Real Weddings: A Glamorous and Rustic Winter Wedding in Lancaster

Wow. After seeing this wedding at The Booking House, we fell in love with the venue and can see why Amy & Matt chose it for their big day.  The Booking House is a beautiful cigar warehouse, built in 1884 and restored in 2014, located in Manheim, Pennsylvania. This Lancaster County venue is full of historic character and rustic, but modern, charm.

Amy & Matt chose to have their ceremony at the venue in the Rizzardi Room. This room is the perfect place for a ceremony-full of rustic charm with wide plank flooring, exposed brick, and thick wooden beams yet glamorous with crystal chandeliers. The lanterns and greenery on the ground added to the charm.

One unique touch for their ceremony: instead of lighting a candle together to symbolize the joining of two families, they watered a tree together. How beautiful!

The gorgeous wedding invitations were simple and clean,  yet the gold added a glamorous glitzy touch.

How unique is this wedding program! We think the newspaper idea is so cute plus it gives a chance to tell guests how you met, how he proposed, and other sweet details.

Photographer Lisa Hornak did an incredible job of capturing every last detail. We love this ring shot on top of a vinyl LP. Creative and different!

The flowers were breath-taking.  The combination of white flowers and greenery is striking. We love how the boutonniere had a little pinecone detail for this winter wedding.

We are loving the lace details and back on this Paloma Blanca wedding gown.  The happy couple took full advantage of the location near train tracks for some gorgeous and interesting shots.

This couple put their first dance lyrics on their wedding cake made by The Bake Works in Northfield, New Jersey. We are loving this creative wedding cake idea and the ideas are endless: put your first dance lyrics, wedding vows, favorite poem, favorite Bible verse, or anything else that means something to you two.

This custom watercolor wedding invite suite by local Etsy seller The Cultured Coop (she’s from Cape May Courthouse, New Jersey) is the definition of summer. With seashells and sea horses adorning the invitation and gorgeous shades of blue throughout the stationery, this just evokes images of a beachside ceremony with the smell of saltwater in the air.
