This past weekend I had the pleasure of celebrating with Emily & Cole at The Inn at Willow Grove. I absolutely love this gorgeous venue, as well as the people who were wed. It was such a beautiful day in October where Emily & Cole were surrounded by their family & friends, but as it turns out even their friends were more like family to them. Emily & Cole’s joyous union was such a beautiful celebration that I had the honor of capturing.
It was such a pleasure to be back at The Inn at Willow Grove, as it offers such a picturesque location with it’s southern charm. There were so many elements of Emily & Cole’s wedding that I absolutely adored. Emily made a gorgeous bride & her bridal bouquet was out of this world (amazing job, Good Earth Flowers!). Their wedding color palette consisted of white, greens, & gold & it was nothing but classy. Emily & Cole’s wedding was beautiful, but that’s not the only reason why I fell in love with their special day.
There were numerous times where I got teary eyed throughout the day. It all began with the First Look, & I don’t mean with the bride and groom. Emily shared a First Look with her bridesmaids & their reactions were priceless. All of Emily’s bridesmaids made a train & lined up to prepare for Emily’s arrival. When Emily made her big reveal, it was the perfect photo opportunity. Tears were shed, hugs were shared, & their jaws dropped as they saw Emily for the first time in her bridal attire. After witnessing that moment, I’m convinced more brides should include this into their special day!
Shortly after Emily & Cole shared their first look at the fountain in the courtyard. This location was one of their favorite spots so I only found it appropriate to use this location (pending light, of course). It was a romantic moment between the two of them, where shortly after they popped open a bottle of champagne to celebrate! Afterwards we captured some of the most beautiful portraits of Emily & Cole. Their chemistry was out of this world with Emily’s baby blues were showing off in front of the camera. These two made such a beautiful couple on both the inside & out. It’s not doubt why they are loved by so many.
Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. DeLucas!
