Wedding at Bed & Breakfast in West Chester

Pennsylvania Wedding with Thoughtful DIY Elements

The main focus for Lauren & David’s wedding day was community. They have an amazing community of support in their friends and family and wanted to make sure that this element was included in their wedding.

Their ceremony was hosted at Lauren’s parent’s house in West Chester, PA. The setting was beautiful to begin with, but the fact that Lauren grew up there made her starting this new chapter of her life in the same spot all the more impactful and believe me, it had an impact on everyone!  When she walked out of the house on the way to the ceremony, we had to cut through the woods on a path that as a child she would walk on to get to the neighbors house. She got ready in her childhood bedroom with old posters on the wall. It is details like that you can’t fabricate. Sometimes the details that you don’t pay for are the ones that make the biggest mark on your day.

After the ceremony everyone headed into West Chester to the lovely Victorian Bed & Breakfast, Faunbrook. With lots of cute little nooks and crannies the space felt so homey which was a perfect accompaniment to their family focused day. The space felt like an extension of the family’s home.

The mix of friends and family coming together made the day so special, but the couple really made it their own with small touches spread throughout the day. Another great example is that the couple designed their own invitations, and loved their envelope liner so much that they asked the baker to replicate it on a cake!

A Styled Shoot with Pat Robinson at Terrain at Styers

This shoot goes down in the books for us. As we were planning and designing for this shoot, we just let our vision guide it. It wasn’t guided by particular dictates, merely our dream of what could be. Working with a team of crazy-talented, super collaborative vendors resulted in visual magic — and a shoot worthy of being published on Green Wedding Shoes!

Pat Robinson slayed the photography with his masterful way of capturing the natural light. He perfectly captured the details and the entire mood of the day.

Jess and Paige from We Are Wildflowers jumped right in and crafted an amazing greenery backdrop on site. They had the killer idea to make sure the backdrop was mobile so it could be used as both the ceremony backdrop as well as the sweetheart cake table backdrop. This is the perfect example of choosing a wow-factor to splurge on and then getting creative about how to maximize the impact — we totally geek out over that kind of thinking. We love getting working with new vendors during shoots because it gives us great insight into their work ethic, style, and personality, which they had in spades!

Meg of Nutmeg Design ran with our love of patterns. For inspiration, we gave her a patterned fabric swatch that we later made napkins out of for the shoot. She hand painted the same pattern onto a tier of the cake, then adorned the cake with her amazing sugar flowers (which tied in elements from the pattern in 3D form).

Looking over these pictures brings us such joy and gets us excited for the creative possibilities that lie ahead!
