About a year ago, I met Rodney and Bethany when they came to me for newborn photos of their baby girl. So I was very excited when I heard they were tying the knot this year, AND at one of my very favorite venues! I was married at The Lodges at Gettysburg in 2012, so it holds a special place in my heart, and what better way to begin my first wedding back after maternity leave!
These two are such a special couple. I have known Bethany's family (and a large majority of her extended family!) for most of my life. It has been so fun to be a part of all of their major milestones over the last few years, and adding this wedding to that list was a true honor. It is so apparent that they are completely in love with each other, and their little girl is a product of that love and commitment.

My obsession with Bethany's gown (David's Bridal) began right when we took it out of the bag. That skirt!!! Oh my goodness! Paired with some sparkling accessories, she looked just like a princess herself.

Rodney anxiously waiting to see his bride (suit from Hanover Clothing Company). The couple decided to make sure they did not see each other before the ceremony, and we even did all of the girl's photos indoors, just to make sure Rodney didn't steal a peek.

And now for the party!
Congratulations to Rodney and Bethany! It was a pleasure to be part of your day.
Thank you to my second shooter, Amanda Souders.
