Kelly and Derek at Stokesay Castle
Saturday, August 11, 2012 - WeddingsWell I have to say, Kelly and Derek were sure fun to work with. We had no problem getting great expressions from either of them on their July 27th wedding at Stokesay Castle in Reading, PA. Kelly and Derek actually met in South Africa (where Derek is from) while she was studying abroad for her veterinary program at Penn State. Needless to say they are both huge animal lovers. Apparently, Kelly was leaning out of a helicopter while trying to tranq some large game, and Derek was holding on to her so she didn't fall out. I think that is right, but how romantic! So as a surprise, Kelly's mom hired a horse and carriage for the wedding day, to whisk her in to the ceremony, and then take her and Derek for a ride afterwards. Kelly was speechless when she saw the horse, and burst into tears! Score one for mom!
After the ceremony, we spent a short time with our couple and wedding party around the grounds, but later also went up on the roof of the castle with Kelly and Derek to grab a few more shots at dusk. I am sure these two will have a long happy fun-filled marriage. You can just see it in their faces!
