A Sentimental Blush Wedding at The Gathering Place in Lancaster, PA

Jun 5, 2019

As the song smoothly transitioned to the next, and the last bridesmaid made her way down the aisle, a small smile began to appear on David’s face. He had been anxiously waiting all day for this exact moment, and it was finally here! Lisabet and her father began the beautiful walk down the path through the gardens, each step bringing her closer to the man she was about to call her husband!

To the man she has fallen head-over-heels for and wants to spend the rest of her life with!

As she rounded the final corner with her dad closely by her side, tears began to well up in her eyes. She finally came into view for David, and it just felt like the moment stopped in time. All seemed to go quiet as we watched Lisabet walk down the aisle, arm-in-arm with her dad but eyes locked on her soon-to-be husband.

From the very first hug I received from Lisabet as she was getting her makeup done to the final hug I gave to the newlyweds at the end of the night, these two made me feel like a part of their family the entire day! Each bridesmaid and groomsmen perfectly complemented the bride and groom, and you could see how strong each friendship was! Countless times the bridal party was making sure these two looked absolutely perfect!

Which wasn’t too hard to do because they are such a sweet and amazing looking couple!!!

Constant happiness and laughter filled our time together! I could not have asked for a better way to start my 2019 wedding season. Lisabet and David, thank you so much for making me feel like a guest at your wedding instead of just a vendor. Our friendship means so much to me, and I am so glad I was able to watch you two finally become husband and wife! I wish you two all the best and know you two will move mountains together!! Always stay smiling, just like you were throughout your entire wedding day! I hope you are having an incredible time on your honeymoon and hope you enjoy these photos when you return!!
