Hi, everyone! I’m so happy to have you here…wether we met in real life or on social media, or not at all, i’m just so glad you are here! Today we get to talk about this gorgeous wedding, and the minute i started putting together a feature for them, i knew picking only a few was going to be a problem. If you like pretty pictures, you are at the right place. If you know Corey and Abby, leave them a word of encouragement as they start out on this journey together. This wedding day was surrounded by rain and (also unbearable heat) but, on this particular day it did not rain. The apartment the girls got ready in was flooded by a foot in the basement and many people had flooding here in Pennsylvania. Abby decided to change the location of the formals last minute so that if it rained we would have protection. Stauffer’s Park, just outside of Lancaster City has a wrap around porch on the house that faces three directions. The perfect spot for a rained out wedding party. I also was stocked with clear umbrellas for everyone but we didn’t need any of it! What a fun day of celebrating!  Also want to note that a groomsman (Groom’s brother) is missing on all of the photos because his wife had just had a baby! Congratulations to having a first baby and missing your first event, Dustin and Jenna. There will be many more things you miss out on due to having a baby, but all of them are so worth it!

Abby, you made a gorgeous bride. You had such a great time on your wedding day and it made you sparkle and shine! Every single moment of the day was just breathtaking because you were having so much fun! I am so excited to see where life takes you and Corey from here, because i know that it will be a grand adventure for the two of you. I loved your first look so much. The anticipation and excitement that you had to be able to see Corey for the first time in your dress, made the rest of us so excited, too.  Your wedding day was magic because of you.

Isn’t she so gorgeous? Corey, your excitement and happiness matched Abbys perfectly. There is not one thing you could have done differently to make your bride happier. Your love for her and your desire to make her happy was at the center of the entire day. The two of you made this day beautiful and fun because the two of you are beautiful and fun. You planned a really great party for the people who love you the most! You were a laid back, confident groom, giving everyone around you the space to have a great time! You are the perfect man for Abby.

I love bridal parties. I don’t know what they feed themselves for breakfast (probably lots of coffee) but they are always- in the best of moods! Everyone was so happy and talkative and having so much fun. And i’m not just talking about the girls. Guys love being in the bridal party, too, and are typically the ones being so goofy and keeping the rest of us relaxed and normal. Also, bridal parties are eager to help out and lift things and move them around and all the extra stuff you don’t think about. This bridal party was epic in all of those ways. So much fun!

Their was a grandma that makes the best chocolates in the whole wide world and check out all the fancy desserts. Everything was perfect and tasted so so good! At the end of the day the guests got to sprinkle the couple with flowers, which ended up being more like a flower shower. So much fun for the rest of us but the bride and groom were questioning their choice of exits. I love when they choose something crazy! The perfect ending to the best day! You guys made a very good party, Corey and Abby. Thanks for having us!
