Jessica & Vincent – Emerald Valley Farm...

Jessica and Vince first met in high school through mutual friends; they attended prom together but went their separate ways for college. Ten years later they were reunited by chance at C.J. Hummels in Lenhartsville. It took many nights of line dancing (at C.J. Hummels) and playing cards on weekends with friends and family until they finally went on their first official date to a Brad Paisley concert at the Allentown Fair. Almost 5 years later Vince got down on one knee and proposed, fittingly, at a Brad Paisley concert during the song “She’s Everything.” It truly is a love that was “16 years in the making.” Their special day began as the...

Katherine and Gabrie...

Katherine and I were emailing back and forth for a little over a month (maybe more) trying to lock down a date to have their engagement shoot.  Each date we set it was either snowing or had just snowed.  We were hoping the snow was going to melt when we first started talking about the shoot...

Chistian & Michael – Woodloch Pines Res...

A week’s worth of cloudy skies and rain finally broke the morning of Christian’s and Michael’s wedding and they couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous and blessed day. Binding their lives to one another in the scenic setting of Woodloch Pines Resort, the bright sky and autumnal colors created a lush background for this intimate affair. Joyful tears and laughter were all around as they recited their handwritten vows for each other and their Celebrant, Alisa Tongg, told their love story. The perfect ceremony came to a close as the sun magically set behind the new Mr. and Mrs. Mercado-Stanton. Once the celebrations had moved inside, the...

Jodee and Brandon We...

A few weeks ago, we had the rare honor to be the photographer of a winter wedding.  I was very unsure how it would turn out due to the uncertainties of the weather.  I was certainly hoping for snow since the outdoor photos would look quite dull without the pretty colors of spring, summer and...

Angie & Darren – ArtsQuest SteelStacks ...

Angie and Darren met during one of Darren’s pool championships. As they were dating, he just so happened to go on winning World Championships! Their wedding was equally world class, spanning from the Sands Casino in Bethlehem to the University Parich of Holy Ghost, and finally to ArtsQuest Steelstacks. Throughout the day the energy built much like in this short film recapping the highlights. I wish Angie and Darren a great future as they build their family and friendships.

Caitlin & Ian – Mountain Springs Lake &...

Caitlin & Ian’s wedding at Mountain Springs Lake Resort in Reeder’s, PA was the first time that I had worked this venue. Boy was I in for a surprise with what a great thing they have going on up here. So many venues in the Pocono’s have beautiful scenery with somewhat dated reception halls, but certainly not here. This is one of the best reception halls in the Lehigh Valley/Pocono Area. The families were so diverse and interesting as well, and with Ian’s military background, Caitlin’s amazing dress, and the firecracker send off rounding off the many stories this is one of my favorite films to...

Rebecca & Hunter – Penn’s Peak We...

Rebecca and Hunters’s wedding at Penn’s Peak was my first time to film this exciting venue. The mountain view ceremony was made even more stunning by the incredible scene the couple put together for the reception setup and lighting. Please enjoy these highlights of their beautiful wedding....

Lauren and Gordon we...

Our last wedding of the year, turned out to be one of the most fun weddings of the season.  Lauren and Gordon tied the knot last month at the Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Whitehall.  Though before they did, Lauren and the girls went to Studio 950 for their hair and back to her parents...

Alissa and Doug at S...

After getting to know them, I am so excited already to photograph Alissa and Doug’s wedding day next fall at Shawnee Inn. But for now, I was more than happy to capture the engagement celebration between these two. This would be the first time I’ve been to the Shawnee Inn and I...

Jessica and Vince We...

Fun! That’s the first word that comes to mind when we think back on Jessica and Vince’s wedding. Though it wasn’t just fun, it was a romantic and beautiful celebration.  With such a great group of family and friends, we knew from the start, it was going to be a great day....

Casie and Brandon En...

Casie and I met to check out the scenery a few days prior to her engagement shoot and we saw the beautiful fall leaves everywhere you looked. Though between then and the actual day we met up for the photos, there was a storm that took away quite a bit of our leaves and scenery.  We...

Allison and Justin E...

Next summer I have the pleasure of being the photographer for Allison and Justin for their wedding at Bella Vista Golf Club.  I’m really excited to work with Allison’s family once again.  A few years ago, I was the photographer for her brother and wife at Bear Creek and they were...

Lauren and DavidR...

Lauren and David are one of those couples who, as soon as you meet them, you know you’re going to have a great time. Our day started bright and early with Lauren and her bridesmaids getting ready at Meera Salon and Day Spa in Whitehall.  Once everyone was done, we all headed back to...

Emily and George Wed...

I was honored when Emily and George asked me to photograph their wedding, a few weeks ago, in the mountains of Virginia.  Emily is from the lehigh valley area and George (Drew) from Georgia.  So they thought it would be best to have a wedding somewhere in the middle so it would be easier for...

Brittany and David a...

Brittany and David are such a cute couple.  I was hired last fall to be their photographer for both their engagement shoot and wedding.  Now, I’m a huge Eagles fan, but they are such a cute couple that you can forgive them for being Steelers fans! Actually since their wedding, the...

