Lauren and Colin’s Glen Foerd on the Delaware Wedding | Philadelphia, PA

Lauren and Colin were married at the beautiful Philadelphia Glen Foerd Mansion right on the Delaware river one perfect September day. These two are such lighthearted, fun, and genuine people who had a truly beautiful and sentimental wedding day. It was a true honor to be there to capture it unfold <3

How romantic and dreamy was Lauren and Colin’s wedding? Picture this (or scroll down to see photos if you just can’t wait!): Personal vows shared intimately between bride and groom only during their first look, their ceremony just before sunset, under a floral arch in front of the Delaware River at Glen Foerd, a first dance surrounded by loved ones and a final night portrait outside complete with a kiss and a dip. Truly picture perfect.

Now, arguable the bigger question – how sweet, personal, and fun was Lauren and Colin’s wedding?? Short answer: very! Going through these images, putting this blog post together, so many different emotions came jumping out at me all over again. There were so many moments in the bridal suite, throughout the whole day, Including a final sip of champagne before walking down the aisle, and gifts exchanged between sisters <3 The sweetest father (and brother) first looks with Lauren after her sister helped her into her gown in the suite, complete with shocked and awe, and misty eyes. There was laughter and sweet tears during Lauren and Colin’s first look as they saw each other and exchanged their handwritten vows, read silently together. That moment especially, was so beautiful to witness and capture. Soon after we headed out with the bridal party for portraits with all 21 of them (true story, and they were awesome!) following the soon to be newlyweds. More joy, more laughter, and an ounce of anticipation!

Guests began gathering and before long Lauren excitedly walked down the aisle to Colin; seeing everyone’s faces in these photos brings a huge smile to my face every. single. time! Vows were exchanged with more smiles and tears, and these two became man and wife! Hugs and a drink were enjoyed (those exhale moments are so important to take during a wedding day) and then sun soaked portraits of these two were captured! They made their way over to cocktail hour where so many conversations and laughter was being shared between guests. Slowly everyone trickled into the white tent which was filled with these romantic garden-y and whimsical vibes. Their details really brought this vision to life: windmill guest cards, a pressed flower cake, lush centerpieces, and lights in the tent which kept a warm glow as sunset turned to dusk.

Lauren and Colin embraced one another and shared their first dance as husband and wife, surrounded by their loved ones. The speeches that were given were truly beautiful, filled with such emotion and love. That love continued into Lauren and her father sharing a dance, followed by Colin and his mother. From there the dancing continued. Different music brought different groups to the dance floor while kids ran around outside, s’mores were eaten, the cake was cut (and shared), the photo booth was always in use and I whisked the newlyweds outside for one final portrait – and it was quick, because Lauren’s favorite song came on and they jammed out the rest of the night!

A truly wonderful day filled with so many memories! Enjoy reliving them as you scroll through the photos below, thank you so much again Lauren and Colin for inviting me in to document your wedding day <3
