With the Fall weather rolling in (sort of) I wanted to dip back and show off one of the weddings from a few years ago that we never shared. It just so happens (or was it completely intentional?) that today is also Kevin and Loren's fourth anniversary!

These two were actually the third wedding we a part of for the Vallery Family. First we had the pleasure of photographing Shannon and Brian's wedding during the Running with the Santa's and then were asked back for Kelly and Shamus's wedding on the beach!  With those two in our pocket, Loren and Kevin asked us to document their wedding as well!

To say that each wedding in this family was unique would be an understatement. One had a Christmas-themed wedding complete with hundreds of drunken Santas while the other was a beautiful beach wedding in New Jersey. So we had high hopes for this one.

They did NOT disappoint.

Their day included a ceremony in a private barn, wedding portraits in a corn field, a wedding slogan sewn in to Kevin's brown suit ('It's All Happening'), a bee-themed wedding cake and the most epic dance-off I have EVER SEEN! I can still distinctly remember forgetting to take pictures of the dance-off because I was so enthralled.

Enjoy!

Philadelphia Wedding Photography | Marie & Edwin's Stoltzfus Homestead Wedding

* Posted by Theresa *

Marie and Edwin could not have picked a better day for their Lancaster wedding at Stoltzfus Homestead. Not only was the day fantastic, but their venue was a perfect setting!

Both Marie and Edwin got ready at Stoltzfus with their respective bridal parties, while we took special precautions to make sure the two groups did not sneak any peeks at the other while out taking portraits!

Marie's beautiful lace wedding dress looked perfect next to her pink lace bridesmaids' dresses. Marie wore her "something blue" high heels, while her bridesmaids  wore cowboy boots. Edwin and his groomsmen added their own touch of personality to their grey tuxes with superhero socks!

The two said their "I do's" during a traditional Catholic ceremony at St. Joseph's Church in Lancaster, PA.

After heading back to the reception at Stoltzfus Homestead as official newlyweds, the two kicked off the evening with some lawn games and appetizers outside, before asking their guests to head into the barn for the party to start!

Their reception was one of the most fun we have been to! Their families and friends held nothing back on the dance floor of the Stoltzfus Grand Barn, and made for some great photos.

The newlyweds also had an assortment of cupcakes as a dessert for their guests, and s'mores kits outside by the fire pit.

When the night was just about done, Marie and Edwin made a sparkler exit using heart-shaped sparklers! They definitely know how to make an exit!

Congratulations, Marie and Edwin!
