Megan and Kevin's wedding was deeply personal; the couple wanted to celebrate their love where countless memories had already been made, their family cabin. The whole weekend was filled with celebrations; guests stayed in small cabins at a neighboring campground adding to the camp weekend fun.
Megan was absolutely stunning in a lace gown and tulle skirt, accented by a lush floral bouquet. Kevin wore a green suit and floral tie, which is one of our favorite looks to date. Of course, it wouldn't be a creekside wedding without feathers in the groom's boutonniere to reflect his passion for fly fishing. Their first look on the dock, followed by an intimate creekside ceremony, was absolutely picturesque. Rows of wooden benches filled the front lawn leading up to two perfectly placed trees that acted as a natural arch for one of the most stunning floral arches. The surprise of the ceremony was their family dog, who proudly flaunted her greenery crown as she made her way down the aisle.
Guests enjoyed cocktails, food, and live music tucked under a lush canopy of trees filled with Edison lights. Individual herb jars, grown and dried by the Bride's Mother, guided each guest to their seats. The reception was overflowing with greenery; ferns, cattails, and eucalyptus played into the cabin's natural landscape. Tables overflowing with soft textiles and glittering candlelight filled the tent. The reception's focal point was a 4' greenery hoop, which stole the show and would later light up a packed dancefloor.
After dinner, the band took the stage, and the woods filled with the sounds of their celebration. This wedding was by far the best dancefloor we had all year. The couple brought donuts and their favorite log cakes all the way from Philly for their guests, and they were a hit! The night ended with a cozy bonfire that allowed guests to continue to celebrate throughout the night. This wedding celebration in the woods was truly one to remember, congratulations Megan and Kevin!

Megan and Matt's dreamy, romantic wedding day began with a private exchange of vows, just between the two of them and their tiny dog, Sugar. The site of their marriage ceremony was tucked among ancient willow trees, which offered shade on a sunny day with bright blue skies. Live Bluegrass music created a joyful atmosphere, leading the bridal party down the aisle towards a touching ceremony. Following cocktail hour, guests were invited into the main tent where they were greeted by farm tables adorned with wrought iron, lush greenery, and seemingly endless candles. CROSS BACK farm chairs provided guest dinner seating. The focal point of the tent was the bridal party seating: a King's table set for 26, complete with personalized copper mugs and a 21" suspended centerpiece. After dining on a showstopper of a meal, guests alternated between enjoying an opulent dessert display and dancing the night away.

Leah and Garrett's creekside wedding was the perfect 2020 micro wedding. A small number of family and friends quarantined for weeks to celebrate their love, and it could not have been more perfect.
The day started with a picturesque creekside ceremony; both the bride and groom looked entirely at home in the forest. The couple wanted the ceremony to be intimate and personal, officiated by a close friend Leah and Garrett exchanged handwritten vows that reflected on the many years they've spent together and what all is to come. Cheers roared through the forest as the ceremony concluded, followed by a celebratory champagne toast. The couple fully embraced the day and did not hesitate to ditch their shoes and jump into the creek after exchanging their vows.
The reception reflected the couple's natural laid back style. Farm tables were overflowing with gauze, candles, and mixed glass vases filled with delicate blooms. Soft grey linens with cascading arrangements atop of vintage milk glass compotes added texture and elegance. Each place setting was adorned with hand-dyed napkins, linen place cards, and a sprig of greenery—our favorite part, locally sourced hand sanitizer bottles, which complimented the design and served a purpose. Very 2020.
Every part of Leah and Garrett's day was deeply personal, and the first dance was no exception. The bride and groom kicked off the reception with an acoustic performance by one of the groomsmen. Guests indulged in custom woodfired pizza creations and individually wrapped fruit tarts. The night concluded with a stunning sunset and a bonfire to cap off the perfect day. Congratulations, Leah and Garrett!

Guest tables were adorned with glass lanterns collected by the bride and groom during their trips to Germany.On Kim and David's wedding day, they were focused completely on the experience of being married in front of their close family and friends. Everything about it was deeply personal and filled with meaning.
The bride wanted bursts of color, and she achieved that look! Bridesmaids were lovely in rich shades of copper, navy, and teal. Bouquets and floral accents featured deep burgundy peonies, ranunculus, and pincushions. The groom (almost) stole the show: there's no more striking fashion statement than a man in dress blues! Their open-air ceremony was performed by a close friend, against a backdrop of a cloudy sky.
Place cards were thoughtfully displayed in miniature glass vases with delicate ferns. The groom hand-crafted the table numbers, guest favors, and the groomsmen's cuff links. Guest tables were adorned with glass lanterns collected by the bride and groom during their trips to Germany. After a dinner menu that featured locally sourced foods, the reception turned into a huge dance party with the help of a live R&B group! Every guest was on their feet, dancing. We've never seen anything like it!

