Grandview Vineyard Wedding | Beka & Derrick
Last weekend was my last Pennsylvania wedding for this season, and it was a GOOD one! Beka and Derrick’s Grandview vineyard wedding was full of florals and music and sweet family who helped bring the details together.
I had been watching the weather all week and it did NOT look good for Saturday. The outskirts of the hurricane rains were coming for Southeastern PA and I was fully expecting (and dreading) a windy downpour all day. I packed up all of my clear umbrellas and wished for the best. It turned out, the best happened! While it did rain twice that day during the reception, the weather was perfect for photos and for the outdoor ceremony, and the sun even shone for a good part of the afternoon. It was beautiful!
I’ve known Beka since we were teenagers…fun fact: we used to play violin together for weddings and special events! (Any of my PA friends remember The Silver Strings Duo? Haha! Good times.) Beka is a talented musician and has an eye for beauty in all areas of life. I envisioned her wedding having lots of beautiful music and flowers, two things she loves. I only met Derrick for the first time that morning, but I could see immediately that he is energetic and full of fun, and a real gentleman. I enjoyed photographing them together because they weren’t thinking about the camera, they were just enjoying being with each other! That kind of chemistry makes some pretty great photos!
Enough from me. Here are my favorites from Beka and Derrick’s Grandview Vineyard Wedding!
Loved this sweet first look!
These colors together were so fabulous!
Grandview has the prettiest cove in the woods for outdoor ceremonies. I’m so glad the weather allowed Beka and Derrick have their ceremony here..it looked magical!
A few bride and groom photos right after the ceremony in perfect afternoon light. Just several minutes after we came back to the reception, it POURED! Then a rainbow came out. Then, about an hour later, the same thing happened! That’s right, TWO rainbows at two separate times on this wedding day. I’d say that’s pretty cool.
And sparklers to send them off. What a pretty wedding day you had Derrick & Beka!! Congratulations!!
