kathryn + casey | vibrant fall wyndridge farm craft brewery wedding

These lovebirds are absolutely beautiful people inside and out; I’m SO excited to share Kathryn and Casey’s vibrant fall wedding day with you! Their September wedding date held so much meaning because Kathryn’s grandparents celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary at that same time!!!

You need to read on to learn about the prominent piece of her wedding jewelry that her grandma made over the course of 20+ years… it made me tear up when I first heard it, such a beautiful way to incorporate a tangible family heirloom over the years!

But first, a quick recap of how their love story began…

Having been together since high school, Kathryn + Casey officially started dating in 2009 over Qdoba and Blockbuster (movie + mexican food?! ...my kind of date night!) and have bonded over a love of being outdoors, part of a close knit family, their furbaby, Cooper (who may or may not have his own Insta...) and spending summer nights enjoying a cold beer outside on the patio with cafe string lights above. These are my kind of people!!!

When Kathryn told me their wedding venue was going to be at Wyndridge Farms in Dallastown, PA, I knew it was THE perfect place for them… I also did a happy dance because of all of the unique and beautiful backdrops I knew we’d have for portraits: a modern red barn, metal brewery architecture, idyllic rolling hills and an incredible outdoor chapel to start!

The back of Kathryn’s Essense of Australia wedding dress was exquisite and fit her perfectly… I love how all the color and texture in her elegant garden-inspired bouquet compliments the dress too! You’ll also notice all of the hand-lettered calligraphy and signage throughout the ceremony, reception and paper goods that the bride did herself!! I’m honestly in awe of the vision Kathryn had and how beautifully it all came together.

Side note: one of our previous Urban Row brides is the bridesmaid buttoning Kathryn’s dress in the photo below (hi Abby!) and one of our future Urban Row brides is also a bridesmaid (hi Marissa!)… all 3 of these ladies share a love of dogs like I do and have included their #urbanrowpup in either their wedding or engagement photos!

Venues that have separate and spacious getting ready suites for both the bride AND the groom are hard to come by, but you can find them here! Wyndridge maximizes the natural light that pours into each space so each side of the bridal party has a ton of room to relax, prep and look their best in, not to mention easy access to outside AND the upstairs reception space… and DOG FRIENDLY facilities!!!

Hello, Cooper… the BEST golden doodle dog of honor there ever was!

Kathryn’s grandma started her pearl necklace the day she was born and added a pearl to it on each birthday, culminating in the final pearl in the strand for her wedding day…! Hello meaningful bridal jewelry, I want more of you! (*hint, hint, future Urban Row brides*)

This might be my favorite image of the first half of the day mainly because every single person is so full of genuine joy… and those colorful bouquets completely POP against the mix of dusty blue and green Show Me Your Mumu bridesmaid dresses!

stone manor b&b | virginia wedding photographer | keri + patrick

While on opposing trivia teams, Keri and Patrick met at the Ottobar, a neighborhood bar not far from where they used to live. Witty banter eventually turned into serious conversation as they spent more and more time together before, after and outside of trivia happy hours... Patrick knew how much Keri's close college friends meant to her, so he knew he wanted to involve them in his proposal. The rest of their sweet love story is summarized here, from our time during their Wyman Park engagement session!

The intimate and cozy Stone Manor B&B was absolutely perfect for a meaningful, relaxing way to celebrate with the people they love! I wish more couples would indulge in the luxury of a weekend getaway wedding (or maybe I just wish we had for our wedding!). :)

This moment where Keri's mom helped button up the back of her dress may be one of my absolute favorite; Pride. Love. Joy. Excitement... as a mom myself, I'm no stranger to the emotion-filled ride that is motherhood!

I can't get over how stunning Keri looked and how perfectly her lace illusion back Allure Bridals dress complimented the romantic, garden aesthetic of the manor's grounds! I love that she left her curly hair untouched, other than a headband. Isn't she absolutely breathtaking?!

As Keri and the girls were getting ready (in the largest bridal suite I've ever seen!), Patrick and his brother used the opportunity to make some final adjustments to his coral polka dotted pocket square and tie. #coraleverythingplease

Their first look was one of the most unique first looks I've ever captured... peeking out among a set of juliet balconies inside the manor!

Keri's dad, a retired minister, performed the ceremony and her brother walked her down the aisle... cue the happy tears!

I was definitely drooling as I was photographing the cookie dessert table... not only were they delicious, but an extremely popular Pittsburgh tradition! Who knew!?!
