Two Lauxmont Farms Weddings

Saturday was a beautiful, but windy day for Liz and Luke's wedding at the Pretty Pastures of Lauxmont Farms.

Look how perfectly this bridesmaid's dress matches the color of the skies.......

After 2 times setting up the canopy, and one time of picking it up and re-assembling it with the help of the Groom, Groomsmen, and a very helpful farm hand (thank you-thank you!) who quickly found 4 stakes as tall as I am, a sledge hammer and rope-we finally got it to stay up. The wind up on that hill finally calmed down by wedding time. Thankfully the Bride never knew the stressful time we had.

The most awesome thing about Pretty Pastures is that the sound of the harp could be heard all the way around the farm. It was so beautiful, as was Liz, the Bride. For once, I was able to catch a photo of the Bride and Groom after the ceremony. Thanks guys!

Sunday's wedding was back up at Lauxmont Farms at the Sunken Garden, then over to the Rotunda for the reception. Both weddings had the same color dresses: beautiful sky blue. I wasn't able to get a picture of the couple; but here are some shots of the flowers and reception details. Bridesmaids Bouquets were South American Blue Hydrangea, white Spray Roses and a tiny bit of Million Star Gypsophilia.

Melissa, the Bride chose ivory Roses with fragrant pearl-studded Stephanotis

Groomsmens boutts. were light blue Bella Delphinium and Bear Grass.

Renee of Bella Manse Artful Wedding Cakes did amazing work on this blue wedding cake : a beautiful decorative focal point in the Rotuda.

The vases were an identical match to the striped ceiling of the Rotunda. Believe it or not, that was not intentional.

I had the pleasure of working with the girls of EPN. (Event Planning Network) from the Harrisburg Area.
Sisters Tina and Melissa make a great team of hard working planners. They say they are best friends and you can tell that's the truth! They laugh at each other and work as hard as men, lugging heavy cases of beverages and ice up to the pool area while taking care of the bridal party and reception details all at the same time. Great job girls!

***Next week's wedding of Gena and Andy features lots and lots of lavendar and green Roses.
