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.
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.
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!
