Today’s real wedding is this gorgeous wedding shot by Chris Malpass Photography of Virginia! He says:

Sean and Jess invited me to spend an extended October weekend with them and their families during the lead-up to their wedding ceremony. I became part of the family for those three days — and I enjoyed every moment of it! The beautiful landscapes in Exton, PA were breathtaking during the peak of the fall season and provided a perfect canvas to capture the celebrations that followed.

I was able to pull the happy couple away for a few moments just before their rehearsal. We set out on an adventure at the sprawling estate owned by the bride’s family. The goal for me was to capture the excitement and affection between the two lovebirds before the blur of the wedding began. Sean and Jess were adorable and so so excited throughout the session.

The next morning I became the bride’s private paparazzo as she metamorphosed into a breathtaking bride. Sean and Jess had a beautiful traditional Catholic ceremony at SS. Philp and James Parish in Exton, PA.

The beautiful low-key ceremony transitioned to the reception at the Downingtown Country Club in Downingtown, PA. Once again, I stole Sean and Jess away for a few moments while we set out on adventure around the beautiful grounds of the country club. The newlyweds were beaming throughout the experience.

We then made our way back to the reception where the happy couple were introduced and got the party started. Tom Tolnay kept the celebration going throughout the night with his mix of live music and party mixes.

A glorious weekend in an amazing part of Pennsylvania, with an equally wonderful Bride and Groom, concluded as the room filled with loved ones dispersed; intoxicated with excitement and hope for the newly formed union.
