Hi friends, it’s Wedding Wednesday (I think that’s a thing?!) and we’re finally sharing one of our favorite weddings of the year with you, Amanda and Joe’s Chatfield Hollow Bed and Breakfast wedding! We first found out about this venue from Jess & Tim last year and ever since then it has been one of our favorite places to visit. Ken (the owner) and Tima (the innkeeper) are two of the nicest men you’ll ever meet and every time we’re there we have so much fun chatting with them and learning about the farm. I feel like every time we go there we see and learn new things!
Anywayyyys, Amanda and Joe are the sweetest people ever – I just can’t get over how nice they are. They met on Amanda’s front porch at a Christmas party and spent two hours talking outside that night; afterwards all of their friends said they knew sparks were flying! A couple of months later they started chatting via Facebook messenger and shortly after started dating – and then they did long distance for a year and a half! Joe is stationed in the military in NC and Amanda was living in CT but has since moved there so they could be together.
We were so excited when they got in touch with us about photographing their wedding because we love Chatfield Hollow Bed and Breakfast; it’s in the middle of Killingworth in a location that I drive by a few times a week and yet when you’re there it kind of feels like it’s in it’s own little world and it’s far enough off the main road that you can’t hear anything but nature – it’s so romantic and magical (which sounds so lame but it’s the truth!) and at night you can hear crickets and see fireflies and it’s just the best place ever. Not to mention there are peacocks and swans and other gorgeous birds all over the property.
Amanda & Joe, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your day. We loved it and are so excited for you both!
xo, Erin and Peter
