Hip hip hoorays are in order because not only have we been graced with the presence of a Terrain at Styer’s fête but the magic maker behind the camera is none other than Alison Conklin Photography. Amazing photographer + killer venue along with a melt-your-heart couple is a total win win in SMP land (actually in most lands I’m sure). And we adore every single scrumptious last inch of this unique shindig. It’s the perfectly imperfect gardens, the homespun-esque decor, the lovely, intimate atmosphere. Oh if only we could set up house at Terrain. The next best thing? Spending some time devouring every photograph from this gorgeous wedding in the full gallery.
From the bride… Both having been married before in traditional weddings and not having children, Kathy and Randy decided on a private marriage ceremony at City Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Kathy wore a dress and shawl from Talk of the Walk. Her shoes (flats) were Vera Wang Lavender Label so that she could be photographed around the city at various locations with her husband including Love Park, Logan’s circle and the Art Museum. Thanks to photographer Alison Conklin and florist Sullivan Owen, who did the bride’s bouquet and the groom’s boutonniere, they have great memories of that first special day as husband and wife.
Approximately one week later, the couple invited 50 guests, who consisted of their family and closet friends, to a marriage celebration dinner at Terrain at Styer’s in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania. It was a beautiful Sunday in early October. The couple had Two Paperdolls design the invitation by creating silhouettes from photographs that the couple took of each other. The bride wore a tea length wedding dress and hair piece from BHLDN, a wrap from J.McLaughlin, shoes from Valentino and a vintage purse from her great-grandmother. The flowers at the dinner were designed again by Sullivan Owen. The menu was planned among the couple, Terrain Garden Restaurant executive chef Keith Rudolf and event manager Elizabeth Clark. Two Paperdolls printed a large menu for the event and smaller menus for each guest as a memento of the evening. Additional decorations were purchased by the bride from BHLDN and used in decorating the magical rooms and reception area at Terrain, including the Mushroom Hut, which featured cupcakes and whoopie pies from The Flying Monkey. The bride’s hair was done for both events by Megan Tadeo from John Andrews Salon. She did her own make-up using Bobbi Brown’s latest palette and colors and wore her own jewelry given to her by Randy from Marco Bicego at Neiman Marcus. The bride and groom’s rings are from Sydney Rosen Jewelers. The bride’s engagement and wedding band was designed by Coastal and was hand-engraved on platinum. The guests were given either mint mojito or rosemary sage travel candles as favors in gift bags from Anthropologie. It was a splendid and magical evening, enjoyed by all!!
