Dustin Toy and Alecia Calhoun Engagement https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2019/8/dustin-toy-and-alecia-calhoun-engagement I met Alecia years ago when I photographed her sister Erica's wedding. I was so excited when Alecia called me to ask if I would photograph hers. It's such a compliment and honor to me when a family asks me to photograph multiple events for them. We met at the Calhoun family farm, which needless to say was gorgeous. A storm was chasing me in and I was getting worried we would get a lot of rain, really fast. But it held off the entire evening and we spent time walking to several locations to get the best views. Here are some sneak peeks !

Kyle and Renee Fabin Wedding, Holy Name Church, Ebensburg, PA https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2019/6/kyle-and-renee-fabin-wedding-holy-name-church-ebensburg-pa I've scaled back my weddings a bit over the past few years and my main goal has been to work with couples that I really jive with, that are fun, down to earth, and love to laugh. I can't say enough how much this has impacted my life. I love photographing weddings for wonderful families like Renee and Kyle's. Their day was truly FULL OF LAUGHTER, and there are so many pictures to prove it. I love that as I'm editing previews the next day, I find myself constantly smiling. There was such a sense of family and community at their wedding and the ritual of marriage and wedding really made SENSE when you attend a wedding like theirs. From the polka's, the waltzing, and the traditional bridal polka, to the hysterical and fun guests dancing the night away. One thing I noted was how much Renee's dad enjoyed polka'ing with her, and that as the bridal dance came to the end he hugged her SO TIGHTLY in the crowd of family and friends, waiting for Kyle to break through the crowd and steal away his new bride. As the mom of three girls, I can imagine how tightly I want to hold on to them and these moments. I truly enjoyed meeting these folks, and oh yeah, the bridal party. THE BRIDAL PARTY. You did not disappoint, thanks for being so fun and thanks Mike, for making sure EVERYONE knew my name was Julie. 

Until next time folks, here's the Fabin wedding!

Alison and Earl Hewitt Wedding https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2019/4/alison-and-earl-hewitt-wedding Seriously, this is probably one of the most stunning and simple weddings I've had the pleasure of photographing. Ali and Earl tied the knot this weekend at the Hewitt family farm. It was a beautiful breezy day surrounded by close family and friends. I'm so honored to have been there to document the day for them. From the flower crown, to the waterfront ceremony, the details were perfect. Take a look at all the details and love below



And the best part?

May the road rise up to meet you

May the wind ever be at your back

May the sun shine warm upon your face

The rains fall soft upon your fields

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of his hand

Robert and Nicole Hopkins Wedding, Chetremon https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2018/10/robert-and-nicole-hopkins-wedding-chetremon This was my last wedding of 2018! It seriously couldn't have been with a more fun group; they.were.hilarious. 

It really makes my job easy when I have a fun group of people excited to take pictures and not afraid to have a good time doing it! Nicole and her family were so gracious in the use of their home for our bridal portraits and we sure needed that barn when the rain came down!  A short drive out to the Chetremon and they were dancing the night away. Enjoy the highlite reel! 



Bobby brought a bottle of wine from his late grandfather's home vineyard. They had been saving it for this day and popped the cork! The bridal party all celebrated with a salut!

Matt and Brittney Henderson Wedding, Indiana Country Club https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2018/9/matt-and-brittney-henderson-wedding-indiana-country-club You may remember this beautiful couple from their engagement pictures. We went hiking to a beautiful waterfall last fall to document their engagement. 


And yesterday, they were married! Brittney and Matt are two of the most relaxed, kind, gracious people I know. Matt is so attentive to Brittney; there were several times throughout the day I witnessed his love and adoration for her; wanting her to have the best day of her life. The joy and happiness is evident on their faces. We got a little off course on our trek for bridal portraits and they weren't afraid to do a little "off-roading" with me to find our spot! Travel safe to your honeymoon and avoid hurricanes my friends! 

Enjoy ~ Julie Bee

Rovee Wedding ~ Heinz Chapel https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2018/9/rovee-wedding-heinz-chapel What can  I say? Liz lights up a room wherever she goes with her infectious smile. She dodged raindrops, laughed, and said "I do" to Ben like she hadn't a care in the world. Her step was light as a feather as she walked down the aisle in historic Heinz chapel, Ben held his hand over his heart as soon as he saw her. Their good friend Terry Sabo strummed beautiful music in the background, and the rest is history my friends.

