Please Touch Museum weddings all seemingly have a whimsical feel that is absolutely unique. Sarah and Chris’ wedding defined their love for each other, their adorable daughter Ella, and of course the family and friends who they love so much. Beautiful purple hues flow through the details of this elegant wedding. From the beautifully designed floral arrangements by Lamsback Floral Decorators, to the dazzling lights shining during the reception. Femina Photo + Design was behind the lens to witness all of the beauty that unfolded on this special day, and the lovely photos and story are below.
From the Photographer, Femina Photo + Design: “Sarah and Chris have a unique and touching story with the focus of their big day being their beautiful little girl Ella. Everything about their wedding day was about coming together as a family with a very emotional walk down the aisle. Chris was overcome with emotion as he saw Ella and then his beautiful bride Sarah coming down the aisle and the moment was absolutely precious.”
How They Met:
“Chris and I met on our first day of classes during our freshman year at Bucknell University. We learned that we had grown up near each other and became friends, but didn’t start dating until our senior year.”
“Chris knew that I’d want our daughter, Ella, involved in his proposal in some way, so he created a picture book that told our story together with pictures of us throughout our time dating. When I went to grab a book to read to Ella before her nap, Chris said he had a better one and gave me the book. I read it to Ella and the last page asked: “Will you marry me?”. Chris got on one knee and Ella and I both said yes. He put the ring on my finger and Ella got a Ring Pop to match. He had planned a dinner with both of our families for right after he popped the question so we got to celebrate with everyone right away!”
“Our planning process was relatively stress-free. We were careful when we picked our vendors because we wanted to work with people who would make the process easier for us. The team we had was great and made the planning process enjoyable for us.”
About the Venue | The Please Touch Museum:
“We wanted a venue that reflected us as a family. When we asked Ella what she wanted at the wedding, her only contribution was that she wanted to be able to ride a carousel. That narrowed the choices down pretty quickly! We loved the mix of elegance and whimsy that the Please Touch Museum provided and their staff and caterer were phenomenal to work with.”
“I don’t think we had much of an inspiration, but our main goal for the night was for our guests to have fun. We have so many people in our lives that have supported us to get to where we are. We wanted that night to really be a big thank you to them and a celebration of our gratitude for having such wonderful people around us.”
“My favorite memories were seeing Chris cry when I walked down the aisle with my dad and watching Chris dance with Ella during their father/daughter dance.”
“My biggest piece of advice would be to remember that, when all is said and done, that day is about celebrating the start of your marriage, not about the party you threw. Things will go wrong and it won’t be perfect and that’s okay because the end result will be the same. You’ll be married to the person you love and ready to start the next adventure together. Keeping that in mind makes it easier to not sweat the small stuff.”
