I had the joy of meeting this lovely couple, Alexandra and Patrick for their Wilbur Mansion engagement session! I had the greatest time getting to know this beautiful couple, while also taking in the beauty of this brand new Bethlehem, PA wedding venue, Wilbur Mansion. Alexandra and Patrick will be starting the next chapter of their lives together next year at this same location. I am thrilled we were able to host their engagement portraits at the same location where they will be married.
Wilbur Mansion Engagement Session
Being a brand new venue, it is still undergoing the final touches before opening. Even though the building is not yet open, we had a great time touring the venue and seeing how it is coming together. From what I can tell, it is going to be absolutely gorgeous! I loved the room off the balcony area with windows and glass doors wrapping around the perimeter letting in beautiful natural light. Walking through those glass doors takes you onto the modernized porch with sleek black hand rails and clean lines, which gives way to an open balcony area featuring classic architecture and stunning views of the Lehigh River and Steel Stacks. It was the perfect combination of classic and modern.
Both Alexandra and Patrick looked amazing! I loved Alexandra’s white, long sleeved dress and Patrick’s gray suit. Towards the end of their session, their adorable dog joined in a few photos outside. Prior to that, the couple shared a toast of champagne from their favorite bottle they brought along to celebrate. It was the perfect addition to their portraits as these two have a lot to celebrate! I can’t wait to see them again at this very location for their wedding day. I can already envision their magical wedding day at this stunning new PA wedding venue!
