Natalie and Ryan married at The Penn Stater Hotel in State College, PA in the heart of Happy Valley. They exchanged vows and promised to be best friends forever in the courtyard on a very bright and hot summer day. With their family and friends watching, Natalie and Ryan became husband and wife. After the ceremony concluded, we hopped aboard the famous (well at least it is famous in State College) blue bus that the Penn State Nittany Lion football team rides in.We headed to the Penn State campus for some bridal party photos, and had a lot of laughs watching the groomsmen redirect students so we could have Old Main all to ourselves.
In true Penn State fashion, we did a lot of fun poses, with a few serious ones mixed in here and there 😉 My favorite would have to be when Natalie asked if we could re-create the infamous pose from the movie Bridesmaids, which is something I haven’t done before, so we gave it a go, and I have to say, I think we did a pretty good job! Fast forward to the reception, which was absolutely STUNNING to see inside. Everything was going very smoothly, the bridal party was announced, there were toasts, the bride and groom had their first dance, and then it was time for the father/daughter dance.Oh no please tell me they aren’tgoing to dance to Butterfly Kisses! The only song that is guaranteed 100% to turn me into a sap and make me cry, every single time without fail! Ok, I can do this, (click the shutter) nope I’m crying and snapping. WHAT JUST HAPPENED???? Oh the bride and her dad thought that was way too boring, so they break out into dance with everything from Thriller, to Gangnam Style, complete with props and I have to say Natalie’s solo of the famous Beyonce moves in All the Single Ladies was the highlight for me (that and the Peachy Paterno ice cream from the Berkey Creamery!
HANDS DOWN THE BEST FATHER DAUGHTER DANCE EVER!!!! They had the whole room clapping and cheering, and then ended their dance with Butterfly Kisses. Bravo!
