I was super excited to shoot this wedding, not only because Amanda is a good friend of mine, and I am so happy for her! But because she choose a very unique venue for the wedding. Walnut Hill bed and breakfast is located in Donegal, PA and offers the use of their whole property for weddings, including a bed and breakfast with a dining area and bedrooms, another building with rooms, fully furnished, a huge porch attached, a gazebo, and property with beautiful trees overlooking a gorgeous mountain view.
We started the day the usual way, bride getting ready, details, first look with dad. Then we did a super cute first look with Dan. Buster, the dog, was the ring bearer. And we got all the way through the faimily pictures. The threat of rain was always there all day, but it held off until the ceremony started! And it poured! Everyone was scrunched in under the gazebo and kept squishing closer and closer together as the rain got heavier. When the ceremony was over, a few volunteers (MVP's) escorted guests to the main building with large umbrellas. (We never go to a wedding with out about 6 large umbrellas!)
The rain stopped almost immediately after everyone was inside, so we were able to get some great "after the rain" pictures, which made for some amazing lighting.
It's hard for me to describe how amazing everything turned out. Check out the pictures below for a better idea. Unfortunately when I contacted Walnut Hill owners recently, they said they were going to be slowing down in hopes to retire soon, so contact them asap if this is your dream wedding!
