Tony and Karyne met in 2000 at the Eldridge Park Elementary School when they were in the same second grade class, although their love story didn’t officially start until their senior year of high school. The couple’s longtime friends mentioned to us how Tony had always looked at Karyne as his “dream girl.” Well, he definitely gave his dream girl a proposal to swoon over! Tony is a pilot and took Karyne away on a romantic sunset flight over some beaches in their Florida town. When it was time to land the plane, he landed it on a runway that had 200 candles set up that said, “marry me.” Of course she said, “Yes!”
“The best day ever” (direct quote from the happy couple J) was held at The Gables at Chadds Ford. It was a beautiful summer day! The sun was shinning bright, but it wasn’t the typical egg-frying June weather. As Karyne and her girls popped some champagne to celebrate the day we, were excited to photograph all of her Pinterest worthy wedding details. From her deep purple and green color palette to all the handmade decorations Karyne and her mother created, we loved it all! After Karyne gave us full rein of her wedding details, it was time for her to put on her gorgeous Ball Gown wedding dress, which was perfectly pair with some glittery Kate Spade sneakers. Seriously a girl after our own hearts!
Karyne and Tony’s first look gave us yet another reason why we love first looks. There were a couple of happy tears, matched with big smiles, followed by a lot of sweet giggling. Tony was so enamored by Karyne in her wedding dress and made sure she spun around so he could see her complete look. After taking some bridal party shots at the antique shop next door, it was time for them to say, “I do.” The ceremony was held in the pretty Gables courtyard under an outdoor pergola rapped with green vines. Surrounded by the people closest to them, Tony and Karyne became more than just former classmates and high school sweethearts—they became husband and wife. Congratulations Tony and Karyne!
