Chelsea & Nate
Scenic Village at Harvest Drive
Juliana Laury Photography | Chester County, Lehigh Valley, and Montgomery County Wedding Photographer
Closing out the year always holds a particular significance to me. Having that last wedding be two close friends who you have known for years elevates that significance to something really special and unique.
You see, I’ve known Chelsea and Nate and their entire story for as long as I’ve known my next door neighbors Jake & Jordan (you might recognize their wedding from my blog 2 years ago). I’ve always known I would photograph their wedding, but what I DIDN’T know was that I would also be photographing their proposal…which happened in my living room on New Year’s Day! It was my first time picking up a camera since Johnny was born 6 weeks prior, and it was as much a whirlwind for them as it was for us! But we pulled it off together, Chelsea was shocked, and I knew I’d be watching her walk down the aisle with my camera in hand once again. And just as I predicted there I was, standing next to Nate as he bawled his eyes out, telling him it was time to turn around and see his bride. There’s a real intimacy to a friendship that forms after being a part of something like this, and I’m happy to say that Chelsea and Nate have been more than clients from the very beginning. I am so happy for these two and I hope these photographs did their day justice. I love you guys!
