Megan and Fred's wedding day was consistently both sweet and touching, fun and playful - just like their love!
Their ceremony site was deeply personal: a private, renovated church, owned by the groom's family. They were married while standing in a cupola, with family and friends watching from adjacent balconies. Their daughters did heartfelt readings that left guests in happy tears. Exposed beams and natural light were enhanced by greenery garland on every hand rail and banister of every balcony. Following the ceremony, Megan and Fred led their guests down the lane to a wedding reception at home. Their two-story stone fireplace was filled with pillar candles and greenery, serving as a centerpiece for the indoor/outdoor reception. Cocktail-style seating and food stations kept guests moving!The evening closed with a flawless sunset over their private pond. It was a picture-perfect end to a simply perfect day.

The collaborative design of our Desert Chic styled shoot was a wild mix of pattern and depth, both visual and tactile. Tables were topped with velvet and chiffon, providing a soft and neutral backdrop for place settings composed of pops of soft pink and touches of copper. The floral arrangements were free and natural, blending textures of cactus and soft pampas grass with blush-tinted blooms and touches of copper. The Bride and her maids were fashion-forward and glamorous with an infusion of traditional bridal white with authentic Boho style and just the right amount of sparkle.

Nicole and Mike's early Spring wedding was a gorgeous start to the season!
We put a different spin on their Central PA barn wedding, accenting with colors of deep teal and warm berry tones. Harmony Forge’s stunning landscape set the perfect backdrop for an outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour. Everyone had a great sense of humor: periodic wind gusts up to 40 mph blew through and kept the outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour exciting. In spite of the wind, the day was filled with bright sunshine smiles and laughter.
When a bride says she wants velvet we are all game! We created a custom seating wall for cocktail hour. The 5’ structure was covered in lush teal velvet and accented with climbing greens and copper hoops, guests were instantly greeted with a hint of what was to come in the barn.
Guests were invited into the barn where they were greeted by vintage Edison lights, floral cages and pops of teal and berry. Family-style dinner service kept the party going allowing family and friends to catch up over a delicious meal. The bridal party was a blast, enjoying every minute of the weekend together and keeping the dance floor packed along with family and friends. Congratulations Nicole and Mike!

Megan's wedding may be in Pennsylvania but the Bohemian feel of her brunch bridal shower was a nod to her California roots. The space was breezy and bright with touches of blush, rose, and buff. Texture was abundant: creamy velvet tablecloths with a kiss of gold, a whimsical, asymmetrical balloon arch housing the pops of color, sheer drape as a backdrop to the bride's seat of honor: a gold, geometric chair. The menu kept with the theme with fresh, clean flavors and edible flowers.
Thank you vendors! Best Event Rental, Benjamin's Catering, Avant Garden Floral, Lydia shafer PHOTOGRAPHY studio, and jana scott for capturing the day perfectly.
Throw the challenge of something different to a team of seasoned wedding pros and this is where they'll land.
We wanted to capture the dark beauty of a warehouse space, using industrial elements to add an edge to otherwise traditional components of a wedding reception: re-purposed metal drums for cocktail tables; soft fabrics and textures against aged cement floor and walls; a dining table with bold flowers and metallic elements, all bathed in natural light. The traditional ceremony arch was re-imagined as a custom art installation with over a thousand strands of yarn, adding a dreamy note to a bold backdrop. The moody style of the bride and her attendants was created by mixing grunge-inspired leather with opulent velvet and rich jewel tones. What better place than on the wedding day for a bride to imprint her personality!
We are so proud and thankful to have collaborated with such an amazing team of talented local vendors.

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!

Brittany and Keith march to their own beat, their love and respect for each other shining through every move they make together. Their wedding day was a beautiful blend of tradition and their exquisite, unique personalities. Despite the weather's temperamental attitude, the skies cleared at mid-day and gave the bride and groom the gorgeous, sunny day they deserved.
Brittany was elegant in a beaded lace gown and cathedral-length veil. Her look was poised and effortless: she looked absolutely stunning. The bridal party was fun and easygoing, a reflection of the bride and groom. Bridesmaids wore forest green and carried florals in shades of deep berry, burgundy, and eggplant; groomsmen looked sharp in gray Gingham check jackets. A personal and touching ceremony began with a processional through the apple orchard, leading to a site in the middle of a clearing. The altar was composed of a natural archway adorned with a macrame and lush flowers, set against bright blue skies. As will happen,
their sweet kids stole the show, the boys in suspenders and bow ties and the flower girl carrying a gold hoop adorned with fresh flowers and greenery, a flower crown on her head to match. Clean lines and simplicity were key for dinner and dancing: contemporary bud vases and iron floral stands decorated each table; place settings of rose gold and embossed glass china completed the picture.
The sunset photos may be the most beautiful we've ever seen. Congratulations to our dear friends, Brittany and Keith!
