I met Krystal and Pat over a year ago, when we first got together for coffee to chat about their upcoming wedding. I remember so clearly how Krystal mentioned she was a decisive planner, and once she had her mind made up on a decision, that was that! I appreciated her organization, as I myself am also a planner by nature. I knew we would hit it off right away.
These two met in college at Penn State University, and truly bleed the blue and white. Their day was scattered with reminders of their time at PSU, and much of our morning was spent on campus for their first look and portraits. The campus is just incredible, and I could've spent the entire day there just finding little spots for photos. But we hit a few of their most treasured memories, including the exact spot where they met for their very first date!

The couple chose to do a First Look before the ceremony at The Arboretum at Penn State.
Our next stop was one of the most photographed spots on PSU's campus - The Lion Shrine.
And then possibly my favorite spot, Old Main. The pillars and stonework made such a classic setting for our beautiful bride and her groom.
Our final campus stop was on Allen Street where Pat and Krystal met for the very first time. He was waiting for her while reading the paper, and we just so happened to have a paper handy to recreate this special moment.
The organization and hard work that went into coordinating their wedding day, left them with nothing to worry about when the actual day arrived. Their ceremony and reception at General Potter Farm in Spring Mills, PA was truly beautiful. From the rustic barn to the purple floral landscape beside the creek, everything about this location was picture perfect.
A wedding so filled with love and pure joy from both the bride and groom. I am so happy to have the opportunity to experience this day with you, and wish you all the best as you continue through life together as a married couple. Congratulations Blooms!
