This styled shoot at the Old Mill in Rose Valley, Pennsylvania, combines luxurious details with organic, fresh touches. With a color palette of silver sages, dusty blues and gray tones, designers took note to balance the natural beauty of the location with their dreamy vision. It’s the perfect escape for any couple looking to venture from the bustling city and connect through an outdoor experience. The invitation suite features a blue and white theme that offers a preview for what’s to come. A sketch of the venue rests at the bottom of the invitation and each piece has cohesion thanks to the classic calligraphy.
The bride looks ethereal in a sheer dress and her hair is styled in a timeless French twist.
The front of her gown features a deep lace V-neck and long flowing skirt. It’s perfect for the outdoor setting.
The décor of the shoot definitely leans on refined comfort. A gorgeous light blue chair holds the bride’s bouquet, a remarkable collection of azaleas, peonies, veronica and campanella.
The addition of light blue ribbons tied around the handle is a seamless touch.
The bride’s style is utterly romantic, even when she covers her head with a veil.
As the sun peeks out from the tops of the trees, she looks like she stepped out of the pages of a romance novel.
The Garden Courtyard at Old Mill is the perfect place for a ceremony or small reception. The weather-worn stone arches, climbing ivy, and abundant moss create a wistful ambiance.
A mixture of wooden and fabric chairs are placed around the white table. A thin table runner sits beneath a line of potted herbs and white pillar candles.
The place settings are simple but impactful with their gray plates, gray napkins, silver goblets, and flatware. The combination emits an old world feel.
Light blue velvet has a starring role in the reception scene. On the three-tier wedding cake, each layer has a thick band of blue velvet for a touch of polish amid the carefree location.
Foliage is abundant at Old Mill and the bride wastes no time exploring her surroundings. With bare feet, she makes her way down the stone paths, around the water, and finds a wall of roses.
The bride is illustrious standing next to the wall of pink and yellow roses. In a shoot that captures the natural colors of the location, the inclusion of the pastel blooms is unexpected but elegant.
This styled shoot shows how a ceremony and reception location can provide so much wedding inspiration on its own. The bubbly brooks, the lofty trees, and the generous flowers sprinkled around the property are inviting, charming, and romantic. For a smaller setting with a more memorable and intimate feel, couples couldn’t do better than Old Mill.
