This is a story well over five years in the making. Priscilla and Steven met in college, and although they weren’t in a relationship then or immediately afterwards, they reunited three years later and felt a strong connection. Continuing for a couple of years in a long-distance relationship, their bond grew even stronger. Their love story added a new chapter on August 24th when they were joined together in marriage.
Priscilla and Steven were all smiles all day! Priscilla’s beautiful wedding gown had just the right amount of sparkle (one of Priscilla’s favorite things). It was shimmering and form-fitting with cap-sleeves and lace from head to toe. Stunning!
Their wedding ceremony took place outside at Bear Creek Mountain Resort and Conference Center in Macungie, PA. It’s a handsome, rustic lodge and ski resort in the mountains of Lehigh County. Jackie & Daughter Flower Shop created graceful bouquets and decorated the venue in delightful swags and floral arrangements in deep purples, lavenders and teals. Their theme color was purple, with Priscilla’s bridesmaids in purple knee-length satin dresses. At the ceremony’s conclusion, doves were released by Say it with Doves, an animal-friendly company who trains and cares for doves for release at events. These doves will fly home after their release using their homing abilities, and can return home from up to 50 miles away!
We could see that Priscilla paid a great deal of attention to details and had every angle covered for her wedding day! She made the canvas signs on the easels outside the Mountain Ballroom at Bear Creek as well as many other decorations and favors at the wedding. She even made the ‘Here She Comes’ sign that her little nephew carried down the aisle to announce her arrival to the ceremony! And to encourage her guests to have fun and dance at the reception, she asked them to write down their song requests ahead of time. What a wonderful idea!
The reception followed in the Mountain Ballroom at Bear Creek Mountain Resort. Celebrations Disc Jockey and Photography pulled double-duty in providing the perfect music for the affair and capturing photos of the wedding day. It was wonderful that the guests were all staying at the resort as they were free to party well into the evening.
It was a marvelous wedding and such a joy to film the love that Priscilla and Steven have for each other. A new and sweet chapter of their lives has just begun… We wish them all the happiness in the world. Congratulations to Priscilla and Steven!
