From the minute I met Erin and Kane about 2 years ago, I knew that their Brandywine Manor House wedding was going to be a fun one. Their wedding fell on the first of October. It was a drizzly and chilly day. The weather was not going to bring anyone down. Everyone was cheerful and excited.
Everything took place at the amazing Brandywine Manor House. The Brandywine Manor House really does a great job accommodating all types of weddings. They have great bridal suites for both the girls and guys to get ready in. The mood in the getting ready rooms was relaxed and fun. The girls had already gotten their hair and makeup done at Emily Alice Salon in West Chester. Erin rocked pink hair on her wedding day which just perfectly matched her bubbly personality. I loved the colors and different dress styles that the girls wore. Their bouquets were lovely pastel florals by Elaine’s Flowers.
The ceremony took place in the barn. The wedding was officiated by Erin’s grandfather, and both of her parents walked her down the aisle. Erin and Kane wrote their own sweet vows together. It was a beautiful ceremony that had many crying tears of joy.
After the ceremony, the guests ventured below the barn for the cocktail hour while we took some time for photos. Family formals took place in the barn to keep everyone warm and dry. Erin and Kane had no problem venturing into the drizzle for their portraits. It really was just misty, which made for some beautiful moody photos.
Everyone was welcomed back into the barn for the reception. The fireplace was lit and string lights twinkled through the rafters. It was the perfect ambiance for a cool fall day. Erin put together all of the center pieces and decor herself. Toasts were made and dinner was served. Erin and Kane chose upscale barbecue by Hess Barbecue Catering for dinner. It was the perfect comfort food and everyone loved it. Another twist on traditional, Erin and Kane chose to serve apple cider donuts from Northbrook Farms as their main dessert with a small cake to cut at the top tier. Who doesn’t love a cider donut!
After dinner everyone was excited to dance! Kane’s father was the leader of the band RK3. Erin’s sister, Laura sang a few special songs during the night as well, including Erin and Kane’s first dance. Having their family incorporated into the wedding was very important to Erin and Kane. It really made the wedding such a fun family affair. This was such a wonderful wedding to be a part of and I loved being able to capture it for Erin, Kane, and their families.
