So much laughter.  In order to evoke the mood of Nina & Brendan’s big day I  must stress the presence of laughter.  And smiling.  Lots of it.   And hugs.  Quite a few of those.  From the getting ready pics  to the last dance, Nina, Brendan, their family and friends created such a fun, loving, and beautiful atmosphere that I didn’t want to leave!  I completely fell in love with this wonderful group!

 

Here are a few favorites to tell the story of their day.

 

You know I can’t resist an accessories shot:

 

 

Shoes by Liz Claiborne.

 

 

I just love the diaphanous airiness of Nina’s dress from Allure Bridals (purchased at Jon’s Bridals by Suzanne.)

 

 

I really wanted to catch the look in Nina’s Dad’s eyes when he first glimpsed her in her gown.  Here it is!

 

 

Nina, you are breathtaking.

 

 

See what I mean?  So much beautiful laughter!

 

 

We had initially planned on doing a first look.

 

 

…But then it started pouring rain…  so the first look turned out to be more of a rainy glance…

 

 

This wedding had some of the cutest kids with the greatest expressions I have EVER SEEN.  Exhibit A:

 

 

The Lehigh University Chapel has such a classic, old-world beauty:

 

 

Shoes!  How cute is the flower girl in the corner!  Her feet are so tiny!

 

 

Beautiful flowers, done by Mike Kohn at Patty’s Petals

 

 

Seriously, these kids were too much!

 

 

The reception was held at the  Riverview Country Club in Easton, PA.  I would shoot here any day of the week.  Not to mention the fact that the staff were wonderful and the food was delish!

 

 

As favors, Brendan & Nina gave out these charming Moravian Star ornaments.  The Moravian Star is a symbol found all over this region of Pennsylvania.

 

Let me also give a very special shout-out to Cakes by Angie who made, literally, the most delicious cupcakes I have ever tasted.

 

 

We headed out for some alone time shots…

 

 

But it started pouring on us so we ran back inside…

 

 

The sky cleared up again after a few minutes and left us with a beautiful, romantic light.

 

 

Alone time: take II.

 

 

Dear Nina and Brendan, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for choosing me to collect the memories of your wedding day-I wish you a married life full of the happiness, hugs and laughter that made your wedding day so special!
