Love is the Reason // Michelle + Glenn

We got our first call from Michelle back in early March and thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with her over the phone. Then, due to many busy months of wedding planning, as well as a big move to a new city and a new job, we sadly lost touch.  But happily, Michelle reached out to us again and booked our videography services less than three weeks before the big day!  And we were so thankful that she did!  Michelle and Glenn are such a sweet couple and their almost fall wedding was so delightful.

On the afternoon of the wedding, Michelle and Glenn each got ready in separate suites at Homewood Suites in Newtown, PA.  Michelle wore a gorgeous off the shoulder Galia Lahav princess ball gown with a sweetheart neckline, delicate beading and beautiful glittery floral appliqués all throughout the bodice and waistline.  In the back of her lovely, long wavy hair, she had a long veil fastened for the ceremony and she carried a lush, romantic bouquet in pink and white blooms.

Glenn and his groomsmen wore matching black tuxedos, Glenn standing apart with a classic bow tie while the rest of his party wore traditional black neckties.  And Michelle’s beautiful bridesmaids wore such divine coordinating gowns in shades of lilac, lavender and grape.

Michelle and Glenn held both their ceremony and reception at Northampton Valley Country Club in Richboro, PA.  This beautiful venue is set deep in the countryside of Bucks County and is known for its perfectly manicured grounds, elegant ballrooms and dramatic tree-lined drive.  Michelle and Glenn had their first look there at their venue, where they gazed at each other and shared a sweet kiss before the ceremony was to begin!

With Glenn looking on with tears in his eyes, Michelle walked down the aisle on the arm of both her father and step-father, as they each walked her halfway. We loved how much Glenn was filled with emotion all throughout the ceremony.  Reverend Kent Foster delivered a beautiful message, reminding Michelle, Glenn and their guests that love was the reason for this day.

At the reception, the couple of honor danced a wonderfully choreographed first dance after they were introduced to the cheers of their friends and family!  It was so beautiful to watch.  And we love it when the bride and groom decide on a sweetheart table at the reception.  Michelle and Glenn’s table was decorated beautifully with delicate flowers in pink and white and featured a charming ‘Mr. & Mrs.’ sign.

After the blessing, we were treated to perfect toasts from Michelle’s two maids of honor (her sisters who, yes, are twins!) and from Glenn’s best man.  Then following the first course, the couple danced very special dances to honor their parents as Glenn danced with his mother and Michelle with both her mother and father.  It was so sweet and so touching.  It was also so wonderful to work with Malie and her team at Marie Violet Photography as they photographed the day’s events.

Then, that delectable four-tiered wedding cake with cascading pink and white flowers by Desserts by Design was cut.  Soon, the dance floor was opened to everyone and wow, did they dance the night away!  Wired Up Entertainment totally rocked the house!

In the words of their officiant, on this day, love is the reason Michelle and Glenn “became one, one with hope, one in believing in each other and one in sharing their coming years”.  May these coming years all be filled with happiness and love.  Congratulations to Michelle and Glenn!
