Merlin and Susan: Juniata Wedding

Jun 18, 2015

Merlin and Susan really are one of the sweetest couples I’ve met. Quiet and unassuming, kind and good. Merlin is a true gentleman and always looking out for the well-being of others. I have no doubt that he will take the best care of Susan. And she has this effortless grace and beauty that manifested itself in all the little details of the day. She just as beautiful inside as she is gorgeous on the outside. She always dreamed of getting married at her home, and honestly- it was the most perfect venue for their day. Everyone felt like family, and their guests were all so happy to be a part of such a wonderful celebration.
