Lakehouse Inn - Christine & Scott's Thursday wedding
Wednesday, July 16, 2008 - WeddingsHow unusual it is, but we have never had a wedding on a Thursday before. Because of the July 4th weekend, Christine and Scott decided to take advantage of the holiday weekend, and have their wedding on July 3rd, a Thursday. What a gorgeous day! We had never been to the Lake House Inn in Perkasie, PA before, so we were really excited to get to a new location. We really enjoy going to new locations, as it is a total blank canvas and we get to create and have fun in a new place.
The details of this wonderful day were totally fab, with luscious floral arrangements literally everywhere - they were done by
Murphy & Kline Floral Studio. The staff at the Lakehouse was running around everywhere, making sure everything was perfect. Robyn, the coordinator at the Lakehouse was super helpful, and even gave me some bandaids when I realized that my new wedding day shoes were doing a number on my poor feet. The thing about new shoes for work is that you don't really have a great way of breaking them in, except to just wear them to a wedding. After Christine and Scott had shared their first glimpse, and we had done some portraits of them and their wedding party - I realized that my feet were a-hurtin'! I pulled my one shoe off and had a humongous blister on it. I was glad for Robyn's help. Usually I carry some bandaids in my bag, but I was totally out, so she came to the rescue.
Just before the ceremony, thunderstorm clouds started rolling in and we were a bit worried about the weather. But the good old Wiebner weather luck held out, and the outdoor ceremony went on as planned. It did make for a really dramatic sky, which Joel got a shot of below during the ceremony.
The reception totally rocked! Everyone was all over the dance floor and we were eating it up! Apparently Scott is normally not much of a dancer, but he was tearin' up the floor that night! Christine kept exclaiming that she didn't know who this strange man was. It was pretty funny. Mark and Chris from Synergetic Sounds, seriously had the floor packed all night. They kept the music flowing and people on the floor - they were really great to work with. And for any of you Mark Wahlberg fans out there - Mark is a dead ringer for him!
The night ended with a bit of a 4th of July touch - guests holding sparklers lined the walkway and Christine and Scott took off towards their hideaway inside the Lake House!
This first shot is totally rad - I grabbed it while the girls were getting ready and really had fun playing with the light and mirrors in this room.
