May the Force Be With You, Always // Diane + Jesse

We were looking forward to this wedding for a long time!  Jesse has been a good friend of Glen’s for years.  He actually helped Glen start the business that has today grown to Cord 3 Films.  Now this was a fun wedding, not only because it was Jesse and Diane’s wedding, but it was complete with some unexpected twists!

Diane and Jesse were married at The Old Mill in Rose Valley, PA.  It was a gorgeous, serene outdoor ceremony set against an old stone bridge, gentle stream and lush bamboo gardens.  Diane’s gorgeous wedding gown was light, airy and full, with a stunning crystal sash and beautiful rose design.  Jesse wore a handsome black suit complete with obligatory black PUMA sneakers!  The wedding colors were unique and exciting: bright mint green with eye popping accents of hot pink, as found in Diane’s bridesmaid’s shoes and the flower bouquets.

Another creative touch included the bride and groom’s vows.  They recited their own stirring and emotional sentiments that touched everyone’s hearts.  As always, photos were masterfully taken by Ron Soliman.

After the ceremony, the guests moved indoors to dance and celebrate the marriage of Diane and Jesse.  Diane changed into a knee-length dress and surprised guests with a choreographed dance routine with Jesse!  It was a hit!  And just when we thought it was safe, suddenly there was a great disturbance in the force… Darth Vader appeared at the reception!  Luckily, Jesse, our only hope, heard our cries and a light saber duel ensued with Lord Vader.  Once again, the Jedi Knight used the force for defense and defeated the dark side as we narrowly escaped the evil Galactic Empire.

Thankfully, the party resumed with help from DJ D. Scott from Scratch Weddings, and everyone had a blast late into the evening.  We wish a lifetime of love, happiness… and fun… to Diane and Jesse!
