Matt and Renee's decade long courtship was celebrated with a wedding at Skytop Lodge. It was a calm 45 degree December afternoon and we made our way out to the Indian Ladder Falls through the tall pines after a ceremony at St. Mary's church in Lake Ariel, PA. We even caught a great sunset from the roof of Skytop Lodge!

Skytop Lodge is festively decorated for the holiday season and we took full advantage of the gingerbread house and carolers while photographing in the grand lobby. Cocktails followed just outside the Evergreen ballroom and DJ Marquis led the way for a dance filled reception.

Outdoor Autumn Stone Hedge Wedding

Natalie + William Wedding Day

Bill and Natalie were fortunate to have a warm autumn wedding day. It was a perfect day to exchange their vows in front of family and friends, enveloped by a warm breeze and all the colors in the captivating fall foliage.

The lovely outdoor ceremony was held on an immaculate hill overlooking Stone Hedge Golf Course’s meticulously manicured grounds and the majestic view of the Endless Mountains. After a lively and energetic session of family photos, the wedding party jumped on golf carts and zipped around posing away for photos before the sunlight disappeared into the mountains, and the clinks of ice and cocktail glasses got louder.  Tony Piazza Entertainment provided a festive vibe that kept people on the dance floor throughout the night.

By the end of the memorable reception, Natalie and Bill were leaving the party on a high note; killing that last dance, running through a tunnel of sparkles, and launching the sky lantern before jumping into the limo. Away they go! But, I couldn’t help but see a long trail of blessing following that limo, to wherever they go on this new life adventure.  

Congratulations Bill and Natalie!

Whimsical Fiorelli's Wedding

Molly + Sean Wedding Day

So I got out of the car to walk into the bride's home and I look up and there is their neighbor Jay who I went to Ithaca College with in New York. I also photographed his wedding way back. I walk into the home of the bride and sure enough their next door neighbor Laura pops in to say hi, we went to grade school together. This is all in a part of Scranton I never set foot in. Molly's father and I lamented the property tax situation and the wedding day began.

Just minutes away the ceremony was performed at St. Ann's Basilica. As I ascended the back stairway I found myself amongst the music and surrounded by the pipes of the organ. Jeff Leas an accomplished trumpet player popped into view. Before heading downtown we made some family photographs in front of the basilica. We worked our way around Courthouse Square in the Electric City before heading up the valley to Fiorelli's. 

DJ Marquis set the scene and the celebration of the wedding kicked into high gear! They had a really cool slow-motion photo booth which had everyone howling.
