Mesmerized by the way two people love each other, each so uniquely.  I always leave room for dessert. Believe swear words are just sentence embellishers. Think indulgences are necessary in this life.

Parties with all the best people in their lives.

Just my little thoughts on different topics of planning your wedding day big party or just you two.

Stories of two lovers making it all about them, as they should.

Destination weddings don’t have to be on a tropical island or in a far off land, they can also be cozy barn wedding venues in Pennsylvania. Andy + Jordan’s summer wedding at One Barn Farm is proof of that! 

So how did I, a Montana wedding photographer, end up at a cozy barn wedding venue in Pennsylvania. While it’s not my normal stomping grounds, it’s true that no wedding is too far for a traveling wedding photographer like myself! 

I first met Andy + Jordan in Glacier National Park, where Andy had planned a surprise proposal followed by an adventurous engagement session! Surprise proposals in Glacier are always fun and I’ve done a few over the years! (Tap that link to see another super sweet proposal!) But Andy + Jordan had such a good time that they decided they had to have me for their wedding, even though they had no idea where it might be! 

Ultimately they chose One Barn Farm in Mifflinburg, PA, a small town northwest of Philadelphia. Though neither of them are from the area, it is situated in between both sides of their family, making it the perfect weekend getaway for their guests. Being a frequent flyer and a lover of travel, I said heck ya I’ll photograph you at your barn wedding venue! 

It was a beautiful and elegant estate with a big barn and several other houses on the grounds, with manicured lawns and gardens sprinkled throughout! Rosemary and Rust florals brought their flower magic to the wedding, Gable House Bakery supplied the treats, and BarCODE Mobile Bar brought the party. 

The weather could not have been more perfect for an early summer wedding day! Andy + Jordan had their ceremony out on the lawn surrounded by friends and family who traveled from all over to be there on their day. For their reception, the barn on the property was perfect! But when it came to dancing the night away, they did it the right way – out on the lawn, under the stars

So if you’re looking to plan a destination wedding, here’s your reminder! It can be anywhere. Sure we can go off to another country or elope with just you two in the mountains somewhere, but you can also choose to do it in whatever way that feels good to you. Maybe that is in the college town where you met, the shores of your favorite lake house vacation spot growing up, or even a barn wedding venue somewhere in between your two families. 

Here’s another little bit of inspo for you, if a barn wedding venue is calling your name. No matter where you’re headed, I’m always down to make the trip! Tell me the vision for your day and we’ll make sure all of the fun is documented. Say hi here
