Love stories are beautiful! Every love story is unique and special in its own way. Justine and Jonathan’s story is not an exception. The two are deeply in love with each other and got married at the Gardens of Stonebridge in Beaver County, Pennsylvania. The lovely wedding took place in the middle of a farm and lush greenery. Florals by Pisarcik Flower Farm added to the beauty of the celebration site. I got the opportunity to be Justine and Jonathan’s wedding photographer and loved playing my part in their fairy tale.
Jonathan had proposed to Justine while they were on vacation. Justine told me that they were at a restaurant that used to be a palace earlier. It had gardens, a stream, a pond, and a menagerie of animals such as cute little bunnies, peacocks, and swans. Justine is a true animal lover, so she was already happy to be there. It was night time, and the lights were twinkling. So, just when Justine thought they were posing for a photo on a pretty bridge, she realized that it was a video instead. And at that moment, Jonathan got down on one knee and proposed!
As they went over different venues, Justine and Jonathan zeroed in on Gardens of Stonebridge. It ranked high on their list since both of them are nature lovers and wanted a venue that resonated with their personalities.
Justine and Jonathan’s wedding was SO beautiful. The first look was such an emotional moment. The bride and groom could neither control their tears of happiness nor their excitement. I loved the fact that I could take some portraits of them both before and after the ceremony. This way, the couple also got some private time to soak in all the good vibes. Then I took some great detail photos, decor images, and family portraits. The dance photos turned out to be amazing too!
After the wedding, when I contacted Justine for her advice to future brides on wedding planning, she said, “I’m not into wedding planning, so I guess, outsource it? Or start as early as possible and break up large tasks into small ones, so you aren’t rushing the month before your wedding.”
Thank you for your advice, Justine. We love you! And wish you and Jonathan a happy forever!
