It was a perfect day for a wedding. I had so much fun hanging out with these two and their families. Brooke is beautiful inside and out. Matt is so handsome and calm as a cucumber. Along with their beautiful friends and family it made capturing moments a breeze.
One of my favorite moments was when Matt and Brooke met in the garden. Matt arrived first with his back to Brooke. Then Brooke arrived in the garden being guided so she didn't see Matt. Once they were back to back they each were handed a letter written from each other. The pictures tell the rest of the story...
Brooke and Matt are planning their BIG Wedding next year on July 1, 2017. For various reasons, they did not want to wait that long, so they decided to have a small ceremony one year in advance. When I was first contacted by Pattie (the mother of the groom and a friend of mine), the wedding was to be held in the courthouse. They wanted me to capture the courthouse nuptials. As in many cases, one thing leads to another, and the ceremony was changed from the courthouse to the Adams County winery with 40 close family and friends. It was a lovely intimate ceremony on the patio just below the vineyards where Matt proposed to Brooke. (In one of the pictures, you will see the officiant pointing to the vineyards.) I wish Brooke and Matt many years of love and happiness.
The ceremony took place on the Patio at the Adams County Winery in Orrtanna, Pennsylvania
