A Wedding at Graeme Park: Laura & Cory

Laura and Cory were married at Graeme Park during a rainy day in May. Despite the weather, they chose to go ahead with their outdoor ceremony - fortunately the rain held off to a light drizzle for most of the time.

After cocktails under an open tent, guests proceeded to the large Open Aire Affairs wedding tent on the property. 

After being greeted by fun orange, lime green, and white pom poms hanging at the entrance, they found their seating assignments on these adorable sliced logs (what a great way to make use of all those fallen limbs from earlier this year!)

Everyone was organized alphabetically to make it easy to find their assignment.

The tables were set with simple white and chocolate (more on that later) linens, and decorated with lime green lanterns with orange flowers and coffee beans on mirrored circles to pick up the brown. What you can't tell in these photos, is that each lantern had a few battery operated candles hidden down inside, so as it got dark they glowed - so pretty.

So, back to the chocolate - see those little white favor boxes with the orange ribbons? Each one contained three sweet heart-shaped truffles hand-crafted by the bride, her father and their family - as it turns out, the father-of-the-bride was a former employee of one of Pennsylvania's best-loved and most well-known chocolate-makers! The table numbers were also made from bits of Sycamore wood.

Dressing up the sides of the tent were these cute and simple tin cans strung up with twine and holding an assortment of orange flowers.

The cake was an elegant and simple white and brown affair with ribbon, flowers, and a traditional, but modern looking topper.

At the end of the evening, the couple's friends and family lined the walk way to send them off in the rain with sparklers.

Congratulations Laura and Cory and thank you for choosing Graeme Park to start your life together.
