Anne and Ryan had the most vibrant and sunny Pennsylvania fall day for their wedding! This couple got married at St. Gabriel of the Sorrowful Virgin, and their reception was at the elegant Willow Room. We photographed Anne’s brother’s wedding last year (shout out to Bob and Melissa!) It was the highest compliment that Anne and Ryan saw us in action at Bob and Melissa’s wedding, and asked us to photograph their wedding! Even more so, because Anne’s other brother and wife are outstanding professional photographers- please check out their beautiful work at Trey Thomas Images!
Anne and Ryan are very close with their families- all siblings were a part of their bridal party, and their nieces and nephews were also the ring bearers and flower girls (there were 4 ring bearers and 2 flower girls!) There’s just something sweet and sentimental about closely involving family members on your wedding day. They are the people that will hand you the Kleenex when you start to cry during your vows, and the first people you hug after you walk down the aisle.
Anne and Ryan’s love for each other is apparent and honest. As Ryan’s best man put it in his toast to the couple, they have that “young love” excitement for each other, and you can clearly see this in their interactions together. As we photographed, I saw Ryan’s smile grow at the approach of kissing Anne, and the glitter in Anne’s eyes in response.
