Belle Voir Manor Wedding | Laura & Bill

Laura & Bill’s wedding at Belle Voir Manor was sophisticated and fun!

This family is so dear to me and close to my heart. Words cannot express how honored I felt to have been such a special part of their lives in my role as their wedding photographer!

Laura and Bill’s romance began when they met at the gym! Before Bill asked Laura out, he would schedule his workout around the time that he suspected Laura would be at the gym. One fateful day he waited for over 4 hours in order to see Laura! He eventually approached Laura while she was mid-workout to strike up a conversation and ask her out. Their first date happened about a month after their first meeting when the couple went to dinner at Iron Hill in West Chester.

Bill eventually popped the question in January of 2020. That evening the couple went out to dinner at their favorite restaurant in West Chester for date night. As the couple walked back from dinner, they rounded the corner to their home when Laura heard “I can’t help falling in love with you” by Elvis Presley. The song was playing on loudspeakers which seemed to be coming from their townhouse! The surprises continued to unfold as they approached their front door!

Outside their front door, a table was set up with roses, candles, and the ring which was propped up on a candle holder. Bill got down on one knee and proposed right there! Afterward, their dog Leo came running down the stairs and met the future bride and groom outside with a sign that read “Mom and Dad are getting married!” Their Family and friends were waiting inside their home to surprise them and the couple celebrated their newfound engagement for the entire weekend!

Laura and Bill’s wedding day at Belle Voir Manor was so upbeat and so much FUN! They treated their guests to live music from a 12 piece band. It was definitely a dance until your feet hurt kind of night with their guests on the dance floor for the majority of their reception! From engagement to wedding day, Laura and Bill’s friends and family celebrated with them each step of the way.
