Books and sweet things are the perfect inspiration for a baby shower! If You Give a Mouse a Cookie is a favorite children's book, lending itself to nostalgia-inspired decor and food and, of course, light-hearted fun. The venue was warm and comfortable, really, a space that felt like home. A colorful mimosa and juice bar provided celebratory drinks, both with and without champagne, to celebrate mom and baby. We also toasted with - you guessed it! - homemade cookies and milk in vintage glass bottles. We're excited to add another B baby to the family!

Marisa and Tyler were up for anything, so their wedding style took guests on a gorgeous, surprising journey.
Attendants - both men and women - were subdued in shades of slate and navy, but the bridesmaids' bouquets offered a tease of apricot and magenta, a beautiful contrast to Marisa's flowers in shades of cream and white with touches of light blue and green. Cocktail hour design was soft and elegant, with neutral tones tucked in to complement the natural appeal of the space.
As guests entered the pavilion at Fern Hill Weddings for dinner and dancing they were greeted by a live band and breathtaking decor. The effect was both dramatic and fun, the pavilion having been transformed by suspended greenery structures with brightly-colored hanging flowers and strings of Edison lights creating a romantic glow. Farm tables were covered with potted greenery and dozens of candles and Moroccan tiles served as place cards. The day was exciting and unique ... just like the bride and groom.

ALEX AND ZACH’S WEDDING STYLE WAS ELEGANT AND CAREFULLY CRAFTED WITH LOVE. MOTHER NATURE TOYED WITH THE IDEA OF BEING UNCOOPERATIVE BUT THE SKIES CLEARED IN TIME FOR THEIR OPEN-AIR CEREMONY UNDER AN ANCIENT OAK TREE.
BRIDESMAIDS AND GROOMSMEN WERE UNDERSTATED AND SOPHISTICATED IN PETAL PINK AND COBALT BLUE; ALEX PERSONIFIED CLASSIC GLAM IN HER TIMELESS SHEATH GOWN. BOUQUETS WERE COMPOSED OF STRIKING PINK PEONIES TUCKED AMONG BLUSH ROSES AND EUCALYPTUS. GOLD ACCENTS AND COMPLEMENTARY FLORALS, KISSED WITH JUST ENOUGH SPARKLE, FILLED THE BALLROOM.
THE CRYSTAL CHANDELIER AND BACKDROP OF MARQUEE LIGHTS COMPLETED THE PICTURE. ONCE GUESTS HIT THE DANCE FLOOR THE LIVE BAND MADE SURE THE PARTY NEVER STOPPED!

Penn State and Downtown State College played a large part of Jeff and Katie's love story so it was natural that they would do their first look at an iconic location: the steps of Old Main, on the Penn State campus. Katie wore a classic, showstopping lace gown and bridesmaids wore petal pink, offering a striking contrast to another nod to their Penn State pride: the men's navy suits and socks.
Pale peach cabbage roses and lush greenery filled the ballroom. Floral hoops suspended from the ceiling and greenery draped from every ledge provided a soft, dreamy backdrop.
How can we forget Barkley? Jeff and Katie are a gorgeous couple in so many ways but their sweet, photogenic bulldog stole the show. He knew that his job as ring bearer was an important one and he handled it like a pro. Furbabies in weddings can be a dangerous gamble but Barkley could teach a class in how to behave ... and he has a killer smile.

Maria and Josh had a joyful celebration that was filled with smiles and happy tears on a bright, perfect Central Pennsylvania day. The couple was there to celebrate their love with family and friends, and they did not disappoint! The party started at the rehearsal and kept the momentum going. In a day filled with touching moments, the most breathtaking was the first look that wasn't: in an intimate, sweet gesture, Maria and Josh stood back-to-back on either side of French doors, clasping hands. Even through her tears, Maria's thousand-watt smile never faded. The bridesmaids in periwinkle and groomsmen in gray were a gorgeous contrast to Josh's dark blue tux and Maria's showstopping white gown and cathedral train. The bouquets were crafted of white flowers with blush accents and eye-catching anemone. The color scheme carried over to the reception with understated blues and gray, soft white and blush adorning the tables, with the addition of pops of gold. Of course there were nods to their connection to Penn State everywhere, from Maria's garter to blue and white pom poms on the dance floor to the Nittany Lion Inn venue itself. The bridal party entrance was a lip sync battle, setting the tone for the rest of the evening! The dance floor was packed and filled with laughter (and more than a few rousing Penn State chants). Thank you vendors!

