The Show Must Go On…

Picture-7

This outdoor, Saturday afternoon, wedding began with frantic calls for a plan B and even a plan C. It was a hot, humid June week that had been giving forecasters problems all week. One day it would storm with hail and winds over 50mph, the next would be a cool spring-like day in the 70’s and the next would be unbearable heat over 95 degrees.

The bride, Erica had always envisioned an outdoor wedding in her parent’s backyard, where she grew up and had endless memories.  She knew as soon as the wedding planning began, she would be getting married under the weeping willow trees that boarder a small creek in her backyard. She was willing to take her chances against mother nature.

She made the right decision. The morning of the wedding, it looked like rain from the start, however everything stayed dry. Until…2pm it began to rain heavily and did not look as if it was going to let up. As guests began to arrive to the house, the rain slowed down and the team of JDK catering had each and every one of their employees drying as many chairs as possible so that everything could go on as planned. They did a great job to keep the show rolling.

As the ceremony began, a rainbow filled the sky and the sun broke through the clouds. It truly was an amazing yet unexpected moment that you simply could not ever plan for.

After the ceremony came a social hour full of creative h’orderves from JDK and wine pairing. Then came the served dinner portion of the evening by JDK which was delicious grilled chicken with pasta and vegetables.

Adam Skuba of Skuba Entertainment kicked off the night from behind the DJ booth and got everyone on the dance floor. Another big hit was the photo booth located behind the reception tent that had a long line all night and everyone was full of laughs after viewing.

A “Ragged Edge” Wedding

Ragged Edge Inn - 40' Wide Gable End Frame Tent

Photo credit to Martha Buchanan Designs

The Cosentino wedding was recently held at The Inn at Ragged Edge in Chambersburg. Taia’s (bride) first concern was how she could transform their property into a tented event, constructed to their custom needs. Taia was full of great ideas, which included planning the layout of the tents to the swatch colors matching the lighting. She was on top of every decision to be made under short deadlines.

 

Cake by "A Matter of Taste"

The photographer, Martha Buchanan, was able to capture the true emotion of the bride and groom before and during the wedding. The ceremony was held on the back patio of the bed and breakfast property which allowed for Martha to capture beautiful photos from the master bedroom balcony. It created a birds-eye perspective to their wedding that was truly unique in so many ways. Rather then just focusing on the couple themselves, she was able to provide views of  the colorful property as well as each party’s family in line to congratulate the newlyweds.

The couple utilized many local resources when it came to incorporating other key players’ services for their special day. They enlisted a family friend for the catering, and their cake design,  ”A Matter of Taste“, featured hand-crafted and painted orchids. A Local Brewery, Roy Pitz Brewing Company provided a variety of specialty beers, contributing even more to the wedding’s “local flavor”.

Rainy Day Wedding in York

Lighting provided by Production Express

When it comes to a wedding, everyone has their own ideas and opinions. The bride has dreamed about this day her entire life. Some dream of a large outdoor ceremony surrounded by nature while others envision an indoor wedding free from the elements.  When considering the two options, the first thing people typically ask themselves about an outdoor wedding is, WHAT IF IT RAINS?

The Lanpher wedding was one of those days, a perfect location in York with a beautiful backyard and perfect amount space for a large scale wedding, however mother nature had other plans. The rain began in the early morning and it looked as if it wasn’t going to let up until the next day. However, the forecasters were wrong and the rain luckily ended about an hour before guests began arriving. Everything turned out great for a truly memorable wedding as you can see from Atlanta based photographer Graham Scobey. Scobey Photography frequents the east coast between Atlanta and Boston during a typical bridal season and was able to capture every aspect of this unforgettable wedding.

 

Lighting provided by Production Express

The owner of York Blue Moon, Darrel, was the caterer who provided mouth-watering entrees and appetizers. As you can see from the photos, the lighting by Production Express was some of the most elaborate to be constructed under a tent. It really put this wedding reception over the top with elegance and originality.

 

60x100 Pole Tent after the rain cleared

 

Typically, the tent rental company complete the tent install 2 days in advance (depending on availability) in order to have other partners decorate the inside of the tent and make any necessary changes. This wedding worked out great with the 2 day cushion because of the inclement weather.
