Brandywine Manor House Wedding in Chester County, Pennsylvania – Rachael & Bob

While Labor Day weekend is still very much part of the summer season, it’s also the unofficial foray into fall. So if you get married during this holiday weekend, you’re lucky to have the best of both worlds in terms of weather and styling options! 

Rachael and Bob got married at the Brandywine Manor House in Chester County, Pennsylvania. This historic country garden venue is sprawled across 85 acres, making it a striking and vast place to photograph. The weather was still quite warm and summery, allowing for a beautiful outdoor ceremony and tented reception, while wine-colored bridesmaid dresses and groomsmen ties called to mind the deeper hues of autumn months to come.

Prosecco was popped by the beaming bride, who had the best time getting ready in the Manor Barn. Lori at Top Knot Hair gave Rachael a romantic updo, and Danielle Gonzalez created a glowing makeup look. Dozens of buttons dotted Rachael’s low-back Stella York gown, with breathtaking lace details and a dramatic train. Bob’s reaction during their first look was so genuine and sweet!

Their portrait session on the grounds of Brandywine Manor House had a gorgeous natural backdrop of meadows and lush trees, as did their ceremony at The Glen. Guests headed inside Brandywine Tent for the reception to discover romantic lanterns covering the white draped structure. White chairs and linens completed the soft and dreamy vibe of the festivities. 

What I loved most about this wedding were the little elements of surprise sprinkled throughout: Rachael’s bouquet, which had pops of deep red flowers in concert with softer pink and white hues. Bob’s cufflinks, a nod to the Eagles Super Bowl win. The dessert, a sweet trio of minimalist cakes from The Sugary. And the place cards that doubled as petite wine bottle favors. No matter the season, it’s details like these that make a wedding truly memorable.
