Cairnwood Estate Wedding

Garden Weddings

Photos by:

Today’s wedding from Love Me Do Photography is the perfect breath of fresh air. Newlyweds Janelle and Dave planned much of their wedding around the elegance of their venue, the astoundingly gorgeous Cairnwood in Pennsylvania. Add a few Geronimo Balloons for a touch of whimsy, and you’ve got one winner of a wedding day!

From the bride, Janelle: Dave and I met at work, and we are both oncology nurses; therefore, we quickly realized the importance of love and family. Being together has been one of life’s greatest blessings, and we would love to share our wedding with you and other couples! Dave and I wanted our wedding to be timeless, romantic, and us! A lot of our inspiration was from other weddings featured on Ruffled! We both love vintage and romantic style weddings without the “typical” wedding cheese. Most of all, we wanted an intimate affair where we could openly and honestly celebrate our love.

We decided on Cairnwood because it had amazing flexibility. We were able to have gorgeous outdoor photos, outdoor ceremony and cocktail, intimate indoor dinner, and drinks and dancing in the library with an outdoor terrace! It is a beautiful wedding venue and most of our aesthetic was based on the vibe of the venue. In addition to the venue, many of our wedding vendors helped shape the aesthetic through their uniqueness and creativity. I adore all of our vendors, and they made the planning process easy and enjoyable!

For future brides, my advice is to follow your heart, stay true to yourselves as a couple, and do not listen to anyone’s negativity! Also, the week of the wedding forget all of the planning and relax with your soon to be husband! The week of the wedding and specifically, the rehearsal dinner and hours before the wedding, were the most special, serene, and memorable moments of our relationship. On the day of the wedding, relax and enjoy every special moment!

Rock Quarry Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Do we ever have a big chunk of pretty for you all! Stylist extraordinaire Erika of Vintage My Wedding put together this styled shoot inspired by all things quartz with touches of gold and blush pink. With photography by Love Is A Big Deal, how could they possibly go wrong? Keep an eye out for the amazing wedding cake!

gemstone inspired invitations

From the stylist, Erika: We knew we wanted to create something beautiful and awesome using natural elements. We wanted the shoot to be romantic and soft with an edgy feel. Most of our inspiration came from agate, precious stones, and metal. The hard edges and colors of those rocks mixed in with brass and gold elements were the perfect combination.

When scouting for a venue to bring all of our ideas to life we found the most amazing hidden rock quarry. The color of the water and the cut rock inside the cave was unbelievable! We gold leafed individual rocks, painted wood slabs to mimic agate, cut and wrapped handmade soaps that resembled rock slabs, and crafted a table number using gold painted twigs on a painted concrete chunk. In the end, the shoot turned out even more amazing than we could’ve dreamed.

Beauty and the Beast Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

The second we glanced upon this shoot from photographer Maria Lamb of Anthem Photography, it was love at first sight. There’s so very much beauty to behold, so imagine our delight when we realized that everything (yes, everything!) in the shoot was put together by the model herself? Continue on for some expert texture blending and incredible sunset portraits.

From the photographer, Maria of Anthem Photography: This engagement shoot was so wonderful. Brenna McGill (the “beauty” in all the pictures) stylized everything in the shoot. She made and put together everything from the cake to her dress that was made out of a bunch of tulle. She has wonderful talent and I feel so privileged that I was able to capture such an amazing themed day!
