Valley Forge in Pennsylvania small wedding photography - laughs when the bride could not put the groom's ring on

Everybody laughed when Anna could not put Jim's ring on his finger.

We started the day at Manayunk Chambers Guest House which was very exciting. This neighborhood of Philadelphia is very unique. They wanted an intimate wedding, and their “getting ready” was just like that. Anna had prepared something special for Jim: a letter. I had the privilege to be here and capture Jim’s reaction and the first tears of the day.

They did not want to see each other in their wedding outfits before the ceremony at Valley Forge National Historical Park. Once the chairs were placed, the 10 guests sat down to wait for Anna’s arrival.

The ceremony was truly unique and beautiful. After this, and a sip of champagne, the couple took a small walk around to capture the beauty of the place. For their wedding reception, Anna and Jim chose to eat at Nectar, an award-winning restaurant on the Main Line Philadelphia Suburb of Berwyn that serves Asian-French food.
