I first met Corinne when I shot her for the November 2012 cover issue of Berks County living magazine. We seem to hit it off rather quickly and by the end of our shoot she told me that if she ever got married she contact me to shoot her wedding. I was so happy when just a few years later I got a message from her telling me that she was engaged and that she wanted me to be her photographer! What a true honor! She told me all about Seth and how they met and how they would be her eventually purchasing a home together – grandmothers home!
The home is a 1930’s Art Deco inspired architectural piece of history. I was extremely excited when she said that it would be the venue for their wedding. Upon my arrival I was blown away by the sheer beauty of Corinne as she waived from the balcony. We shot her bridal images on the same balcony. Beautiful night and a beautiful bride the perfect combination! She emits a light that is reminiscent of old Hollywood elegance that I’ve never seen before. Her hair was perfectly finger waved and swept into an up to that reminded me of Greta Garbo. The gown designed by none other then Bagley Mishka- had beautiful simple embellishments with a gorgeous cowl back. Corinne completed her look with a vintage fascinator.
Uncle Grant gave Corinne a beautiful gift- her grandmothers ring. Truly a timeless gift! When it was time to take pictures of Seth, I found him playing a game of Skittles! Talk about relaxed and cool! His style I can best describe as suave. His navy blue suit paired with a stylish tie and brown shoes with no socks shows the ease of day. Cool, simple and ready to marry the love of his life. The 1st look was amazing! Corinne walked down a slated walkway that I’m sure brought back memories as a little girl. I wonder if she knew that one day she’d be seeing her groom on this same walkway! It was magical!
A gorgeous bouquet made with peonies from her mothers garden and handcrafted by her Uncle Grant ,were in her arms. She walked slowly and gracefully until she reached Seth and they held hands for just a little while. Seth spun around and as you can see – it was all smiles! This set the tone for the rest of the evening. It was sheer perfection! The pergola draped with sheer material ,twinkle lights and floral accents served as the backdrop for the ceremony and family portraits. Soft music played and the bride and groom had a their 1st dance and the lights that once matched the sun during the ceremony, now matched the stars and moon providing a silhouette of Corinne and Seth. How appropriate that the wedding favors were silhouette cutouts of each guest! Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Adams for allowing Ama Photography to be a part of your day it was truly an honor! Blessings to you both!
