Bell Gate Farm Wedding | Ashley + Jarret | Lehigh Valley Wedding Photographers


Ashley and Jarret’s Bell Gate Farm wedding was such a long awaited celebration! Their original plans for a big wedding celebration at Bell Gate Farm were thwarted by COVID. Because they still wanted to keep their original wedding date, they were legally married last September; and a few weeks ago, they were able to have the wedding of their dreams with all of their friends and family!

Getting Ready

Ashley and Jarret both got ready with their closest friends and family on site at Bell Gate Farm. Their suites are perfect for capturing those pre-ceremony moments! We had plenty of space and lots windows for natural light.

First Look + Portraits

The weather surprised us with rain showers that began during their First Look and continued throughout their bride and groom portraits. Ashley and Jarret were such great sports about it! With the help of my favorite clear bubble umbrellas, we were able to continue portraits of the two of them outside and even found little nooks to hide in when the rain really picked up.

With the rain continuing, we were able to capture bridal party portraits underneath the overhang outside of Bell Gate Farm’s main barn. It’s so great when a venue has a covered option for outdoor portraits in case of inclement weather!

As we were concluding the formal portraits, the sun began to peek out just in time for Ashley and Jarret’s ceremony!


The staff at Bell Gate Farm worked quickly to dry off the chairs just in time for Ashley and Jarret’s walk down the aisle. The outdoor ceremony site is overlooking the pond and nestled in the beautiful surroundings of nature. Luckily, their ceremony was short and sweet because shortly after it was concluded, it began to rain again!


The celebration took place inside the main barn at Bell Gate Farm and was such a fun party! After dinner, the rain let up, allowing us to sneak out for one last round of portraits. Luckily, this time it didn’t rain!

Ashley and Jarret, thank you for the privilege of working with you! I hope you enjoy a peek at some of my favorite images from you Bell Gate Farm wedding.

A special thank you to the staff at Bell Gate and to my second shooter, Emily, for your hard work and support throughout the day!