Their reception was held at the Shannopin Country Club. Check out those Terrible Towel Cookies! These two made sure they took some of their wedding pictures with the Pittsburgh Panther too.

I can say, however, I have never seen such dancing as they had at their reception, and I can't wait to share those fun photos with them. Until then, here's some peeks !

The wedding of Jess and Graham at Succop Conservancy https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2018/7/the-wedding-of-jess-and-graham-at-succop When I met with Jess she talked to me about how much she loved the wedding venue; Succop Conservancy. You really can't go wrong here, it's just.so.gorgeous. Add in a funky VW Van theme, tiny daisies in the bride's hair, and a SERIOUSLY gorgeous and sunny day: you have pure magic. 

Now, it was a hot day. But no one seemed to mind. The guests were all smiles, and the groomsmen were allll laughs. I get lucky when I have a group that has as much fun as these guys did. I really enjoyed documenting Jess and Graham's wedding this weekend. It was such a fun day, so many laughs, and the fooooood. Oh, the food. Good lord they outdid themselves. 


These two lovebirds exchanged a letter to each other before the ceremony, and then we snuck out to the courtyard for their first look. 


And the EXIT! Graham just scooped up Jess and away they ran!

Meredith and Joe Nimitz Wedding, The Grand Halle, Johnstown https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2018/1/meredith-and-joe-nimitz-wedding-the-grand-halle-johnstown I can't say enough about these two, they are so fun, genuine, and classic. I was truly stunned by the dress, the HAIR; Meredith looked like she walked out of a magazine and Joe was pretty dapper himself! It was the general consensus that these two are pretty blessed in the hair department ;) 


One of my favorite parts of the day was the fabulous boots Meredith wore under her dress: When it's 12 degrees out, you have to be creative! The snow lent us a beautiful backdrop, along with the warm light of the setting sun over Richland Greens Golf course.

The day ended at the Grand Halle, and you can see the attention to detail Meredith has throughout the decor. The trees, the pinecones, the tiny white lights; everything was exceptional. I truly had the best time photographing this wedding. Their families, the love they already have for eachother: these families were truly so happy and joyful to watch Mer and Joe tie the knot. It really was an honor to photograph this wedding. So, true to my blog fashion; enjoy the love below and share to your heart's content.

So naturally I was excited that Tracy and Josh chose this as their session location. We met at sunset, they brought their pups and some pals to help wrangle said pups, and we jaunted around to find the best spots and the best sunset light. I really love these sunset engagement sessions, so much glowry warmth and these two are so sweet and kind.

He's a big hockey player so we started out at the War Memorial in Johnstown for some pictures on the ice and then headed out to some spots around Johnstown. We had a great time, a lot of laughs, took some funny pictures of his mom to use as blackmail (tee hee) and ended up with a killer senior session catalog for him to choose from. Enjoy!

Sarah and Mike Fisher Wedding Sneak Peeks https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2017/9/sarah-and-mike-fisher-wedding-sneak-peeks This wedding was seriously the most fun I've had with a bridal couple in a long time!  Mike struck a pose at every turn, he's fully ready for his modeling career. Sarah was a stunning array of sparkles and class and floated on air from the moment she stepped into her gown. This couple was so sweet, up for anything, completely having fun and enjoying every moment of their day. Photographing couples like this is what makes me happiest; I love working with fun, hilarious, and joyful people who are just truly living in the moment and well, whooping it up! 


Mike and Sarah chose to do a First Look at the hotel they were getting ready at. The quiet courtyard in the back gave us a beautiful backdrop of the Chestnut Ridge golf course; and we couldn't have asked for a sunnier day! 

Mike said his "allergies were acting up" here *wink wink*









We moved to the Country Club in Indiana to get some fun bridal party shots and some va-va-voom gorgeous images of the bride and groom themselves


Mike kept joking about how he and Sarah have been practicing their "dip" and he scared the life out of me when he pretended to almost drop her next to the pond at the club. I'm still recovering....



I was so excited to see their first dance. The couple told me they had never really danced in public before and they had been getting ready for the big moment. I think they killed it! Hi, can you say, epic dip?! Good job you two! 

