The Lake House Inn Wedding

The Lake House Inn is an incredible rustic wedding venue in Pennsylvania.  Located less than two hours from New York City and one hour from Philadelphia, it's in an easy-to-travel-to location!  Your Manhattan guests and your Philly guests can both reach The Lake House Inn easily, making day-of wedding travel a cinch!

The Lake House Inn offers up a rustic charm in a very elegant location.  You can get ready in the beautiful Inn.  You can get married with an amazing lakeside view.  You can take your pictures with your spouse, bridal party, and family right by the water.  After your ceremony, you can move inside for an incredible ballroom reception.  If you're even lucky, you'll see one of the incredible Perkasie sunsets right over your cocktail hour!

At this wonderful wedding at the Lake House Inn in Perkasie, Pennsylvania, the bride was surrounded by seven bridesmaid and two flower girls. I love getting to know my clients and seeing the relationships that they have with the women in their bridal party. 

While on the wedding day we absolutely take traditional portraits of the bridal party standing and smiling directly at the camera, I always love to try and document the warm moments between the women when they’re naturally interacting. After taking their formal photograph, I simply instructed the women to "find each other incredibly funny." 

Is this a slightly cheesy bit of direction? It absolutely is. The usual response to being asked to spontaneously laugh is that the bridal party actually spontaneously laughs! I do not believe in staging the moment, I would much rather document naturally occurring moments, but I have no problems encouraging the setting of the scene so that the moment can take place. The relationships between these women and the genuine joy that they feel in each other's company is not fake. It is warm and loving and was an absolute pleasure to photograph.
