Booking House Manheim Wedding Philadelphia Wedding Photographer

In early 2016, I was introduced to Rachael and Luke through my friends and super amazingly talented photographers on the East coast,  Grace and Matt from Right Start Photography. Rachael is good friends with Grace, so she wanted Grace to be a guest at the wedding. Grace offered to help them find the photographer for the wedding. So shortly after a few Facebook messages and text messages back and forth between me and Grace, I found myself being introduced to Rachael and then later to Luke.  Next thing I knew, I was booking a flight to Pennsylvania for Rachael and Luke’s Booking House Manheim Wedding right outside of the Philadelphia.

I was honored and humbled to have been recommended for such an important milestone in her friends life. At the same time, I was scared out of my brains.  As it turned out, Rachael is also a photographer. Additionally, I found out on the day of the wedding, a number of people in Rachael’s inner circle who were at the wedding were photographers also.  At least I know I could borrow a camera if mine broke.

Rachael and Luke’s love story is an interesting one. It actually starts with Rachael’s father. Luke met Rachael’s father while they were both serving in the military. Luke and Rachael’s father soon became friends and Luke eventually started visiting their home. That’s when he first met Rachael.  At first he thought nothing of it. Rachael even hit on Luke initially but he refused.  However, the more he came around, the more he started crushing on Rachael. After a short time, Luke asked Rachael’s father for permission date his daughter. They dated for a few years. Most of it long distances as Luke was away serving his tours of duty. Finally he proposed and they are now married. Im grateful to have met Rachael and Luke and their families and to have had the opportunity of document their wedding.

The Booking House Manheim Wedding Venue

Equally as cool as the Rachael and Luke’s love story, is the story of their wedding venue. Lancaster, PA, an area rich to tobacco and cigar making, the old General Cigar Company Warehouse was built in 1884 and produced cigars for more than 50 years. The old General Cigar Co. Warehouse was built back in 1884 and produced cigars for more than 50 years. Through the years, the building changed hands and uses. The most recent owners actually bought the building because they were looking for some warehouse space to store construction equipment. After showing the building to a number of people and friends, there was an overwhelming consensus that the building would be a great place to hose an event such as weddings and other galas. The beauty in this old brick structure with its thick chestnut beams and wood floors had a very rustic wedding look that has become increasingly popular.

Special thanks to Grace and Matt from Right Start Photography for taking care of me during my time in Pennsylvania. An extra thank you to Matt who agreed to share his talents with me and partnered up with my teammate to help me shot the wedding. Lastly, thank you to Alexis from Alexis Brooke Photography for letting me borrow the extra light stands while I was there!
