Amanda & Brandon's Wedding

This week we travel to southern PA for the Wedding Ceremony and Reception of Amanda & Brandon at DuCar Farms in Chambersburg. 
The weather has been crazy in Central PA this summer so far. If it is not raining, it is crazy hot and this week is no exception as temperatures are pushing the upper 90s. 
The reception will be in the barn and the ceremony will take place at the gazebo in front of the main house. At 3:45pm the groom and groomsmen take their places and the bridal procession starts down the aisle. Amanda then makes her way around from the back of the house and down the stairs to the sounds of The Piano Guys covering "Perfect" from Ed Sheeran. 
When the officiant presents the new Mr & Mrs. Gricks, the newlyweds head back up the aisle to the sounds of The Piano Guys covering "Somewhere Over The Rainbow". Once the bridal party has made it back up the aisle, guests are invited to enjoy cocktails from Catered Cocktails downstairs while Yasha takes the br…

Kendra & Matt's Wedding

Today we are traveling to Jersey Shore for the wedding of Kendra & Matt. We will be inside the Rozenburg Barn for the reception and outside the front of the main house for the ceremony. 
As we are setting up we are hoping that the weather holds out for an outdoor ceremony as we are set up for that already. Looking at hourly forecasts we decide to move up the start time of the ceremony by almost 20 minutes. Trying to stay ahead of the rain. 
At 2:10 Kendra gets out of a waiting car to walk down the aisle to meet with a waiting Matt all to the music of Ellie Goulding's "How Long Will I Love You". Things have been sped up because of the impending rain situation, so the ceremony has been shortened a bit. 
The officiant presents the new couple Mr And Mrs Harrison, and the bride and groom walk up the aisle to "Kiss Me" by Sixpence None The Richer. Daniel James takes the bridal party and family for the pictures before…

Jesse & Ashley's Wedding

Jesse, Ashley, The Bridal Party, & Guests partying!
Today we are heading right down the road to Mingoville at the Nittany Country Club, for the wedding of Ashley And Jesse. Jesse contacted us after finding us on Google, and after speaking with him through a few emails we were able to strike a deal. 
During our bridal consult I learned that Jesse was a musician and that the song they had chosen for their first dance was a song that he has written for Ashley, performed by him, and recorded by him back when they were in college. 
Jesse's mother had passed when he was younger, so his step mother (which day of wedding we found out was our bank teller) stepped in to dance with him to a song from James Taylor that his mother would sing to him when he was younger. A touching moment for all those involved. 
During the dollar dance the bride and groom decided to make it a competition to see who can raise more money. Ashley won this competition but not by much. After a lot of dancing we …

Kirstin & Tyler's Wedding

Today we are headed to the beautiful campus of Juniata College in Huntingdon for the wedding of Tyler and Kirstin. 
We never actually met this couple in person until the day of the wedding. This was all planned via phone, email, and our online planner. We covered both the reception and ceremony. The Ceremony was to be held outside, but due to weather forecasts this couple was forced to move the ceremony indoors. As mother nature would have it, the forecast changed at the minute. 
The ceremony was held across the street from the building the reception was in. At 3:30pm The Grandparents and Parents were ushered in and then Kirtsin walked down the aisle to "Cannon in D" to a waiting Tyler. Once the officiant presented them as the new Mr & Mrs Reed. They walked up the aisle to "You Make My Dreams" from Hall & Oates. 
Over at the Reception after the Grand Entrance, which also involved bubble…
