Spring Wedding at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Lancaster, PA | Alison + Eric

On the feast of Our Lady of Fatima, in a beautiful historic church dedicated to Our Lady, Alison and Eric were married on a spring day in Lancaster, PA.  From their lovely details in the morning to the blues found in the bridal party, there were little nods to Mary, the mother of God throughout the day.  So many happy tears were shed throughout the day, especially at their first look! They had written letters to each other and exchanged them at their first look. Such a sweet moment for us to capture, I was tearing up behind the camera!

Historic St. Mary’s is a gorgeous church in downtown Lancaster. When we walked in, I was taken aback by the beautiful details, especially the painting of the Assumption of Our Lady into Heaven.  Alison and Eric walked down the aisle together which is a Catholic tradition, symbolizing the two coming to the altar freely of themselves. They are the ministers of the sacrament by virtue of their baptism. It was such a special tradition to capture, I loved the grins they had on their faces as they walked together down the aisle of the beautiful church.  You could just tell how excited they were that their wedding day was finally here!

After a beautiful nuptial Mass, we headed to their reception at a quintessential Lancaster County barn.  Alison’s friend lives there on the property and they decked out the barn in such beautiful decorations! One of my favorite parts of the reception was the food!! Oh my goodness, the grazing table/massive charcuterie board was the main course and it was not only impressive to look at, but it was also absolutely delicious!

Another unique thing was the white bounce house! Alison had mentioned to me on one of our calls before the wedding that one of Eric’s few requests for his wedding day was that there be a bounce house at the reception! How fun is that?!?

Alison and Eric, we hope you are having just the BEST time in Ireland on your honeymoon! We are so incredibly thrilled for you both and so excited to see what God has in store for you! God bless and enjoy scrolling through your blog post!
