Max & Adele at Brushwood Farms

Anyone who meets Adele is in for a treat! She’s a whirlwind of color, radiating happiness and joy and we liken her to a human disco ball. Or pinata. Or anything else super fun and awesome. And Max? He’s the perfect complement to her. A little quieter, a little more laid-back…Max was the picture of a supportive groom-to-be during our planning process! And boy did we plan! Max and Adele were celebrating with almost 400 of their nearest and dearest on Max’s family horse farm in Chester County, PA. We planned for beautiful sailcloth tents and giant disco balls (kind of a running theme here) and beautiful, classic details for this anything but boring couple.

Adele brought the pizazz this rainy weekend needed. We brought our back-up plans and our rain boots. It was a messy day but nothing could wipe that gigantic smile from our bride’s face. I mean, go check out her shoes! How could you not smile?

We held their ceremony in the same spot, right out front of the horse stables, overlooking the fields. We added a tent and the show went on! We moved our hundreds of guests to the turnout shed for cocktails and then marched them with umbrellas up to the dinner tent. It may have been raining and windy outside but the mood inside was {insert fire emoji here|. From the first minute to the last song of the after-party, this crowd went for it! Amazing speeches, a sprinkle-filled wedding cake, dancing on the tables, a starry night TEQUILA TENT…it was a serious party! Oh wait…a surprise unicorn showed up! Seriously, go check out this amazing day!

Cassandra & Steve at Jasna Polana

We're so excited to bring you all of 2016's weddings! Since we began our transition from Bottle Pop to Shannon Wellington Weddings, we've kept all of these beauties under wraps...until now!

What better way to spend Valentine’s weekend than at a lovely wedding at a jaw-droppingly beautiful estate? We were thrilled to act as coordinators at Cassandra and Steve’s wedding this winter in Princeton at TPC Jasna Polana. The venue is a stunning estate belonging to the Johnson and Johnson family and was built as a country house for a Mrs. Johnson sometime in the 1970’s. Now, it’s a private golf club and wedding venue. While the building and grounds are impeccably kept, since it was so cold, we spent most of our time in the atrium. With floor to ceiling windows, it really was the best possible scenario for a winter wedding.

We worked with Cassandra and Steve in the months leading up to their wedding and were so excited to see all of the details come into place. We loved working with photographer Lauren Fair and we so appreciate these gorgeous photos.

Cassandra and her bridesmaids were downright stunning in their beaded gowns and mismatched bridesmaid dresses.  Sarah from Allium Design kept the florals simple yet lush with green garlands and wintery branches. We infused candlelight everywhere and the effect was a perfect winter mix.

Even though it was the coldest day of the year, there was no snow in the forecast. But right after their ceremony, the two headed outside for some sunset photos and it began to snow the daintiest little flakes. Talk about picture perfect wedding photos!

We loved getting to do a little destination type wedding, even if that destination was only an hour away from Philadelphia. Princeton is the cutest Ivy league town and this wedding was the perfect fit.
