It’s official, Emily and Joe are now Mr. & Mrs. Lyon! Their gorgeous September Swan Harbor Farm wedding day was a truly beautiful celebration of two incredible people. Emily and Joe have known each other since high school and have basically been together ever since. High school sweethearts are always so special!!!! It goes without saying that this day was long anticipated and I know everyone was excited to celebrate Emily and Joe. I met these two because I photographed Joe’s sister’s wedding in 2017 and was so excited to be a part of this family’s special day again! These two are just the sweetest!

Swan Harbor Farm Wedding

We truly had a beautiful day for their wedding day! It was the kind of wedding day you dream about – perfect temperatures, gorgeous weather, and a slight breeze off the water. Emily and Joe couldn’t have asked for anything more! They chose to keep their wedding day traditional and opted for no first look. Watching Joe’s reaction when Emily came down the aisle was extra special knowing that! Swan Harbor Farm had the sweetest little ceremony space – I love how Emily and Joe decorated their arbor for the ceremony. It was quaint, simple, and gorgeous!!!

This gorgeous Havre de Grace wedding venue had some beautiful spots for wedding portraits. I was in heaven!! After some time with the newlyweds, it was time to head to their reception. The tented reception space had been transformed into a beautiful party! Filled with more green, ivory, and pale pink details, Emily and Joe were ready to celebrate with their guests. The entire day was emotional – but watching Emily’s mom and little sisters cry during her father + daughter dance was SO SWEET. It was definitely a special day! I really loved all of the little details Emily and Joe made sure to incorporate to make it a fun day for their guests… including the Prosecco fountain!

Emily and Joe, I hope Italy treated you well during your amazing honeymoon!! Thank you for letting me celebrate your beautiful day with you. Congratulations on tying the knot!
