Meghan and Philips January Wedding
Wedding Season began early for me this year at an Iacocca Hall Wedding, January 2nd. The mother of the bride, Tracy, contacted me about 3-4 weeks before the wedding for my Day Of Coordination Package! I had a lot to do and a short time to do it in, but hey, that’s why they hired me! What made it easy were the vendors I had the privilege of working with! In the Lehigh Valley, we have some of the “BEST” Wedding Vendors in their fields, but enough about that and back to my couple!
Meghan and Philip met and dated in High School. Unfortunately, as happens in high school, they broke up. They were apart for about 6 1/2 years but were always in close touch with one another! When they got back together, they realized it was love and 2 years later decided to make it permanent.
The day started out on the cool side, after an unseasonably warm week. The day began with the bride Meghan, her mom and sister started the day out at Clementines Salon for hair and makeup. The photographer Marissa and her assistant Tracey were phenomenal! I really enjoyed how they took pictures through prisms of a Moravian Star, the effects were really cool. They used many styles of photography, I have never seen a photographer use before, so that was really fascinating. We then proceeded to St. Josephs in Limeport. It was a rural country church and Father Buckley was a great host. What was really neat, was the Christmas tree that held ornaments, the kids had made for years were on it. My bride’s family had their ornament hanging in the tree, which made the day even more special.
The photos after the ceremony, were at Lehigh University. at the Lookout and Iacocca Hall. I am so glad that the light and the weather held out that they were able to get pictures taken out doors!
The Reception was gorgeous, being held at Iacocca Hall, at the top of the mountain where Lehigh University sits. The views on this evening were magnificent from the venue, you can see for miles on a clear night. Bethlehem, Allentown and even Easton were visible! One of the most magnificent views I have ever seen, and I’ve seen a lot.
Special moments of the reception, were the bride dancing with her grandfather, the groom and his friends dressed up as Kiss band members, a fabulous DJ (Wes from Wesley Works), who really kept the party jumping and phenomenal florist (Sara from Allium Floral Designs) who had the venue looking gorgeous with all the lit candles. This really gave the venue a beautiful intimate atmosphere, to the reception.
One of the coolest things about this wedding, was the Stepfather of the Groom, was a childhood friend of mine. The wedding allowed us to catch up with each others lives, when I had a quiet moment during the evening.
What a beautiful Winter Wedding Day it was!
