Scandia and Mike have a classic style, and chose the newly renovated Ballroom at the Ben for their reception for its architectural elegance. Florals were ivory and peach, and Scandia carried a vintage photo of her grandfather in her bouquet. Scroll down for more vendor credits from this beautiful wedding! Much love to these two <3

liz + zak \\ downingtown, pennsylvana \\ private residence https://rachelpearlmanphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/7/liz-zak-downingtown-pennsylvana-private-residence Liz + Zak enjoyed an incredible backyard wedding at the groom's family home, nestled along the riverbank in Downingtown. A simple white tent with woodsy details and a free-standing ceremony under an archway filled with wildflowers was perfect for this laid back duo! Every part of this wedding was touched by friends and family, down to the florals, which were designed by a family friend. Check out their fun filled day - the ultimate backyard wedding! Thanks to Dan Doran for second shooting this one with me.

ashlin + matt \\ long neck, delaware \\ baywood greens https://rachelpearlmanphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/7/ashlin-matt-long-neck-delaware-baywood-greens Ashlin + Matt's June wedding at Baywood Greens in Long Neck was filled with so many sweet and fun moments; they opted not to do a first look, so Matt saw Ashlin for the first time as she walked down the aisle towards the water. Their outdoor ceremony was officiated by Ashlin's brother in law, and featured several ADORABLE flower girls and ring bearers - what's not to love? Ashlin wore a blush pink gown from Allure, and carried a simple bouquet of white and green florals. Ashlin and Matt have a serious love for the beach, so little details - like glass bottles wrapped in rope used for table numbers - added a personal touch. I especially loved the girls' monogramed clutches, given to them by Ashlin as a thank you. Thanks to Dan Doran and Heather Mazur for shooting alongside me!

I've come to really love this incredible couple and consider them friends, to which I am thankful for! Jamie wanted their day to resemble a classic fairytale, complete with touches of blush, gold and glitter. David signaled James Bond in his dapper tuxedo - and touched the heart of every guest at this wedding when he broke down seeing Jamie walk down the aisle - even after their first look (take note, guys).

I am so grateful that Katrina and Billy brought Katrina's grandfather's vintage bike to our second stop at Terrain at Styers; Cottage Flowers designed a fragrant bouquet for Katrina, which sat perfectly in an old wooden bike basket. Don't even get me started on Katrina's vintage round-cut diamond, which is jaw dropping. K + B are getting married at Union Trust on memorial day of next year, and it's sure to be an incredible event. Much love to this special duo who have quickly won me over!

sydney + tim \\ new york spring wedding \\ montclair golf club https://rachelpearlmanphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/4/sydney-tim-new-york-spring-wedding-montclair-country-club Sydney + Tim

If you've ever wondered what tulle skirts for your bridesmaids might look like, take inspiration from Sydney and Tim's classic and romantic New York City wedding. Due to inclement weather for the first part of the day, we spent a few hours in the Empire Suite of the Carlyle, which boasted the most incredible views of Central Park. The threat of rain cleared up just as we made our way outside the hotel for portraits before a ceremony at St. James Episcopal Church on Madison Ave. The most amazing sunset was the perfect backdrop for evening portraits on the green on Montclair Golf Club! Even though their wedding was formal, Syd and Tim wanted dinner and dancing to be intimate and free-flowing, surprising guests with one special formality - a choreographed swing dance that was incredible! I loved spending the day with this happy party, and cherish the friendship that I formed with Sydney and Tim. Much love to this beautiful couple, who reside in New York City and spent their honeymoon in Grand Cayman <3

just married: julianne + andrew: late fall stone harbor wedding https://rachelpearlmanphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/12/just-married-julianne-andrew-late-fall-stone-harbor-wedding When Julianne and Andrew were introduced by Jules' best friend nearly 3 years ago, they discovered that they were from the same home town, had many mutual friends but had somehow never crossed paths. After Andrew proposed, they decided that the coastal chic Reeds Hotel in Stone Harbor would be the perfect venue for their late Fall wedding. So many romantic details, including paper goods by Shine Wedding Invitations and florals by Pink Dahlia Vintage, created an elegant semi-formal backdrop for this gorgeous couple.

