For my last wedding of the season, I traveled to the Peter Allen Inn & Event Center in Kinsman for Jessica and Joseph's celebration. These two opted for a small, intimate ceremony with their closest family and friends followed by a larger reception the following weekend in Pennsylvania. Have I mentioned that I love small weddings?! They are so personalized, they lend themselves to getting to know everyone so well throughout the day, and it's always such an honor to be part of such a small group of people who are witnesses, even if it is my job!
I started the day at the Peter Allen Inn & Event Center as Jessica and Joe each got ready separately. While they opted out of a first look, we did get some images of them side by side (not seeing each other!) as Jessica surprised Joe with a call on an antique military phone before their ceremony. Jessica and Joe's ceremony took place outside, and afterward we did portraits with their family and wedding party surrounded by gorgeous fall color. (This is what October weddings are all about!) As day turned into evening, we headed inside the inn to Heritage Hall for Jessica and Joe's dinner and reception. Jessica and Joe ended the night with a private last dance, just the two of them.
I am so happy for Jessica and Joe, and what a perfect day to end the season with! A few favorites are below!
