Wedding Aces Bridal Buds

Madeleine & Erin 

July 14 

New Hope, Pennsylvania   

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride: 

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

HollyHedge Estate was the first and only wedding venue we visited. New Hope, Pa. is one of our favorite areas, so we were instantly intrigued. The second we arrived at HollyHedge, we knew.  It was the most beautiful, ethereal, rustic, fairytale place we had ever seen; too perfect.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Flowers – Mark Bryan and his team of experts did the most amazing job of translating what we asked for into the most amazingly beautiful floral arrangements!  They could not have been more perfect.

2. Table cards – Erin actually handmade our table cards himself.  They could not have been more darling and personal.  Just the right touch.  Our amazing wedding photographer, Rachel Pearlman took some amazing detail shots of the cards.

3. Toasts – Our families made such beautiful toasts to us during the reception.  In particular my mother, brothers and our bridal party.  So touching and sweet!

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

The first look.  I was led out to the fountain area in the front courtyard of HollyHedge Estate.  Erin was standing there with a pink ribbon tied as a blindfold across his eyes.  I was so excited and nervous at the same time as I walked towards him.  When I reached Erin, I took his hand in mine, and we told each other how much we loved one another.  He told me how he could not wait to spend the rest of his life with me, and I told him how lucky I felt to have such an amazing person in my life.  We turned to face each other,and I began to untie the ribbon.  As it fell away, I could see it in his eyes that were truly meant to be together.  We both felt so connected in that moment.  It was so special; like a real spark between two people.

Rustic Sage Green Summer Farm Wedding in Pennsylvania

Posted by Caitlin on Oct 04, 2013

Halli & Eric 

August 31

Dallas, Pennsylvania 

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

I knew I wanted something rustic and after looking at pictures of weddings held at Friedman farms, I knew this had to be our location.  The grounds itself were gorgeous, but the barn gave me a blank slate and allowed me to create my vision.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. My brooch bouquet made by my mother-in-law.  I saw a picture of one in a wedding blog and thought it was such a unique idea.  My mother-in-law offered to make me one and she started going to estate sales to collect a variety of brooches.  I love how I’m able to keep the bouquet forever!

2. Our wedding chuppah made of birch.  I wanted to incorporate both religions in the wedding ceremony, and I thought a chuppah was the perfect way!  Eric and his father created it from scratch, and on the wedding day, his mother and aunt picked flowers to decorate the poles.

3. Our cupcake display on a variety of glass cake plates, a birch wood stand and my favorite, a glass teacart from my mother-in-law!

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about. 

Eric and I decided to do a first look on the grounds.  It was such an intimate and special moment for the two of us.

Katie & Garry

Dauphin, Pennsylvania 

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

We picked The Peter Allen House because it had the perfect combination of beautiful outdoor scenery and a classy vintage backdrop.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

My bouquet, the ceremony programs, and the signs my Dad made for around the grounds.

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding you can’t stop thinking about.

As part of our wedding, we decided to do a foot washing ceremony to demonstrate our commitment to putting the other first and serving one another in love. The combination of this act, the music, and the atmosphere made it a very memorable moment, not just for ourselves, but for everyone who attended.

Modern, Citrus-Themed Wedding in Pennsylvania

Posted by Caitlin on Nov 02, 2012

Natalie & Numa 

October 7

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

It reminded me of a NYC loft–Numa and I are originally from New York, and we wanted a NYC chic, modern feel. The brick walls and tall windows really impressed us. We had visited three other venues in that same day, but the minute we walked into Tendenza, we knew we had found the perfect WOW factor!

2. Which four details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. I loved my dress! I didn’t want the night to end because I want to take it off.

2. My florists did such an AMAZING job with the ceremony and reception centerpieces.

3. We had 16×20 engagement pictures on easels all over the ceremony and reception.

4. I also loved Numa’s tuxedo! He looked so handsome! I remember walking down the aisle toward him, and I felt so lucky!

3. Give us the one moment from your wedding day that you cannot stop thinking about.

It’s so hard not to say the whole day! But I remember the moment I had to say my vows–that moment was electrifying. I felt every word in my entire being. It was really special, especially to see Numa cry. I knew he felt it too.

Our Q&A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

I loved growing up on a farm, and although I don’t consider myself ‘country’ I wanted to have my wedding in a place I felt cozy and comfortable.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

My favorite parts of the decorations would be the burlap wrapped mason jars, with twine and pearls. We hand made everything and it was so worth it! We also incorporated scrabble letters to show off my husband’s family’s favorite game, and froze our home-grown berries in the ice cubes to add some color!

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

Lists, lists, lists! One thing I wish I had done better is made lists of tasks that could be delegated. So many people offered to help, but even with my planning skills I couldn’t keep everything straight! Mega organization is KEY in the final weeks especially.

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

One of the highlights of the day was the mother and son dance! They danced to “Your Smiling Face” by James Taylor, didn’t plan anything but just rocked the floor! The whole crowd was laughing and clapping and it turned the wedding into a party instantly! It was a perfect segue from solemn to fun!
