We celebrated Mike and Abby a couple of weeks ago at their wedding at Our Lady of Grace Church with a reception at the DoubleTree Hotel in Greentree, PA. We knew right away we were going to have an amazing day since Mike had formerly worked in the wedding photography business himself and knew how to plan out a killer timeline. After spending the morning at the DoubleTree with both Abby and Mike getting ready, we all headed over to the church for the first look and portraits.
We had been watching the weather all week since it had looked like rain, but we ended up with just the right amount of cloud cover to make for gorgeous pre-wedding portraits. Abby wanted to do a first look with her dad (which we LOVE) and their moment together could not have been sweeter. Next was the first look with her groom-to-be! The second Mike turned around and saw Abby for the fist time it was magic. They were able to take a few minutes just to BE (and of course take some photos!) before it was time for their ceremony to begin. Our Lady of Grace Church has a beautiful, almost in-the-round style of ceremony space with lots of natural light, perfect for Mike and Abby’s vows.
Afterwards we headed out to the West End Overlook to try to stay ahead of the weather and accomplish some bridal party and couple’s portraits. We quickly got some fun shots of the wedding party with the sweeping views of the overlook in the background before the rain really started coming down. Mike and Abby were such an amazing, laid-back couple that they were up for waiting it out with us under a tree so that we could still capture some portraits of the two of them! We are SO GLAD they did because those are some of our favorite shots of the day! We wrapped up the evening at a beautiful reception at the DoubleTree Hotel in Greentree. The blue uplights matched with the bridesmaid dresses and the whole room came together in a perfect celebration of Mike and Abby’s wedding day. Thank you guys for letting us capture your wedding. Congratulations!!
