Yesterday I shared the story of our 10 year wedding renewal ceremony recently featured in Destination I DO magazine…Read on for more on the very colorful dinner celebration! Our original wedding as I like to call it now was lightyears away from this renewal celebration.  We did the big-party-invite-everyone-you-ever-knew thing.  It was a wonderful day and I don’t regret a bit of it.  When it came time to celebrate 10 years together, I knew it would be different.  Bold color, regional textures and flavors were the beginning.  The end was a joyous and very small celebration that made us all […]

You may remember the Vow Renewal  Hubby and I planned back in 2010? Leading up to the day, every detail was shared here but TODAY I can finally reveal the full story!  Why the wait you might be wondering?  Well, the editors at Destination I Do Magazine graciously offered to feature the our renewal story and today the issue hits newsstands!  I am a very patient girl, but holding onto these stunning images taken by Lindsey at Green Apple Photography has tested my will.  All good things come… So let me tell you a story, one befitting this very romantic […]

For the next installment of our Renewal in PA posts, I am sharing more today about our candy favors, Sylvia Weinstock Cake and the stationery by yours truly!  Have a look at previous posts here and here to catch up on all the detail! A big part of our vow renewal planning process involved collecting. Some of my fondest memories in planning grew from the many trips we took as a family hunting down depression style glassware, old  sour cream glasses and linens to use throughout the celebration.  My Nana had a good sized collection of vintage sour cream glasses […]

To continue our Renewal story today I am sharing more about our fabulous venue in Dallas, Pennsylvania.  Early on in the planning I posted this, so have a look!  The Cottage at Hillside Farms is anything but that which the word cottage implies.  This was the summer home of the well known Cunningham farming family.  A well loved place, full of original china, rugs and architecture, the owners of this grand place trust each visitor to wander carefully and respect the history each item holds.  The minute you enter the Cottage, you are welcomed in, feeling an instant sense of […]
