Marianne + Matthew | Northampton Country Club Wedding | Allentown Wedding Photographers


Marianne and Matt’s wedding day was an absolute dream!  The October weather held out and the subtle hints of orange and yellows were beginning to pop on the trees at their venue.  The sun soaked evening made for some dreamy, glow-filled portraits!

Getting Ready

Marianne began the day at her parents’ home getting ready with her bridesmaids while Matt and the guys started the morning at Northampton Country Club.  Some of my favorite moments of a wedding day begin during this time.  Her gorgeous wedding gown was shipped from Spain and the beautiful cathedral-length gown was handmade just for this day.  There were also so many special details that Marianne incorporated such as her grandmother’s wedding gown that was used to wrap her bridal bouquet.

The Ceremony

Matt and Marianne were married in a beautiful, intimate ceremony at their church, Saints Peter & Paul Byzantine Catholic Church in Bethlehem.  Due to COVID restrictions for indoor gatherings, only a handful of their friends and family were able to attend; however, they were able to stream their ceremony for friends and family who viewed from home.

One of my favorite things about Matt and Marianne is that they didn’t allow these restrictions to put a damper on their day.  They were focused on the true meaning of the day–becoming husband and wife!


Following their wedding ceremony, we made the short trip to Northampton Country Club for formal portraits of them with their bridal party.  After we photographed them with their best friends, we concluded our portrait time with some romantic, glowy portraits of just the newlyweds!

A Private Party

Marianne and Matt decided to keep the moments of their wedding dinner private to share between themselves and their closest friends and family.  Shortly after they were introduced, I left them to celebrate the night away as husband and wife!

Matt and Marianne, congratulations!  It was such a pleasure to document these special moments of your beautiful wedding day.


A heartfelt thank you to the vendors for their hard work and commitment to making Matt and Marianne’s Northampton Country Club wedding so beautiful!  (And a special thanks to my associate photographer, Bianca, for being my right hand gal for the day!)
