Ya’ll, i’m obsessed with all the details of Shantelle and Ed’s wedding at The Nature Inn! Shantelle and Ed met through Penn State’s Urban Gaming Club which Shantelle affectionately described as “a bunch of nerds running around campus with Nerf guns.” These two chose to incorporate a few different “nerdy” elements into their wedding and they came together flawlessly!
Obviously if you know me you know I love Harry Potter, so clearly the golden snitch favors were pretty high up on my list of favorites when it came to this wedding. (I still have mine, I couldn’t eat it, it was just too cute!) In addition to HP, the celestial/LOTR/Elvish elements were also combined flawlessly to create a magical day.
One of my favorite parts of this day was Shantelle and Eds first look. I was blown away with the emotion that Ed showed when he first saw his bride! The moment these two shared was one that they truly will remember forever. It’s why I highly recommend a first look to all of my couples.
After the first look we headed off for family photos and bridal party photos, and this bridal party knew how to have a good time! Everyone was just so happy to be there to support their friends union, and they really made the day extra special and fun! They really brought the fun and entertainment all throughout the evening. They also gave some of the best toasts i’ve ever heard! Laughter, tears, happiness, sincerity, the entire gamut of emotions was felt by all during the course of this wedding day!
Of course we couldn’t finish out the evening without a Penn State group shot. Then, a little fun with one of the animals The Nature Inn had as part of their decor. No bears were harmed in the photographing of this wedding 😉
