On Thursday we were at Buhl Mansion in Sharon Pennsylvania. The event was a wedding ceremony and wedding reception for Anna and Jeffrey. Anna and Jeffrey were married in the garden located behind Buhl Mansion. Guests began arriving at Buhl Mansion at 4:30 pm for a 5:00 pm wedding ceremony. The ceremony was presided over by Pastor Jon Pickens and lasted approximately 25 minutes.
After the ceremony, guests transitioned to the tent where they enjoyed cocktails and appetizers as the bridal party posed for photographs with Nicki of Nicki Hufford Photography and video with Kevin of Izaiah’s Wings Video Productions.
At 6:30 pm we formally introduced the bridal party and then Anna and Jeffrey shared in their first dance together as husband and wife to the song Dancing In The Minefields by Andrew Peterson. Toasts were then offered by the father of the groom, the best man and maid of honor prior to dinner.
After dinner, Anna shared in a special dance with her father and then her mother. Then Jeffrey danced with his mother prior to opening up the dance floor.
