Every Kiss Begins with Kmart

Lydia and Josh’s future as life partners got a trial run as co-workers in the aisles of Kmart. Eventually their shifts just weren’t enough time together anymore. So, Josh worked up the courage to ask Lydia out for lunch at Moe’s.

Their collective nerves meant that very little eating ended up happening, but their natural chemistry and hours of good conversation made future dates the clear next step. They quickly became inseparable, offering comfort and patience for each other at every step of their relationship.

Josh’s big proposal was an eye-opening moment for Lydia — literally! He insisted that his bride-to-be close her eyes so he could surprise her. Lydia’s answer was an easy yes, and they’ve been counting down the days to their September wedding ever since.

A Rustic Port Farms Wedding

When the big day finally arrived, we met Josh and Lydia at the gorgeous venue: Port Farms. This gorgeous land has been passed down through the Port family for generations, and was the perfect place to bring a new family together!

As the farm has grown, a stunning wedding venue has been built amongst the classic Pennsylvania nature. Between the happy couple, the rustic design, and the streaming natural lighting, capturing unforgettable shots was no challenge at all! We also had the opportunity to capture couple portraits in the farm’s blooming sunflower fields. Just as these flowers always point to the sun, we can tell that Josh and Lydia are pointing towards happily ever after.
