This past June Rodney photographed the wedding of Nicole and Chris at Boulder Ridge. Boulder Ridge is a wedding venue that is part of Liberty Mountain Resort which is located in Carroll Valley, Pennsylvania. The bride and groom got ready on location and the bride got to have two first looks! One with her father and another with her groom! These photos are amazing- make sure you check them out below! And since the bride and groom saw each other prior to the ceremony we used this time to get bridal party portraits and some family formals out of the way.
This wedding was held outside on property at Boulder Ridge. Within the gardens outside, sat rows of white chairs facing a gazebo. The ceremony space is tucked right in a little hill which makes it feel very secluded and intimate. The bridal party made their way down the aisle following Nicole and Chris’s family. After, Nicole was brought down the aisle by her father and given to Chris, her groom. The bride and groom then shared their vows, exchanged rings and had their first kiss as husband and wife.
Since the bride and groom got all their bridal party portraits and family formals done prior to the ceremony, they got to be part of their cocktail hour- a luxury not many couples get. Once Nicole and Chris were announced into their reception space they went right into their first dance. At Boulder Ridge the reception area is indoors and for this wedding it was decorated with woodsy attributes, pink pops of color and florals throughout. The bride and groom then danced with their parents and had dinner with their friends and family. Once the cake was cut this party was off! Everyone danced and this wedding was complete with a huge dessert table and even a sparkler exit! Capturing this wedding was a blast and we wish Nicole and Chris the very best!