Mike sang to Sarah the whole time they were dancing. Seriously. Girl, you got yourself a keeper!


Congratulations you two, from the bottom of my heart. It was fun, hilarious, sweet, joyful teary day, and I'm so happy I met you both.


May the wind always be at your backs

Halfway to Home, Abe's 6 month milestone session https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2017/8/halfway-to-home-abes-6-month-milestone-session Remember sweet lil Abe? His newborn session was one of my favorites and we met up to do a baseball "Halfway to Home" session for his milestone. Mama brought all the kiddos who ran around with dad at the baseball field, while we snuggled up Abe and made him giggle. Nothing fazes this little guy, he's a smiler!

I love seeing her every year, she's been one of my favorite little face, you'll see some of these images displayed at my new studio in Indiana. She's a ham, she's fun, sassy, and loves to model for her pictures. We've come a long way from our first session as a baby: i had to WORK to get her to crack a smile! Now, she's all grins!

Well, they have a new addition to their family! She's so beautiful and dainty and I really enjoyed catching up with these folks and chatting  about life after wedding! I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do!



I'm in love with mama nad baby images, they are so my favorite every time! 

Isn't this headband the cutest? 

Mama loves the coral vibe and so did I, what a great summer color!

The Wedding of Alexandra and Stefan Moreau https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2017/8/the-wedding-of-alexandra-and-stefan-moreau This wedding. THIS.WEDDING.

Seriously, top five of my all-time favorites.

Alexandra has such an eye for detail, every bit of this wedding was her vision and dream and she carried it out to perfection. Stefan had all eyes on her, and how could he not, have you seen this girl?! She was a vision in her crystal draped semi-backless gown. Grace Kelly herself would turn her head to Alexandra's  custom headpiece and elegant mermaid gown. 

The ceremony at Zion Lutheran Church in Indiana, PA was followed by a butterfly release, and Alexandra's bouquet was too sweet to resist, with a few butterflies camping out on it for the duration of her family portraits. A reception followed at the Barn at Rayne Run, and the golden sunset took over the mood lighting, filling their first dance with sparkling glittery glow. You can't make this stuff up folks, it was magic. DJ Bob Rout with Third Wave Sound kept the night going strong and the bridal party made sure EVERYONE danced, laughed and stayed well past dark. 

I laughed all day with these amazing people and I'm really honored to have documented this momentous day for such a sweet and lovely couple. 

Alexandra and Stefan, may the wind always be at your back.

Lauren and Joe leaned on each other throughout the ceremony, happily in their own world enjoying every moment of the ceremony. 

They chose such a gorgeous location for their reception and i have so many fun and joy filled photos from their beautiful celebration at Burnhead Grazings, Indiana, PA. I can't wait to share everything; but for now enjoy these sneak peeks!

Sneak Peek of Stefan and Alexandra Moreau's Wedding https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2017/6/sneak-peek-of-stefan-and-alexandra-moreau A beautiful warm, white wedding. A bride so classic and elegant, a solid military man just out of West Point. She's a song you can't forget with a laugh like a bell. He gazes at her like there's no one in the room. His eyes lit up all day when she looked his way. 

Really, I'm so honored to have photographed the wedding of Alexandra Yamrick and Stefan Moreau today. I have sooooo SO SO many images to share. I loved every moment of the day. Their friends and bridal party were hilarious, sweet, helpful and the perfect blended vibe for this couple's wedding day. 

I couldn't wait to post a few, i really just couldn't. 

Enjoy, cool off, and have a fab weekend all,

A sneak peek of Joe and Lauren! https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2017/6/a-sneak-peek-of-joe-and-lauren I had the true and honest pleasure of photographing Joe and Lauren's wedding May 20th and it was a beautiful balmy day here in Indiana, PA. 

I have been plucking away at all their gorgeous wedding images and could hardly pick a favorite, I have many more sneak peeks to upload for them this week but here are a few to check out! 

This wedding party was on POINT with their cheers! Got my favorite picture on the first try, they must have been practicing! 


This image was taken at Graystone Presbyterian Church in Indiana, PA 

I've always loved this beautiful stained glass window and the warm light throughout the church thrown off from the ornate hanging 

lamps and candles 



So much more to come!

