Engagement Session at The Willows in Villanova | Sarah + Ricky

In the heart of Philadelphia’s Main Line in Villanova, Pennsylvania, I captured Sarah and Ricky’s Engagement Session at The Willows. Their romantic session felt straight out of a fairytale! The Willows, an elegant wedding venue and scenic park, features a blend of natural beauty and classic, timeless style.

The Willows has an European-style mansion that graces the landscape of Willows Park Preserve, a 49-acre public park in Villanova. Built in 1910, this historic mansion is a beautiful example of Spanish Revival style architecture. This gorgeous estate overlooks a breathtaking panorama of hills, trails, trees, and serene ponds. The Willows features a remarkable collection of mature willows, oaks, maples, and sycamores that create a lush, diverse landscape. The setting can only be described as enchanting! It was a perfect location to capture Sarah and Ricky’s romantic engagement session.

Romantic Engagement Session at The Willows

Sarah was already familiar with this park as she frequented it as a child. They chose to share a romantic picnic near the pond where the mansion could be seen off in the distance. Sitting on a blanket, they savored a glass of wine while enjoying the scenic beauty of the park and toasting to their future ahead. 

Sarah, adorned in a timeless white dress and a tan wide-brimmed hat, perfectly complemented the park’s neutral color palette and timeless elegance. Ricky also wore a classic, neutral outfit sporting a light blue dress shirt and khaki dress pants.

 Sarah and Ricky’s romantic engagement session at The Willows was a beautiful celebration of their love, classic style, and the breathtaking natural beauty of the scenic park. This beautiful couple will tie the knot next year at The Hamilton Manor. With the magic of their engagement at The Willows as a prelude, their wedding day is sure to be a day to remember!
