On one of the hottest days of the summer this gorgeous couple tied the knot. The ceremony, although outside and in the heat, was absolutely beautiful. Belle Voir Manor in Bucks County, PA hosted both the ceremony and reception. They also provide a perfect location for photos of the family, couple, and bridal party. This photo was taken after the couple's first look in the back of Belle Voir Manor. The venue overlooks the Delaware River and has a large field in the back of the space. We opted to try and stay cool by keeping the photos in the shade for as much as possible which was easy with the trees along the river and in the field. I love the carefree feel to this photo. After the bride and groom see each other for the first time, whether during their first look or walking down the aisle, you can feel the nerves and tension release. After they are finally together and living the say that they planned for so long, nothing else matters. When they thought they would have been awkward in front of the camera they are actually at ease, enjoying each other's company and practically laughing at the supposed awkwardness.
