Susan and Jeff had a day full of love, laughter and celebration.
I photographed her sister Katie’s wedding five years ago, crazy! I ran my first 5k with Katie and Susan in the fall of 2011 too. I’ve kept up with this family for a long time and I was so excited when Susan and Jeff got engaged and contacted me. It was such a pleasure to document another wedding for this family, they are so friendly and inviting. Jeff is a wonderful addition as well!
What a gorgeous day! I’ll let these ladies start if all off right!

A few of Susan’s Details first.
Susan gave her parents each a very sweet handkerchief and had a photo of her pop-pop on her bouquet, they lost him recently so it was a beautiful way to include him on a special day.
Susan’s gift to Jeff.
I love the pointing of the finger to dad seeing Susan for the first time, don’t you cry!!! So sweet.
We did portraits before the ceremony, this is Jeff and Susan’s first look.
West Chester Universities campus proved a beautiful place for pictures.
haha, I have to include this because a lot of times we give a little helping hand to our couples to show them what we want them to do. I especially find it funny here as Pete plays the role of the bride.
And the result with the real bride.
Mighty fine looking couple!!
One very excited bridal party!
Coming up on the TLC crew, they are hiding one of the brides.
Susan applied to be on the show Four Weddings on a suggestion from her venue. She waited until the last minute possible to send in her application because she had this feeling that she might be chosen for the show and she was right!
The film crew was really nice and not intrusive at all to the flow of the day and were very friendly.
Susan’s episode will air on August 29th on TLC. Make sure to watch for it!! You know who I’m rooting for!! Go Susan!!
Susan’s grandma seeing her for the first time. I love these so much.
Being interviewed by TLC!
I loved that they had a special instagram hashtag just for their wedding.
Getting ready to head down the aisle.
cutest bunch of flower girls and ring barer.
Here comes the bride.
Susan has the most infectious smile.
The kiddos did so good during the ceremony.
Susan and Jeff did a special foot washing during the ceremony. It was a very symbolic gesture.
Her brother sang during the foot washing part of the ceremony and I secretly recorded it so that I could use it for the slideshow, there is a link at the bottom of this post.
The cheers and celebrations at this moment were unlike anything I have ever experienced. The church was full and the cheers of joy and love at this very moment gave you shivers with the vibrations that filled the church.
Quite possibly my favorite of the day!
The cake was elegant and beautiful.
Susan’s niece Lucy was having her own conversation during speeches.
Awe and her sister Lucy had a little breakdown but I found this image to be so sweet and so sad at the same time.
Interviewing with the other brides from Four Weddings.
I love that Pete got the spray of cake as Susan shoved it into Jeff’s face.
Katie, Delcan, Emeline and Lucy. You guys have come so far since I shot your wedding long ago! Such and adorable family you now have.
The happiest little girls.
We snuck out for a few more pictures..
This group certainly knows how to party!!!
Sneaking in another bling shot on the Phillies cake…

Susan and Jeff it was a pleasure. I wish you a happy marriage!
