Elizabeth + Andrew | Wedding

I’m short on words when it comes to describing these two because I’m pretty sure words sufficient enough haven’t been invented yet.
I’m so thrilled for these two and their sweet families and am honored to be a part of this day not just for them but with them.
Thank you to the fabulous Jim Heine for coming out from Philadelphia again shooting with me!

Sarah + David | Wedding

So I feel like I’ve known Sarah and David forever. I have known them a while, and it’s been wonderful to see them grow together!
But they are also the kind of people that could make even the furthest stranger feel at home and loved!
Their families are equally loving and sweet, which made this wedding day so filled with excitement and emotion.

It was a little strange shooting at the same location twice in a weekend, as two days before this wedding, I shot Kari and Marlon’s wedding at The Pink Palace as well.
But each was their own special event. Finding and using parts of a location that best fits each couple is a challenge I am up for!

The day started with me arriving at The Pink Palace a little early. I was just waiting for the girls to get there.
When they arrived, I made my way out to see if they needed help. Sarah saw me from the front lawn and made a bee-line to me screaming, “AMY DALE!!!”
She hugged me and said, “I am soooo glad to see you! This means it’s all really real!” I have never been met with such enthusiasm! It was awesome!

It was a beautiful fall day! The ceremony was filled with tears and cheers and the reception was rocking!
Thank you two for an amazing day and such a sweet relationship! You two are incredible!

Sarah & David – 5 September 2010

Sarah’s brother came to give Sarah her pearl necklace…

One of my favorites…

David, you are so handsome…

Sarah, you are stunning!…

Sarah pins her sweet mother’s flower on…

Guess what David got as a wedding gift…

I don’t know how, but I failed to mention that David is a kick-butt musician! Their band kept the night hoppin’!!…

While everyone cheered them on from the palace front lawn, their parents and a few friends met them by their car to say their final goodbyes. Sarah’s dad and mom…

Kari + Marlon | Wedding

Love this couple! A great sign that a couple is going to be great is when they balance each other out.
Kari and Marlon are wonderful compliments for each other and I’m honored to be a part of the beginning of their new life together!

Marlon’s family is from overseas and it was a delight to see Kari’s family and friends host them with open arms.
What a supportive and loving family you both have! They made the day truly amazing!

Just to show you how sweet these two are, I have a short story…
After they had left the reception, everyone was packing and cleaning up. I went out to my car and got everything in it, put the key in and NOTHING.
My car had died. Kari and Marlon had pulled around the back to pick up some gifts before they left for home and asked me what was going on.
Then Marlon proceeds to get out of the car, roll up his sleeves, pop the hood of my car and investigate.
After four of us, tired and all wanting to go home, had looked at the situation, Kari and Marlon offered to take me home!
I felt so bad as they were going the complete opposite direction. Luckily, my friend, Tommy, the owner of Dingo Entertainment, was heading my way so, him and his
assistant took me home. But I couldn’t believe they would offer to take me on their wedding day! What sweethearts!

So yea,  here’s to one of the most exciting days of your life!

Kari & Marlon – 3 September 2010

Also, I’d like to congratulate Kari and Marlon! They will be having a beautiful (obviously it will be!) baby next year!

Kari, you are going to be the cutest pregnant mommy ever and the sweetest mom! Marlon, you will be the kindest and most gentle father!
