Emily and Dan were married on July 4th. That seems fitting because they certainly asserted their independent streaks in planning and orchestrating their wedding celebration. From Emily’s choice of dress to the guests participating in the entertainment, it was a unique wedding. It was great to be able to stretch and test my abilities outside of the typical course of events.

The wedding was held at Lingrow Farm, near Leechburg. We were blessed with warm weather and clear skies, which allowed us to take advantage of the great natural beauty of the farm.

Emily and Dan chose to do their formal shots before the ceremony.  Here’s Emily trying to figure out how to pin the boutonnière on Dan’s suit.

Before cutting the cake, Emily and Dan thanked their guests for coming:

There is always that moment of negotiation before a couple feeds each other a bite of cake.  You never know when someone is going to go rogue and shove the cake in their new spouses’ face.  Emily and Dan behaved themselves:-)

Emily’s mom and dad gave a funny speech about the couple:

Dan’s buddies roasted him with some really funny imitations of him.  During this part of the evening guests were encouraged to provide some entertainment – whether it be a song, a story, or a poem – in lieu of the tradition where guests clink their glasses to get the couple to kiss.  Emily and Dan have some talented and creative friends:
