Kaitlyn + Dave: Rock Creek Farm, Gettysburg, PA
September 16, 2017
Every bride dreams that her wedding will being unique, memorable and meaningful, and Kaitlyn and Dave most certainly took their wedding day to a whole new level in my experience! Not only was it their dream to get married on the O'Malley family farm in Gettysburg, PA, but also to design and refurbish the beautiful white barn at Rock Creek Farm, which has now become a sophisticated wedding and event venue for others to enjoy!
After months of painting, staining, creating and pounding a copper bar top, the beauty of their new barn was only matched by the gorgeous September day that showed up for their wedding! Arriving early at Rock Creek Farm for Dave, his groomsmen and family, we found the farm was buzzing with activity. The final preparations were being put into place, videos of how to tie a bow were on every phone and laughter could be be heard in all all directions. Dave was completely surrounded by charismatic friends helping to make sure his day was everything! It didn't take long to find ourselves in the field coordinating the groom and groomsmen for a great hunting picture as well as organizing them on the dock to the pond.
Shortly after, we arrived at the Gettysburg Hotel where the Kaitlyn and her girls were getting ready. A beautiful historic hotel filled with yet more amazing spots to take photographs! When we entered the bridal suite, we found Kaitlyn sitting in a chair getting the finishing touches done to her makeup -- she was even more stunning than usual! The bridesmaids were brilliantly relaxed helping to keep the day de-stressed, and it showed as Kaitlyn was a cool as a cucumber! The playfulness of this group was beyond what I could want from a wedding party!!
Kaitlyn and Dave are sensational together and documenting them with their fabulous families was a huge honor. They planned a day with beautiful details, plenty of time for fun portraits, a special heartfelt ceremony, and a reception in a stunningly refurbished barn. It was truly a gorgeous day and a photographer's paradise made even more beautiful by two amazing people, Kaitlyn and Dave!
