Perfect details combined with gorgeous florals in a beautiful and iconic location. This Winter Bride styled shoot was all about the bride! Her hair and makeup were stunning. Her gown was a beaded show-stopper with brilliant back detailing and a soft, flowy train. She was adorned in sparkling wedding jewelry with an artful custom made bridal set.
With soft colors, the decor and design paired perfectly with the venue space. The ceremony took place on an outdoor deck backed by nature with the mountains in the distance. The reception took place at the beautiful Nittany Lion Inn which created wedding photo magic. A hot chocolate bar was perfect to warm up after the ceremony or twirling on the outdoor patio under cafe lights. Some fun was had on a gold bar cart before capturing some final moments by the fireplace and on the balcony lit by the sparkling chandelier of your dreams.
About the Shoot
I am just in awe of all the talent and heart there is in the local Central PA wedding industry. This shoot is what Penn State wedding dreams are made of. I wanted to highlight the beauty and unique details of a winter wedding at this iconic venue and I was blessed to pull together an incredible team of vendors to bring this vision to life. It was inspired by the gorgeous views from the Penn Stater Hotel and the classic beauty of the Nittany Lion Inn.
Thank You to this Incredible Team!

I attended the Central PA Bridal Expo for the first time this year. It was at the beautiful Penn Stater Hotel in State College. It was wonderful connecting with brides and vendors alike. Some brides had been following me online and wanted to connect and I saw several people I knew who were getting married. It was an exciting event.
As you would expect, there were all different types of vendors to help brides plan their dream weddings. The event was sponsored by Formalities, a bridal and formal wear shop in Bellefonte, and the gowns they showed were just beautiful. One of the cool things about the show is that models dressed as brides would walk through the entire space so brides could view the dresses as they checked out other vendors. What a great idea?!
There were representatives from some gorgeous venues, a harpist, caterers (I got hungry just looking at the pictures of their food!), bakers, photographers, videographers, donuts (Duck Donuts was there), DJs, event rental companies, florists and many more. RE Farm Cafe (a local wedding venue that also caters) was next to me and I tried their vegetarian sushi. It was seriously delicious and the ladies were so lovely.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by. It was great connecting with you all and happy wedding planning!