Tracy & Chad – Woodstone Wedding Highli...

Tracy and Chad’s wedding day was as fun as it was picture perfect. Chad got a beer keg from Tracy as his wedding gift, how cool is that? Perhaps not as cool as the beautiful earrings he got for her, but I may be a little biased! The Woodstone Country Club was firing on all cylinders once again providing a stunning backdrop to a heartfelt wedding. The outdoor ceremony site at Woodstone is just perfect, and today would prove to be one of the best days I’ve seen there. The reception was rocking all night long, but fortunately we were able to steal the happy new couple away for a few minutes to enjoy the golden sunset that fell over...

Kristen & Dennis – Bear Creek Mountain ...

Kristen & Dennis’s wedding had it all, from a beautiful ceremony, creative session with their dog, and even an accordion player! But what I will remember most is how much their families and friend were so integral to the feeling of shared joy that the day radiated. Bear Creek is also never to disappoint as one of the ultimate wedding destinations in the valley, from the many indoor and outdoor touches that separate their weddings from others. The crowd was awesome as we showed this Same Day Edit at the end of the reception and I cannot thank the new couple enough for giving us the opportunity to be a small part of their big...

I’ve been waiting for this wedding for quite some time.  I haven’t photographed at the Glasbern Inn before, and when I met Amber and her mother for their walk-through a few weeks prior to their wedding I was really excited for the opportunity to do so. Their whole day took place...

Brittany & David – Bear Creek Mountain ...

Brittany and David are such great people you can almost forgive them for being Steelers fans! When we were discussing their plans for their Same Day Edit at Bear Creek Mountain Resort, I could just tell that they were the kind of couple that would be a blast on their wedding day and they did not disappoint! A perfect early fall day lent itself to a touching first look by the pond and lead right into a blue sky accented ceremony at the Woodland site. Every once in a while, like today, I get jealous of missing filming the reception when I hear them having a blast and dancing hard all night long and truly enjoying a photo...

Jennifer & Michael – Stroudsmour Countr...

  Jennifer and Michael got married at the serene Woodridge forest at Stroudsmoor Country Inn in Stroudsburg, PA. We have filmed at Stroudmoor before but not at this wooded ceremony site before. It was such a stunning and peaceful place to exchange vows. Despite a persistent and ongoing drizzle though out the day, it was hard to tell under the canopy of the trees.

Kristen & Joe – Stroudsmoor Country Inn...

Kristen and Joe had a great wedding this summer up at the Stroudsmoor Country Inn at their Ridgecrest facility. If you have never been to a wedding there the view from the ceremony is simply stunning. We try and portray the awe in their film but it is really something you have to see to believe. Complimenting the picturesque ceremony was some beautiful live acoustic singing by Jay Lapp. I was so mesmerized by his rendition of Fields of Gold, even while I was running around like a crazy man trying to get the ceremony set up for filming, that I asked him to record a special version to be used in their wedding film. Jay did not even bat an eye...

Geniene and Andrew S...

I had the pleasure to photograph Andrew and Geniene’s wedding last month.  I have known them for a number of years and I was honored that they asked me to be their photographer.  The day got started at Hotel Bethlehem, where Geniene was getting ready with her close friends.  At the same...

A month ago, Bar None was hired to photograph and film Lauren and Matthew’s wedding at the Stroudsmoor Country Inn in Stroudsburg, PA. Their Ceremony was full of energy and that flowed over to the entire wedding! After their ceremony we drove to the Rose Garden in Allentown, PA for...

Kristen & Ryan – Bear Creek Mountain Re...

Kristen & Ryan invited us to film their wedding at Bear Creek Mountain Resort. Though we have worked there many times this wedding had a character all of its own! I think I had just as much fun editing this one as I did filming it. Such great images and emotions made the story literally tell...

Its amazing that my job is to capture special events of a couples life.  A few weeks ago, I was asked to capture a very special event in one of my clients lives.  In the past, I have done their engagement shoot, wedding photography and now they are going to have a baby!!  Yay!!  Thats so...

Lauren & Matthew – Stroudsmoor Terravie...

Lauren and Matthew invited Bar None Weddings to film and photograph their wedding at the Stroudsmoor Country Inn in Stroudsburg, PA. Their Ceremony was full of energy and that flowed over to the entire wedding! The Rose Garden in Allentown, PA provided a perfect backdrop for their creative session and the dance floor was packed all night, right through the debut of the Same Day Edit film that was wildly cheered by the capacity crowd. What a great wedding to be a part...

Heather & Michael – Bermuda Cruise R...

Heather and Michael invited us to shoot Film, Photography and DJ their Cruise Vacation Destination wedding to Bermuda. What a pleasure! Destination weddings aren’t for everyone, but for those with an adventurous streak they are an absolute blast and stunningly gorgeous. It’s not surprising that it’s one of the best parts of our job when we get to travel with awesome people....

Meghan & Seth – Skytop Lodge Wedding Fi...

