Christine & Alex | Longwood Gardens

Christine and Alex joined us for an intimate engagement session at Longwood Gardens and Ridley Creek State Park.

There’s not too many things better than spending time snuggling in gorgeous gardens and romantic estates.

Christine and Alex were a dream to work with. We got to adore them for TWO engagement shoots and their beautiful wedding at Folino Estate Winery later that early Fall. Honestly, we could’ve happily had a few more sessions with these two. Their love was sweet, kind, adoring, and fun.

We set out for Longwood Gardens to celebrate these two on a gorgeous May day. Longwood is: “an American botanical garden. It consists of over 1,077 acres of gardens, woodlands, and meadows in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, United States in the Brandywine Creek Valley.” We are so lucky to live just a short drive away.

We originally set out for Longwood on a day they had late hours. Sadly, rain had us reschedule. We quickly realized that this new rescheduled date was closing quickly upon our arrival. We jetted around the beautiful spaces for as long as possible. I couldn’t believe how much magic we made in a short half an hour. Christine and Alex’s “roll with it” personalities were so beyond lovely, we knew they were meant to be in our Iris and Echo family.

We left Longwood and headed to Ridley Creek State Park shortly after. Whats better than following enchanted gardens up with an enchanted old mansion? Hunting Hill is one of our favorite places close to our homes so it only felt right to bring them there. It matched their sweet, snuggling, and loving nature.

Stay tuned for their beautiful wedding at Folino Estate Winery.
