This snowy wedding! What a great way to kick off the 2019 season!

Clark & Anna got married last weekend on in a beautiful white church surrounded by their large family & fun bridal party, and the snow was the perfect backdrop.

I’ve known Clark all my life; we grew up in the same area. When I met Anna I thought right away “She is so perfect for him!” Clark is fun and outgoing, always up for a party. Anna is sweet, reserved, supportive. They compliment each other. I love shooting weddings where I know so many of the guests. It’s basically like a big family reunion!

Pennsylvania winters can be unpredictable. March can be warm & sunny, or you might get a snowstorm! I was watching the weather closely all week, and the forecast called for a rainy, cold day. But the day before the wedding it snowed! Not just a dusting, but a beautiful, heavy snow. I was so excited! Snow makes such pretty photos. The sun even came out for a few minutes at the end of the day, and we even shot a little bit in the sunset. It couldn’t have been better!

The details. I love Anna’s gown-so stunning! And I know I’m not the only person to obsess over her hair. Oh yeah, it’s all natural, even the curls. You’re beautiful, Anna!

Lots of fun with these crazy guys!

Don’t these girls look so classy?!

Pre-Ceremony moments…

Clarks face when he sees his bride, and Anna’s dad with his daughter. So sweet.

Husband and wife!!

My favorite part of the day….portraits with the Bride & Groom. So many sweet photos with these two; it was so hard to choose favorites!

Lovely reception details…

Clark & Anna read personal letters to each one in their bridal party at their entrance. Clark’s older brothers gave congratulations, not to their brother but to each other on getting their little brother married off! šŸ™‚

During the reception I looked outside and saw that the sun was coming out! We snuck out for a few sunset photos. I always try to get photos at golden hour at each wedding I shoot, but golden hour in the winter, with snow on the ground? SO STUNNING. Definitely my favorite photos of the day! Kind of makes you want to plan a snowy wedding doesn’t it šŸ™‚

Sparkler send off for the Bride & Groom!

 

Clark & Anna your day was so beautiful-I loved celebrating with both of you! You guys have such a sweet relationship and I’m excited to see what the future holds for you. Thanks for including me in your day!!

 

xoxo,
Jess
