The "eternal bachelor got hitched". At least according to the hashtag displayed around the grounds the day of Ryan and Sarah's wedding. It's fun to kid around with that, especially since it's my brother-in-law we're talking about. It's true, sometimes I'd wonder if Ryan would ever find the girl just right for him. I'm so happy that he finally did, and Sarah is certainly that girl. The way she laughs with him and appreciates his antics and humor, she is the perfect balance for him. I'm so glad they have found each other. Between their adventurous spirits and their careers in law enforcement, and on top of that with three kids running around, one thing's for sure - life with these two will never be boring! But I'm thrilled they get to experience this journey of life together now.
Their beautiful wedding was held at the historic Landis Valley Museum, the same place where Matt and I said our vows just 5 years ago. So it was even more special that I was able to photograph their wedding at the same place I had mine, oh the nostalgia. The weather was gorgeous, the details and decor carefully chosen and placed, I couldn't have asked for a better wedding day to document.
Sarah was truly radiant as she got ready to meet her groom :)
yan patiently waited for his bride...gosh, I love these first look moments :)
The lovebirds were having their sweet moment....meanwhile, the kiddos were getting bored, ha!
Sarah was more interested in the candid captures of the wedding rather than a bunch of posed pictures, but I had to squeeze in a couple here and there, and I'm so glad I did because she absolutely nailed them, simply stunning!
Of course, if you know Ryan, you know he can only stay serious for so long...
Moment of prayer before heading over to the ceremony.
Just a little more practice before the ceremony begins, how adorable is this :)
Now, time for the real deal.
Sand illustration with the whole family involved, pretty cool!
Delicious food provided by the wonderful Country Home Catering.
The kids sure loved the photo props....

Beautiful reception in the big yellow barn at Landis Valley.
Congratulations Ryan and Sarah! So happy to be part of your family and part of your big day!
