When I first went to visit Tori’s future in-laws’ land for their Summer wedding at the beginning of July, the pavilion and picnic table area did not exist. When I arrived for Tori and Tanner’s mid-August Summer wedding, I couldn’t get over the amount of work the family had put into the area to prepare for this special day! The pavilion is placed perfectly for a sunset view of the mountains, you can camp in any of the wide open fields, and visit the ponies and goats. There’s seriously SO much beauty tucked in this beautiful wedding venue right outside of Shippensburg, PA, and Carlisle, PA.
The parking area is right around the corner from the conveniently placed pavillion. There is plenty of space for a bar, buffet, dance floor, tables, and more!
The beauty doesn’t stop after sunset! They have panel lights in the ceiling, a long string of lights around the pavilion, lights lining each path, and even a small section of trees wrapped in twinkle lights!
Tori’s grandfather officiated the summer wedding ceremony. Her Father-in-law was able to borrow this sweet little beamer from a dealership friend to drive her from the getting-ready camper to the aisle. Their daughter Delilah wanted in on the action and got to hang out with mom and dad at the altar. Later in the day, Grandma realized what she really wanted up there was the microphone. LOL
What wedding day isn’t complete without kiddos and those sweet candid moments? But also, we gotta take a minute to appreciate that Tori was literally GLOWING this day, and you can tell the love in this little fam is SO real and sweet!
After dinner, it was time to sneak away from the party for Tori & Tanner’s couples photos, complete with an outfit change to the CUTEST little reception dress!
If you ever need a photo station or something special for any event, Amanda is the girl to call! She has all the props and probably a car to fit any vision you may have! This was my first time getting to work with her after a long time of being Instagram friends. It was a true honor to use this Volkswagen bus for bridal photos and when we weren’t using it, all the guests couldn’t get enough either!
We took full advantage of this summer sunset and went right into the blue hour to experiment with some headlight shots with Rosie and it did not disappoint! We were even able to lure some horses over with treats!
