Wagner & Ashlea | A Northeast Pennsylvania Wedding Part 1

It was an unusually warm morning for the month of November in Pennsylvania.  Sunbeams shone through the window awakening the day and just slightly revealing the beauty that was about to unfold.  I awoke in my Grandmothers home to the sweet noise of my sister’s infectious laughter as she began to get her hair done for the day.  Soon her friends and my other sisters joined in the morning preparations and the whole house was a buzz with curling irons and hairspray, makeup and muffins.  It was a warm and comforting time.  Four generations present all  getting ready in the home of the woman who started it all.  What precious memories.

Just 5 minutes away the Groom’s hand shook a little as he buttoned his vest and clasped his watch.  Today was finally the day she would become his.  In the midst of his closest friends, his smile beamed, but his nerves were ever present.  In less than half an hour he would be heading to meet his Bride.

The light grew brighter as the time grew later.   Soon curls were in place and necklaces were donned.  Ashlea stepped into her gown of lace and chiffon as those closest to her watched the beauty of the day all come together in one beaming Bride. The hands that so lovingly cared for her for the last 21 years zipped up the delicate fabric and set her pearls in place for the very last time before she would give her daughter over to the care of another…

The forest seemed to beam with excitement as the time for the sweet reveal became closer.  Wagner stood tall hearing his Bride rustle through the leaves behind him.  With her hands clinging to a black leather bound journal, Ashlea slowly made her way to her Groom before stopping just shy of his back.  With slightly cold fingers and a pounding heart, she read her heart to him.  She unraveled the last entry of a 100 day journal she had poured over as a gift to her Beloved.  The 100th day had finally arrived.  The waiting was over. The last entry had been written and now lovingly shared.  It was time for the Groom to turn around and take in HIS beautiful Bride…

The sun continued to burn brighter as the noonday appeared.  Friends and family joined in the laughter as the celebration of Ashlea and Wagner’s union continued.  Sweeps of pink blew in the gentle breeze. Groomsmen in navy blue stood erect and Bridesmaids grabbed their delicate bouquets. Standing, walking, talking, and jumping before heading on to the church where Ashlea & Wagner would finally officially become one…heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-89heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-94heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-90heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-106heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-109heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-100heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-96heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-122heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-105heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-93heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-123heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-98heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-97heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-107heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-101heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-120heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-108heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-121heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-103heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-128heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-99heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-124heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-126heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-127heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-130heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-131heitnerweddingcourtneybondphotography-132
