Kim and Michael were married in a gorgeous fall wedding on October 20 with a ceremony at Holy Sepulcher Roman Catholic Church and a reception at The Stables at Connoquenessing in Renfrew, PA.
I met this amazing couple through my best friend Addie! Addie married into Mike’s family, so I’ve known him for over five years now. I was THRILLED when Kim and Mike reached out to me about being their wedding photographer. Addie’s daughter, Kate, was one of the flower girls, so it was extra special for me on a personal level! I knew a lot of the faces at the wedding!
When it was time to propose, Mike made three signs for each of Kim’s niece and nephews to hold. The signs read, “Kimberly Ann, will you marry me?” The question mark was on her littlest nephew’s shirt. When she walked in the door, she was greeted with these signs. Then, upon turning around, there was Mike down on one knee. He proposed in Kim’s parent’s house with her entire family and his sister present. He could not have planned the proposal any better. He knows how much family means to Kim. It meant the world to her that her family was there for such an important occasion.
That commitment to family and to each other was present all throughout their wedding day. It was wonderful to see how happy these two were to be married, but what was truly beautiful was how everyone came to celebrate their love. From the moment Kim got into her stunning bridal gown until the very last photographs of the evening, it was nothing but joy.
I asked Mike and Kim what advice they had for other couples who were also planning weddings and they shared that the most important thing was to find your ceremony venue and reception venue early. They found that finding the right venue was one of the most difficult parts of the process. But I am so glad that they chose the Stables at Connoquenessing! This rustic Pennsylvania wedding venue was infused with rustic elegance and nostalgic charm. It was a perfect backdrop for their autumn wedding.
Mike and Kim, I am just so happy for you both. Thank you for asking me to be your wedding photographer! Being a part of your October wedding was such a treat for me. Thanks also to Lizzy, my associate photographer and second shooter for helping me capture their wedding photography!
