In the world of dream weddings, I think this Terrain wedding might take the cake for me. Andrew & Elaina planned an intimate day for fewer than 100 of their closest friends and family that was surely an event to remember. The day started with Elaina opening a letter & gift from Andrew (which actually contained multiple sealed letters intended to be opened on different milestones (ie. the first major fight, on the day of the birth of their first born, etc.)... cue the waterworks, right!? The ceremony at St Thomas of Villanova was intimate and so perfect, with personal stories highlighting their love and affection for each other, and so many laughs! Elaina has a laugh that is truly contagious and I loved capturing her different expressions throughout the day; so much joy! Following the ceremony, guests headed over to Terrain for a farm to table style reception that was my definition of perfection. I loved the farm style banquet tables meant for creating a true family setting which allowed everyone could talk and share in the magic of the day.
We are very organic, earth-conscious people with a great appreciation for good food, good wine and good friends. We love the outdoors and wanted our day to represent us in an elegant, natural and rustic manner.
Work together. It's the groom's day as much as it is the bride's and you are going to need all the help you can get to pull this whole thing off. It will mean more to both of you to host your friends and family if you both spent a ton of time working on the overall theme as well as the details.
