Congratulations to Kristen + Brendan! This stylish New York couple came to Lancaster to tie the knot last November, and we had the pleasure of capturing their day on film! Our favorite moment of the day? The mother of the bride’s reaction when she saw her daughter for the first time.
Proposal story written by Kristen: “Brendan and I put a love lock on the Brooklyn Bridge early on in our relationship with our names on it (the Brooklyn Bridge is my favorite place in the city). Brendan proposed at sunset in October in Brooklyn Bridge Park.”
It’s hard to believe that Kristen + Brendan were our final wedding from our 2017 season. We couldn’t be more thankful for all the amazing couples who trusted us to capture such an important day in their lives, and we can’t wait for all that’s to come in 2018! Cheers!

Congratulations to Hannah + Kyle! Last October, we traveled all the way to Staten Island to capture this lovely couple’s big day. We hope you enjoy watching them tie the knot and dance the night away at the gorgeous Richmond County Country Club!
Proposal Story written by Hannah: “Back when we first started dating, Kyle and I told each other I love you for the first time while we were in Hoboken for St. Patrick’s Day. Since that day, Hoboken has always been pretty special to us. Kyle decided to surprise me one weekend with a mini-getaway to Hoboken to see my friends! We went to dinner that Saturday night, September 17th, 2016, and after dinner took a walk around the pier overlooking Manhattan. As we were looking out over the pier, Kyle says to me “There’s no better place to do this then the place we first fell in love.” As I turned around, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I couldn’t have said yes fast enough!”

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.”

Congratulations Jolene + Tommy! When we asked Tommy what he was most looking forward to on their wedding day, he said “seeing Jolene in her dress for the first time.” And when we asked Jolene, she said “walking down the aisle to see my future husband.” We’re so blessed to be able to capture their reactions during these moments on film. Enjoy a look into their stunning wedding at the John James Audubon Center!
Proposal story: Tommy proposed on the beach, while her brother hid in the dunes and captured candid pictures. Jolene thought they were walking upon someone else’s engagement setup before realizing it was actually setup for her!

Congratulations to Erin + Kyle! Their September wedding was held at the always gorgeous and lush Riverdale Manor. We hope you enjoy watching this fun loving couple dance the night away with their family and friends as much as we do!
Proposal story written by Erin: “There is a place by my dad’s house called Washington Rock that over looks Manhattan. When I was young, my dad would take me there and tell me you could see the whole world from Washington Rock. This has always been a special place to me. One Saturday I woke up and Kyle said we were going on an adventure. Luckily I fell asleep in the car so I was completely surprised when I woke up and we were at Washington Rock. We then walked outside to the rock and that is where Kyle asked me to marry him! It didn’t take very long, but I decided to say yes! :)”
