Lindsey and Aaron’s Enchanting Spring Wedding at Terrain by Mary + Roy
Terrain was the perfect backdrop to Lindsey and Aaron’s lovely Spring wedding, with it’s rustic nature and oh-so-dreamy landscape. The rustic feel of Terrain made this wedding feel like a fanciful dream come true! I love a bride who embraces color, and all the fuchsia details were perfect, from the gorgeous bridesmaids dresses to the beautiful blooms! Especially the subtle hint of fuchsia in Lindsey’s bouquet, crafted beautifully by Quill’s Bunches. If the beautiful color palette doesn’t make you fall in love with this wedding, then wait until you see the unbelievably amazing Rice Krispies wedding cake by Jes-Made Bakery, it’ll have you reconsider choosing a traditional wedding cake! Lindsey and Aaron managed to throw a casual, yet enchanting ceremony—which was captured well by the beloved photographers, Mary + Roy. Collectively, the amount of detail that went into this wedding is overwhelmingly impressive! Get to know Lindsey and Aaron through these photographs, they are a delightful couple.
From the Bride: My husband, Aaron, and I met while I was finishing pharmacy school in Pittsburgh, PA. He had just moved back to his hometown after living in upstate New York for a few years. One of my best friends and I went to a bar for a few drinks on a Friday night, and she started talking to someone she knew. This someone happened to be one of Aaron’s best friends. Aaron was with him, and after numerous nudges to get my friend to introduce me to the cute boy, Aaron and I met. We spent the rest of that evening together and went on our first date the following week. Despite what people say, you really can meet your future husband in a bar!
It is nearly impossible to surprise me, and Aaron knows that. He had gone on several secret “errands” the weeks leading up to his proposal. He knew that any grand gesture would blow the surprise and that I knew it was coming. Aaron proposed in our Center City apartment on a snowy afternoon in January. I was thrilled! We spent the rest of the day calling friends and family and celebrating.
We held both our ceremony and reception at Terrain at Styers in Glen Mills, PA. Once we visited and saw the grounds, I knew we had to get married there! Terrain was inspiration itself for the wedding! It is beyond gorgeous. I liked the theme of a garden party, so our ceremony was decorated with mason jars filled with flowers lining the aisle and on cocktail tables. The centerpieces at the reception were flower boxes overflowing with coral peonies. I love antique skeleton keys, so we decided to make our escort cards and favors skeleton key bottle openers. We really enjoy a great beer, so the bar featured several of our favorite craft beers. We had a “his” favorite drink (an old-fashioned) and “her” favorite drink (pinot grigio). Also, Aaron and I aren’t the biggest fans of traditional cake, so we decided to have a Rice Krispie treat cake. It was absolutely adorable and delicious!
By far, my favorite moment of the big day was being introduced into our reception as husband and wife. All of our closest friends and family stood and cheered for what seemed like forever! I was so humbled and felt so loved by everyone in that room. It was a truly special moment.
My advice for brides-to-be for wedding planning is to always remember what you’re planning for. With all the deadlines and research finding the perfect vendors or prettiest bridesmaid dresses, it is easy to forget how amazing it is that you’re getting married and found the love of your life! I definitely got stressed throughout the process, but the day turned out absolutely perfect and your day will too!
