Penn State Wedding - State College, Pennsylvania

Who would have thought that Ashley would be marrying a former Big Ten Football player? As we found out from the speeches at Ashley & Joe's reception, Ashley never wanted to date an athlete, especially a football player. Well this all changed when she met Joe.

Ashley & Joe's wedding day began at the Nittany Lion Inn located in State College, PA. Ashley and the girls were getting ready in a suite and just down the hall, the guys were doing the same…well kind of. It seemed more like a party! We couldn't believe how many people were in this hotel room! As the guys finished up, we headed back down to film Ashley putting on her dress and finalizing last minute details.

We made our way to the ceremony at Faith United Church of Christ, an historic church in the heart of downtown State College. What a beautiful church from the inside out! And after a short and sweet ceremony, we were covering the photo session alongside Suzanne of Suzanne Winter Photography.

As we finished up at the church, we headed to the Pennsylvania State University sign just outside Beaver Stadium. The weather was beautiful and we got some great shots not only there, but also at Old Main and the Alumni Gardens.

The reception was held back at the Nittany Lion Inn and hosted by DJ Mike of High Impact Entertainment. The ballroom was absolutely stunning and the tables had some of the most unique photos on them. Ashley & Joe had their photos taken at many of the popular spots on the Penn State Campus. They then framed the photos and had the building names as each table name for the reception. Really cool idea!

The night was full of dancing, great speeches from friends and family, and of course plenty of fun times. Thanks to Ashley & Joe and their amazing families for allowing us to capture your special day. We had a blast and hope you did too. Enjoy!
