Welcome to 2018! We had so many awesome weddings in 2017 and we’ll be bringing you the “Best of 2017” blog post soon. But before I can do that, I want to show you Andy and Samantha’s wedding at Excelsior -Which is a “best of” in it’s own right. Andy and Samantha are two of the kindest people we worked with last year and it was such a joy being a part of their wedding. Shooting at Excelsior for the first time was also a treat. Excelsior is the perfect balance of modern and antique; rustic and classy; and uncontrived uniqueness. You’ll just have to see it to know what I am talking about. I don’t think there is anything else like it in Lancaster. Andy and Samantha’s day there was perfect too. We joined up with Sam and her ladies in the morning for prep in the bridal suit, and then Andy and I went up to the top floor for some finishing touches. Andy and Samantha opted to not see each other until the ceremony, so when her and her dad made their way down the steps for the first time, it was a dramatic entrance for sure. They had a beautiful ceremony surrounded by their closest friends and family, and then it was time to move down to the catacombs for cocktail hour. The bridal party and family joined us outside in the courtyard for some pictures before getting back to the rest of the guests. Then the four of us wandered around for a while taking advantage of the beautiful venue, inside and out. The official reception started shortly after we finished up and it was a party until the end of the night. 3 West Productions got everyone on their feet and Jimmy Duffy Catering kept everyone well fed all night long. The day was perfect!
Andy and Samantha, thanks for being awesome! You both were awesome to work with and we wish you the absolute best. Enjoy a handful of our favorite images from the day. If you’re planning a wedding at Excelsior and would like to talk about having us be a part of your big day, we would love to hear from you. You can get in touch HERE
