James + Olivia Feature Film | Private Estate Tyrone, PA
James and Olivia's wedding day took place on James' parents' property. The Russell Ranch was perfect for this wedding. Olivia recalled days when she first started dating James and the time they would spend time there, hanging out or riding four wheelers in the fields.
Although they didn't start dating until Olivia was a sophomore at Penn State, James and Olivia met in their high school art class. She may have only been a freshman, but Olivia still remembers the first time she met James She shared with me how cool of an upperclassman he was. "James was good at essentially every sport, funny, unpredictable, kind to everyone and REALLY good at painting his cast."
While on a business trip in California, James and Olivia spent a day exploring wine country. After a day full of wine tastings, James and Olivia returned to their rental villa. It was there that James told Olivia that he wanted her to be a part of his life forever. This past September, at a place they both love so much and with all of their loved ones, James and Olivia made it official!
With James' handy work and Olivia's eye, their vision for a whimsical, bohemian-style wedding day was perfectly executed. Emily, from Pocketful Of Posies, draped the hexagonal archway and the carpeted-aisle with pampas, eucalyptus greens, and peachy pink florals.
The reception tent featured dark wooden tables, brown-bottle centerpieces. and lined with off-white runners and pine greenery, The tables were pulled together with gold silverware, deep-purple linens beneath clear-glass plates. and topped with place cards made of terra cotta clay. A collection of oriental rugs made for the perfect aisle and dance floor. AND, AND, AND!! If you're interested in any of their wedding day essentials, Jame and Olivia started a rental company!

Thank you to James and Olivia for giving us the opportunity to share this special day with you and your loved ones. The love and friendship you share is beyond words. The excitement Olivia showed on the morning of this day brought me to tears, and after seeing James' huge heart (and all his small acts of kindness), I can see why Olivia was so joyful. You two take care of each other so beautifully.
Thank you to this amazing team of wedding vendors who made our job so much more enjoyable, and kept the day running smoothly! We really appreciate you all!
