Erin & Justin’s Wedding | Cairnwood Estate – Bryn Athyn

Living in Pennsylvania, the Winter storms can be brutal, but at least I get the chance to look back at the beautiful summer weddings I’ve had the opportunity to photograph over the years. Erin and Justin’s was no exception. Holding the nuptials in a church with a wonderful ceremony, they had their reception at the historic estate of Cairnwood in Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania. It was like a fairy tale, and the grounds were absolutely gorgeous! It was the perfect backdrop for their rustic, Disney, and geek inspired wedding in September. In between, we all stopped at Penn State Abington where the couple first met, to take some memorable photographs there as well. All in all, it was a great day, and Erin and Justin (along with their whole entourage) were absolutely wonderful to work with!

You may also remember this happy couple from the engagement session with their adorable dog, Sebastian from last March! He made a brief cameo during their special day as well.
