Holiday Cheer | Gretchen & Ron's Peddler's Village Engagement Portraits

  Winter engagement portrait at Peddlers Village in New Hope, PA

This post is very overdue, but there was just so much I loved about Gretchen and Ron's engagement portraits in Peddler's Village just after Christmas last year, that I couldn't pass up sharing them.  First, how perfect is her vintage fur coat?  It was passed down from one of Gretchen's relatives, but it fit perfectly and coordinated ideally with her boots.  The whole atmosphere at Peddler's Village, which is located in Bucks County near New Hope, just fit perfectly with Gretchen and Ron's ideas for their engagement photos.  This little collection of gift shops housed in colonial-style buildings with paths and gardens between them goes all-out for the holiday season. The whole village is lit with Christmas lights and holiday music wafts through the air.  It's hard not to be in good mood!

We met up with Gretchen and Ron about an hour before sunset to get some vintage-style portraits among the colonial architecture, then we warmed up at one of the restaurants while waiting for it to get dark enough for some shots with the Christmas lights.  I'm so glad that Gretchen even got her wish to have some snow on the ground for the photos!

After the sun finished setting Gretchen opted for an outfit change for a more modern, classic look. All these cozy winter photos were such a nice contrast to their June wedding portraits!Portraits with Peddlers Village holiday decorations and snow in New Hope, PA