The things they don't tell you.... https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2017/5/the-things-they-dont-tell-you  



They don't tell you that your heart will explode when you meet them, that you get teary when you think of them, that you smell their little heads when you hold them - breathing in all the *baby smell* Because *they* cant. You cant really put that  love into words 

That children are the most amazing part of life. Better than any sunset, any grand mountain, any thrill, period. 

Meet Chloe Jane, my little May Bell, my good luck charm

She arrived May 11, 2017. Mama went into labor in the best way ever *wink wink* Read about it here


I photographed her in two sessions, one at my home outdoors in the country, and under the same pink magnolia tree we photographed her mama under.

Then we moved to my studio in Indiana, PA to finish her studio portraits. There will be many, many, MANY to come. This auntie brags like whoah ;)



A few images from the hospital:

The Chloeworm and her cousin Gracie just hanging out in Sophia's bedroom. This was the first time Gracie held a baby. She was so proud, they cuddled for a good long time together. My heart exploded just watching her gaze down at her little cousin. The girls love calling her their little ChloeWorm. 



These photos were taken under my pink magnolia tree, surrounded by little Lily of the Valley's or *May Bells* and hosta

Holding her little May Bell sprig

My proudest moments; introducing Chloe Jane https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2017/5/my-proudest-moments-introducing-chloe-jane A pretty special thing happened: My *sister* Courtney and brother Joel made something pretty incredible. I cry writing this. Courtney has been a pretty huge part of my life for a long time. Her smile, her infectious giggle, and her amazing homemaking skills put me to shame. My brother is really the luckiest man to have found her. She has helped me in raising my own little girls for years, when I went back to work she was stand-in mama. And now she's got her own little bird to watch over! 


We took Courtney's maternity images in less than an hour on a warm night in the beginning of May at the Ghost Town Trail, Heshbon Bridge area.  My littles zoomed around us on their scooters as we desperately tried to capture some quick images.

A big pile of old railroad ties made a dimensional backdrop


And just a couple images under my pink magnolia tree. These are my favorite, this tree makes my heart happy. I'm so blessed to live in a place I love, surrounded by the beauty of this area. Spring magnolia blossoms, the smell in the morning, it's truly peaceful.


If you know me, you know I'm a Pens fan, a big one. They were in game 7 of the series with the Capitals. This was a critical game. We spent the evening like any other, watching the game and screaming our lungs out when they won. Courtney did the same at a friends house, and ten minutes after the big win; her water broke. Chloe Jane was born the next morning *gah!*


Did I mention the Pens are on their way to the Stanley Cup Final? Yeah, she's a little bundle of good luck *wink wink*

Newborn Cream Dream Baby Girl https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2017/4/newborn-cream-dream-baby-girl I've been truly dying to share these images, like, dying to. For serious. How can you get any sweeter and cuter than this little love? She was so alert and peaceful this entire session, I couldn't believe how chill this girl was! A touch of green was a tip of the hat to her "almost" St Pat's birthday. Mom wanted to keep it simple with creamy neutrals and soft purples and pinks. I couldn't have agreed more with this simple palette. It keeps all the focus on those big beautiful peepers she has! I could snuggle her up all day!

Fall Family Mini Session` https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2017/3/fall-family-mini-session We had to dodge some rain the first session we had planned and rescheduled for this gorgeous crisp fall day at College Lodge, Indiana, PA. WE met up for a quick session to photograph the family and their coordinating outfits were FAB! These kids were seriously so well behaved, so accommodating, and excited to get their pictures taken. I think they practiced their posing beforehand because they totally blew me away! 

Enjoy Loves!

So for MONTHS she's been keeping this little man's name a secret and she knows I hate secrets so, obviously, it's been killing me. 

So, without further adieu, welcome baby Abraham ! 

Obviously, Abe is my new best friend. 

Abe's dad is a fireman so of course we photographed him with all sorts of dad's gear to make his images extra special!

JJ Rex, Newborn https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2016/11/jj-rex-newborn Welllll it's Veteran's Day and while I would love to make a huge post about how much I love Sarah and Jay, and how excited I am that they welcomed Julia into the world, and how honored I am that they are my friends,  I don't really have time because I'm heading out on vacation. However, I'm so humbled that I know them, so humbled they are both Vets, and to give them a special gift on Veteran's Day, I wanted to share some first glimpses of miss Julia Jane. I really can't put into words how happy I am for you both, this was a long time coming, and she couldn't have picked better parents to be hers.

