A Gorgeous Wedding at White Chimneys in Lancaster County

Sharing is caring!

From the photographer (Deibert Photography):

This wedding from White Chimneys is a doozy for many, many reasons. 

First, let’s address the fact that we got to photograph a wedding at the very place where we were married – so you can imagine all of the feels on that end. 

Second, Melinda and Mike were so giddy, loving and amazing to work with!

And last, the amount of time we had to capture portraits was a blessing. 

Much like our own wedding day, this one started out rainy. 

But by the time we made our way to the venue from downtown Lancaster, the rain had cleared.

Melinda and Mike could not wait to see each other, which made the first look absolutely perfect.

We made our way to all the different spots the venue has to offer. As we got closer to ceremony time, the sun peeked its head out to give us a beautiful backdrop under the European columns.

The short, but very sweet ceremony, was very personal to Melinda and Mike.

After the ceremony, the couple gathered with all their friends and family for cocktails and conversation (One of the main benefits of doing a first look).

A lovely folk duo serenaded the couple for their first dance “Harvest Moon” as all their guests watched them in the lovely restored tobacco barn. 

The rest of the evening was casual and enjoyable, with some Harvey’s BBQ making an appearance. 

Melinda and Mike’s guests hit the dance floor and danced to some self-selected beats.

Eventually we made our way out towards the pasture for a stunning night portrait under the stars.
