Savannah and Jim were married on September 3rd and it was such a fun wedding to be a part of. I loved this wedding because it took place at Savannah's parents house in Chester Springs, PA. I have done outdoor weddings in the past, but this was my first wedding where the bride got married at her family house. However this was not a typical backyard wedding. The house was beautifully decorated, and was the perfect setting for this love story.
Savannah and Jim had a small, intimate wedding of around 80 guests. Their color scheme was white, pink, burgundy, and gold. Savannah's two sisters and best friend served as bridesmaids.
This wedding was a mix of upscale elegance and DIY. The bride, with the help of her mom and sisters, made her cake and all of her flowers!
My favorite memory of this day was the ceremony. The weather was perfect, and Savannah and Jim said their vows outside on Savannah's parents lawn. However the yard was transformed into an upscale ceremony area. Chivari style chairs were brought in, and the couple had a chuppah made that was adorned with florals. I helped scatter flower petals into a design for Savannah to walk down. They had an unplugged ceremony (which I love), and as they were announced as 'Mr. and Mrs.', guests popped confetti poppers.
After the ceremony guests walked over to another area for cocktail hour and the reception. This area is typically used as the driveway, but again, was transformed into a beautiful wedding venue. Savannah's parents had a large tent brought in, and rented tables, chairs, linens, and table wear.
Another great memory from this wedding was the two pinata's that Savannah and Jim had at their wedding. The first pinata was for the kids, and was filled with candy. The second was an 'adults only' pinata, filled with mini bottles of alcohol! Everyone had a ton of fun trying to burst open the pinatas!
The rest of the night was filled with dancing and laughter!
