Eat Drink & Be Married

Dan and I had the honor of attending two weddings in the past couple months that were each lovely in their own ways. The first wedding Dan was pretty excited about because the bride and groom asked if he could lend his truck to the reception's decor. But before we get to that, let's check out the ceremony:

The wedding was held in the bride's parent's back yard and they built the "stage" out of pallets. A lovely blue desk stood behind them to hold their ceremony paraphernalia and the ring bearer held a sign that said "Here comes the bride." When he walked back down after the ceremony he flipped it around and it read "And they lived happily ever after." It was adorable.

A cocktail hour was held in the front of the house and this is what made Dan happy: seeing his truck being put to good use. They set up the bed of the truck to hold a vintage trunk filled with Starbuck's Frappuccino bottles containing iced coffee and tea.

The reception was held at a country club five minutes down the road and unfortunately I took no photos -boo- but I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the candy bar! Our place cards were actually mason jars with tags showing each couple's name and table number. The jar then doubled as your favor and everyone was encouraged to fill them with sweets! Sweet.

Wedding #2 was held in Lambertville of all places (same town we went to for our anniversary) so it was a nice surprise when we got the invitation and saw it was at a place we've been wanting to go to for a while! The Inn at Lambertville Station is right on the water that separates Lambertville from New Hope, Pennsylvania.

This historical inn was chock full of vintage charm and I instantly fell in love with the portrait collage in the lobby.

I loved this lamp too. The mix of modern amongst all the old-school was very smart.

Turns out they set of fireworks every Friday night over this river and it just so happens their wedding was on a Friday. 
We had the best seat in the house!

The couple are avid rock climbers and their gorgeous traditional cake had the perfect quirky bride and groom "toppers."

All in all they were two different yet utterly lovely weddings full of personal touches and lots of love.
