I’ve found one of my new favorite PA wedding venues and it could not have been with a sweeter couple! Hannah and Ray are so incredibly kind, loving, and truly meant to be. Everything came together perfectly for their Stone Mill Inn wedding in October. They met online and they truly think fate brought them together. Their proposal took place on Cadillac Mountain in Maine! Ray and Hannah took a last minute trip there after another trip was cancelled. Because Hannah always wanted to see the sunrise on Cadillac Mountain, they decided to head up there one morning, and Ray asked her to marry him there.
If that wasn’t adorable enough, they also told me they want everyone at their wedding to feel how in love they are. After touring Stone Mill Inn, they knew it was a no brainer for them to get married here! They wanted nature to play a big role in their wedding day and the grounds at Stone Mill Inn sold them right away. I can’t blame them at all, it’s an asbolutely stunning space and the owners are some of the kindest people on the planet. I’m obsessed with their wedding day!
Since they didn’t do a first look, we got a bulk of their photographs done before the ceremony so they had less to do later. The groomsmen and bridesmaids both had their photos done and they had SO much fun. There’s no bad spot on the grounds at Stone Mill Inn. Every nook and cranny is beautifully landscaped and so serene. This is my first Stone Mill Inn wedding and I can’t wait to ccome back here!
Also, they had some dreamy overcast weather and it was SO warm for October. We couldn’t believe it, but it made for beautiful photographs! After we were done with the pre-ceremony photos, everyone headed into hiding to get ready for Hannah and Ray’s ceremony.
Remember their emphasis on nature? Well just LOOK at this incredible ceremony spot! The forest ceremony space gives the coziest romantic vibes and I could see why they picked it.
I’ll never get over Ray’s sweet reaction to seeing Hannah. He’s truly in love with her and it shows in every photo of them. These two stole the entire spotlight, and rightfully so! Just look at them *insert teary eyed emoji*
We quickly did family portraits, wedding party portraits, and Hannah and Ray’s portraits before the sun went completely down!
Before we knew it, it was party time! Everyone was ready to eat, dance, and celebrate! Those desserts were soooo dang good, I’m a sucker for good wedding desserts! All in all, it was a wonderful day filled with beautiful moments and love. I’m so happy for Hannah and Ray and so honored they had me photograph their special day!
