Chelsea & Paul’s Summer Wedding at Stambaugh and Avalon Inn & Resort

Chelsea and Paul were so much fun to work with from the very beginning! We shot their engagement last fall and I’ve been looking forward to their wedding day ever since! 

Taylor Mostoller made the bride and her maids glasses for the big day, and they came out great!

Chelsea got her Sottero & Midgley gown from Stephanie Leigh Bridal in Girard, and just wait until you see the back!

How handsome is the groom in his tux from Rondinelli.

Green’s Floral Shop  was the florist, and did a beautiful job as always!

The Makeup Boutique and Pierre’s Salon did the brides hair and makeup. Way to go with those lashes Jen!

The bride and groom chose the Christman room in Stambaugh Auditorium for their ceremony. Accordia Music played beautiful melodies as the bride walked towards her groom.

The ceremony was short and sweet, and ended with bubbles on the grand staircase.

The bridesmaids soft peach gowns were from Davids Bridal. They complimented the bride perfectly!

Two of my favorite shots from the day! Did I mention Andy Kunkel and his team? Andy was the videographer, and I can’t wait to see the finished product!

We had such beautiful light to work with on Saturday!

After a short ride to The Avalon Inn and Resort we took to the golf course on carts for a few pictures during cocktail hour. I just love all the light leaks coming through the trees!

Green’s did a fabulous job decorating the hall…. and those garden roses!!

Kim’s Confections delivered this perfectly simple yet elegant cake. It’s the little things like the roses and candles around the cake that make your day even more beautiful!

Chelsea and Paul’s first dance as husband and wife.

Guests danced the night away as Marco Mediate turned the volume to high!

 

I wanted to do something a little different for Chelsea and Paul’s night shot… so we took note of this beautiful collection of wine! I just love the blue LED lights!

I’ve seen many photographers shoot rings in champagne glasses, but I wanted to make it my own. So….. in the roses went, with some beautiful ambient light flashing behind. I’m so happy with the way it turned out. It might even be my new favorite!

With the help of Avalon’s manager Jimmy, we were able to find the perfect spot for one last shot.  How amazing is this green leather bench. Every time I shoot a wedding at this lovely location I find a new spot to take pictures!

Chelsea and Paul,

Thank you so much for letting Tara and I spend the day with you! I can’t explain how much it means to me to have you choose us and make us feel so welcome!

The best is yet to come!

Cheers! Natalie
