In Erin and Zack, we have another delightful couple that went to high school together… however these two were not high school sweethearts (although Erin admits that she did have a little crush on Zack)! After college, they ran into each other randomly in the city and that’s when their relationship together began.
Zack has always been there for Erin, and more than ever when sadly, Erin lost her father. And it was important to Zack to include Erin’s father on the day of his marriage proposal and to propose at a place that was very special to her. On the day after Thanksgiving, Zack took Erin to Valley Forge National Park where some of her father’s ashes were spread because he wanted to pay his respects to him as the holiday season was beginning. As they walked toward the location that held the most meaning for her, Zack pulled Erin aside and asked her to marry him. A photographer hiding behind a tree captured the moment as Erin said ‘yes’!
Erin and Zack’s entire wedding event took place in the beautiful country setting of Springton Manor Farm in Glenmoore, Pennsylvania. Erin’s matron of honor and bridesmaids wore pretty peachy-pink floral robes as they were getting ready in the Manor House that morning. And after Erin changed out of her lovely white lace robe and into her gown, she found a quiet space to read her moving love letter from Zack, as the two had exchanged beautiful love letters that each had written earlier.
Zack looked terrific as he wore a bright blue suit, standing apart from his handsome groomsmen dressed in their gray suits for this wonderful outdoor wedding event. And as they finished getting all dolled up and ready, Erin’s bridal party dressed into long, mismatched dresses in various shades of blush and carried such lovely and lush pink and white bouquets from Edgemont Flower Shop.
Erin’s mother helped her put on her beautiful Sarah Seven wedding gown, with a sheer lace deep V bodice, a low V back design and a gorgeous fitted crepe skirt. She wore her beautiful blond hair up in a loose, wispy ponytail and fastened a long veil to the back for the ceremony. And together, she and her mother pinned charms and a photograph of Erin’s father onto her bouquet handle.
Ready for their exciting first look, Zack stood on the country road at their venue and waited for his love to walk up and pinch him on the shoulder. The two were thrilled for sure to see each other for the first time that day, and exchanged sweet kisses before the bridal party arrived via golf cart for their next photo shoot!
We had such a great time filming as the team from Elizabeth Moore Photography took photos of the couple and bridal party. Everyone had so much fun and the pastoral setting was simply sublime. Scroll down and take a look at a couple of wonderful photos from the day that Elizabeth posted on her Facebook page!
Erin’s mother walked her down the aisle for the ceremony which was held under a magnificent shade tree on the farm. It was such a touching, very personalized ceremony with a beautiful message of love. And at the conclusion, it was official… Erin and Zack were pronounced, ‘husband and wife’! Their friends and family then saluted the couple with bubbles to celebrate the newest Mr. & Mrs.
Then, Erin and Zack’s reception began under a gorgeous tent on the property. It was decorated in white, with accents of pink among lush greenery, and had lovely market string lights draped along the tent’s ceiling. When Erin and Zack arrived, they kicked off the evening with a special first dance together.
Erin’s mother provided a beautiful welcome speech and toast to the couple, and a bit later, we were treated to wonderful toasts from Erin’s matron of honor and from Zack’s best man. And everyone was so moved when Zack danced with his mother and Erin danced with her brother before that amazing five-tiered cake from The Master’s Baker was cut.
The party continued well into the evening as their DJ from Lash Entertainment totally rocked the house and kept guests on that dance floor! This was such a fantastic wedding event and we were so honored and thrilled to be a part of capturing it for the sweet newlyweds. Congratulations to Erin and Zack! And to quote a part from one of their toasts that evening, “may your joys be as bright as the morning and your years of happiness, as numerous as the stars in the heavens”.
