Plaid Inspiration for a Mountain Wedding
From Lindsay Eileen Photography: With the upcoming Christmas holiday, we were instantly drawn to the idea of a plaid wedding. Our hosting venue was a beautiful, quiet farm tucked away in the mountains of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, and notably, it is the same place where my husband and I tied the knot a few years earlier. Our models, Kylie and Billy, are a real-life married who are absolutely adorable and crazy-in-love!
Our invitation suite was personally designed by Kristy at Locust House, and we couldn’t have been more thrilled with her interpretation of our theme. The black and white plaid pattern mixed so well with our red and black plaid, and our lay flat was able to feature both as well as the beautiful rings made with real antler from Boundless Bands.
A favorite detail of mine were the vow books we featured from The Art of Etiquette. It’s such a beautiful way to make sure you both have those all-important vows on your wedding day, and they are such a lovely keepsake that a couple can keep for years to come.
Kylie fit our gorgeous “Jasmine” fit-and-flare gown from the Disney Princess Collection like it had been made for her, and we chose a bright plaid pattern to really show off the contrast between the jeweled ivory and the red and blacks of the shirt. Her hairstyle and make-up were modern, elegant, and fresh with a bold red lip and fabulously crafted updo. We loved the floral hairpiece our amazing florist created for her as it matched the various floral pieces throughout our decor set-up beautifully.
From the shiny red charger plates to the black matte salad plates, our reception and sweetheart table appeared luxurious, whimsical, and festive. Silver stags and candle holders made from trees mingled among gold-rimmed glasswares and clear ornaments holding lit candles.
One of my personal favorite parts of the shoot was the partially naked cake created by Mediterra Bakehouse. From the sugar crystal covered berries that graced the top to the elegant icing drips falling over the sides, it was an absolute wintery delight. I can see this particular cake being perfect not just for a holiday wedding, but for a Christmas party as well! They also supplied us with a variety of sweet treats including apple pie caramel apples (Divine!!!), tarts, mini frosted cakes, and several lovely large loaves of bread.
We chose to set up our ceremony location near a rustic building known to The Farm on the Ridge’s brides and grooms as the “chapel”. The rust-covered walls made the perfect backdrop for our hand-built wooden ceremony arch crafted just for us by Danielle’s husband Josh.
