Our 2019 Wedding Season started off with the sweetest couple, Natali & Fidel. We got to know them better late last year at their Engagement/Family Portrait Session and we also photographed their adorable pups at our 2nd Annual BARk in the Studio event.
Fidel raised the bar on the traditional “guys getting ready” part of the day by inviting his Groomsmen to the Barbershop where he works, Diversified Cuts in Hanover, PA. Fidel got his own haircut first by one of the talented Barbers. He then shaped-up a few of his Groomsmen. This Barbershop has a built in “Man Cave” in the back that was a perfect spot for the guys to prep for the main event.
The ladies got their hair & make-up done at Alvarez Styles in Biglerville, PA.
Everyone then met up for the Ceremony at Trinity Lutheran Church in Arendtsville, PA. The church was beautiful, but we were delighted to find an orchard right behind the church and were able to snag some of the Bridal Party’s photos outside before the ceremony began.
The Bride & Groom didn’t want to do a First Look themselves, but the Bride did do one with her Dad. Their reactions were quite emotional and you could definitely see how proud he was of his little girl.
Their Ceremony included a Sand Ceremony and a gift of a special necklace to their Daughter, Ari to welcome her to their Family of 3.
The couple wanted some outdoor photos at the Pennsylvania Monument at the Gettysburg National Military Park, which we were happy to accommodate. The couple got several “Congratulations” cheers from the bystanders while we snapped some photos of the Bride & Groom.
The Reception was held at the Gettysburg Fire Hall and the couple danced the night away with their Family & Friends.
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Ramirez! We had a great time working with you all and hope we can continue to capture your family and furbaby portraits in the years to come!
Here are a few of our favorite photos from their special day.
