Amber & Steve's Wedding
Warrington Country Club
The wooden partition came apart slightly, and though Steve couldn’t yet see his gorgeous bride as she was about to walk down the aisle, those of us in the back of the church got a glance at Amber. She was beaming with happiness. No trace of nervousness, at least not in any way apparent. Just excitement and joy. Amber and Steve set out to enjoy every moment of their big day, and so they did. Spending the morning finishing last minute preparations, having some whisky and champagne, playing cards with the bridal party, they did not want to make the day stressful or rushed, and so they just let is flow, taking it all in. Once Steve did see Amber his face, too, lit up with excitement. There she was, his bride, walking towards him on their wedding day... After the beautiful and intimate ceremony and family photos at the church, we all headed over to the place where Steve proposed to Amber more than a year ago – the Fonthill Castle in Doylestown. Eccentric and beautiful any time of the year, the historic home of a local tilemaker and collector Henry Mercer, this place was purely magical on the snowy March afternoon. Blue skies and bare trees just added to the crispness of the air, and we could capture in our photographs the freshness of the winter day, new marriage, and clear bliss that radiated from the couple and the bridal party. The reception festivities took us to newly renovated Warrington Country Club, where we were taken back by the remodeled ballroom that now featured new ceiling, uplighting, and bigger space. The party took off and the celebration mood continued into the evening – packed dance floor, food, drinks, toasts, friends, and the love of two people, ready to start their new life together. Back at the church, before the partition opened, Amber smiled, thinking of what lay ahead – this day, this evening, but also, a lifetime beyond the wedding day – joy, happiness, love, and each and every day, enjoyed, just like her wedding day, one moment at a time. Congratulations to Steve and Amber!
