Jess & Gerardo’s Faunbrook Bed & Breakfast wedding was all about the joining of families. This wedding was near and dear to my heart. I know Jess from the YMCA in West Chester where she works. She works in childcare and has taken care of my kids since they have been going there as babies. I also shot one of their best friends’ weddings last year. Before Jess contacted me, I had decided I was not going to take any more October weddings. But of course I decided to break my own rules.
The day was very much about the kids. Jess has 3 children and Jess and Gerardo have one child together. The day was not just a wedding between two people, but a blending of families. The kids were all very excited! They all received gifts and loved every second! They got the be part of the whole day, from the getting ready, to the ceremony, to the dancing. Little Ethan walked his mom down the aisle and was very emotional through the whole ceremony. It was very sweet. I also have to give a shout out to my Associate Photographer, Katie, for the great shot of Jess and Ethan right before the ceremony.
I also loved the vendors that Jess and Gerardo chose for their intimate affair. They chose all local vendors which was really great. Kati Mac provided the gorgeous purple and white florals. The cake, and surprise grooms cake were made by Cakes and Candies by Maryellen. My brother in law’s company, Greensleeves Entertainment, provided the DJ and guitarist. Delicious food was provided by John Serock Catering. Hair was done by Hair by Patti Ann (also my hairdresser, who was also my daughter’s best friend at the Y). Makeup was done by Jennifer Harris at Confidence Corner Beauty Supply.
I loved being a part of this beautiful day. It was great to shoot a wedding where I knew so many people, from the vendors to those on the guest list. I wish Jess and Gerardo a lifetime of happiness!
