kristen & chuck | gathering place at darlington lake wedding photography

In early October, I stood beside one of my closest friends as she married her other half. Since I was in the wedding, these images were photographed by Kristen Wynn of Kristen Wynn Photography, and edited by me. Many thanks, Kristen! You did an amazing job!

Oh, and the Kristen-bride/Kristen-photographer thing wasn’t confusing at all. And by that, I mean it totally was.

I was obsessed with this ring shot the moment I saw it! LOVE. gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer2gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer3gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer4gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer5gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer6gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer7gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer8gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer9gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer10gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer11

So, it’s typical (if time allows) for us to photograph the bride & groom individually with each of their bridal party members doing something silly, in addition to the traditional posed photos. As a bridesmaid, I wasn’t anywhere near the boys when these photos were being taken, and I didn’t stop laughing for about ten minutes when I came across this set while editing. gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer12gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer13gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer14gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer15gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer16gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer17gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer18gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer19gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer20gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer21gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer22gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer23gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer24gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer25gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer26gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer27gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer28gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer29gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer30gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer31

I joked with Kristen (bride Kristen – see? I told you it was confusing) that when I came across this photo of the moment before the First Look, she made the exact face I would have expected her to make. So sweet, and so funny to see the anticipation on her face! gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer32gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer33gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer34gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer35gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer36gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer37gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer38gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer39gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer40gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer41gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer42gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer43gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer44gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer45gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer46gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer47gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer48gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer49gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer50gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer51gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer52gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer53gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer54gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer55gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer56gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer57gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer58gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer59gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer60gathering-place-at-darlington-lake-beaver-county-wedding-photographer61
