I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Ben and the rest of the Wolfe family (pack) for a several years now. So when Ben met Courtney, it would only be a matter of time until Courtney and I also became acquainted with one another. I remember her flying in from Illinois pretty regularly, and when she would visit, a group of us would get together and “hit the town” to show her what our neck of the woods was all about – Amish, Wawa, the Phillies and Eagles and, of course, cheesesteaks. As most long distance relationships go, Ben and Courtney took turns taking trips to visit each other…but that soon got old. Needless to say, Courtney was Mrs. Right for Ben all along, because she ended up making the decision to take the leap and move to Pennsylvania to start a new chapter of her life – a life with Ben – which would soon become a lifelong story. A part of me would like to think that this decision came as a direct result of all the memorable times we would have hitting the town, but we all know it was because of Ben (and still partially for that reason too). When Ben and Courtney approached me about potentially shooting their special day for them in Downingtown (my hometown), my immediate thought was OBVIOUSLY! These two know how to make each other extremely happy, but more than that, they also know how to also make everyone around them extremely happy. Not to mention, they also know how to throw a HELL of a good party!
October 1st was a day full of cloudy skies and lots of emotion. Nerves were setting in regarding the weather, but the amount of love and joy shared amongst the families and friends that were gathered together to celebrate Ben and Courtney brought enough light through the clouds to make the day absolutely perfect.
Here is just a taste of their day. Enjoy!
Ben and Courtney, thank you SO much for choosing me to capture these forever moments with you and allowing me to be there to celebrate your new life together. I wish you both nothing but the best of times ahead. Congratulations again! I love you both.
I would also like to give a HUGE thank you to my old friend Hayley Bitner (Facebook | Website) for being by my side and helping me capture all of the magic throughout the day. I couldn’t have done it without your help, support and remarkable talent. You’re the best!
