Shannon & Stephen
THE LAKE HOUSE INN, PERKASIE, pA
I've done several waterfront weddings over the years, and all of them make things feel a bit more special. Almost like you're on vacation or something. The Lake House Inn is nestled right on Lake Nockamixon in Bucks County, PA. Every wedding film has a theme. Sometimes it's a bit harder to find, but I tried to revolve this one around the lake - kayakers on the water, sounds of the small waves, and the feeling that you somewhere serene on a warm October day.
Shannon and Stephen are some of the nicest, most laid-back people you'll meet. Leading up to their wedding, I'd talk to Shannon through Instagram and we'd chat about schedule ideas, their nervousness for the choreographed first dance, and their dog Mina. Martina and I even drove to the venue before hand to take a look around. So, a lot of excitement for this one.
Their wedding day was even better that expected. It took a bit of a slower vibe - which was SO refreshing to what "normally" occurs, and I think contributed to the soothing lakeside vibes. In the morning, we had so much time to get everything we needed - first looks, gifts, private vows. Later, after a cocktail hour complete with jazz musicians and craft beer tasting, they had their highly anticipated choreographed first dance (which they CRUSHED), Stephen's Dad gave a speech, and we went outside after dark for some nighttime pictures with the venue lit up with candles and lanterns. You know - all the makings of a good wedding film.
We also made some new friendors - Ashlee Mintz and Carly Totten - two great professionals who we worked alongside all day.
Thanks everyone, for making this one so special for us!
