From Forget-Me-Not Vintage RentalsMeghan did an absolutely amazing job at illustrating her wedding day and her vision below, so my description is brief. Meghan and Nick got married at Meghan’s parent’s beautifully restored farm house property. It was such a naturally beautiful property, that even though it poured most of the day, everything still looked stunning. The words english garden, natural and greenery were most commonly used when dreaming up the couples big day. We chose to focus on hues of green, gold and amber as well as elements of natural wood through all of the vintage furniture.

From the Bride… Both Nick and I envisioned our wedding as two equally important parts; first a meaningful and intimate-feeling ceremony, followed by a great party with all our favorite people that ended with everyone on the dance floor for the entire night. For as long as I can remember, when I pictured my wedding I pictured getting married under the walnut tree in my parents front yard. They live on a 200 year-old, 50-acre farm in rural Pennsylvania so it really provided such a perfect and special venue for us. The location was by far the most important element and once we had decided to have an outdoor ceremony/cocktail hour with a tented reception the rest came very naturally. In fact, my sister-in-law’s best friend designed our save the dates and invitation suite using the outline of the walnut tree from a picture I had taken several years ago.

I never really liked the idea of specific “wedding colors” and gravitated more toward identifying colors, tones and textures that worked toward creating a warm, rustic elegance. This ended up being primarily gold and blush tones, shades of sage and mint green, ivories and elements of natural wood and glass. My style vision was loosely based on the idea of a formal dinner or tea party in the middle of the woods, something you might go to in a vintage gown and bare feet. I wanted it to feel elegant but relaxed and embrace the natural/beautiful surroundings of the rural location. We owe Forget Me Not Vintage Rentals for making this even remotely possible.

My parents have several cats that live in the barn, they had had kittens earlier that summer so there were 3 or 4 little kittens running around the whole time, one especially friendly one made it into quite a few photos.

Some of our DIY details included custom cornhole sets and lawn jenga that Nick and his Dad made by hand in the garage and then Nick and I painted. Nick and I also spray painted all of the little gold animals that were seen throughout things, including the seating cards, I wrote all the guests names out and made all the escort cards.

My favorite moment was definitely meeting Nick at the end of the aisle, it was the happiest moment of my life… and he promptly burst into happy tears which developed into laughter when he couldn’t compose himself (very well documented by our photographer). It was happy and funny and very emotional… a priceless moment on so many levels. That being said, the ceremony in general was our favorite part. The rain let up just long enough for us to have the ceremony outside. We didn’t think we were going to be able to do that, and had only set up chairs, no decor, and it turned out we really didn’t need any. It was perfect just as it was, under the tree. We were married by one of my best friend’s mother, who has watched our group of friends grow through relationships and experiences since we were in middle school. She knows me (and all of us) very well and has performed the marriage ceremony for 3 of my best girlfriends, including my maid of honor. I also was able to get dressed in my childhood bedroom and watch my guests arrive from my window (you can see me in the top right window looking out in a wedding dress on one of the pictures of the house) which was so surreal and amazing.

Even if you are the most organized, or most laid-back person in the world, something will not go as you hoped or expected it would on your wedding day. It will still be the best day of your life. I promise. We planned a wedding with a lot of outdoor elements, including lawn games, and Chinese lanterns that we were going to light at night and it rained the. entire. day. EXCEPT, it held off just long enough for us to get married under the tree in my parents yard which was amazing. Even if the rain hadn’t held off we still had a ton of fun dancing the night away with all of our favorite people.

It’s been a few years since I walked down the aisle (ok, maybe more than a few), but sometimes I come across a wedding detail that truly makes me wish I could it all over again. Well, let’s just say this gorgeous bride’s stunning Amsale dress totally had me at hello. And really, so did every other detail planned by Truly You Events and captured by Robert And Kathleen Photographers. And it’s all waiting for you in the VAULT.

From Robert And Kathleen PhotographersJenna and Jimmy locked eyes for the very first time in a decidedly unromantic location: a terminal at JFK Airport. But that moment kicked off a whirlwind romance that would change their lives forever. But, there in the airport, they were strangers to one another. Jimmy was drawn to Jenna’s sweet smile; she to his kind eyes. They introduced themselves and were each pleasantly surprised to discover that they were both set to depart for the very same destination – embarking on a Birthright trip to Israel.

They spent the next ten days exploring Israel together. The hours they spent sitting next to each other on a bus taking them from city to city serving as the ultimate series of first dates. They had hours to talk uninterrupted and got to know one another pretty well over those miles traveled together. By the time the trip came to an end, they knew there was something between them that they couldn’t ignore. The end of the trip meant they had to return to their respective homes, which just happened to be on opposite sides of the country – Jimmy in LA, Jenna in Boston. They spent the next year and a half dating long distance, making time each and every day to talk and visiting as often as they could. At the end of the summer in 2012, Jimmy moved to NYC for business school and they were both delighted to finally be in the same time zone. They continued their not-quite-as-long distance for another year as Jenna completed graduate school in Boston.  After Jenna completed her program, they were finally able to live in the same city together, settling into the NYC’s scenic Chelsea neighborhood.  Once again, they explored together; finding new restaurants to visit and enjoying daily runs on the city’s west side.

That spring, Jimmy concocted a ruse to bring Jenna over to one of their favorite spots on the Hudson River. He asked her to walk down Pier 43 – an unusual request, but Jenna didn’t think much of it at the time. When they got down to the end of the pier, Jimmy surprised her by dropping down on one knee and asking her to be his wife. It was the question she had known the answer to since those days together in Israel so many years before.  Of course she would be his wife, they were meant to find each other. This September, they will become husband and wife.

From The Bride…The vision for our wedding began with the Venue. We knew without a doubt we wanted to use the Cescaphe group. They are the best in Philadelphia with superior service and an excellent reputation. We wanted the venue to reflect us, and Tendenza is just that, Modern chic! We wanted all the elements of the day to reflect that as well. Starting with the dress , it was the fist one I tried on and it was classic yet modern with the delicate tulle flowers on the bottom. The then inspired the flower paper wall. We are both creative people and smart with our finances – trying to make our wedding very personal without spending unnecessary amounts of money.

We wanted the wedding to have distinct style. The flowers had to be unique and a soft pastel color pallet. Our Florist was unbelievable, they truly made our vision come to life . Unlike any typical florist they have amazing creativity and passion which shines through their work. Considering Tendenza has so many bold features already, we incorporated black and white stripes to really balance the classic and modern feel. Also having books with love related titles to reflect “our love story. ” The bridesmaids dresses we chose were in a neutral tone in tulle fabric to coordinate with the tulle flowers on my dress. The groomsman looked rather dapper in a light navy suit and a soft pale pink tie. I loved how the bridesmaids and groomsman looked amazing together yet they didn’t “match” perfectly.

The most appreciated vendor of our wedding day was Matthew. Our photographer. We didn’t choose him only for his creative way of capturing the moments and emotions of our day . But for his kindness and patience. The day flew by and I didn’t even realize he was there, yet after seeing the pictures it made me realize he (and his staff) didn’t miss anything from our day. After planning and prepping and dreaming up what would be our perfect wedding day, we were so happy to have it all come together and we wouldn’t have chosen any other people to make our day just perfect!!
