Real Weddings: A Glamorous and Rustic Winter Wedding in Lancaster Part Two



The Booking House is one of those wedding venues where everything about it seems to make for a perfect wedding day, from the ceremony to the reception.  With the twinkling lights, original wide plank flooring, exposed brick, and thick wooden beams this venue is both rustic and modern at the same time.

Amy & Matt’s reception is divine. Between the twinkling lights, the large green and white floral arrangements, and the gold candles, each table was both rustic and glamorous.


The head table is to die for! With greenery and lanterns covering the head table, the sweetheart table was full of romance for the happy couple.

We love this idea for place settings. Each guest was told to look for their “face” (photo of them) and the back had their table number. Love!

The food! Cookie bars and donut bars! Yes, those are maple and bacon covered donuts from Duck Donuts. Such a fun idea!


We are in love with this wedding cake. Simple but pure perfection. The pinecone bride and groom make the perfect winter wedding cake toppers. The greenery provides a simple and classic touch.

Real Weddings: A Great Gatsby Inspired Wedding in Cape May Courthouse Part Two

“I love her and that’s the beginning and end of everything.”

— F. Scott Fitzgerald

Kevin & Veronica’s wedding was quite the homage to the Roaring 20’s.  Their wedding was clearly inspired by The Great Gatsby with décor like a majestic ice sculpture, a classic black, gold, and ivory color palette, and larger-than-life floral installations.









From top to bottom: (1) The couple pouring a champagne tower. (2) We are loving this champagne tower-such an amazing way to start off a champagne toast. (3) & (4) The amazing head table floral centerpieces. (5) An ice sculpture with the new couple’s last name. (6) The gorgeous wedding cake-gold and white complete with feather boas and pearls. (7) The Gatsby-inspired wedding stationery. (8) A reception sign with the famous Gatsby quote “I love her and that’s the beginning and end of everything.”

Real Weddings: A Great Gatsby Inspired Wedding in Cape May Courthouse, New Jersey

“He looked at her the way all women want to be looked at by a man.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

There’s something so romantic about the Gatsby era. The Roaring 20’s were known for glamour-gold and glitz were everywhere. Black and gold Art Deco patterns were everywhere. And, of course, champagne and alcohol were a huge focus for the flappers.

Kevin & Veronica’s Gatsby inspired wedding is everything. The vintage touches were everywhere.












From top to bottom: (1) The stunning bridesmaid dressses. (2) The gorgeous bridal party-love the hairpieces and pearls. (3) The bridal party with personalized vintage flasks. (4) Monogrammed whiskey decanters as bridal party gifts. (5) A champagne display (6) An Art Deco sign welcomed guests to the ceremony. (7) The couple decorated the ceremony chairs with vintage touches like pearls. (8) We are loving the back of this wedding gown. (9) The gorgeous couple outside of the Abbie Holmes Estate. (10) The couple honored their dog by placing a photo of their pet in her bridal bouquet and in the cufflinks.
