Our Wedding

At sunset on September 19th, Josh and I were married lakeside at Woodloch Resort in the Pocono mountains in front of all our family and friends. I can't express adequately in words how special the day was to both of us. After a long year of wedding planning, everything culminated into the perfect day we hoped it would be.

I spent the morning getting ready with my bridesmaids, mom, and mother-in-law  at one of the guest houses at the resort. Since the ceremony wasn't until 6 PM, we were able to take our time getting ready while sipping mimosas.

After we were ready, we headed over to the mill for our first look. Seeing Josh for the first time  was one of the most special parts of our wedding day. We were both overcome with emotion and our photographer Ashley Lynn Fry captured this beautifully on camera.

 After our first look, we headed over to the Inn on the shuttle:

We took a few more photos at the venue and waited for our guests to arrive. Then it was time for the ceremony!

After our unique ceremony, which was a mix of Christian and Jewish traditions, we took a few more photos and headed inside for our cocktail hour. We said hello to as many people as possible and all of a sudden it was time for the reception!

After our intros and first dances we had a few AMAZING toasts given by my dad, Josh's brother Seth, and my maid of honor Diana. Then we ate dinner and cut our cake:

Then it was finally time for dancing!

Needless to say, our reception was awesome, and although we opted for an extra hour at the venue, I wished it could have been even longer! The dance floor was packed all night and I basically never stopped dancing.

Afterwards, everyone came back to our guest house and we had a huge bonfire/after party which didn't end until 4 AM.

The weekend didn't stop there! We hosted a breakfast on Saturday morning for our guests, and then checked out a few of Woodloch's amenities including the hot tub and paddleboats on the lake.

Josh and I are so grateful for our amazing friends and family, who all traveled significant distances to attend our wedding. We are loving married life so far and are so happy to finally be husband and wife. Hopefully I'll get a chance to blog about our honeymoon in the near future, and I'll definitely post our professional photos once we get those back as well!
