Bear Creek Mountain Resort Wedding Photographer: Elise + Shane

Happy Thursday, friends! I’ve mentioned it before, but being invited to photograph weddings for multiple siblings in one family? Well, it’s one of the best compliments ever:) Elise is the younger sister of one of my brides from many years ago (hi Laura!), and is also a NICU nurse at CHOP. I’ve photographed weddings of so many nurses in that unit over the years, and they’re always my favorite!

Elise + Shane were married at Bear Creek Mountain Resort in Allentown, which is a gorgeous venue. Elise is one of the most laid back brides I’ve ever worked with, which made their wedding day so. much. fun! I always feel so lucky to photograph weddings of couples who are so clearly meant to be together, just like Elise + Shane. They just fit….and when they’re together, so much happiness and joy radiates off of them. I absolutely love these two!

I am so excited to share a few of my favorites from Elise + Shane’s wedding below, enjoy the sneak peek! Also view their SLIDESHOW for even more wedding day images:)

First Looks? They’re my favorite:) Even though we were doing all of their portraits after the church ceremony, Elise + Shane still opted for a First Look, which I loved. Having this special moment shared just between the two of you is the best!

The speeches are often my favorite part of a wedding day. Especially when they’re as hilarious as these speeches were. I’ll just hashtag this part #neonyellow…..and anyone who was at the wedding will know what I mean;)
