Stoltzfus Homestead Wedding | Racheal & Frank

stoltzfus homestead wedding

What started as a shared love of Harley’s and food blossomed into a friendship, a relationship, a family, and now a marriage. From the day we photographed their engagement, we knew these two were meant for each other.  Their playfulness and quick wit with each other was apparent and we knew we were in for a treat on their wedding day. It was truly our pleasure to document Racheal and Frank’s wedding this past weekend as they celebrated their love with their closest friends and family. Their relationship is proof that love is still cherished, sought after, and worth fighting for.

The couple chose Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens as their venue. Tucked out of the way of the hustle and bustle of Lancaster city, Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens offers an “all inclusive” location.  With separate locations for the bride and groom, they offer a perfect setup. The ladies used the Carriage House for their final preparations, while the guys hung out on a deck overlooking the pond that is located on the back of the property.

Racheal’s dress is absolutely stunning. The detailing. The lace. The matching cathedral length veil. A perfect blend of vintage, classic, and modern. And those SHOES!lancaster wedding photographer

Megan, of Pearls & Petals, not only created this beautiful bouquet, but was also the couple’s wedding day coordinator. stoltzfus homestead carriage house wedding details

Every detail is special on a wedding day. Racheal carried a handkerchief from Frank’s grandmother and used another from her own grandmother to wrap around her bouquet. classic bridal portraits stoltzfus homestead wedding

Rather than flowers, the bridesmaids carried parasols. We LOVE when our couples put a unique twist on their day!stoltzfus homestead wedding april and bryan photography

During the engagement session, we discovered that Frank considers sunglasses a part of his wardrobe. I will admit that the sunglasses topped off the gentleman’s wedding attire. lancaster wedding photographer

Check out those shiny shoes! Racheal’s vision included a vintage flare, and these shoes definitely remind us of old black and white films.stoltzfus homestead and gardens wedding photographer
