Amy + Barry • The Ryland Inn Wedding • New Jersey Wedding Photographer

This late summer wedding included a few hints of fall colors- the bridesmaids dresses and the gorgeous bouquets brought in those early autumn feels. 
Amy and Barry exchanged their vows in an outdoor ceremony at The Ryland Inn surrounded by their family and friends. 

Their reception room was filled with lush greenery, candles and gorgeous floral centerpieces.

Brenna + Kevin • Bear Creek Mountain Resort Wedding • New Jersey Wedding Photographer

It may have been a chilly November afternoon but the cold did not stop Brenna and Kevin from having an outdoor ceremony at Bear Creek Mountain Resort in Lehigh Valley, PA.
Their guests braved the cold as the couple exchanged their vows under a gorgeous floral arch by Pink Dahlia Floral & Event Design.

The ceremony was followed by a night of dancing and celebrating the New Mr. & Mrs. Lewis!

Congratulations to The Newlyweds!!

Samantha is 8!!!

Samantha may be 8 but I swear sometimes I think she must be older! 
She said goodbye to Barbies and dollhouses a few years ago! And replaced them with a desk and a laptop! 

She's an amazing reader (seriously, how does she know how to read and pronounce all these words??? Steve and I are not even attempting to spell anything to each other for the kids not to understand!), a math wiz (adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing, etc. she gets it! -  math was mama's favorite subject after all 😳), and a pretty good "athlete" (ball dribbling, ball hitting, bike riding... she likes to be active). 

There are so many reasons for us to be proud of her and who she is becoming!

She's assertive and knows how to stand up for herself!
Confident but humble!
Strong but compassionate!
Girly but a tomboy!
Sassy but sweet!
Driven and ambitious!

Happy Birthday, Baby Girl! 
8 years ago you made us mama and dadda, and we cannot even begin to describe how blessed and lucky we feel!
You bring so much joy and happiness into our lives! Your little brother absolutely adores you, even though it may seems like all you two have been doing is bickering ;)

Don't ever change! You are one of a kind!

Samantha and I ventured out to a nearby park for a few photos- she looks forward to her
'birthday session' each year :)
Here are a few of my favorite shots as well as some of her last year's adventures!
