It’s incredible to see two people who are strong on their own, but who become unstoppable once they’re together. Their resilience through life’s unexpected twists and turns has brought them closer and solidified their bond. We were truly honored to photograph Lauren and Will’s wedding day surrounded by their amazing friends and family. To celebrate their love for one another, the couple chose the breathtaking HollyHedge Estate in New Hope, PA, for their wedding venue.

The HollyHedge Estate is located within New Hope, in the historic Bucks County region of Pennsylvania. With quite a long history, dating back to the early 1780’s, many of the buildings on the property are from the original construction. The use of the property varied as the decades passed. From a farmstead and a private estate, to even a performing arts school before it was turned back into a country estate. Since 1994, the New Hope property has been owned and operated by the Luccaro Family. Utilizing traditional masonry techniques, they have restored many features of the buildings while embracing its rustic charm and history. HollyHedge Estate demonstrates outstanding stewardship and respect for the property and land on which it is situated. If you’re looking for an environmentally-friendly venue for your wedding, look no further. The Luccaro Family and their team is committed to farm-to-table and local food use for all of their events. Most of the food is grown on the property with the rest supplied by local farms. And nothing goes to waste here! Leftover cooking oil becomes bio-diesel, certain foods become compost for the farms and the rest goes to a local hog farmer to feed the livestock. It’s impossible not to feel the good karma buzzing around this beautiful venue!