This was the first time I got to film at Skytop Lodge in the Poconos. It is a virtual wedding heaven there with picturesque imagery every where you turn. Beautiful views from Seth’s golf session, Meghan’s relaxing preparations on a porch over looking the golf course, the emotional first look by the bridge and the waterfall, the sunset courtyard for the ceremony, and top it off with a stunning moonscape to end the night with a sparkler send off! Oh yeah, and the personal vows were straight out of a movie and the speeches where heartfelt and utterly hilarious at times. This is the type of wedding that begs to be made into a film,...

Ashley & Peter – Sweetwater Farms Weddi...

Ashley and Peter are literally the perfect couple for shooting a wedding film! They are both so much fun with great personalities and are absolutely stunning when they are walking down the isle! Both their ceremony and reception was held at Sweetwater Farm Bed and Breakfast in Glen Mills.  Its always nice when the couple has everything at one location.  Its a lot stress for both bride and groom and great for the photographer.  The day turned out gorgeous and the reception was so much fun with the band “Imagine” keeping everyone dancing throughout the night.

Jessica & Craig – Stroudsmoor Country I...

Jessica and Craig were such a pleasure to be a able to film. Such a picture perfect couple and what a great day to be a part of. Absolutely some of the best personal vows I have ever heard, and I am a huge fan of personal vows! Everything was perfect down to the most minute details. The location of their ceremony was Ridgecrest. Its always a beautiful ceremony with that great view.  I would highly recommend the Ridgecrest location to anyone looking for an outdoor scenic view during their ceremony.  Their reception was awesome!  They hired the band Mashwork Orange to keep everyone dancing throughout the night.  Well, they sure did just that....

Christina & Robert – Woodstone Country ...

Christina and Robert were such a fun couple to be with! They both have such a kind, easy-going spirit. Christina was such a calm bride and really seemed to enjoyed her special day. Robert was just “one of the guys” and very easy to work with.   Christina and Robert got married at Woodstone Country Club. Their ceremony in the beautiful lodge was great and then their reception in the wedding hall rocked the dance floor.  Robert is a fireman in Northampton, so he was able to bring an antique fire truck along with two of the trucks they use when saving lives. And of course, my favorite way to end a wedding, with fireworks! Photography: Bar None...

Timi & Keith – Same Day Edit – Am...

Timi and Keith decided that with him being a farmer with a huge barn on their beautiful farm that it would simply make sense to convert it for their big day into a wedding extravaganza. They absolutely made the right choice! After the ceremony at Friedens Lutheran Church in Kempton, PA, we headed back to the farm. Having seen the barn in full farming mode I was literally stunned to see the transformation that had occurred through the hard work they put into it! And as if to reward them for their hard work they were blessed with an absolutely gorgeous September sunshine the entire day. And this all in turn made our job really easy, all we...

Thinking about a more informal Wedding? Sep12

Thinking about a more informal Wedding?

Food for thought from Tara over at the Mauch Chunk Ballroom blog. (By the way GREAT venue in beautiful downtown Jim Thorpe) We definitely saw a trend this summer for more informal weddings. It’s something we think is neat idea for the right couple. After all, less time sitting for a formal dinner and more time for dancing is never a bad thing! (For the right couple..) So while yes, less formal does have it’s good qualities here Tara makes some great counterpoints why going to the extreme and eliminating “all the rules” can sometimes lead to some unforeseen issues. Bottom line as we always tell our clients is any idea...

Lisette & Noel – Hawaiian Destination S...

Watch Couples Reaction     He says in the beginning of the film “one of the most beautiful places in the world.” I would certainly like to see the other places he is referring to as well. The Big Island in Hawaii affords visitors and locals the ability to swim with the dolphins(or manta rays) right off the beach, zip over 300 ft waterfalls on a wire, and boat right up to a volcano spewing red hot lava straight into the ocean. The Four Seasons Resort Hualalai is the perfect place to enjoy the more majestic beach scene, and Lisette and Noel did just that. The stunning beachside ceremony was live-streamed to far distant...

Introducing Digital ...

The other day I was packing up my stuff to move into my new place, and it became clear to me that I had accumulated a lot of junk.  And that I would have to throw out a great deal of it before it was all said and done. When it came to my box of DVDs, the decision was fairly easy. Though I had...

Diana & Raul – Cosmopolitan Allentown &...

Despite some rain and cloudy weather, there could not have been a more perfect day for Diana & Raul’s classic-style celebration!  Fashionably donning some vintage-style hairstyles and showing up in a truly classic car, these two certainly had their personalities show through in every aspect of their special day.  Seeing their dedication and commitment to each other was immediately apparent, and testified by their many years as a couple preparing for marriage!  And they certainly knew how to get the party going at the Cosmopolitan in Allentown with DJ Cap Cee spinning the beats.  A bigger group of partiers I have yet to find!  May the...

Use lighting to transform a room!

We’re proud to partner with Omnivent to facilitate enhanced lighting packages. These packages go far beyond “The DJ setting out 10 uplights around the room”. Our custom lighting packages are tailored to each individual space and client vision. While many DJ’s simply purchase lighting equipment and then begin calling themselves lighting professionals we decided awhile back we would partner with true professionals and add their options to our award winning entertainment packages. Don’t settle for a DJ that also happens to own some extra lights. Ask yourself…would you let your dentist do you taxes? Hire a...
