The day started out at Sha Bella Salon in Hatfield. We started bright and early to cover ladies getting their hair and makeup done. I stayed with the girls as usual while Michael and Tom (our kick a$$ associate) went with the guys.
Anthony and Jenna are a special couple. Our personalities clicked right away, it seemed as if we were old time friends. The more comfortable the bride and groom are around their wedding photographers, the better the pictures (seems like a no brainer).
Their ceremony was held at Mary Mother the Redeemer in North Wales. Their reception was held at Talamore Country Club, an amazing space to shoot in! It was a perfect space for us for several reasons. We also had another opportunity to work with Jason from Synergetic Sounds. We’ve worked with him a few times before and highly recommend his company. I think I stress enough about how important having a good dj is, but just in case I haven’t gotten my point across yet, it really is important, lol. Once again, he did a great job in getting people on the dance floor and keeping them there.
As for the party itself, I’ve never seen so many dropped beverages and therefore broken glass before. Michael counted 5 and I counted 6 but that’s besides the point, there was a lot! Did it stop the dancing? Nope, and it didn’t stop people from dancing barefoot either. Episane! I think you can guess how fun this wedding was. Jenna is an insanely fun dancer, who I’ll be inviting to my next girls night out dancing, haha. Anthony and his family, along with 99.7% (guesstimating) of their guests are HUGE Penn State fans. He had “We Are” cuff links along with other Penn State do dads at the wedding. Jenna even surprised him with a Penn State grooms cake at the rehearsal dinner made from the delicious baker and talented cake artist Mike & Jackie Stackhouse from The Cake Shop.
We didn’t have any other shoots this weekend, so we stayed for the after party. It was nothing compared to the craziness of the reception, it was more low key and much more calm. It was nice grabbing a drink and chit chatting with new friends.
