Jason and Karlee | Spring Wedding | The Cork Factory Hotel

2016-08-19

I had the sheer pleasure of photographing Jason and Karlee’s wedding this past March 26th, 2016. I’m going to share something very tender and real with you. This past May, Karlee lost her father to his long battle with a fatal illness. Two months after their wedding. My heart absolutely breaks for Karlee and her family with this loss. Something that hit me so hard about this is the weight and importance of why I am a photographer. Why I capture those special moments between a father and his daughter on her wedding day. The smile he wore from ear to ear, the joy he felt walking her down the aisle and the inexplainable love they shared dancing the night away together. Two months later, little did I know those moments in time that I had the honor of capturing will now be savored in place of the actual presence of such an amazing man.

This why I am passionate about capturing standstill pieces in time. This is why I am passionate and thrive off of photography: irreplaceable moments, touches, gazes, love, and relationships. Jason and Karlee, thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to document these moments for you. You’re truly a beautiful couple. You create such kindness in the air around you.

Though there are moments filled with grief for the loss of those we love, there are moments filled with pure joy for the new life coming. This Summer Jason and Karlee announced they’re expecting their first child this December! And to add to that joy, Karlee and I both found out we were pregnant around the same time. We shared our excitement with one another and Karlee said “there must have been something in the water at our wedding!”.. haha. These two will always hold a special memory in my heart. The fact that I get to meet sweet people like them, build relationships and be invited into such a special time in their lives makes me ever so grateful for this career.

Love | Meagan

About The Wedding:

Jason and Karlee held their wedding at The Cork Factory Hotel, which is always a fan favorite! Their industrial walls, brick interior, candle lit receptions..we can’t get enough! Karlee was the most laid back bride. We were at the reception just long enough to capture their entrance and the toasts. All florals were done by Forte Florals and can I just say.. WOW. I couldn’t stop drooling over them! The color combinations of olive green dresses, and pale whites, creams, pinks and and pops of peach were heavenly together. Karlee’s mother passed away when she was younger, and they incorporated her memory into the ceremony by hanging photos of her and Karlee together on the end chair of each row. It was such a special way to honor her memory. This was the most intimate day, photographing two, true best friends tying the knot and committing their lives to one another. I especially loved that the majority of the day was focused on portraiture. I am so excited to share this wedding with you all! A big thank you to my second shooter, Alyssa.

Dandon and Morgan – May 31st, 2014

2015-03-11

Where do I even begin with this beautiful couple. I first met Morgan a few years back at The Fire And Ice Festival hosted in my quaint town Lititz! Morgan was working at the Rachels Crepes food truck and when I went up to give my order I was mesmerized by her gorgeous ring and sweet tattoos. I just had this feeling that I needed to give her a business card. At the time, I wasn’t very bold in self advertising and for the first time ever, I gathered up all of the nerves inside of me to ask if she’d found a wedding photographer yet. When she told me she hadn’t it took everything in me not to break out in a crazy happy dance of sheer excitement. I gave her my card and low and behold – she hired me! Last Summer she also had my work featured in at Rachel’s Crepes cafe which was so cool. If you have not tried Rachels Crepes before, you don’t even know what life is.

Dandon and Morgan are two of the sweetest, funniest, hippest people I know. It felt like I was at a friends wedding the entire day! That’s the best feeling as a photographer. Being an avid Lancaster City hopper it was so fun seeing so many familiar faces! I didn’t know anyone personally but I recognized SO MANY FACES. All those cool people you see working at the cafe’s, clubs, thrift shops, food trucks, boutiques.. you name them, they were all there. Morgan did such a fabulous job at thrifting all of her decor! Cups, plates, table cloths, her dress! Everything was decked out to perfection and whatever wasn’t thrifted was DIY. It was the perfect spring blend of colors and florals. OH man, those florals. I was on serious detail overload. I still to this day, wish I could go back and have five hours for the detail shots alone. Stefani Burket did an amazing job on Morgans hair and makeup. I love the unique bohemian meets vintage glamor that Morgan and Stefani accomplished. And that head piece? Drooling. Family was so important to these two which is why one of my favorite moments was during the ceremony when Morgans brother walked her down the aisle in his Navy Blues. Such a sweet moment. Another “sweet” moment was the dessert table (see what I did there?). It was decked out in heavenly tasting Lancaster Cupcake yummies. My mouth literally melted. Also, can I just say how freaking awesome of an idea it was to have two of their favorite, local food trucks at the reception for the food/meal and snacks all night!? Souvlaki Boys and Baron Von Schwein. That was a first for me and I am a total fan. Both were so delicious but I am forever obsessed with Baron Von Schwein now and if you haven’t experienced their goodness yet you need to get on that. Lauxmont Farms was as dreamy as ever with it’s rolling hills, horses, cobblestone courtyard and the warm, soft, pink-hued sunset that fell over all of the fields. Glory!

Julia and I had the best day ever photographing this wedding and we are so, so, so excited to share it with you! What is your favorite detail about this wedding?

Justin and Alyssa – May 16th, 2015

2015-03-09

It’s finally time to share all of the beautiful weddings I shot in 2014 with you! I’ve known Justin and Alyssa for years since we all went to high school together. If you haven’t seen their sunny engagement session you should check it out here. This wedding was so fun. Alyssa looked beautiful in her off white, lace-tule dress. It was the perfectly pink and gold detailed day and the dance party at the end was on point. Lauxmont Farms Cobblestone Courtyard is one of my favorite locations (luckily I got to photograph there a few times in 2014)!

This was one of my first wedding’s of the year! Crazy. It’s always so fun to look back and see how different my editing style and eye has grown in one year. I’m still so excited about these images and can’t wait to see what you all think.
