Y’all get ready to scroll through the lilac wedding that dreams are made of! Delia and Matt’s wedding day was as beautiful as it was fun, and was filled with so many smiles, helping hands, and epic dance moves. Heading into any wedding day, I often get pretty nervous! But before Delia and Matt’s wedding day, I felt a little extra nervous. You see, we were visiting a few super gorgeous locations for their ceremony and portraits throughout the day, and we weren’t quite sure if Mother Nature would let that happen. There was a big chance of rain in the forecast, but we were all hopeful that it would hold off long enough for us to get some gorgeous photos with pretty views.
Thankfully, the rain did just that, and held off until everyone was dancing the night away safely under a tent during their reception! We got to visit SO many portrait locations, including Lake Scranton, which may or may not be one of my new favorite places for wedding day portraits!
Delia and Matt’s Glenmaura National Golf Club wedding day was one for the books, and I can’t wait for you to see just how beautiful their day was!
When my second photographer and I arrived at The Loft in Scranton, hair and makeup was well underway. Music was bumpin’ as hair was curled and lashes were applied. You could tell that everyone was truly so excited for all of the celebrations that were to come later in the day. I always know that I’m in for a treat of a wedding day when details are safely tucked away and ready for me when I arrive! That’s just what I found when I got to the Loft, and I was able to get started photographing everything right away. (A DREAM… especially when you see how gorgeous Delia’s details are!)
The morning progressed with the sweetest first look with Delia’s bridesmaids before Delia and Matt got to see each other for the first time! You could see any nerves and anxieties melt right into joy and excitement as they embraced for the first time in their wedding attire. After their first look, it was time to get these two hitched!
Delia and Matt were married in the most gorgeous Catholic cathedral in the heart of Scranton, PA, surrounded by all of their closest family and friends.
One of my favorite parts of their ceremony was watching these two exchange smiles and knowing glances up on the altar. You could feel their excitement t0 make things official from afar!
After their ceremony, it was time to hit the gas pedal for portraits! We drove over to Lake Scranton where we rocked our way through wedding party and couple’s portraits with some of the most beautiful views in PA. Delia and Matt surround themselves with the best kind of people. Their wedding party was incredible helpful, yet ready to party at a moment’s notice (my kind of people!). It was the perfect balance that made the day so much fun as things ran so smoothly. Portraits were done in the blink of an eye, and soon, it was time to head over to Glenmaura National Golf Club for their wedding reception!
As fellow Penn Staters, I knew Delia and Matt would throw a good party, but nothing could have prepared me for how good! These two pulled out all the stops with a gorgeous tented reception dripping in florals, and while the space was absolutely stunning, what was most memorable was the people! Delia’s sister and Matt’s brother shared some of the sweetest toasts that had everyone laughing, and crying, and laughing until they cried. When it was time to dance, the floor lit up and didn’t stop for a beat all night. Everyone was so ready to celebrate these two!
I could go on and on about how special Delia and Matt’s Glenmaura National Golf Club wedding day was, but let’s be honest, the photos are what you are really here for! Before you get to scrolling, just a quick thank you to Delia and Matt: Thank you, friends! It was such a joy to be your wedding photographer! I’m wishing you a lifetime of love, happiness, and Penn State football wins!

The sweetest reaction from Matt!
I mean… can we talk about how epic this church is?! Gorgeous!
We headed over to Lake Scranton for some wedding party and couple’s portraits which totally reminded me of this scene from Harry Potter!
We hit the ground running with some more couple’s portraits at Glenmaura!
Hi, Meg! That gal next to me in the middle photo is one of my best pals who I got to hug for the first time in a few years!
And then it was time to party!
