Downtown Lancaster City Intimate Wedding

Apr 15, 2021

A downtown Lancaster City intimate wedding may not have been what they pictured, but it sure was a beautiful day!

Sometimes the plans you have get flipped upside down. It’s the way that you deal with those changes that shows who you are as a person. For Anne and Dominick, what they have been through to get to their wedding day has show how kind, forgiving, and understanding these two are!

Kind. Forgiving. Understanding.

As most of you know, COVID threw a wrench in so many couples’ wedding days! Some were forced to do one reschedule, while others were forced into two or three. For Anne and Dominick, a two-year postponement on the wedding of their dreams was what they landed on. What was supposed to be a 2020 wedding, turned into an intimate wedding in 2021 and a full blown celebration in 2022. Which I’m so stinking excited for!
With each changing restriction, Anne and Dominick took each moment as it came, and made each decision together. They knew that what was going to happen was meant to be, and they just wanted to stay calm and excited for each moment.

April 10, 2021 finally came!

Although it was only a very few of their immediate family, the love and happiness for the two of them filled the entire First United Methodist Church! There wasn’t a dry eye the entire ceremony. As Anne walked down the aisle with her mom by her side, Dominick had tears slowly rolling down he’s cheek, but once they made it to the front, he just couldn’t contain it any more. All the time they had waited. The day was finally here!

He was finally marrying the woman of his dreams!

It is honestly the biggest honor to be present for my couples’ weddings! Especially when it is an intimate one and only a certain number of people are allowed. I just feel so blessed to come and document this special moment so that everyone else can share in the excitement! It truly doesn’t get better than that!
Anne and Dominick, I can’t express how much you two mean to me. From our initial call, I feel like we have always been close friends! I love how you always check how I’m doing in your emails and are always keeping me informed. Thank you for having me at not just for your big wedding next year but also for your downtown Lancaster City intimate wedding this year! I can’t wait for you to have all of your family and friends around to celebrate in 2022! I hope you enjoy reliving each moment of your wedding day through these images! It was such a special day!
