Erin and Stephen’s wedding at Linden Row Inn was elegant, timeless and simply beautiful! When deciding what venue they were going to choose, they wanted something small and intimate. Because they really wanted an outdoor venue that would allow them to see the stars, they chose the gorgeous setting of Linden Row Inn! They provide the perfect blank canvas which really allows couples to curate their ideal wedding day.
The day started out beautifully. Although the weather was questionable, it ended up staying nice throughout the wedding. In regards to details, Erin picked the most gorgeous invitation suite by Minted that suited their wedding theme perfectly. Since photographing details is one of my favorite parts, I especially loved when the colors went together as beautifully as the sage, gold, and white. Incorporating the florals (by Wedding by Vogue) into the detail shots gave them that elegant touch that Erin and Stephen were looking for on their wedding day.
One of the most personal details was her mom’s pearl bracelet that she borrowed. Pearls are such a timeless piece of jewelry and incorporating them in her details added perfectly to her theme. Her dress (by Made With Love from Annaliese Bridal) had just the right amount of detail and was the perfect silhouette for her. Her bridal look was completed hair and makeup (by Jordan Simpson) As a whole, Erin looked stunning.
Stephen and his groomsmen wore dashing blue suits with champagne-colored ties and bow ties. Stephen’s boutonnière was made from a single white rose and sage greenery which complemented his suit.
Naturally, Erin was just as nervous as any bride. But as soon as Erin saw Stephen, her nerves went away. Twinkling string lights hung above the ceremony site and a flourishing floral arrangement adorned their arbor.
Erin’s favorite parts of their wedding day were exchanging their vows and the moments right after they were married. Soaking in a few moments after a ceremony is always a great choice. Doing this ended up being one of Erin and Stephen’s favorite moments of their day.
We took a lot of romantic photos after the ceremony. A quick stroll around the proper offered many scenic options to choose from. I especially loved all of the greenery and the beautiful shot of the newly married couple on the grand steps.
I was blown away by how amazing everyone looked. The blue suits complemented the green and pink dresses and suit on the bridesmaid side so well.
The reception was filled with good food, drinks, and dancing under the stars! They shared their first dance to “I’m With You” by Vance Joy. The rest of the evening was spent surrounded by family, friends, and good times. When you have such an intimate venue like Erin and Stephen, you can easily surround yourself with everyone you love. Each guest was able to go home with the cutest little macaroons in a box tied with a gold ribbon. By the end of the night, Erin and Stephen were so happy about how everything had gone.
Like many couples, they were so glad the planning and preparation part was over, but they would not change a single thing if they had to do it again. The planning process was definitely made easier with their planner, but planning a wedding is hard nonetheless! Now, they are excited to start new adventures and to push each other to be the best they can be.
Erin and Stephen loved looking back at their photos and felt Chelsea Schmidt Photography captured the intimate moments of their day in the way they imagined. They will forever be able to look back at their wedding photos and remember their intimate, timeless, and classic wedding day and relive those memories.
Congratulations Erin and Stephen! I wish a lifetime of new adventures for both of you.
