Ridley Creek Mansion Wedding

June 19, 2013  •  1 Comment

Kristen and Andrew were married early in June at the Ridley Creek Mansion in Delaware County, Pa.  Kristen was really excited for her big day.  I mean, she was really, REALLY excited to say "I do".  We started the day inside the mansion's gorgeous bridal suite.  This space is one of the reasons why the Ridley Creek Mansion is one of my favorite venues to photograph in.

After the dress was on, we set out to grab a first look and bridal party photos on the amazing mansion grounds.  As avid hikers, working nature and the trees into the photos was very important to both Kristen and Andrew.

It was time to move inside and enjoy the reception with catering, including mac and cheese bar (!),  by Diverse Catering and entertainment by DJ Robert Sperring.  Kristen took an a ton of DIY projects to give her day a special touch, including mason jar centerpieces, suitcase card box, fingerprint tree guestbook, moss and twine monograms, bride and groom seat sings, "Just Married" sweetheart table marker, program fans, and the cake topper!
