Summer Inn at Willow Grove Wedding

Ashley and Ryan had a gorgeous summer Inn at Willow Grove Wedding over Labor Day weekend. We had beautiful weather to close out the summer and celebrate their love. David and I have really enjoyed getting to know Ashley and Ryan over the last year as they have been planning the wedding. We spent a weekend with them in NYC in the spring for their engagement session and they gave us a true New Yorkers tour of the city. I loved ending our session with dinner together and chatting for hours while eating fancy macaroni and cheese in a New York hotspot. Next time we go to NYC we plan to visit with them again!

They could not have picked a better location than The Inn at Willow Grove for their Southern wedding. The historic yellow plantation house is a stunning backdrop for photos. Ashley choose a beautiful palette of gray and mint green for her colors and the drapey bridesmaids dresses were perfect. Ashley and Ryan decided to do a First Look so we could spend more time getting portraits of the two of them before the ceremony. The willow trees were the perfect homage to the Inn and provided a beautiful location for portraits. I loved walking the grounds and finding new locations for portraits! Even though I’ve been shooting at the Inn for the last 5 years I still find new spots to take advantage of.

My favorite part of Ashley & Ryan’s reception was their entrance, they each recorded things about how they felt about each other. Impressions of when they first met, when they knew the other was the one and wishes for the future. I got to stand outside with them and capture the moments they heard what the other had to say, the laughter and the tears of happiness. It was such an incredible moment! I love watching two people say I do but I love it even more when I can call them friends!
