Joel + Shoshana's wedding at Orchard Beach Assembly was simply put - Beautiful and Fun! I wanted to share a little bit of backstory with you all as Joel + Shoshana thoughtfully wove their love story throughout their entire day!



The Backstory: Joel + Shoshana have known each other since high school. They always enjoyed walks together around his parents house in Northeast, PA. The views of the lake and the vineyards is really something beautiful if you have ever visited them! Joel + Shoshana were planning a trip to Arizona to visit Shoshana's sister and go see the Grand Canyon. Shoshana thought he would plan to propose at the Canyon, however he had other plans!


The night before they planned to leave for Arizona, his family planned a last minute party for their Aunt Sheri at their house. Shoshana almost didn't go because she thought she wasn't going to have enough time to pack. Shoshana toughed it out and went, hoping to be back in time to finish packing. Right before dinner, Joel wanted to go for a walk to see the sunset. When they got to the most beautiful part where you can see the sunset, Joel got down on one knee. He was tearing up and asked Shoshana to marry him! Once he stood up and she said "omg Yes!!" he kissed and hugged her and she basically had to hold him up because he told her "I'm going to pass out".


Behind the scenes was his sister who had hidden behind a bush to take pictures of their special moment and his ENTIRE family peaking at them from the house with their faces against the window and cheering!

The morning pre-ceremony went so smoothly. Joel and the guys spent the morning relaxing not too far from the venue & I got to work on bridal details when I arrived at the Church. All the details fell in place so smoothly. Just after finishing up on the details, we did some champagne celebrations with the girls. I loved working with Shoshana's bridal party! The girls were so sweet and easy to work with. We had a lot of laughs together during the champagne pop (which the bride was terrified of the cork). Thankfully her girls were there to help her make it happen!


Joel & Shoshana's wedding day was the perfect summer day. Family & friends came from all over & filled the beautiful Orchard Beach Assembly Church in Northeast, PA. Then they all celebrated at The Big Red Barn at the Farm, it was a perfect spot for their reception!



Joel & Shoshana, thank you for allowing us the honor of being a part of preserving these memories. We hope that you always find joy as you look back on the moments and people that surrounded you when you became husband and wife.


Congratulations!