SAY WHAT YOU WILL ABOUT THE LUCK THAT RESULTS FROM A RAINY WEDDING DAY, BUT TAKES A VERY SPECIAL COUPLE TO TRULY ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES PRESENTED BY A TORRENTIAL DOWNPOUR. KATIE AND MIKE WERE JUST THAT BRIDE AND GROOM! NOTHING WAS GOING TO DAMPEN THEIR SPIRITS: HER CALM, SOOTHING DEMEANOR AND HIS PLAYFUL SENSE OF HUMOR SET THE TONE FOR THE DAY.
THE SKIES WERE CLEAR FOR A SIGNATURE PENN STATE FIRST LOOK AND BRIDAL PARTY PHOTOS AT THEIR FAVORITE CAMPUS LOCATIONS. IN FACT, THE RAIN DIDN'T START UNTIL THE BRIDE AND HER FATHER ENTERED THE CEREMONY TENT. MOTHER NATURE ADDED A GORGEOUS, DRAMATIC BACKDROP AS THEY EXCHANGED VOWS.
A TENT ADORNED WITH GREENERY GARLANDS & CASCADING FLOWERS IN SHADES OF CREAMS, AND SOFT PURPLES WELCOMED GUESTS TO THE RECEPTION. FAMILY-STYLE COMFORT FOODS KEPT EVERYONE FULL AND HAPPY LEADING INTO AN EVENING FULL OF LAUGHS AND RIDICULOUS DANCE MOVES.

EDEN AND ADDISON WANTED TO CELEBRATE THEIR MARRIAGE WITH THEIR FAVORITE THINGS: LIVE MUSIC, FUN FOOD, AND THEIR CLOSEST FRIENDS AND FAMILY. AN INTIMATE, NATURAL CEREMONY SETTING WAS IMPORTANT TO THEM SO THEY SELECTED A VENUE WITH A PRIVATE DOCK THAT LED TO PROTECTED MARSHLANDS. LIGHT, SPOTTY RAIN ON THE WEDDING DAY DIDN’T DAMPEN THE MOOD; IN FACT, THE CLOUDY SKIES WERE A PERFECT COMPLEMENT TO SOFT SAGE AND SLATE HUES THAT ADORNED THE RUSTIC RECEPTION AREA.

SHOWERING THE BRIDE WITH GIFTS AND WELL WISHES BEFORE HER WEDDING DAY IS A TIME-HONORED TRADITION. DOING SO WITH STYLE AND STAYING ON TREND IS A MUST WHEN THE BRIDE IS A WEDDING PROFESSIONAL! A STARK STUDIO SPACE WITH SKY-HIGH CEILINGS AND TONS OF NATURAL LIGHT MADE IT THE PERFECT BACKDROP FOR BOLD BLACK AND WHITE WITH SPLASHES OF PINK AND BERRY. DECONSTRUCTED COMFORT FOODS AND A CHAMPAGNE ND SORBET COCKTAIL BAR MADE GUESTS FORGET THEY WERE IN AN EVENT SPACE AND INSTEAD FELT LIKE THEY WERE SEATED IN SOMEONES HOME. THE WEDDING DESIGNER GAVE IT FIVE STARS!

LAUREN AND ZACH'S ROMANTIC SPRING WEDDING WAS THE EPITOME OF SOUTHERN CHARM AND ELEGANCE. ROSE HILL PLANTATION IS A PICTURE-PERFECT VENUE TUCKED AMONG MAGNOLIA TREES IN THE MIDDLE OF ABSOLUTE, GORGEOUS SILENCE. THE BRIDE ARRIVED TO HER CEREMONY IN DRAMATIC FASHION BY WAY OF THE HEAVY, WOODEN DOORS AND THE STONE STEPS OF THE HISTORIC FARMHOUSE. THE RESIDENT SWANS WERE EAGER TO BOMB THE COUPLE'S FIRST PHOTOS AS GUESTS ENJOYED COCKTAILS AND HORS D'OEUVRES ON THE PATIO. SOFT ACCENTS OF GREENERY AND LACE WITH POPS OF GOLD PAIRED WITH BLUSH AND CREAM FLOWERS TO GIVE THE ROOM A DREAMY GLOW.
