Intimate Same Sex Park Wedding || West Chester Wedding Photography
I really love small intimate weddings. It can be such a nice break from a super long wedding day, a huge wedding party and less stress. (Don’t get me wrong, each and every wedding we capture is special to us. There’s just something extra special about being invited to share in the deeply personal moments like this one.) When Tara contacted me to photograph her and Shelley’s same sex park wedding, I was so thrilled. It’s also a nice change of pace to get out of the city and this West Chester wedding photography was so fun! We did not really Tara and Shelley before their wedding day. We had met Tara at a networking event and had a few mutual friends. So we are so happy that they trusted us with their wedding photography.
To me the most important thing about a wedding is love – I think you can all agree. Second important is being surrounded by family and friends. All the other “stuff” is nice but when you have true love and your loved ones with you, you really can’t beat that. Together Shelley and Tara have four beautiful daughters. They held a small ceremony at a park near their house in West Chester. Also in attendance were their family and a couple close friends. It was so awesome to see the kids and their dog all incorporated into the ceremony.
A fun and special moment during the ceremony was each person placed a different colored stone in a vase. Then after the ceremony they each put one of those stones into a tree. It created this beautiful little space that was like a little fairy garden.
After their ceremony, we took about 15 minutes to get some beautiful photos of just the couple. And then adding her daughters and the rest of their family for a set of great family photos. Following the ceremony and family photos, we all went to Four Dogs Tavern in West Chester for shared a meal. They did a couple of toasts and then basically we all broke bread together. It was so fantastic being included in their special day and being treated like a part of the family.
I love capturing small intimate weddings and elopements like these. It really gets down to the basics of what is important on a wedding day without all the frill.
