With Emily and Colin, it all started at Strangelove’s in Philly. We first met and started introducing ourselves and talking about what each of us did for a living. Once hearing that I worked at Yards, we went on for probably 45 minutes about different beers we’ve tried and breweries we’ve visited (sorry Mike!). Fast forward a bit, past the engagement shoot (which also featured some craft brews), to their wedding in beautiful Lancaster, PA. Upon hearing that their wedding would be at the Cork Factory, I could not have been more excited for any other wedding. My dad grew up in Lancaster, with a few relatives still living there, and the city has become somewhat of a vacation home to me. To say that I really enjoy visiting is an understatement. Furthermore, the Cork Factory actually used to be home to Kerr Cap & Bottle, a cap and bottle manufacturer that both my grandpa and dad have worked at! I got the opportunity to carry on the family legacy and work in the same building that both of them did…pretty cool I have to say.
Onto the wedding! Emily wasn’t too sure when would be a good time for us to show up, but after talking about the day a bit, she told me that the girls were starting with yoga at 8. I couldn’t miss that! After yoga, I picked the other photographer, Kelsey, up from the train and we made our way to the Cork Factory for makeup. Everyone was so welcoming and we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful venue. The reception was held under a hanging ladder with a breathtaking flower display. Then it was off to cocktail hour, where the staff flipped the room, and a mere hour later the festivities began. We could not speak more highly of these two and hand such and incredible time. They even put up with us pestering them for a shot in the stairwell. We wish you all the best and can’t wait to see you again!
