“Certain as the sun rising in the east. Tale as old as time; Song as old as rhyme. Beauty and the Beast…”
When Kassandra contacted me regarding photographing their June wedding next year, we immediately bonded over our shared love of all things Disney! After getting to know them a little more, I knew we’d be a great match.
Zach and Kassandra are one of the cutest, sweetest couples ever! They just recently celebrated their 5 year dating anniversary, and Kassandra had this sweet Instagram message for the love of her life, “I know that many people don’t believe in fate or soul mates, and instead believe that we kind of end up with who we end up with completely at random. But I’m a romantic at heart, and I definitely feel like the universe worked hard to make sure we would end up together. But no matter what forces brought us together, starting and staying in a relationship is a choice. And I’m so glad that you chose me and I chose you.”
As a couple, Zach and Kassandra are a ton of fun to be around! They enjoy exploring new places and trying new things. Like myself, Kassandra is a huge bookworm, and we both LOVE Beauty and the Beast. In fact, their wedding hashtag is #BeautyandtheReese. How cool (and creative) is that?!
Kassandra and Zach chose to visit me in my hometown of State College for their engagement session, so we were able to visit some of my favorite local spots. Millbrook Marsh provides a quiet boardwalk along a babbling stream. And no visit to the home of PSU is complete without a visit to the Nittany Lion Shrine and the beautiful Nittany Lion Inn, so we headed there before ending up at the gorgeous Arboretum.
Flowers, fountains, and beautiful walkways made for a gorgeous location to showcase the love these two have for each other. We are so excited for their wedding next year, and we know it is going to be an absolutely “magical” night!
