Liberty Mountain Resort - Boulder Ridge | Carroll Valley, PA. | Sarah and Michael's Wedding

On May 20th, Rodney shot Sarah and Michael's wedding at Boulder Ridge in Liberty Mountain Resort in Carroll Valley, Pa. Upon arrival at the venue Rodney and his second split up to join both the bridal and groom's suites. Both photographers began documenting the day as well as capturing bridal and groom details. Once both parties were dressed and ready Rodney took them outside separately to get group shots as well ad individuals. After these shots were taken, everyone made their way over to the church for the ceremony.  

The Ceremony

Once everyone made it to St. Joseph's Catholic Church they took their seats and places for the ceremony. Sarah met with her dad right outside the church for the first time that morning and he was in awe of how she looked. They walked down the aisle and Sarah's dad gave his daughter to her groom, Michael. As the traditional Catholic ceremony preceded, friends and family members gave readings and prayed for the couple. Sarah and Michael then said their vows, exchanged rings and shared their first kiss as husband and wife!

The Reception

After the ceremony the family and bridal party were gathered for formal portraits at the church. Once these were complete everyone went back over to Liberty Mountain. This is where the remainder of the couple portraits of the new Mr. and Mrs. were taken! As the photos were just finishing up so was cocktail hour. The bridal party was announced into the reception and the rest of the night was a hit! Sarah and Michael are a great couple and we wish them all the best and hope they had a great honeymoon cruise!

Herr's Tavern | Gattysburg, PA. | Erin & Michael

This past December Rodney made his way over to Gettysburg to photograph the wedding of Erin and Michael at The Inn at Herr’s Ridge. Upon arrival Rodney quickly got to work photographing the bridal details as well as the bride and groom getting ready in their separate suites. Since the guys were ready first Rodney took them outside for formal photos and even captured them playing a game or two of pool. After this Rodney took some time to capture the reception details. Once the ladies were almost ready Rodney captured a few final details and then took the ladies outside for formal photos.

The Ceremony

Once all of the guests took their seats the ceremony began with a cleansing of the room by burning sage. The the family, groomsmen and bridesmaids made their way down the aisle and took their places. Erin was brought down the aisle by her father and handed to her groom, Michael. They exchanged rings, said their vows, and even tied a ceremonial knot before sharing their first kiss as husband and wife! After the ceremony Rodney took a few minutes to capture all of the family formals before everyone made their way into cocktail hour.

The Reception

After the family formals were captured Rodney took just the bride and groom off for some portraits alone. These are absolutely beautiful so make sure you check them out below! Once all the guests took their seats the bridal party and new Mr. and Mrs. were announced into the reception. Erin and Michael then shared their first dance as well as a dance with each of their parents. The night continued on with toasts, dinner, cake cutting and dancing by all! Erin and Michael’s night finished off with a chilly sparkler exit and a cheer for the new couple. It was a privilege to capture Erin and Michael's day and we wish them a lifetime of happiness!
