Jillian and Jared’s Beautiful Brewerie Wedding in Erie PA

Even before their Brewerie wedding day, Jillian Peck and Jared Dalrymple had already begun to create a lasting relationship together. Not only had they fallen in love with each other, but they had also come together as a family of three. And who is this third member of their family? Braelynn, Jillian’s daughter, had given them her blessing to get married.

I first met Jillian, Jared, and Braelynn last summer to photograph their engagement. The results of that first session showed a couple that loved each other and Braelynn so much. The photos were full of all the feels!

I was looking forward to photographing their wedding at the Brewerie at Union Station, and their day in downtown Erie surpassed my expectations.

How I Met Your Mother

The bride and groom met through social media in 2014. Early in their relationship, Jillian and Jared bonded over TV shows. The show, How I Met Your Mother, holds a special place in their hearts. This was the first show that they watched together, and now they share a LOT of inside jokes because of it. Barney Stinson himself might have even played a role in the couple’s groomsmen proposals. Challenge accepted.

As Jillian and Jared became closer, a special bond also developed between Jared and Braelynn. This young lady played an important role in bringing the couple even closer together.

Which brings me to their wedding day!

A Unique Union

The ceremony was beautiful and love was definitely in the air. The outdoor Erie, PA wedding was held at Griswold Plaza near the historic Union Station. The bridal party included both family and friends of the bride and groom.

During their wedding ceremony, Jillian and Jared held a special and unique unity ceremony. Rather than lighting a candle together or pouring sand into a shared glass, Jillian and Jared chose to symbolize the blending of their lives by blending two varieties of wine that they had specially chosen for this occasion. This was a first for me, and I loved the idea of mixing two individual wines to create a new flavor for the couple to share together.