just married: theresa + brendan: colorful and love filled country club wedding https://rachelpearlmanphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/10/just-married-theresa-brendan-colorful-and-love-filled-country-club-wedding Every wedding is filled with emotion, tears and laughter, but Theresa and Brendan's day will always hold a special place in my heart. These two are an incredible testimony to the power and strength of family and friends, and as their photographer, it was amazing to be a part of it all. Theresa and her ladies got ready at a family home, and shared champagne outdoors prior to leaving for the ceremony. Theresa and Brendan love spending time down the shore in warm weather, so bright turquoise and cheery yellow were chosen to set the tone for the evening. An emotional first look was followed by formal portraits and a ceremony overlooking the green. Brendan teared up when he watched Theresa walk down the aisle by her two brothers, and the two were pronounced husband and wife as the sun set behind them. I met Theresa through her cousins - you might recognize a few of them in the dancing photos :). Thanking Theresa and Brendan for welcoming me into their big day. Love you both, and many years of happiness! Special thanks to Alex Schon for second shooting and helping me dodge golf balls.

just married : angeline + jason : casual elegance at the whitebrier https://rachelpearlmanphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/10/just-married-angeline-jason-casual-elegance-at-the-whitebrier When Angeline told me that her wedding to Jason would be a laid back beach affair at the Whitebrier, a popular restaurant in Avalon, I was thrilled to see it all come together. For this couple who met down the shore (The Princeton), decor would be a dose of modern meets rustic, with a beachy twist of course. Starfish, shell and driftwood accents were met with the romance of late Summer florals and greenery. Angeline's Nicole Miller gown was simple but perfect; her sisters wore mint gowns with a similiar neckline. My favorite moments were Angeline and her sisters sharing a snuggly moment with the family dogs, and bridal portraits on the beach of bride and groom. Even though Angeline and Jason's wedding day was stormy and wet, they both embraced the weather wholeheartedly for the sake of photos, and I love them for that. The newlyweds didn't want guests to feel tied down to the normal formalities of a traditional sit-down dinner, so they opted for a free range buffet, allowing guests to mingle throughout the evening. They shared a first dance surrounded by almost 200 people in the Whitebrier's Mermaid Bar and enjoyed an after party at where else, The Princeton. Congrats to the beautiful Angeline and Jason!! <3

just married: meg + jon : modern nautical wedding in avalon https://rachelpearlmanphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/10/just-married-meg-jon-modern-nautical-wedding-in-avalon A few years ago, I did a family session in Avalon and immediately fell in love with the Diamond girls, Katie and Meg. Fast forward a few summers later (and one engagement!), I headed to the Windrift in Avalon to capture Meg's wedding day. Fittingly enough, it was extremely windy - which made for dramatic beach shots and I am grateful to Meg and Jon for allowing me to drag them onto the beach, where they had to block the whipping sand from their eyes (seriously, I thank you guys a million times!). Thankfully the Windrift has a tented space on their roof, where we captured some gorgeous portraits prior to the ceremony. Meg is very laid back, and opted for a neutral palate for bridal party and florals that already complimented the venue's dining room. She carried a cheery bouquet of pink and coral roses that popped with her bright lip color and looked drop.dead.gorgeous. Right before walking down the aisle, Meg and Katie sprayed their bouquets with perfume from their beloved, late Grandmother. With no first look, Jon waited for Meg under the intimate white tent, surrounded by a crowd of family and friends.  What I love most about Meg is her incredible smile and enthusiasm, and Jon is one of the most kind grooms I've worked with. I sincerely cherished our time together on their wedding day. Congrats to this incredible couple, who I am happy to call friends of mine!
