Lancaster, PA, a town that gracefully blends tradition with elegance. On a radiant summer Friday, with the sky painted with sunshine and fluffy clouds, this Stolzfus Homestead & Gardens wedding was more than just a wedding—with a venue as a canvas for a love story that’s influential, passionate, and deeply heartfelt.
Trisha, a health and fitness coach with a penchant for sustainable workouts, wore an aura of love that mirrored her philosophy of enjoying every moment. An epitome of consistency, her journey can be traced at Trisha Kimmel’s Instagram. Meanwhile, Kyle, with a voice that resonates in the sports world, brings lightness to any discussion on his podcast, ‘Mind the Mess’. Though their days are filled with individual pursuits, their love story was penned with shared adventures and memories, from the shores of Delaware to the heart of Pennsylvania.
The wedding’s ambiance, imagine a garden bathed in the hues of lilac purple and soft gray. This setting was a direct reflection of the bridesmaids’ dresses and the gentle gray suits worn by the groomsmen. Furthermore, the color palette, carefully chosen by Trisha, not only accentuated the venue’s natural elegance but also infused life into every captured moment. Consequently, each element, from the decor to their attire, blended seamlessly, striking a perfect balance between standing out and feeling integrated with the picturesque setting.
Stolzfus Homestead & Gardens never ceases to amaze. Since my last visit, they’ve curated a new willow garden—an idyllic setting for that heart-throbbing ‘first look’. Knowing this, we carved out additional portrait time in Trisha and Kyle’s timeline, ensuring we encapsulated every mesmerizing corner of this haven.
Moreover, traditions flowed as freely as emotions that day. Firstly, there was the poignant ring blessing by Kyle’s parents, and then Trisha’s namesake aunt, who with warmth and joy, officiated their union. Additionally, Kyle’s aunts bestowed the heartening bread and wine blessing upon them—a symbol of their shared life that we couldn’t miss.
Yet, what stole a bit of limelight was the couple’s adorable goldendoodle, Sia. The sheer elation on Trisha’s face when Sia pranced in for the family photo is a memory etched in time. For a venue like Stolzfus Homestead to embrace these four-legged family members only adds to its charm.
“Erica did an INCREDIBLE job. The sneak peeks from our wedding day left us awestruck. She wasn’t just our photographer; she was a comforting presence, seamlessly blending into our day and even assisting with video footage. We couldn’t have made a better choice!”
Firstly, here’s raising a toast to a life filled with endless adventures and cherished moments. Furthermore, each memory, each laughter, and each tear shared speaks volumes of a journey that’s both unique and heartwarming. Undoubtedly, it has been a privilege to chronicle this chapter of your love story. As we look ahead, may your path be filled with more such memorable milestones, and remember, each chapter is just the beginning of another beautiful tale.
