Whimsy, romance, glamour, vintage charm — this wedding from Maria Mack Photography has it all. Maria and Michael’s wedding in Pennsylvania was everything they could hope for, including a reception space completely decked out in colorful ribbons and two incredibly stunning gowns for the bride. Thank you Buttercup and Elevee Events for beautiful design work on this day!

From the bride, Maria: We really wanted a Whimsical Vintage Glamour feel. We wanted it to be beautiful and romantic, while making sure it really showed our personalities and personal style. Our venue had a beautiful, rustic, natural landscape which we designed the rest of the wedding around. We didn’t have a specific color scheme – we wanted it to be colorful with a mix of color with elegant pops of glamour – hence the sequin details on our bridal party, glamourous second gown, and twinkle lights throughout the space. We used mismatched china, a beautiful designed sweetheart table with a chandelier, and had our entire reception pavilion draped with colorful ribbon.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Just stay true to your relationship and what best represents your love for each other. We wanted something different, memorable and fun that our guests would comment “This wedding is so YOU!”. We added some fun elements like the Villanova Acapella Group, Ice-cream cones and Lawn Games to keep things lighthearted and fun!
