Stan Hywet Garden Wedding

Kelsey and David were the perfect match according to a site for romantic relationships and they knew the second they met that they had something special. They were both passionate about travel and were active runners, and after just a few weeks, the two were absolutely inseparable. There was no doubt in their minds they were meant to share a life together.

David proposed to Kelsey on a hike with two of their great friends and puppy in tow. As a couple that relishes in being outside, David knew a hike from about an hour outside of Arlington would be the ideal location for this extraordinary moment. At a beautiful state park surrounded by awe inspiring scenery, David asked Kelsey to spend the rest of his life with him.  An outdoor wedding was a natural fit and the couple quickly and easily settled on a Stan Hywet Garden wedding.  On the stunning grounds of the regal mansion, David and Kelsey chose an enchanting backdrop surrounded by nature.

Every part of their wedding ceremony had a personal touch that was designed to enhance the emotional beauty of the ceremony. Kelsey’s mom’s lace from her own wedding dress encapsulated the bridal bouquet. Dave’s mom, who passed away 5-years ago, had a rose placed at her seat for the wedding.   The couple was overjoyed when, at the end of the ceremony, tears from heaven misted down in the form of a light rain.

A navy and light pink color palette was chosen for the wedding, with an obvious theme for the two lovebirds: travel. Designed to be cheerful, lively, and warm-hearted, their wedding included all of their family and closest friends, seated at tables with city signs that were made and chosen by the two passionate travelers.

Kelsey’s dress, romantic and elegant in nature, was a big spectacle with a layered and flowy touch. The top included a sweetheart neckline, chosen to complement the layout of the Stan Hywet venue.  For her flowers, Kelsey chose an array of old fashioned garden roses and astilbe.
