Jordan and Rob met at the church playing basketball 5 years ago. Rob fell in love with this beauty and it all began! And now we have found ourselves on this gorgeous winter day celebrating this wonderful couple at Pen Ryn Estate in Bensalem, PA. It was supposed to be very cold first and then it started snowing. I was happy to at least have a reward of the white wedding :). Jordan wore the most gorgeous strapless wedding dress from Le Bella Donna. The top of the dress was all covered in diamonds and beading. Rob definitely loved her look. The bridesmaids wore stunning silver dresses from Irma’s Bridal. I hope you scroll enough to see those ‘icy princesses’ – how Jordan called them :). The girls had beautiful red and white bouquets from Ziegfield Florist, and Jordan’s wedding bouquet also included wine calla lilies. So pretty!!! The guys wore tuxes from Men’s Warehouse and looked pretty sharp. But most importantly I appreciated the willingness to be outside in this COLD and getting these pretty natural light photos. Well, check out all the photos for yourself and say your congrats to the newlyweds!
Getting ready for the wedding
Jordan and her girls were getting ready at Jordan’s parents home – cozy, warm, with lots of memories. Everyone transformed from naturally beautiful to stunningly dolled up. Jordan’s daughter was entertained by her grandpa being a tiger :). Everyone was anticipating a beautiful day and they were right!
And now as everyone was ready, we left the warmth of Jordan’s parents’ home and headed to see Rob.
Bride and groom first Look
Rob was so excited to see his bride! Well, so was Jordan. I am so thankful they decided to do it outside and get some snowy photos!!! Look at how gorgeous everything looks. It was super bright because of the snow and I felt so bad for Jordan’s eyes, but I have a few super cute photos of her looking like she is winking because she was trying to protect at least one of her eyes :). I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do!!!
There it is!!! A wink <3!!!! And then the bridal party joined us! Yes, they were super cold! But super brave as you can see! And extremely good-looking! The bridesmaids were done with the photos and rushed to the bus to warm up and the groomsmen stayed for a few more shots.
Everyone was cold but in a cheerful mood. We left the park and headed to the church to actually marry these two wonderful people.
Wedding Ceremony at Epworth United Methodist Church
The ceremony took place at Epworth United Methodist Church. Pastor Sang had such a beautiful message. I have heard A LOT of wedding ceremonies but this one somehow was so fresh! I loved listening to it. And yes, everything during the ceremony was perfect. Jordan and Rob’s cutest daughter were saying ‘hello’ to them during the ceremony, and was taking cell-phone pictures of them. And then the whole congregation blessed them with their blessing. I was beautiful. I hope the photos will reflect the moments that have happened there.
And now as Jordan and Brian were officially married it was time to celebrate them! Everyone headed to Pen Ryn!
Pen Ryn Wedding Portraits
We have arrived at Pen Ryn and we couldn’t not take a few extra wedding portraits there. What a gorgeous venue! Jordan and Rob warmed up on a bus a little and were ready to brae the cold again. We spend a few moments for the photos and then all headed inside for the cocktail hour and the reception.
Pen Ryn Estate Wedding Reception
Winter weddings are beautiful! I simply loved their rich golden and red and white wedding decorations. Winter wreath, golden table cloths, red and white floral centerpieces with candles made everything look so beautiful. But again, not only it was gorgeous; the reception was super fun! Jordan and Rob’s family and friends know how to party! Great speeches, fun dancing and lots of great moments have happened during their celebration.
And yes, we sneaked out for some night-time photos too!!! And I love them! And look at that library that Pen Ryn Estate has!!!
It was such an honor to be a part of such a special and fun wedding day! Thank you Jordan and Brian and congratulations to you one more time! God bless you and your family!
What an amazing day it was! I feel so honored to be a part of Rachel and Frank’s wedding day! Thank you so much guys for having me and God bless you!!!
