Hershey’s Purcell Friendship Hall Wedding – Stevie & Terry

post by matt

When we first met Stevie and Terry at Starbucks in Hershey we connected instantly. They are such a fun, easy going couple and we knew their wedding day would be a blast. We first met up with Stevie at the Annville Inn where she was getting ready with her girls. The Inn is such a quaint place and it was fun to shoot all the details there. After they were ready to go we jumped in the limo and went to Hershey Garden’s for their first look.

After he saw his bride, we wandered around the gardens with Terry and Stevie and tried to stay cool in the shade :) We had a blast taking bridal party photos, to say they were a fun group would be understating it! Then we jumped in the limo again and were off to Purcell Friendship Hall where their guests were waiting for them to say ‘I Do’ to one another.

Their cocktail hour was Virginia Tech themed, as their school is very close to their hearts! There was delicious food, VT cocktails and corn hole. The best part of it was the fact that Stevie and Terry could mingle with their guests and enjoy food and beverages themselves before the reception festivities began.

We once again got distracted on our way back to the limo.

And just before we got on the road to head to their ceremony we found these great oversized windmills.

Stevie’s mom walked her down the aisle to beautiful violin music by Nicholas Perry.

Some laughs durning the ceremony.

Vowing to stay together for better or worse.

A kiss <3

This was great! They gave fruity pebbles to their guest to throw their way as they walked back down the aisle, fabulous for pictures!

Then we stole them away for a couple more pictures at the Purcell Friendship Hall at the end of the cocktail hour.

Love the pop of color her bouquet brings.

Love it!

There are some beautiful spots on the property.
