Kayla & Connor’s Philadelphia Fall Boutique Brunch Wedding

October 28, 2021

I had the honor of capturing Kayla & Connor’s intimate wedding ceremony in Ashland last year amid the pandemic. They opted to get married among their family members in Kayla’s parents’ backyard and it was a beautiful day! You can view their blog post over here – we caught some incredibly gorgeous sunset photos & a few with Kayla’s dog!

They still wanted to have their original reception to celebrate with their friends and decided to do a brunch reception this year in Philly! Kayla & Connor had lived in Philly for a while and absolutely fell in love with the area before they moved back to VA and bought a house to settle into!

It was the most gorgeous fall wedding day in Philly and I was so honored to capture their big celebration! Their brunch wedding was incredibly unique (certainly the first one that I’VE ever photographed!) and her details were so gorgeous!! They even took the time to celebrate Connor’s grandma with a birthday cake since they were sharing the special day together 🙂 You’ll have to scroll down for Kayla’s beautiful reception dress and the gorgeous fall colors we got for their portraits!

Kayla & Connor, congratulations on over 1 year of married life together! I hope you enjoyed celebrating with everyone and that the day was even more fun and special than you could have originally imagined!

Venue: Valley Green Inn

Gown Designer: Anne Barge

I loved how they pulled everyone up on the dance floor at the end of each of the dances!
