Spring Wedding at Stock's Manor | Mechanicsburg, PA | Sarah & Marcus

A few weeks back I got my first opportunity to shoot a wedding with my dear friend, Kaitlin, from Kait Bailey Photography. I met Kaitlin back in August when I attended a Pursuit gathering at another member's residence out in Highland, MD. We immediately clicked and when she asked me to be her second, I was so flattered.

This uniquely memorable wedding took place at a seriously beautiful estate in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania called Stock's Manor. Kait's wedding couple, Sarah and Marcus, were an absolute dream to work with from the very beginning. I met Marcus first when I arrived, who introduced me to his wedding party. Even as an outsider, I felt the camaraderie among them all. It was an amazing experience! I think we should all desire to have such great and loyal friends as Sarah and Marcus have.

There were a few other details to Sarah and Marcus' day that pulled at my heartstrings. The main thing being the couple's wedding bands were plated in gold from Marcus' mother's wedding ring. SO beautiful. Before departing for the ceremony, Marcus and his small group shared a special prayer which I knew meant so much to him. Later at their reception, another incredible thing happened: Marcus' grandfather (who couldn't make it to the wedding) gave a beautiful blessing for the newly married couple over video. You read that right. How much are these two souls loved by their family? I'm guessing an infinite amount. 

I hope I get the chance to return back to Stock's Manor in the future. Until then, I think these fab photos of Sarah and Marcus will suffice. Don't forget to scroll to the bottom of this post to see more recent wedding pictures!
