Rainy Wedding at Philander Chase Knox Estate

Kevin & Emily

Photographing Kevin and Emily’s wedding at the Philander Chase Knox Estate in Valley Forge National Park over the weekend was an absolute dream, despite the rain that persisted throughout most of the day. This historic estate in Malvern, PA, provided a stunning backdrop for their whimsical garden party celebration.

The day began with a steady drizzle, but that didn’t dampen the spirits of Kevin and Emily. They embraced the weather with such grace and positivity, setting a wonderful tone for the entire day. We even managed to find a dry spot under a huge tree in front of the mansion for their first look. Watching Kevin’s face light up as he saw Emily in her elegant gown brought a huge smile to our faces. His clean black suit complemented her gown perfectly, and the joy they shared in that moment was infectious. The rain started to come down a little harder so we moved everyone inside to the beautifully lit sunroom for bridal party and family photos. The natural light pouring in through the large windows made for stunning portraits as we captured the love and laughter shared among family and friends.

Their ceremony took place under the tent, providing an intimate and cozy setting as the rain pattered softly on the canopy above. The colorful palette of the wedding, featuring vibrant spring blooms in shades of yellows, reds, pinks, and oranges, created a cheerful contrast to the gray skies. Bridesmaids in dusty blue dresses and groomsmen in matching black suits added a touch of sophistication to the vivid scene. As the ceremony concluded, guests made their way out of the tent and into the estate for cocktail hour. The patio and the interior of the estate buzzed with conversation and laughter as the rain started to lighten up at this point people were able to move to the outdoor patio for cocktails and hors-d’oeuvres

The Philander Chase Knox Estate, with its historic charm and beautiful grounds, was the perfect venue for Kevin and Emily’s wedding. The rain added a touch of romance to the day, and the couple’s ability to go with the flow made for a relaxed and joyful celebration. Capturing these special moments was an honor, and we’re thrilled with how the photos turned out. Kevin and Emily’s love story is one for the ages, and their wedding day was a true testament to their love and resilience. Congratulations to the happy couple!
