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.
