I’ve done countless weddings over the years all the while having a ton of fun. This wedding was just different. I really felt in my element with Chris and Amanda. There were moments throughout the day where their friends and family made me feel like I really belonged with them every step of the way. This was truly a family affair, even down to the venue. The prestigious Stirling Guest Hotel in Reading, PA is such a spectacular venue for a wedding. Spending the day in and around the Stirling brought back so many memories to my own wedding day, which made this wedding that much more special to me. Check out some of the highlights of the day in this highlight trailer.
Another perk to working this wedding, was the familiarity of the vendors I’ve spent so much time with over the years. James from B&B Light and Sound brought down the house with the tunes he played, so much so that some clothes even started coming off. I’m not sure if Anneliese from Photography by McDonough caught any images if this, but I had to post it. Check it out in this Instagram post.
The Sutliff gang will be celebrating another wedding next year, and I’m wondering if this party is an indicator of how next year’s wedding will be? The future groom almost went #fullfrontal (okay just an open shirt), all at the behest of one of the guests. #wedding #weddingvideo #weddinvideographer #bride #groom #berkscountywedding #readingPAwedding #stirlingguesthotel #paganoIdo #sexyback #wobbledance
From the moment I arrived to the bridal suite, I think I had a constant smile on my face, from how fun this bridal party was. It’s been a long time since I was a day drinker, but at 10:30 AM, watching someone trying to uncork a bottle of the bubbly and having very little success, I just had to capture it on camera.
All in all this was a spectacular day. I don’t think anyone thought that on September 30th we’d be wearing sweaters in a tent, but the day heated up real fast. I’m always thankful when I can spend time with such wonderful people. Congratulations Chris and Amanda!!!