Alaina and Miles wanted a laid-back event that engaged their family and friends. They celebrated their wedding day in a natural setting that felt most comfortable: at home, surrounded by wildflowers.
Their union took place under a climbing greenery arch set against a backdrop of a stunning barn, but only after they took time alone for a private exchange of vows. They selected transportation that was as fun and unique as they are! An MG Midget served as both their getaway car and the entrance to their first dance.
Afterwards, their wildflower theme carried over into a casual cocktail party, with touches of candlelight and vintage macrame. An evening of live music and hand-passed hors d'ouevres allowed them to relax and truly enjoy their guests.
A final, magical touch: glass lanterns were suspended from an enormous tree, flickering like fireflies after the sun went down.

Julie and Ryan's shared love for Nantucket island led to a nautical-inspired theme that carried from their invitation suite to the breathtaking blue of hydrangea and anemone. The entire vibe of their wedding ceremony and reception reflected their warm, welcoming nature. Having a good time with friends and family was their first priority! Setting the tone from the start, they walked down the aisle to bluegrass music, led by the real star of the day: the ring bearer, their sweet dog, Jaxon. At the reception guests enjoyed a station-style dinner. Blue and white striped table runners and delicate centerpieces closed the circle on their maritime theme. Cocktail-style seating left plenty of room for dancing! The evening ended with a dramatic sendoff: the bridal party released enormous fire lanterns into the summer sky.

Sarah and Michael celebrated their wedding one of those dreamy, picture-perfect September days, with clear blue skies and not a cloud in the sky. The ceremony took place under a stunning geometric arch, handcrafted by the bride's uncle and adorned with flowers and greenery. Their dog, Stella, was appropriately adorned, too, with a gorgeous floral collar. She stole the show! Cocktail hour was tucked among the trees, where guests sipped cocktails from personalized pint glasses. The glass-top tent was a showstopper, furnished with farm tables and cross-back chairs, abundant, soft candlelight. Flowers were striking and lush in hues of burgundy and deep greens, accented by individual marble tiles that served as place cards. Dinner was filled with cheers, tears and so much laughter. Sunset kicked off the biggest dance party we've seen all year, in no small part because the clear tent made everyone feel like they were dancing under the stars. Congratulations Sarah and Michael!

Kathelia and Lee's wedding was bright and filled with energy! From the pink in the bride's hair to the whimsical flowers, the day was bursting at the seams with reflections of the couple's colorful personalities. They chose their date to coincide with a weekend that is traditionally filled with fun and built-in entertainment for their guests and they succeeded! There's no better time for celebration than Arts Fest.
From the moment they woke up, they each had the biggest, most genuine smiles on their faces that never faded. Bridesmaids were striking in hues of turquoise while Groomsmen rocked navy blue suits as a subtle nod to their Penn State roots. The day was full of nostalgia with stops at the Lion Shrine, Hintz Alumni Center, and of course, their favorite bar, The Phyrst. When you get married during Arts Fest, you absolutely have to take a walk down Allen Street, topped off with a Lion Chariot ride through campus.
There's nothing more touching than when a family member performs the ceremony, and the groom's brother did not disappoint. His words were second only to the vows that the bride and groom wrote for each other. Afterwards, live Spanish guitar greeted guests for cocktails on the patio at Toftrees - one of many surprises of the night. Nothing could have prepared friends and family for the thoughtful touches and burst of excitement and color in the reception space!
The reception entrance was epic, with fog cannons and a choreographed first dance, ending in an air guitar breakout. The bride, a graphic designer, created a custom logo for their wedding that became the focal point of their reception space. The groom, a techie, provided LED orbs and individual bracelets for each guest, all synced with the music. The dance floor was packed all night with guests with glowing bracelets and airborne orbs. It was one of the best dance parties of the year

We love throwing baby showers, especially when they are for our past clients! We were honored to help with Lauren's woodland-themed event. This backyard baby shower was understated but lovely, with sweet little touches of woodland creatures and hints of blush to help welcome baby girl Henn. Guests surrounded the mother-to-be with love, presents, and memories that will last a lifetime.
