Angela + Austin were married in May at the beautiful Catalpa Grove at Lakewood Park in Barnesville, Pennsylvania ( Schuylkill County). It was a fairly rainy and humid day, however there are plenty of covered patios- and the barn is gorgeous and immaculate, as well as well lit, so we did just fine and didn’t even need to use umbrellas.
Angela’s beautiful bouquet included peonies from France ( they smelled heavenly) and an entertaining first first look featuring the best man in a strapless dress! I think the sound of his footfalls clued the groom in that it wasn’t his fiancee before he turned around, though.
The gown ( exclusively you ) was so stunning (and absolutely made for twirling)! The cake by Jane’s Sugar Magnolia was adorned with edible flowers and metallic accents. Hair + makeup was done by Tara Matos, who stuck around for touch ups from happy tears. Catering was by Constantino’s and included attentive kind service and tasty dinner! Musical entertainment by DJ Connor from Engagement Sounds.
This venue is really beautiful and I hope to be able to photograph more weddings there in the very near future! Know someone getting married in 2023? I’d love to discuss wedding photography with them.
