August 29, 2013Chelsea + John \\ WeddingEarlystown Manor | State College, PA

Miss Stephanie (of Stephanie Dee Photography) had me along for another second shooting adventure, this time in the land of Kealan’s alma mater! As usual, State College had me fooled, and was about fifteen degrees cooler than I expected it to be, even though you’d think maybe all the times I regretfully rolled into Penn State in flip flops might have taught me a lesson.

Chelsea and John have a wonderful love story that involves her writing down that she knew she met her husband on the day they met, even though she didn’t remember his name :) Here’s my view of the day her hunch came true!

First, I spent a little time with the girls.

Then I hopped on over to see the boys getting ready!

This is the part of wedding ceremonies that I always start smiling really big because, um, it’s the best.

It’s not really a wedding until the photographers accidentally walk the bridesmaids into some trees, you know.
