Sharon’s yellow roses wedding bouquet was beautiful.

I especially love this portrait of Sharon by the window. It encapsulates the elegance and distinction you see when you meet Sharon.

And Matthew was right on par with her.

Welcome back to the second installment of Dana and Brendan’s wedding at Springfield Country Club: the reception. As you can see, the place looked beautiful. I especially love the ice sculpture with their initials and the heart.

As you probably noticed from the previous post, they had a large bridal party … and a big entrance was only fitting.

As soon as I walked in Springfield Country Club and saw this wall, I knew I had to use it for a portrait of the beautiful couple.

And now, it’s Dana’s turn to open her gift from Brendan. I don’t know what he wrote, but you can see Dana trying to hold back the tears.

And the other (better?) half of the bridal party along with the beautiful bride.

Welcome to the (fun) part of Devin and Michael’s wedding. As I mentioned earlier, their theme was based around wine, and The Phoenixville Foundry was decorated with many details around it.Collage with images from phoenixville foundry wedding reception

I love the wine barrel wedding guest book.

And this cool carved wood candle holder (with their initials carved in).

The first dance is always beautiful ….

The first dance was followed by the parent dances … and they are always emotional.

Welcome back to Devin and Michael’s ceremony. The weather was beautiful allowing their ceremony to be held outdoors at the gorgeous Phoenixville Foundry. One thing I love about weddings, is that you get to see different themes and traditions at each wedding. Devin and Michael decided to have a wine ceremony. And all the decor was designed around that theme.Phoenixville Foundry outdoor ceremony details

You have to love the sign the ring bearer had: Ring Security:)
