Warm tones and textures, macrame and lace. These are the things that I only ever dreamed of photographing before. Boho style weddings are not that common in Pennsylvania, so when I looked around Forest Hall and saw some of these details, I was pumped. It was finally going to happen! I wanted to make sure I made memories of every single texture and color that my eyes took in. It was like I was photographing a dream, and I never wanted to forget it.
There are always coupes that just stand out to me. Ones that have a way with the camera and each other. Sarah and Caleb were those people. They were so into each other and not afraid to really get in there. I definitely did some whooping behind the camera. They’re married, unlike the other model couple who has yet to have their real wedding photos taken, so I think that maybe they knew what to expect. As I worked with them, laughing and moving around I really was able to take in the feeling of the palette and the vibe. It was sexy and chic. Warm and welcoming. Absolutely breath taking. Needless to say, I’m hoping that a few of my 2019 or 2020 brides see this post and decide to go desert themed. I never knew just how magical it could be, and by looking through some of these images I know you’ll agree. Enjoy!
Again, this couldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for the many vendors that came together to make this happen, and I encourage you to head to each of their links and take a look at what they do. These guys worked their BUTTS off. To Chelsy and the Gathering Co. team: thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my soul for bringing us all together and sharing your remarkable gifts with us.
