Pen Ryn Mansion in Bensalem, PA | Gina and Brad Wedding

Bradley and Gina have known each other since high school and were good friends before they started dating. Exactly eleven years later, Bradley surprised Gina on their anniversary with a romantic proposal at home with their sweet pup, Teddy. Their wedding day was long-awaited, and I was so happy for these two when it finally arrived earlier this month!

They chose the Pen Ryn Mansion for their big day, a stunning venue nestled along the Delaware River – the couple’s favorite spot for a splitting a Chick-Fil-A milkshake on a date night drive. As an English teacher, Gina immediately knew she wanted to incorporate book-themed centerpieces and décor as a nod to the mansion’s library. They loved the idea of having their story shared with family and friends in more ways than one, and so did I!

Their wedding day may have started off with a little rain, but the skies cleared up in just enough time to snap their first look photos outside ahead of their ceremony. As soon as I saw Bradley, I could tell he was a little nervous to see his bride. Bradley and Gina had been going back and forth on whether or not to do a first look or to see each other for the first time during their ceremony. After opting for a first look – a choice I recommend to so many of my couples – Bradley had the best reaction after seeing his gorgeous bride for the first time – lots of tears!

The entire day was filled with so much happiness and joy – it was clear how loved this couple was.

Bradley and Gina, I loved being a part of your day! Every detail came together perfectly, and it was such a pleasure working with such a wonderful couple and amazing bridal party. Thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding day. I wish you a lifetime full of adventure, love, and joy!
