It feels like only a few short months ago, I photographed Kate and Jake’s engagement session in downtown Bethlehem. On May 5th, they started their wedding day with a first look at Hotel Bethlehem. Picture this: Jake looking ever so handsome in his dress blues, seeing his beautiful bride for the first time, with family and friends as the backdrop. It was a perfect moment!
The ceremony was held outdoors at Blue Mountain, on a gorgeous day with the valley below in the background. After they were pronounced Mr. and Mrs., the newlyweds recessed down the aisle through the Arch of Swords where Kate and Jake stopped for a kiss and she was welcomed to the Marine Corps. Blue Mountain hosted the reception where Kate and Jake, their families, friends, and fellow Marines celebrated the day.
Seeing all of these men in uniform made me realize it truly was an honor being chosen to photograph the wedding of a Marine and his bride. Congratulations Kate and Jake!
