Brooke Courtney is serving up a wedding today that is so sweet yet so stylish, it will make your heart sing. It all starts with that gorgeous Hayley Paige gown, and is then quickly followed by an overflow of pretty blooms from Petals With Style and stunning stationery by none other than Rifle Paper Company. Well, right when you think it just couldn’t get better, Cork Factory Hotel hits the ball out of the venue park – making this gallery a show-stopper.
From The Bride…Sarah and Chris Simco were married on a bright crisp Spring day in the Pennsylvania Dutch town of Lancaster. The ceremony and wedding both took place in an immaculately renovated Cork Factory now known as the historical Cork Factory Hotel. The exposed brick and industrial factory accents were complemented by the charcoal bridesmaids dresses, and softened by the feminine white, blush pink, and coral peonies and ranunculus of the bouquets made by Stacia from Petals with Style.
The indoor festoon lighting brought a warm and inviting glow to the already picturesque indoor ballroom of the hotel. The romantic centerpieces were perfectly orchestrated collections of antique vases and candles with flowers ranging from sweet peas, and linzanthius, to astilble, veronica, and white freesia.
The Rifle Paper Company provided chic, yet rustic invitations, place setting cards, table numbers, and a Wedding Certificate for all of the guests to sign adorned with perfectly illustrated versions of the bride and groom. The bride and groom’s specialty cocktails both included the elegant liqueur St Germain from Paris (the couple’s favorite getaway destination); his with an orange twist, and hers with a single raspberry garnish! The photobooth from Smilebooth kept the guests entertained when they weren’t on the dance floor cutting a rug!
To finish the night, the couple’s favorite chocolate company, “eclat” (voted Best Chocolate in America by Bon Appetit), located in West Chester, PA provided chocolate covered caramels that melt in your mouth finished with delicate flakes of sea salt as a wedding favor the guests.
