Riverdale Manor Wedding – Mary Beth & Chris

post by nat

Last week we were back at the beautiful Riverdale Manor For Mary Beth & Chris’ big day. We’ve been looking forward to their wedding for a long time :) Originally from the Philadelphia area they moved out here a couple of years ago and have settled into life in Central PA quite nicely. They love their family and friends and really wanted everyone to enjoy themselves. They chose to have a first look so that they could spend more time with their guests and then continued the night at The Marriott afterwards. They even invited their photographers to join! We really had a lot of fun getting to know everyone and capturing the day for Mary Beth & Chris!

Chris and his details. Love the boutonniere!
