Amanda and Andrew are two very special people for my heart. Their characters, values, treasures are so close to mine that I can call them my sister and brother :). I am very glad I was able to be a part of there wedding and photograph these special moments for them. I didn’t have a chance to talk to them too much and to learn their story of how they met and fell in love but seeing them on their wedding day was enough for me to know that they are set for success in their marriage.

They both got ready for the wedding the basement of their church in Glenside, PA. Girls gathered in one room and the guys were getting ready in the nursery. Pink and yellow fluffy decorations were perfect backdrop for guys and their tuxedos :). After the guys got ready we went outside for some photos and got some fun family photos as well (especially with Amanda’s dad :). Check them out below.

The girls took a little longer to get ready, and after Amanda got into her gorgeous wedding dress we went out outside for some photos for the girls too. The bridesmaids wore beautiful blue lacy dresses which could perfectly be used as ‘something blue’.

And her dad gave her away into hands that now will be caring for her. I am sure Andrew was very happy to have this responsibility now and didn’t feel any burden at all! Philadelphia Wedding PhotographerPhiladelphia Wedding Photographer
