A Wedding at Graeme Park: Kathy & Bob

Kathy and Bob selected the peaceful area near the waterfall at Graeme Park as the site for their ceremony with the guests facing towards the pond and stream.

The cocktail hour was held in the field between the 18th century stone farmhouse and the 19th century Pennsylvania bank barn, providing lovely views of both for their guests to enjoy, along with  appetizers, including sliders and fried mozzarella prepared on the spot by Joey G's Catering of Newtown, scallops wrapped in bacon, grilled vegetables, and fresh fruit.

Inside the Open Aire Affairs wedding tent was decorated in pale gray and sunny yellow with paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling, simple candle lantern centerpieces and table numbers anchored with corks from Barefoot Wines for a beachy vibe.

In addition to the menu of spring mix salad, chicken with spinach and roasted red peppers, London broil, mac and cheese, roasted potatoes, asparagus, and mushrooms with caramelized onions, Joey G's also baked and decorated the traditional, two layer wedding cake. The dessert menu also included his signature cheesecake pops dipped in dark chocolate. 

Congratulations Kathy and Bob and thanks for choosing Graeme Park.

A Wedding at Graeme Park: Carley & Ron

Carley and Ron were the first couple in our triple crown Memorial Day Weekend wedding marathon. The chose the back of the Keith House at Graeme Park for their ceremony site and opted for bench seating rather than individual chairs.

After the ceremony, they had cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, including cheese and crackers, shrimp, and pita with various dipping options, in front of the 19th century barn.

The buffet style meal was catered by McCaffrey's Food Market and included chicken Francaise, flank steak, ziti in vodka sauce, mashed potatoes, grilled vegetables, and salads.

The Open Aire Affairs wedding tent was decorated in classic white linens, burlap runners and colorful, but casual flowers in burlap and lace decorated mason jars.

The cupcakes and a small wedding cake were done by The Sweet Circle

A Wedding at Graeme Park: Lauren & Dave

Lauren and Dave kicked off wedding season at Graeme Park when they tied the knot here last weekend. After a ceremony under their custom made wedding arch, guests enjoyed cocktails and hors oeuvres in the courtyard in front of the 19th century barn.

The Open Aire Affairs wedding tent was decorated with classic linens, childhood photos of the bride and groom, burlap runners and silk flowers, arranged by the bride, which made nice keepsakes for guests to take home.

The buffet dinner was prepared by Catering by Rich and included Caesar salad, ziti Florentine, green bean almondine, roasted potatoes, and sliced roast beef.

One of the cutest ideas from the evening was the "guest book" which included wooden hearts for guests to sign and drop into a frame to create a collage.

The traditional wedding cake featured a personalized topper representing the couple and their dogs.