Christmas Petite Studio Sessions https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2016/10/christmas-petite-studio-sessions Well I have had so many calls and emails asking about these, and they have finally been announced! Space is limited, however weekends are available starting November 5. These are great Christmas presents and cards! Every year I take photos of all my children and nephew and make my mom a collage that fits into the same frame. So each year we put the new images of the babies up on the wall! This has been such an awesome gift; what grammy doesn't love showing off her little babes?! 

These petite sessions are perfect for little ones that might not normally be able to sit through a full session. We are relaxed, giggle, tell jokes, and have a good time! My studio is centrally located in downtown Indiana, PA and has loads of parking and is easy to locate. So no worries about rain, not enough space (I have a big studio!) and my studio is handicapped accessible. 


Join us for the fun!

The Blazavitch family have been long time clients and friends, and I'm so blessed that they keep coming back to have me continue to document their family as they grow! 

This day was so beautiful and warm and we got all this gorgeous golden light for our fall pictures. I couldn't have asked for a better time!

Fall Mini Session, Raymond Family https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2016/10/fall-mini-session-raymond-family These guys have been coming to me since Chrystie was pregnant with Carter. I have watched their family grow, and shared a LOT of laughs with them, this day was no different! We had a great time catching up, giving lots of hugs, and bribing the kids with gummy bears (I have no shame).

I am so excited to share these images with them and continue to watch their family grow. I mean seriously, these kids literally grow a foot every time i see them.

It was truly magical, Laura planned every detail and this was a wedding for the books. She radiated happiness and danced all day! When you find a man that smiles at you this way, you don't let him go! I'm so happy for this wonderful couple and their family, today was truly beautiful. 

Enjoy a few (a few yes, i have SO MANY!) of their memories from today. And Laura and Bill, enjoy the wonderful honeymoon you have planned! I hope you get to peek at these before you board the plane :) 




These two surprised their guests with a perfectly choreographed waltz ! They are fabulous dancers! 




I know Laura loved every single second of dancing at the reception, and it was a packed dance floor!

Fall Family Pictures, The Neese's https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2016/10/fall-family-pictures-the-neeses I was really excited to meet up with the Neese family because I hadn't seen little Gabriella since her newborn session. She is a DOLL! And every year Colton gets so much taller ... I told him to stop eating so that he stayed little forever, he didn't seem too enthused at the idea. 

We met up at a favorite spot near their home and spent an hour laughing and trying to catch the dog / kids / a caterpillar

We definitely caught some smiles! Check it:

MY teenager: The Sophia https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2016/9/my-teenager-the-sophia I made this person! Seriously?! I really did.

We had some fun in the studio and in the area surrounding.... jsut scouted some spots, walked around in alleys toting a 11ft light stand, we didn't look weird or anything....

It was so much fun! And I have some updated images to put on my walls. About 30 minutes, 30 images, and a lot of laughs. Don't you want to hook your "tween" or teen up with a fun session just to show them soem love and let them be THEM?

I love shooting in natural morning lights, super clean and fresh. And Hello, my littles, gosh! So sweet and lovely! They are always snuggling! This is how I find them sleeping on the daily ....

Summer is almost over?!?! Noooooooo! https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2016/8/summer-is-almost-over-noooooooo I keep hearing my kids counting down the days until school starts with dread...it can't almost be over. It just can't.

I haven't blogged in months, and summer is why. I love summer i love kayaking, camping, playing in the sprinkler, drinking wine on the patio while my girls play in the woods. And the BEACH, oh the BEACH! I can still taste the crabcakes and rumrunners. Summer jus isn't the same without the beach!

So I've been enjoying family time, buying a new house (yep!) and working on updating all my studio samples, backdrops and props. This year, is going to be AWESOME! i have so much in store for all y'all (you heard me)

So with summer coming to a close I want to offer you something super fabulous. A chance to get some sweet , warm, hazy pics of those gorgeous littles that you have, or of you and your people, or your sweet new babe. Whoever you are, whoever you love, let's capture it. Let's look back in 2 years at those photos and think "my lawd, what a hot, hiiiiilarious, awsomefun summer that was!"

