This past May, I was lucky enough to be the wedding photographer for Katie and Zac’s beautiful wedding ceremony at St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church with a reception at the Chadwick in Wexford, PA. This couple was just so much fun to photograph and I had a blast being a part of their wedding day!

Katie & Zac’s Chadwick Wedding

It was a beautiful spring day for Katie and Zac’s wedding. The day began with the bride and groom getting ready separately at St Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church in Chicora. I loved how the springtime sunlight streamed into the windows as Katie got ready. The light was bright, but nothing outshone Katie’s smile. She looked stunning as she prepared for her wedding day! After some sentimental getting ready photographs with her parents and her bridesmaids, it was time for the wedding ceremony.

The congregation was filled with love as Zac and Katie were wed. I loved the smiles and the excitement on everyone’s faces all throughout their wedding service. After they were announced as husband and wife, I stole Katie and Zac away for some formal wedding portraits in the church and then some outside on the road. Some of my favorite portraits are of the bride and groom out in the grassy field with a big wide expanse of springtime blue sky!

The Chadwick provided the perfect backdrop for Katie and Zac’s wedding reception. I love how they made sure to insert their own personalized touches to the reception decorations. Katie shared, “Zac proposed with a rubber duck from Duck donuts in VA Beach while we were on vacation. He didn’t have a ring, but I didn’t care. I knew I wanted to spend my life with him.” To honor that moment, Katie and Zac carried that rubber duck theme through their reception! I thought that the cake topper was especially adorable.

When I asked the bride and groom what advice they would share with other Pennsylvania couples planning a wedding, they shared: “This day is about you and your spouse. Take time to enjoy each other during the day. Don’t stress over small details. Don’t worry if something goes wrong, no one will ever know.”

Katie and Zac, I loved being your wedding photographer. Your Chadwick wedding was so full of love and happiness that it was such a pleasure to photograph. Thank you for asking me to be a part of your wedding day!
