Fall weddings have a certain magical quality about them, with their vibrant colors and crisp air creating an atmosphere of romance and warmth. Jess and Mike’s wedding at Stonebridge Events in Cumberland, Maryland perfectly captured the essence of this season, with stunning forest green details, a reception under a white tent, and breathtaking portraits taken during the enchanting golden hour. Let’s dive into the captivating highlights of their special day.

The Details

Jess and Mike’s wedding decor exuded elegance and sophistication, with forest green accents adorning every corner. From the lush foliage lining the aisle to the intricately designed table runners and centerpieces, the deep green hues created a harmonious blend with the natural surroundings of Stonebridge Events. The choice of this color palette beautifully complemented the fall foliage, creating a picturesque backdrop for their celebration.

Tented Reception

The reception took place under a majestic white tent, providing an intimate and enchanting setting for the couple’s loved ones. The soft glow of twinkling lights and the sound of laughter filled the air as guests celebrated the newlyweds. The choice of a white tent allowed the beauty of the natural surroundings to shine through, adding a touch of rustic charm to the festivities.

Penn State Fandom

As an ode to Mike’s allegiance to Penn State (and as a surprise from the bride), guests participated in a unique and spirited gesture. Instead of the traditional waving of napkins or sparklers, everyone waved white towels in celebration of the groom’s favorite team. This playful and personal touch added an element of fun and camaraderie, bringing smiles to everyone’s faces.

Sunset Wedding Portraits

During the golden hour, when the sun casts a warm and ethereal glow, Jess and Mike took advantage of the picturesque setting and ventured out to the venue’s calm pond. Surrounded by nature’s beauty, the couple’s love radiated as they posed for their portraits. The reflections on the water and the soft, golden light enhanced the dreamlike quality of these photographs, capturing the essence of their special day.

Jess and Mike’s fall wedding at Stonebridge Events in Cumberland, Maryland, was a truly unforgettable celebration. The stunning forest green details, the romantic tented reception space, and the ethereal portraits taken during golden hour all contributed to the enchanting atmosphere of their special day. It was a wedding that not only celebrated their love but also embraced the beauty of the fall season.
