This stunning Princeton wedding with romantic details was photographed on Saturday, August 3, 2019 by Hannah Bjorndal. Hannah is an east coast-based photographer available for weddings in Washington, D.C., nationally & internationally.
From the minute they inquired about me shooting their wedding, I was so thrilled that Kelsea & Chuck to have the opportunity to work with this wonderful couple. Evan played on the soccer team with Chuck at Grove City, and then we happened to sit next to them at a wedding last fall. It was such a treat meeting both of them, and also a crazy coincidence when we realized we had been at the same wedding at the very same venue one year beforehand!
Kelsea & Chuck are absolutely lovely people on the inside & out. I was met with so much kindness and gratefulness at the beginning of the day, and their families & wedding party were warm and welcoming to us! It was also really fun to see another of Evan’s soccer friends, Evan Moore, who is also a wedding photographer! We so enjoyed the company of everyone involved in the wedding day!
Before this wedding, I had never been to Princeton’s campus, and I had no idea what to expect other than the little photo research I did in advance. It’s not surprise that the campus is absolutely gorgeous, especially in the summer, and there were almost too many gorgeous photo locations to choose from! Thankfully, Kelsea & Chuck also did extensive research and selected their favorite spots before the big day, so I had a framework to work within!
It was really hard to narrow down my favorite photos from this day! Some of my favorite details included Kelsea’s beautiful & feminine heels, the stunning Princeton chapel, portraits in the library, the peaceful and romantic reception setting and seeing the way Kelsea & Chuck look at each other throughout the day! I’m so excited to share!
