I have such a weakness for simple, outdoor weddings, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I instantly fell head over heels for Anna and Phil’s wedding. I think it was Anna’s gorgeous dress which initially caught my eye…can you believe she made it herself?

I love that outdoor setting!! I’m looking to rent a vacation home in Massachusetts for my garden wedding. I have to wonder though, how did she walk outside in those heels! I’m surprised they didn’t sink in the ground. Looks amazing though :)

This is such an elegant and classy wedding. I think the floral arrangement is one of the most stunning centerpieces I’ve ever seen. And the house looks like it’s lifted from the pages of a Jane Austen novel.

Wow! I can not believe the bride made her own dress. I love the two-tone contrast and the simple, classy style. The design is perfect for the setting and looks fabulous with her vintage-esque veil! Beautiful!

Please, where is this? I’m planning a Hudson Valley wedding and I wish I knew what this venue was…

This really was a gorgeous wedding! I was honored to work on all the wedding stationary for the lovely Anna and Phil.
The event was at the historic Wynkoop House in Stone Ridge, NY (www.wynkoophouse.com). The bride did in fact make the dress and all the flowers were arranged by the groom’s mother. The ceremony was outside and the reception inside the barn which made for a very beautiful, unique event!

Oh wow. I just love her dress. What a talented lady. And I’d be happy to move into that beautiful house.

I am totally bookmarking Wynkoop House. It is simply stunning. I really think I’d like to live there!

I also wonder what the very low addition with the roof is. An entrance to a basement? A clever hideaway for an a/c unit or something? It’s darling!

I love her dress – has anyone seen a two-tone dress like that for sale? I’ve been trying to find one, but I’m not nearly talented enough to make it myself.

Lauren | Reply

Jackie I have am in love with a two-tone dress too. If you find one, please let me know as I am a bride-to-be looking!!
