Real Weddings: A University of Valley Forge Winter Wedding

Anna and Ethan met while having coffee at the student success center at the University of Valley Forge in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, so it was only natural (and extra special) to have their wedding there.  They chose the little Mason Chapel on campus for their ceremony because they loved the history of the building, the intimate size, and the beautiful stained glass windows. 

The photographer, Kate Serbin, stated that a snow and ice storm kept them from driving into downtown Phoenixville as planned for wedding photos, but the university had compassion on them and let them use the lovely library for their photos. The library was extra special to the bride who had majored in history and always loved the building. As you can see, the photos looked amazing-who knew that books could provide such a stunning and unique backdrop?
