Jordan & Nate's 'Up' Inspired Wedding {Friday 5.18.12} Hershey, PA Wedding Photographers

When Jordan called me a year and a half ago and asked if I would photograph her wedding I was stoked! At the time, I had no idea how beautiful and whimsical her vision was. Jordan & Nate's wedding was perfect! The decor was inviting, the food was delicious and the company was awesome. Couldn't ask for a better wedding! :-) Jordan & I graduated from the Antonelli Institute for Art & Photography in 2008 but it wasn't until she started her wedding planning that we got to know each other better. When I went to New York last June for a wedding, her and Nate met me in Franklin Square (where my grandparent's live) and we spent a morning at Jones Beach. It was a beautiful day for an engagement session! Check out their Portraits here.

The day started at The Red Umbrella Bed & Breakfast in Grantville, PA, just a short drive from Hershey, PA (yup, where they make chocolate!) and then we headed to the Parrish, where Jordan & Nate tied the knot around 1:00 pm. At 5:00 they had a sweet, outdoor vow renewal for the rest of their guests overlooking a pond, at a gorgeous property just down the road from the B&B. It was so unique and quaint. Everyone was enjoying their glass of wine and yummy hor dourves as the couple spoke their vows. It was lovely. Afterward,  everyone headed up to the loft in the Barn and enjoyed the biggest salad & dessert bar I have ever seen, an incredible band and lots of laughs. :-)

I am so very grateful that the Fancovic's (ah! they're married now), had me apart of their day and went the extra mile to have me there (all the way from Missouri) to share in the fun & festivities! Congrats lovebirds! Thank you so much! xo christine

This is a wedding film unlike any other we've ever produced. Jordan, Nate and I (Natalie) have known each other since we were kids and though that undoubtedly added to the special-ness of their wedding film experience, what made it unprecedented was how long of a journey I was able to spend with them behind my lens. Jordan & Nate's wedding film is a culmination of 9 months of filming, from an engagement session through married life at their adorable, mint green home that they're rehabbing together. It was a beautiful process to capture them through so many milestones of their life together not to mention was it so fitting with the theme of their wedding (based around Disney Pixar's "Up"). Over the years, we have been so incredibly lucky to capture moments and words so fitting to the stories of our couples and Jordan and Nate's ceremonies were no exception. God sent a powerful and humbling message to Jordan and Nate (and all of us) through their wedding day and we are proud to be sharing it. (Be sure to stick it out until the end.)
