Poole Forge Wedding Photography
When a dear childhood friend calls and asks you if you?d come to Pennsylvania to photograph her wedding - you jump at the chance to say yes! With a covered bridge, perfect picnicking lawns and gardens and an awesome 1700?s stone mansion, Poole Forge was a beautiful venue for a wedding. It was a DIY wedding - and when I arrived the groom was busy making bouquets. He smiled and laughed, explaining that you can learn a lot from YouTube. They married themselves in a self-uniting ceremony. What?s that? Self-uniting is when a couple are married without the presence of a third-party. Most states don?t acknowledge self-uniting marriage, but Pennsylvania (Wisconsin, Colorado and DC too) does. How do you do it? You exchange rings and vows before family and friends in a secular ceremony. How?s that for DIY???
