Krista and Gary chose HollyHedge Estate in New Hope, Pennsylvania as the location for their wedding. HollyHedge Estate is located in the heart of scenic Bucks County, and a beautiful venue if you are planning a rustic, sophisticated wedding. Krista and Gary met back in high school. They dated for a while, before going their separate ways. Gary is in the military, and was deployed to Iraq, while Krista continued living in New Jersey. Later on though, the couple reconnected and have been together ever since! Like most wedding days, their day started off with getting ready photos at the venue. I went to photograph Krista and her girls while my second shooter, Veronica, photographed the groom and groomsmen getting ready. Krista and her girls looked absolutely stunning. Krista chose a gorgeous mermaid Allure gown and Gary wore a gray suit.
The bride and groom opted not to do a first look, so after their getting ready photos, we headed to the courtyard for their ceremony. Surrounded by some of their closest family and friends, the couple exchanged vows in front of the estate barn. They had a gorgeous late afternoon ceremony, followed by cocktail hour, family and bridal party photos.
For their reception, the bride and groom shared their first dance to the song entitled “Greatest Love Story” by Lanco. The bride shared a dance with her dad, and the maids of honor and the best man both gave their toasts. The bride, groom and I snuck out from the reception for a few minutes to take a few evening photos in the courtyard. When we returned inside, Krista and Gary cut their cake and guests enjoyed a little cupcake bar. At the end of the night, with the help of their DJ, we took a large group photo of everyone. Below is a sneak peek from their wedding day!
