Alexis + Sam — Barn Wedding, Indiana, PA

“Barn wedding” doesn’t really do this venue justice, but I try to keep the titles short. The barn that Alexis and Sam were married in is over 100 years old, on her family’s farm, and was recently restored to the beautiful site that it is now. Alexis’s whole family and many friends helped with the restoration, making it that much more special.

Coincidently, my husband was one of the subcontractors who helped with the restoration. He had mentioned this project to me and said that the barn was being restored for a wedding…and that he would drop my name to Alexis as a possible photographer. Well, Alexis is much more organized and quick-moving than my sweet husband, so she actually reached out to me before Forrest had a chance to talk to her without knowing the connection. It was meant to be!:)

For such a special venue, I wanted to make sure extra special pictures were taken, so I hired RS Aerial Photography to shoot aerial photographs with a drone during the evening. He got some amazingly gorgeous views of the barn.

Congratulations to Alexis and Sam!

Chris + Bethany — Vandergrift Wedding — Apollo, PA Photographer

The first time I met Bethany was at my own wedding over 5 years ago. Chris, my brother, brought her as a guest, and although I didn’t get to spend a lot of time getting to know her that night, when I later looked back at the pictures, her warm smile amid the chaos of my wedding told me she was a sweet girl and we’d keep her. 🙂

The more I’ve grown to know her over the years, the more I become convinced that she is the perfect match for my brother and I couldn’t be more excited to call her a sister. Now go make babies. J/k 🙂 Continue reading → Chris + Bethany — Vandergrift Wedding — Apollo, PA Photographer
