{Heather & Joshua}

Heather and Josh’s love story began with a serendipitous match on the dating site, Bumble, back on March 5, 2020. Despite the challenges thrown their way, including a pandemic-induced delay in their first meeting, their connection persevered. And when the time finally came for them to meet face-to-face, it was as if the universe couldn’t contain their chemistry—fireworks were set off in an instant!

Their first kiss, a moment etched in their memories, took place in Heather’s living room, the very spot where their love story unfolded. Little did they know that this cozy haven would become a significant place for them in the years to come.

Fast forward to March 23, 2022, a day that would forever be cherished. With their living room as the backdrop, Josh got down on one knee and proposed to Heather. It was a full-circle moment, brimming with love and nostalgia, as they embarked on the next chapter of their journey together.

Heather and Josh’s love story continued to unfold, leading them to a grand celebration on May 20, 2023, at the enchanting Allenberry Resort in Boiling Springs, PA. This place had it all—a magnificent mansion for capturing the bride’s stunning transformation and sprawling grounds for picture-perfect portraits. The joyous atmosphere was elevated by the lively bridesmaids, creating an epic confetti champagne moment!

Despite the weather forecast predicting storms during the ceremony, Heather and Josh decided to move their vows indoors to the charming Carriage House. It was a relief for everyone involved! And miraculously, right after the ceremony, we were blessed with a short window of rain-free skies, allowing us to capture breathtaking outdoor shots. The lush surroundings and vibrant greens added an extra touch of magic to their special day.

As the rain eventually arrived, it failed to dampen the spirits of the newlyweds and their loved ones. We sought refuge on the covered porch, where we captured delightful family and bridal portraits. The talented DJ Chad from 3 West Productions kept the energy soaring, ensuring that everyone danced the night away.

And just when we thought the fun couldn’t get any better, Heather had a brilliant idea for a nighttime bubble exit. It was a first for me, but let me tell you, it exceeded all expectations! The bubbles sparkled and danced in the night sky, creating a whimsical and unforgettable moment that added an extra sprinkle of joy to the celebration.

Heather and Josh’s wedding day was a true adventure, filled with laughter, surprises, and an abundance of love. It was an absolute honor to be a part of such a joyous occasion, capturing the remarkable moments that will forever be cherished in their remarkable love story.

Thanks to all the fabulous vendors who helped make this wedding so amazing!
