Green Grove Gardens | Greencastle, PA | Emily & Zack's Wedding

This past July, Rodney captured Emily and Zack’s wedding at Green Grove Gardens. When we arrived at the venue we found the bride and groom getting ready with their bridal party separately. It had been raining for the past day, but the rain let up for about 30 minutes giving us just enough time to get some amazing bridal party shots before the ceremony!

The Ceremony

About ten minutes before the ceremony the coordinator came to ask the bride if she still wanted her ceremony outside. She peeked out the door and noticed there was a hold on the rain and decided and decided to go for it. The ceremony started as planned as the bridal party made their way down the aisle. But suddenly the thunder started to roar and the winds picked up as Emily made her entrance. All in about five minutes Emily and Zack said their vows, exchanged rings, shared their first kiss and became husband and wife just like they alway wanted! Then as they made their exit the rain just started to drizzle and once the crowd made their way inside it began to downpour! 

The Reception

Since everyone was already gathered inside to stay dry it made it very easy to breeze through the formal photos of the family. Once we were finished Emily and Zack were announced into their reception and toasted by their friends and family. Then, like magic, the rain let up again for us to get a few more shots of the bride and groom and their families. When we went back inside the night began! The bride and groom shared their first dance as well danced with their parents, the bouquet and garter were thrown and the cake was cut! Everyone danced the evening away and sent off Emily and Zack with a sparkler exit! We loved capturing this day and wish Emily and Zack the very best of luck!

Green Grove Gardens | Greencastle, PA | Kate & Kelly

Recently, Rodney shot the wedding of Kate and Kelly in Greencastle Pennsylvania. Lexi had previously photographed Kate’s sister’s wedding and we were happy to be asked to be part of their family event again! We started out at Kate’s childhood home as this was where all the girls were getting ready and their make-up was being done by Cindy Kriner. This house was beautiful and had the most perfect natural light any photographer could ask for! We then made a quick trip to the reception venue, Green Grove Gardens to photograph the bride and groom’s first look and some bridal party portraits. Make sure you check out these photos below!

The Ceremony

Once most bridal party portraits were taken we went over to the ceremony location. This gave Kate a few minutes to sit around and joke with her bridesmaids, some old college friends and coworkers, one last time. The ceremony was held in the family’s church Greencastle Presbyterian. The way the pastor and church coordinator carried on with the family of the bride really showed the quality of their friendship and how they were all happy to be part of Kate’s day! Kate was brought down the aisle by her mom and dad and given away to Kelly. They shared their vows, exchanged rings and had their first kiss as husband and wife!

The Reception

After the ceremony, we finished off the rest of the family and bridal party photos between the church sanctuary and the grounds at Green Grove Gardens. The reception was held at Green Grove Gardens, which is a wedding venue in Greencastle, PA which is a renovated dairy barn, and the inside has some of the best event staff around! Kate and Kelly were announced into their reception, toasted by friends and family, shared their first dance and partied the night away! Just to top off the evening the bride and groom left their wedding through a sparkler exit! We were so happy to get to capture Kate’s family once again and we wish Kate and Kelly the best!
