Edgeboro Moravian Church & Hotel Bethlehem Wedding | Rebecca & Charlie

About The Day

Rebecca and Charlie’s winter wedding showcases their intimate and romantic wedding day. Their day was full of sentimental details that truly matter. The couple infused their personalities into their wedding for a personal and romantic approach. What an honor to be chosen to capture this Bethlehem, Pennsylvania wedding by their side! 

This Bethlehem bride is incredibly talented. For her day, she handcrafted many wedding day details.

From the bride

“My dad designed my engagement ring. This ring was custom made for my mom. After my mom passed, it was kept at the bank. And in December 2018, my dad gifted the ring to Charlie for our engagement.”

The details

The bride incorporated her classic, vintage, and religious aesthetic throughout her day. The Savannah bridal gown by Wtoo by Watters from Lila’s Bridal Boutique showcases Rebecca’s personality. This elegant, effortless, and sweet, off-the-shoulder neckline and fit-and-flare silhouette is classic and elegant. Rebecca paired this chic gown with the handcrafted cathedral veil. The petit bridal bouquet handcrafted by the family, and heirloom fur-cape made for an elegant bridal aesthetic. The textures of the gown compliment the baby’s breath and rose bouquet. As you see in her fine art bridal portraits, this look fits her intimate Bethlehem wedding day so perfectly. Just a few of my favorite details from Rebecca’s day included the antique ring box, heirloom engagement ring, her Bible, and their wedding bands.

The ceremony

Their ceremony was hosted at Edgeboro Moravian ChurchThe bride utilized her creative strengths, and stayed very strict to her color palette to keep the wedding day consistent. The bride utilized off-white, black, gold, and red, inspired by the Moravian ceremony venue, and carried these colors brilliantly throughout the spaces. The aisle was adorned in fresh florals included white roses, baby’s breath, eucalyptus and red ribbon.  Talented artist, Tina Geisler invited guests in with their harmonious organ services. 

The portraits

We visited several sites in downtown Bethlehem. After their session at Hotel Bethlehem, the bride & groom’s cocktail hour kicked off. Their reception opened with the romantic first dance, emotive parent dances, compassionate toasts, and prayer led by the groom, captured by fine art New Jersey photographer, Michelle Behre at the Green Pond Country Club.

Congratulations, Rebecca and Charles!
