First Friday of every month. At least once a week, we like to get out of the studio and walk to local cafes, like Cafe 1 Eight, or get a bite to eat at the Central Market. There’s tons of things to do in Lancaster!
