Happy Wednesday, Friends! I have taken a few days off to spend with friends and family but I’m back! With several weddings in the near future we are reminiscing about my son’s wedding and festivities last year. So today I’m sharing some of the engagement photos taken by the ultra talented photographer, Libby Smith!
As luck and good fortune would have it, the family that lived next door to us for the last 15 years is the Smith family. Not only are they the absolute sweetest folks ever, but Libby Smith, the mom, is also a talented photographer. So when our son, Chase got engaged, Libby kindly offered to take their engagement pictures. We were thrilled! And who better to capture the essence of our son’s engagement than someone who watched him grow from a teenager into a young man?
Libby brainstormed with Chase and his fiancé, Brie to choose a spot for the photo session. It is a tough choice because Bucks County, Pennsylvania is so beautiful and picturesque. They decided on the Fonthill Castle and Moravian Tile Factory in Doylestown, built by Henry Chapman Mercer around 1912. Combine a gorgeous setting with a young couple in love and it’s magic! Here are a few of the hundreds of pictures taken by Libby.
The tree lined road leading to Fonthill Castle. The pictures were taken last summer.
And when your son looks at someone like this, you know she is THE one. (And we adore her too!)
This picture is one of my favorites! I’m thinking our future grandchildren will be pretty darn adorable.
Luckily the pictures came back in plenty of time for the bridal shower so we had several copies framed at the shower and used a few at the wedding reception, too. I know Chase and Brie will always cherish these pictures! A few short months after these pictures were taken, Chase and Brie got married under another tree and are living happily ever after!
Usually after a few year’s time, no one remembers the name of their photographer, but we will always remember the day Chase and Brie spent with Libby and her gift to them. She truly captured their love and personalities in these pictures. So, thank you again, my dear friend for this gift to our family and for your love all these years. We miss you and your sweet family.
And a quick note to everyone in the path of Hurricane Florence, please stay safe. Our prayers to the evacuees, their families and also to our law enforcement and rescue workers. Godspeed. xo Dell
