Mary + Avery A Willow Valley Chapel Wedding | Lancaster, PA

Mary + Avery’s wedding day in December was absolutely incredible! This blog post is going up quite a few weeks late because I was in New Zealand + Australia during the weeks following their big day, but I am SO excited to be sharing it today! From a picture-perfect chapel to gold and navy details to fluffy floral bouquets…this wedding was a dream come true!

I traveled to Lancaster, PA for the very first time for Mary + Avery’s wedding + the adorable town was a PERFECT fit for their big day! The Willow Valley Chapel was nestled so beautifully between the hills outside of the hotel where they were getting ready all morning. The early morning overcast slowly disappeared as the sun broke through the clouds just in time for one of the most ADORABLE first looks that I have ever shot! All in all, Mary + Avery’s wedding day could not have been more wonderful. Enjoy some of my favorites!

Mary + Avery: Thank you so much for inviting me into such a special time of your lives! I am so thankful for you + your sweet families + I wish you both the absolute best!
