Allison + Matt || The Barn at Silverstone || Philadelphia Wedding Photographer

Allison and Matt inspire us.  They are rays of sunshine with an incredible appreciation for life, love and family.  It's probably no surprise that we were looking forward with great anticipation to their wedding day since we first had them in front of our camera for a downright magical engagement session last fall.  I'm sure it will also be no surprise to hear that their wedding day was just as magical, if not more so.  Please...allow me to show you.

September 24th began as a chilly, cloudy day and exploded into the sunniest celebration that we've seen in a long time.  Starting off their day at the bed + breakfast attached to the Barn at Silverstone, Dave and I were met with some of the most beautiful women (yes, undoubtedly on the outside, but even more on the inside) who led us to the bride and groom.  Once we said our hellos, the flurry of preparation and the making of flower crowns ensued.  After a little fluff here, and a little tuck there, it was time to get the show on the road.  From their emotional first look, a visit from one of the best dogs on the planet and a little twirling pre-ceremony, to one of the most precious ceremonies we've ever seen, more kindness than we could handle, a little twirling post ceremony, the glorious glow of golden hour, a DONUT STATION, and copper accents everywhere, this day was one of our of favorite days to be a part of.

A + M:  Thank you for being exactly who you are, always.  Who you are is something so special- I wish I could bottle it up and take it with me wherever I go.  THANK YOU for sharing your love, your unbelievable families and your immensely creative souls with us.  We love you both and excitedly anticipate the next time we're able to have you in front of our cameras.  <3
