Heather + John | The Washington at Historic Yellow Springs Wedding, Chester Springs PA

July 23, 2016  •  2 Comments

It's not very often that we meet our couples for the very first time on their wedding day... but that's exactly how it went with Heather & John! I had spoken with Heather a few times over the phone and from the very beginning, I knew they would be just wonderful to work with. She had this easygoing, roll with the punches kind of vibe that made it so delightful to talk with her. 

The day started off with a bit of showers, but cleared right up for their lovely outdoor ceremony in "The Ruins" at The Washington at Historic Yellow Springs. They joined their family and friends at cocktail hour to celebrate and listen to one of John's favorite musicians, Tommy Conwell. This lead to one of my personal favorite moments of the day... In the midst of all the talking and celebrating, I looked over and watched them dancing and smiling with each other like no one else was around. What a perfect depiction of true love. 

Congratulations Heather & John! We loved being a part of your day and are so happy for you!

Their favorite part of the day... 
"All of it!! The time I spent in the Bride’s room was both calm and full of anticipation and got more celebratory as the ceremony drew closer.  I enjoyed looking out of the window as the afternoon brightened and I could see all the preparations and activity buzzing around outside and even some guests arriving.  The moment that I had so looked forward to managed to catch me by surprise the most!  It was the moment I turned the corner into the stone Ruins and saw John waiting for me.  When I saw his face, I was overwhelmed with a wave of emotion.  And seeing all of our friends and family there together in support of our marriage was so special.  Once I made my way up the aisle to John, I was giddy.  And my favorite moment of the day may have been after we walked down the aisle together after the ceremony and we both looked at each other laughing and giddy and we both said 'let’s do it again!'"

Some advice from the bride....
"Plan as much as you can early on.  Life will happen and unexpected things will come up.  If you’ve laid all of the groundwork, it makes it easier to roll with changes. And, enjoy the planning and the details.  Enjoy planning together.  It’s a wonderful and exciting time, a celebration of you both and a celebration of family and friends."

Extra info on the impromptu outdoor dance amongst our guests. I found Heather inside as I was getting a drink and got her a mojito. When I gave it to her she said "I haven't even been outside to see Tommy". I said "Take my hand and keep walking no matter who tries to stop you to talk". We got outside and the next song Tommy played was "I Knew The Bride When She Used to Rock & Roll". That became our unofficial first dance and was what you saw. And it was one of my favorite moments of the evening!!
