Seval & Matt's Fun, Laid-Back and Authentic Fancy Picnic Wedding at Burnside Plantation in Bethlehem, PA
Wedding: 3 June 2017 | Posted: 12 October 2017
It was basically a dream of a day for a June wedding, the reason people have been having June weddings for decades: sunny, temperate, a light breeze, no rain. Rarely have we gotten to photograph a wedding on a more perfect day.
And rarely, too, a day more perfectly suited to the couple at the center of it all. Maybe it's that we know them so well, but the day Seval & Matt created to celebrate their marriage seemed so completely steeped in and built around them that you could feel the two of them in every detail. Seval's knee-length dress was so perfectly her that a long dress would have felt odd; Matt and the groomsmen always wear Clarks; Stanley has DJ'd all our dance parties for time out of mind; Shanelle knows the couple so intimately that her wedding ceremony felt like having a conversation with friends. Seval created hundreds of paper flowers for bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces, and custom favor/escort card jars for every guest. She wore one pearl bracelet from each important woman in her life, and Matt wore his grandfather's pocket watch. Their dog, Kitap, was the sweetest little ring assistant and a highlight of the reception.
All this is to say that it's an incomparable privilege to photograph the wedding of two such good friends, so thank you, Matt & Seval, for that privilege. We love you both and wish you every possible happiness in your life together. If you love Matt & Seval even a fraction as much as we do, enjoy checking out our favorite images from their wedding day, and send them all your good vibes and happy wishes in the comments.
