Manor View Inn - Lancaster, PA Wedding | Samantha and Patrick

Sam + Pat had a beautiful wedding day at Manor View Inn in Lancaster, PA and we were so lucky to be there.  If there is one thing I can say is true of all my clients, it is that they are all so unique and full of personality.  I'm so thankful for this because, for me, it means every wedding is a new adventure and completely unlike the one we just photographed last weekend.  Sam + Pat live up to this trait to a tee.  Each time I had the opportunity to chat with them, I am reminded how full of love they are for each other and how fun they are to be around.  They have a playful love (Pat is ALWAYS making Sam laugh!), but when it came to their wedding day - there was not a dry eye in the house.  Even I was a blubbering mess during the first look!!

The first time I ever spoke with them via Skype, Sam revealed that she spent hours on my blog looking over each session and wedding I photographed (I love this, by the way!!) so I'm extremely  happy to feature their beautiful wedding on the blog today.  Congratulations you guys, I couldn't ask for a more fun couple with more personality!

Thank you to the following vendors for making their day perfect!

A huge thank you to Clare for second shooting and all her amazing help!

All of Sam's details were perfectly matched.  Her Mom even hand stitched all the H's on the front of their invitations.
Even the calmest, most laid back bride can be overwhelmed on a wedding day.  I love how her Mom jumped right in to comfort her.
Sam wanted to have a 'first look' with her Dad before her and Pat had their look. I love the closeness between Sam and her parents.
Meanwhile, Pat is preparing to see Sam..
Definitely the best first look I've seen in a while!
Love the way he's looking at her..
While the guests enjoyed the outside cocktail hour, we grabbed a few more photos and then it was time to celebrate!
 Sam's Dad completely surprised her and changed up their dance!
