Intimate Backwoods Wedding

I was honored when Heather asked me to photograph her "Intimate Backwoods Wedding." Heather & Jordan are such a fun couple. You could just feel the love they have for each other the entire wedding. To be able to photograph a love so true and deep is one of my favorite parts of my job.

This beautiful ceremony was held at Ridgeview Park in Derry, Pennsylvania. The couple and their bridal party all grew up coming to this camp ground year after year. The bride used one of the family cabins to get ready in. It was such an intimate location. Getting married at a location that has special meaning to you and your fiance add a magical element to your wedding day.

As soon as Heather told me her horse was going to be included in the wedding, I melted. Being an equestrian myself, nothing makes me more excited than being around horses! Not to mention being able to photograph horses in a wedding. Beena (Heather's horse) was dressed for the part and looked absolutely stunning!

Heather & Jordan celebrated their marriage with family and friends at Clems Pavillion in Blairsville, Pennsylvania. They danced their night away with each other and their handsome son. I hope you enjoy this gorgeous wedding.


Bridal Tips:

  • Heather grew her own sunflowers for the wedding. To add a person touch to your wedding decor and keep costs down, try growing your own greens and florals for your decorations. Real flowers really make your wedding so beautiful. How much more when they are grown with love in your own home.
  • Heather & Jordan chose a delicious BBQ for their reception. BBQ buffets are a tasty and budget friendly way to feed a hungry crowd and keep your reception very relaxed and comfortable. WE LOVE BBQ's!
  • Heather & Jordan's wedding showed who they are as individuals and as a couple. Be sure to add elements that show your personality. The Hope's chose a camp where they both grew up for their ceremony. Heather brought along her horse. Jordan changed into jeans for the reception to be relaxed and comfortable. JUST BE YOU! That will make your day so much more special.
