Emily and Johnny's wedding day started with a torrential downpour and it ended with the most beautiful sunny sunset, lots of love, happy tears and the most adorable ring bearer! Emily is the sister of one of my favorite photographers in Maryland turned friend (Alex Mandato) and I am so incredibly honored they entrusted me with Emily & Johnny’s special day at Historic Shady Lane in Pennsylvania.
Emily & Johnny came all the way from Florida with their adorable pooch, Vader, who also has a custom suit made just for the wedding and made for the most adorable ring bearer who did so well with the help of Furever Always as the handlers for the day! We started their morning with some prosecco, happy tears over sweet and meaningful gifts from Emily’s best girls, followed by the fabulous hair and makeup before their ceremony and of course, the beautiful details that included vintage items and her grandmother's ring, how sweet is that?
Between happy tears, strong emotions and a sweet and funny ceremony, followed by some AMAZING PORTRAITS, some impeccably gorgeous reception space and the delicious dessert table and handmade pop-tart favors, I can’t wait for everyone to see them all, so read on, friends! And tag along to live or relive their beautiful wedding day.
Mr. & Mrs. Hettchen, congrats on tying the knot!
