A Wedding that Fully Embraces Spring

There is a reason Spring weddings are insanely popular and it has a lot to do with the crazy gorgeous flowers. And if you can land yourself a venue like the Farm at Eagle’s Ridge with flowering trees, well then consider yourself blessed by the wedding gods. These high school sweethearts fall squarely in that category and with the crafting of Oleander Floral & Events, their Spring floral infused barn wedding is one for the books. Sneak a peek at more of the romance through the lens of Lauren Fair Photography.

From the Bride…Jimmy and I are high school sweethearts, so when he proposed almost 9 years after our first date, we couldn’t wait to finally promise our lives to each other. We wanted our wedding to feel like a relaxed, effortless, romantic dinner party where all of our closest friends and family could gather and celebrate the love that we had built over the years.

When we first started looking at wedding venues, my only requirement was that the ceremony be outside. We came across the Farm at Eagle’s Ridge and the grounds blew me away. We knew pretty immediately that we wanted to be married there by the water. From then on, everything else fell into place.

We were intentional about working with inspiring, passionate, and just overall genuinely good people. We put a lot of trust into our vendors, which allowed us to keep the planning and wedding day as laid back as possible. Needless to say, we worked with some seriously incredible people. Lauren and Tim of Lauren Fair Photography captured our day with such ease and beauty. Cynthia at Oleander managed to create the bouquet & floral installation of my dreams, incorporating floral elements that I didn’t even know existed. The staff at Jimmy Duffy’s were incredible and so accommodating. Janelle from Janelle on Location made me feel beautiful, but more importantly, like me. Our amazing vendors allowed us to enjoy every second of our wedding day, and for that, we are forever grateful.

I have a handful of moments from our wedding day that I keep close to my heart, but one of my favorite moments was just after our ceremony ended. We had a minute or two to ourselves after the processional, and we held each other finally as husband and wife. My advice to other brides is to keep it simple and easy. Try not to overcomplicate and overthink. Oh and dance. Always dance under the stars with the one you love.

Classic + Elegant Pennsylvania Winter Wedding

Winter weddings seem to be full of seasonal magic, and this one has it in spades. I’m not just talking about the cozy, warm, and romantic vibe of the Cork Factory Hotel or the lush, wintery florals. It’s so much more than that, like that the Bride wore her mother’s veil and that the Groom walked down the aisle to a surprise performance of the “Game of Thrones” theme song. See all the pretty from Brianna Wilbur in The Vault!

From The Bride…To be perfectly honest, I had never pictured a winter wedding. But when my fiancé proposed at Christmas last year, I realized a one-year engagement brought us to my least favorite season. A quick Pinterest search was all it took to sell me on a fur stole, gorgeous winter florals, and some dark green long bridesmaids dresses.

Although I looked for him everywhere, I finally met The One on a dating website. I actually remember looking across the table at him on our first date thinking, “Could this be my husband?” Two and a half years later, he is. I think I love my now-husband about double what I did before the big day, if that’s possible.

We envisioned an elegant and classic affair, with very traditional details, from the invitations to the ceremony. I wanted to highlight winter while creating a cozy, warm, and romantic vibe. I imagined greens, creams, and blacks. The Cork Factory Hotel could not have been more perfect: once our guests arrived on Friday for the rehearsal, no one had to leave the hotel until after brunch on Sunday. The convenience for the guests was of utmost importance for us. The airy ballroom, chandeliers, and fireplace didn’t hurt, either.

It is so special to me that I wore my mom’s veil, which was perfectly preserved and absolutely gorgeous. The Silverwood Trio surprised my husband with the “Game of Thrones” theme song when he walked into the ceremony, making him laugh and diffusing some of his nerves. I cherish the memories I have of us reciting our personally written vows to each other and that special trip down the candle-lit aisle with my Dad.

The pinecone escort cards were one of my favorite details. Last summer we started collecting pinecones and glueing them to birch rounds. Painting each one and applying glitter was another endeavor entirely! We wanted little mementos of me and Ryan everywhere, from doors plastered with childhood photographs to our birdie guestbook and cake toppers. We made our wine-bottle table numbers and then gave them away in a musical-chairs-type game at the reception, a crowd favorite!

I didn’t even know I was a flower person until I found Sullivan Owen. It’s like lightning struck, and I became absolutely obsessed with her floral works of art. I can now spot one of her bouquets even before knowing it’s her design. I was bursting with excitement before they arrived on our wedding day, and when they did I was blown away. I will never forget those flowers.

My groom tapped my shoulder and said, “Can I steal you for a second?” He took me out to the terrace and slow danced with me, alone, away from the guests, to Nora Jones’s “Come Away with Me.” I will never forget resting my head on his chest, and feeling unbelievable, overwhelming love from friends, family, and my new husband. It is a perfect memory from a perfect day.

From Brianna Wilbur PhotographyBefore she snuck out to have a moment of prayer on one of the biggest days of their lives, 7 of her best girlfriends huddled around her & asked if they could pray for her. Tears quickly flowed & the words each girl muttered were some of the most sincere & genuine prayers a girl could ever bless another friend with. The day was filled with superb human beings & just as wonderful details. From her perfect gown & bridal details to the lush flowers, vintage decor, and ever so gorgeous Farm at Eagles Ridge…everything was perfect.

This wedding is for the bride who loves a modern, feminine twist on classic, timeless, elegance.
