It’s all in the details- Dana & Stephen’s Stock Manor Wedding

10012871_10153432049002259_1417739767247197158_oI love hearing about the details when talking with our couples.  It’s amazing to see things come to life but when couples blow me away, exceeding my expectations.. well you gotta blog about it!

Dana, an up and coming event planner, knew the day she married Stephen was going to be filled with beautiful flowers, a Nautica meets Hampton style decor, and Jimmy Choos.  The couple chose to get ready in a downtown Harrisburg hotel, close to their first meeting/date spot before heading to their ceremony location at Stock’s Manor in Mechanicsburg.
A few minutes prior to the ceremony, the wind started to kick up, the skies turning dark, and thunder was heard in the distance. Fearful if the outdoor ceremony would happen, Dana and her attendants arrived exactly at 4pm. The couple wed in the stone ruin area which Dana designed a vintage feel by adding large white frames and huge flower displays to the rustic setting. Just as the couple shared their first kiss, the rain drops started to fall.
Dana created a magical reception space in the enclosed pavilion attached to the classic farm house with hundreds of candles and a soft sunset glow of up-lighting.  The room smelled of spring which was loaded with fresh flowers and beautiful candelabras. The cake was designed with modern textures on each layer in classic white which melted in your mouth. The end of the evening brought the couple to the middle of the dance floor with remaining guests circling around, hand in hand.  Such a beautiful event for a gorgeous couple!
