Allenberry Resort Wedding: Brinley & Dalton

Sparks flew during this vibrant, fun, emotion-packed Allenberry Resort wedding in Boiling Springs, PA!  From their *ringbearer driving* down the aisle, to their pups, to all the parents of this blended family playing key roles and finally, probably the most hilarious bouquet toss at a reception I have ever witnessed.

Why Rhinehart Photography?

Brinley shares, “Lisa photographed a friend of mine and I just loved how beautiful her shots were, especially the sunset shots and the black and white images. Rather than the really bright light typical wedding photos, Lisa uses lighting to create photos that have more intimacy, color, emotion and drama. I also enjoyed that Lisa just told us what to do and I didn’t have to worry about how to look.”

Yay, that all makes me so happy to hear!  Yes, no worries at all!  We got such a wide variety of shots, from romantic and elegant to silly and playful, they were 100% themselves!

Allenberry Resort Wedding Prep & Pups!

Brinley shares, “We wanted to include the dogs (Ana and Apollo) in our wedding but we didn’t want them in the ceremony so we thought them being in the getting ready photos would be fun.”

For getting ready preparations I started with a few key details like Brinkley’s wedding gown and their wedding rings. I focused on mostly candids, and was able to capture Ana, her giant dog, jumping up on the bed! P.S. How cute is Ana’s flower collar?!

Family is Key: In Memory of Her Brother

Brinley adds, “The ladies who dressed me were my mom and stepmom. My stepmom Karen has been in my life since I was in 6th grade. She is so wonderful and I am so thankful to be in her life. MMy family is very blended and I am so grateful for how well everyone gets along and were able to celebrate our big day!”

Brinley shares, “My shoulder tattoo is something I got after my younger brother Brayden passed away almost 6 years ago. He passed away riding his four-wheeler on a track. Brayden taught me how to snowboard and was so excited to go that winter so my tattoo is a tribute to him with mountains. The tattoo says “Together we will ride again” and then I added his race number 597 which doubles as his birthdate May 1997.”

Such a touching tribute to Brinley’s brother, Brayden. Keep reading to see the other ways they included him on their wedding day.

Gentleman & A Little Mercedes

Such handsome gentlemen, all in navy suits!

A Rush of Emotions

Brinley smiles, “Walking down the aisle, I was so excited and Dalt looked so handsome.”

Dalton shares,  “Seeing Brinley walk down the aisle, I felt a rush of emotion from everyone standing up and seeing how beautiful she looked.”

Dalton adds, “We were both so nervous reading our vows. It really got to me and I teared up a little.”

Such an emotional wedding ceremony! You can see the sparkle from Dalton’s eye seeing Brinley walking down the aisle.

Allenberry Resort Wedding Ceremony

Brinley & Dalton share, “We chose Allenberry Resort because it is close, so beautiful, and they had an amazing plan B if it rained (and it did).  It was even more perfect than we could have hoped for! 

Brinley adds, “I love the antique furniture they have and the intimate feel in the Carriage House too.”

I have to agree, such a fantastic venue– and this space was their “Plan B”…

Romantic Golden Hour Photos at Allenberry Resort

Dalton smiles, “Lisa took photos of us, and we were just so happy together we honestly forgot about the reception.”

Ha! We got some gorgeous photos of Brinley & Dalton during golden hour. I always love to sneak the couple out some time after the ceremony or during the reception for sunset photos.

First Dance at Allenberry Resort

Brinley shares, “The first dance was “No One” by Alicia Keys. Dalt loves to sing this to me so naturally, he sang a little during our dance.”

All the Parents

Brinley shares, “Dalt’s mom, Wendy, loves the singer Meat Loaf so their dance started with one of his songs and they laughed. They thought it was perfect when it switched to the Toy Story song “You’ve Got a Friend in Me“. They both love Disney movies.”

Their large blended family is very important to the happy couple and they included parents in so many different ways.  Here Dalton’s mom reacts to a special song:

Special Parent Dances & Memories

Brinley shares, “I wanted to do the traditional father-daughter dance, but one day I was so saddened looking at songs for Dalt and his mom and realized my mom will never get the chance to dance with her son at his wedding. I wanted to also do a special dance with her with one of his favorite songsSweet Child O’ Mine“. We then put my late brother’s boutonniere by his photo.”

Hilarious Reception Moments

Brinley shares, “Meaghyn, one of my best friends for over 7 years caught the bouquet. It was too funny because she said to me early how of course she would stand to catch it but she didn’t want to actually catch the bouquet so her response was hilarious.”

The bouquet toss, the best man’s speech, and cake cutting all left people laughing out loud!

All of Our Favorites in One Room

Brinley shares, “Dalton and I love each other’s humor and chill outlook on life.  The wedding day was filled with so much love! Dalt looked at me and said “It’s so crazy how everyone here is here to celebrate us. How amazing is that?” And it’s true, we had all of our favorite people in one room.”
