Do you believe in fate? Kaitlin and Joseph do and their friends and family sure do! These two randomly met in college and continuously ran into each other after their first encounter. Since then, they’ve been inseparable and I had the pleasure of capturing their big day! The day was so sweet, friends and family gathered to witness these two say “I Do” and hear about their love story.  From meeting at Penn State University to continuing their relationship from the long distances of North Carolina and Pennsylvania, nothing could stop these two from seeing each other. 

Kaitlin wore a gorgeous Allure Bridals with cap sleeves and bead detailing. Standing by Kaitlin’s side, her bridesmaids all wore long pink gowns from Davids Bridal. To bring everything together, the florals included different shades of pink and light peach roses all designed by Zieger Florists! After a beautiful church ceremony, we headed to Lucien’s Manor for some photos in the gorgeous ballroom. Despite some rain we managed to grab some great photos and had a lot of fun with this bridal party.

Congratulations Kaitlin and Joseph, it was a JOY being a part of your day!

The most important thing to me when planning our wedding was everyone, including us, to have fun and enjoy all the food! I was extremely organized leading up to the wedding and planned our timeline to include any chance of slip ups, like people running late or bad weather. I also wanted to make sure we were both able to enjoy the day so I made sure every vendor we chose we fully trusted and they were the best of the best. This way I could let them focus on their area of expertise and I could feel stress free on our big day!

We had over lapping friends but never had an officially introduction, I knew who Joe was and Joe knew who I was. In my senior year of college we kept running into each other over and over!
It was fate! One night at a bar I asked Joe to dance with me! He joined me on the dance floor and we’ve been together ever since.

My favorite memory is dancing with my husband. We both love to dance and admit we are not very good, but we just enjoy having fun and being goofy!

I wanted a timeless, classic wedding. I wanted to look back on pictures and it wouldn’t look like it was from a specific era. I think we achieved that with our venue and theme.

I felt relaxed and at peace the day of the wedding. Leading up to the wedding, I felt so emotional with every time we spoke with our priest and anyone about our marriage.
The day of, I felt so calm and so relaxed, like this is exactly where we are meant to be! I truly feel like we enjoyed every second of our day!
