A Pennsylvania Fall Wedding

Mar 5 2013

Jesse and Krystal’s gorgeous fall wedding in Pennsylvania is sated with elegance. From their warm and gentle color scheme of champagne, gold and ivory, to the decor and personal touches, every detail is pure eye candy. Looking amazing … Krystal wore a Sottero and Midgley’s Gracie gown. For a stylish and seasonal look for the outdoor shots, the bridesmaids wore pale pink cardigans while Krystal wore a matching sequined cardigan.

For their invitation suite, Jesse and Krystal chose the Royal Emblem design–personalized in their wedding colors. Simply gorgeous–from the program and menu card, to the pocket invite and inserts, to all the vellum and labels. Enjoy as our beautiful brides shares highlights, advice and wedding day details!

Elegant Details …

The church was timeless with stone walls, high painted ceilings, and columns that we adorned with a lot of flowers for the ceremony, a happily ever after sign and a monogrammed pumpkin for fall flair. The Programs were handed out in a basket marked with the couple’s new last name. Guests were welcomed into the ballroom with tall orchid center pieces, menus held by four corks tied with gold ribbon, chap stick favors which read “Happily Ever After Starts Here” and adorned with gold and ivory berries. The head table was lined with votives wrapped in gold ribbon as well as: miniature vases with hydrangeas and roses (and later the wedding parties bouquets), candelabras and draping flower arrangements at each end, gold charger plates, and a back drop {hand made by the bride} of fabric frill flower.

Advice I’d like to give:

Think about your guests and make the wedding a fun and enjoyable evening  for them. We wanted our guests to experience a wedding that was beautiful and classy but we also wanted our guests to be comfortable and happy. We tried our best to make travels and accommodations convenient and the atmosphere fun for our guests all while having the wedding that fit our style and personalities.

Also, I am glad we put a lot of time and thought into all of our wedding stationery. It was truly exciting to send out the invites and then get sincere complements from everyone! Everyone was really impressed.

Vendor Shout Outs


Since a co-worker had used hot metal studios to photograph her wedding, when Jesse and I were only dating, we both enjoyed looking at their blog. Their pictures are so fresh, creative, and effortless. After we booked our church and reception venue, the first vendor we called was Hot Metal Studio. Jonathan and Tiff are both super sweet people and amazing photographersVisit hot metal studio to see more of Krystal and Jesse’s wedding photos.

Pictory Productions 

Our videographer, Megan Bowers was perfect! I had so much trouble finding the perfect videographer for us. While calling around, one local videographer, whose services were not the product we were hoping for, gave me the name a young videographer just starting her business in the area. I was beyond excited when I found Megan’s website. I was so in love with her videos! She makes upbeat 5 minute films that highlight the day set to music. She is so interested in her clients and always asked us what we wanted every step of the way. I’ve not seen any wedding videos like hers and I could not be happier that I have that memory forever. Watch Krystal and Jesse’s wedding video here. You should. It’s super cute!

We really liked the Royal Emblem Pocket Invitation online. I loved that you could request a sample of a particular style you like and then also able to get a color that we liked too. We got the samples in the mail and fell in love. The samples got us and we ordered all of the little extras that came with our invitation. The invitations really set the tone for our wedding and went with our vision of our wedding day. They were classy and elegant, with simple colors, but a lot of style.

We also put stickers with our engagement pictures on all of our seating cards and round emblem stickers were placed on all of our to go cookie boxes from our cookie table. After our wedding we got gorgeous thank you’s. It was easy to design the stationery on your website and Customer Care was awesome! We were so happy with MagnetStreet because of the ability to literally customize everything.
