Wedding at Rockford Plantation // Lancaster, PA // Matt & Emily

May 11, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Matt & Emily's wedding was held at the historic Rockford Plantation. We LOVE this location because first off, it's gorgeous! And secondly, it's only like 5 minutes away from us!  & we could not have asked for a better day... the weather was beautiful, everyone was so laid back, and we couldn't believe how smoothly everything went...that NEVER happens. We hope that it went just as smoothly for Matt & Emily as it did for us :) 

We started their wedding day right off with the "First Look."

Matt looks pretty happy :) 

We love first looks because it gives us more time for photos (yay!) 

Such a good looking couple! 


Just the guys...I remember for this shot, I had like 3 pairs of sunglasses on top of my head because I didn't want the guys to have them on in the photo, and I didn't want to misplace them, so I just piled them all on top of my head, haha! 


& here's the Man of Honor, bridesmaids, and flower girls...I loved their color scheme!!


Full bridal party - Wooooo! :)


So, normally we capture some getting ready & detail shots, but Emily didn't really want to bother with that, so she didn't have any specific requests of detail shots that she wanted me to capture...UNTIL she saw the flowers! She emailed me the day before the wedding and said that she knew that she told me she didn't really want any detail shots, however, she just saw the flowers and they were GORGEOUS and that we must get some photos of them! When we saw them in person, we totally understood her excitement and awe :)  

Check out these gorgeous flowers for yourself by Splints & Daisies...

Some group shots over at the barn

This group was SO great to work with - and they do the best fake laughing I have ever seen!!! hahaha :)


Now some shots of just the bride + groom...


Aren't these two the cutest?!?


Ceremony time!

I loved watching Emily smiling/laughing the whole way day the aisle

This is my favorite part of the ceremony...capturing the groom's reaction as his bride comes down the aisle <3