Hope on over to my new home studio, we got lotsa land and lotsa places to take some gorgeous photos. Takes about 20 minutes, and BLAM! you have some digitals you can print anywhere, anytime, and enjoy for years. Don't let this lfie go by so quickly, stop time and make a moment stick for a lifetime. Right now you can grab up a sweet deal on a mini session~

Wanna see a few of the new spot? Check it out!

Wild Things Summer mini sessions https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2016/5/wild-things-summer-mini-sessions Grey and I had the BEST time finding cool spots in the forest, hunting monsters and critters, rolling down hills, looking through my telescope, and swinging from trees. We found that amazing golden hour light in the evening after dinner and created some serious magic. It was laid back, and most importantly, FUN! 

Wild Things mini sessions are available for the summer and are for both boys and girls. We will talk to figure out what lives in your kiddos imagination and see if we can create something magical together. 

 Evening Session at 6pm and  will include a private gallery with 10-20 images to preview, and includes:

1- 8x10 print

1 -11x14 large format print

4- 5x7 gift prints

The fee is $175 for these sessions and is good through the end of August, 2016


**A digital option is available to purchase all digital images taken from session for $99

Open Studio Sessions https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2016/3/open-studio-sessions This was the first of (hopefully) many Open Studio weekends! We had a GREAT time! open Studio is a fantastic and quick way to get some amazing images of your family and kiddos. A simple and low session fee, and you just purchase whatever prints or products you would like once you get your online ordering gallery. 

I have a few rooms in my home that I've slowly been working on art pieces and collages for. I can't be the only one! Thus, the Open Studio concept was born. This is the perfect, no-obligations way, to spruce up your home, work on some specific groupings or change out that big 20x30 over the mantle! You're not locked into a minimum order amount, and you purchase whatever you would like. 

Families really enjoyed coming in and updating a family picture! We took some great shots of the kids with my spring sets as well and they were a huge hit! Each Open Studio weekend will have an opportunity for a simple family photo as well as a fully themed set for the kids! Backdrops will be announced via the emailed updates list, so make sure you email me to be added so that you can be updated on the newest sales and specials at the studio! I had delicious cookies / bribes for the kiddos from Six Hand Bakery in Indiana. They.Are.Amaze!

Here's a glimpse into all the fun we had!

What a gorgeous studio newborn and family session! https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2016/3/what-a-gorgeous-studio-newborn-and-family-session I've known Jess since college, I used to pick on her after she got married about her "5 year plan" for having kiddos. She finally took the plunge and I think she's pretty over the moon with that decision :) 
They brought big brother in for some 4th Birthday pictures, we do one every year with balloons to mark his age, what an awesome collage that will be when he's all grown up! A glimpse back through time to all the birthdays. 

We have the newest addition and took some beautiful, simple images for mom of sweet baby girl, as well as some of the family. I know she loves candid, fresh and modern shots with interaction and smiles. I think we found the perfect balance! We even got Big brother to help out with his new sis for some sibling shots.

Jonell Feulmer and Yuwan Santhiapillai Wedding https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2014/7/jonell-feulmer-and-yuwan-santhiapillai-wedding This lovely wedding took place at The Chadwick, Wexford PA. 

Jonell strolled down the aisle with the scent of the gorgeous fresh floral arrangements floating through the air in the bright outdoor patio. The couple exchanged vows in front of their family and friends and we grabbed some quick portraits following the ceremony. Even though it was HOT with temps soaring over 92 that day, the bridal party "hung in there" and were awesome! 



The guests enjoyed gorgeous cookies and treats compliments of the couple's families. They spent weeks preparing for the big day and no one was left wanting for anything! This wedding lasted until quite late as guests danced the night away!    

The perfect end to the perfect night. Congratulations Yuwan and Jonell!

Stock Wedding, Indiana Country Club, Indiana, PA https://www.juliebeephotography.com/blog/2013/8/stock-wedding-indiana-country-club-indiana-pa I have so many beautiful images from Betsee and Ben's wedding, it was hard to choose! The image below of the bride in the garden is my absolute favorite and I think she looked stunning. Both the ceremony and reception were held at the Indiana Country Club, Indiana, PA. Although, the bridal portraits in the grape arbors and corn field were taken at Ben's family estate. 

I just love all the warm summery light, more to come!
