Nittany Lion Inn Wedding – Tara & George

post by nat

Tara & George, where do I even begin? Our first face to face meeting was the day I went home from the hospital with Keziah. Matt dropped us off at home (with my parents) and headed on to Jersey Shore to meet Tara & George for their engagement session. They sent back the sweetest little gift for Keziah and I was really looking forward to meeting them in person. Thankfully we had the chance to meet up with them a couple of times before their wedding. We chatted about their final details over Thai food and could barely wait for their big day!

They had a stunning, albeit cold fall day. We started with getting ready shots at the Nittany Lion Inn, where the reception would later be held. Tara made a gorgeous bride for her groom and it wasn’t long before we were on the way to the church to get them married. After the ceremony we went back to the Penn State campus for pictures, since that is where Tara & George met. Just as we were about to finish up it started to rain, so they were whisked away in that Penn State trolley back to the Inn for their reception.

Kate Spades, does it get any better?!

And check out this stunning set up for their reception!! The cake is from the Penn State Bakery. The uplighting from Nittany Entertainment created the perfect atmosphere.
