I knew during our very first phone call that Hannah and Joe’s Bryn Athyn Cathedral wedding was going to be incredible. Not only is the Bryn Athyn Cathedral itself gorgeous, but the reception venue, The Lord’s New Church, is replete with the same beautiful stone architecture and nestled in the same serene landscape that makes all of Bryn Athyn so perfect for a wedding. Moreover, Hannah and Joe are unbelievably nice and truly genuine people. Those emotions really shine through in the pictures and it was clear that the guests felt incredibly close to the bride and groom. Hannah and Joe’s wedding had every single emotional moment that makes photographing weddings so rewarding. We started off the day at Blue Salon where Hannah and her bridesmaids got their hair and makeup done. We then headed over the Bryn Athyn Cathedral. It’s really a stunning church both inside and out. At the Cathedral, Hannah and Joe shared one of the most amazing first looks I’ve ever captured. There were tears (and laughter) all around as they exchanged gifts with each other. The ceremony that followed was solemn and beautiful and afterwards we headed to the cocktail hour and reception at the Lord’s New Church. It was a night filled with great speeches, non-stop dancing, a few photos at sunset in the meadow, and a French fry bar (which is of course, the best kind of bar there is =))
Congratulations to Hannah and Joe! Enjoy the photos and be sure to wish them well in the comments below.
