Real Weddings: A Cozy Winter Wedding at Brandywine Manor House

 

IMG_0440

So, around now it’s easy to get tired of winter with its freezing temperatures and below negative wind chills, but this winter wedding will give you all the feels.  The Brandywine Manor House’s Manor Barn looks like it’s from a Rockwell painting with a little bit of snow on the ground. The details by Erin and Brandon made the perfect winter wedding-cozy Christmas themed leggings for the girls while they got ready, pinecone and greens boutineers for the men, and a stunning white rose, succulent, pinecone, and greens bouquet for the bride. The Manor Barn made a stunning rustic reception venue with its twinkling lights, sparkling chandeliers, exposed wooden beams, and hardwood floors. The rustic feel was complete with antlers and garland greens on wooden tree slices as centerpieces. This wedding almost makes us want winter to last forever!

Real Weddings: A Stunning Rustic Woodland Wedding at Blue Mountain Ski Lodge in PA

Briana and James’s wedding day was held at beautiful Blue Mountain Ski Lodge. As you can see from the photos, the views were amazing.  According to the photographer Catrina Carlson Photography, the weather was beautiful for all but the outside ceremony! As Briana was walking down the aisle towards her soon to be hubby, the floodgates opened. The heavy rain lasted for all of the 10 minute ceremony and ceased right at their first kiss!  The rain also resulted in some gorgeous rainbows.

The reception had the perfect combination of rustic and woodland elements.  The wedding cake looked like mountains dotted with trees on top of a wood slice.  The cake topper showed off the couple’s humorous side with the bride pulling the groom away from the World of Warcraft. The place cards were little wooden slices while the table arrangements were flowers, done by the bride’s mother, in jars wrapped with burlap and lace.

Real Weddings: A Rustic Wedding at Cecil Creek Farm in South Jersey Part Two

Michael and Carina’s rustic wedding is the epitome of farm rustic weddings. (Be sure to check out part one of this stunning wedding here!) Cecil Creek Farm was the perfect setting for an outside ceremony-guests and the bridal party took tractor trailers to the site while a guitar player played the processional music. Cecil Creek Farm was also the perfect venue for a rustic reception complete with a semi-naked wedding cake adorned with fresh flowers and potted succulents for wedding favors.
