Lainey and Eric were married at Fourth Presbyterian Church followed by a reception at The Twentieth Century Club in Pittsburgh, Penn. on Mary 25. Since they are both architects, they chose their venue for it’s charm. “The ballroom . .  had many unique elements, including a stage, speak-easy style seating areas, and a mezzanine to overlook the whole party,” Lainey said. ” And to make it even better, the ballroom had mint colored accents to go along with our color scheme! The bride wore a strapless a-line wedding gown, accessorized with a statement necklace and earrings, while her bridesmaids wore peplum dresses, accessorized with clutches. Attached to the bottom of Lainey’s bouquet was her “something old,” which was her great-grandmother’s vintage handkerchief. We loved how it was so bright with pink peonies, yellow craspedia, orange ranunculuses, and sage green dusty millers! Guests were escorted to their seats with paper pinwheels. To their surprise, they found favor bags waiting for them filled with goodies. “The one moment from the wedding day that we enjoyed the most was our first dance,” she said. “We danced to “The Way You Look Tonight” – a cover by Maroon 5. That dance was the first time where it felt just like us during the day, and it seemed like time slowed down for a few minutes.” Just wait until you see the cake! It was decorated with rainbow sprinkles and a Lego topper.

Nicole and Steven were married at Blue Hound Farm in Lewisberry, Pa. on September 7. “It was absolutely breathtaking,” Nicole said. “Our wedding day was 80 degrees and sunny. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect atmosphere.” The bride wore a lace trumpet Sophia Tolli wedding gown, accessorized with a blusher veil, while her bridesmaids wore various shades of nudes. “The most exciting party of our wedding was when Steven and I did our first look,” she said. “There was so much anticipation building up as we stood there with our eyes closed, holding dozens of balloons in front of our faces, with our bridal party and parents surrounding us. Our photographer finally said, ‘Let go!” and Steven was standing there with a huge smile on his face, white rose and card in hand, and looked as handsome as always.” The reception was held inside the barn where tables were decorated with twinkling lights overhead, and personalized thank you-notes at each place setting. Instead of table numbers, there was table songs. “When our guests heard their song play, they knew it was their turn to head to the buffet,” Nicole said. Guests were also asked to sign a corn hole set. How clever!

Mary and Stephen were married at The Horticulture Center in Philadelphia, Penn. on February 9. “Having a wedding indoors in a greenhouse was the closest I could come to the outdoors in February,” Mary said. She wore an Alvina Valenta wedding gown with an illusion neckline, accessorized with a faux fur stole, while her bridesmaids wore long black J.Crew dresses, accessorized with brown faux fur stoles. “During the ceremony, I carried the prayer book my maternal grandmother carried when she got married in 1947,” she said. “She had hand covered the book with material from her wedding gown and hand tied ribbons to it.” The newlyweds entered the reception to the band playing the theme song from Star Wars. “All our family and friends had gathered on the dance floor to welcome us in,” Mary said. “We weren’t really sure what to expect, but that moment was so warm and exhilarating. One moment we will never forget!” Tables were decorated with baby’s breath in blue mason jars atop tree woodcuts and a sprig of Princess Pine at each place setting, which ended up being attached to each guests’ lapel by the end of the night.

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

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.
