Cultures merge at this Quaker ceremony meets Mexican fiesta wedding

Nora and Paco had a Quaker meets Mexico wedding at the school where Nora's parents worked. Nora comes from Quaker roots and Paco was born and raised in Mexico, so the blend of these traditions was so interesting to see unfold. There was a traditional Quaker ceremony followed by a surprise Mariachi band that led guests to a Mexican fiesta complete with a fab taco bar and music. Once the Mariachi band departed, a folk band came in to lead everyone in traditional square dancing.

DIY for days at this laid-back Pennsylvania wedding on a working farm

Molly and Clement’s amazing laid-back Pennsylvania wedding was at a working farm, Mountain Dale farm in Central Pennsylvania. It was a full-on DIYed event with decor make by Molly, found from thrift stores and exchanges. Think flag garlands, silk flower garlands, old map signs, and real flowers provided by friends and family.
Don't miss the "event barn" that featured knickknacks, old furniture, the DIYed photo booth, and so much more.

This minimalist Philly wedding proves that simple is CHIC

We decided to do an old school Champagne and Cake reception immediately following the wedding in the same space, the Philadelphia Wedding Chapel. The chapel is a decorated, NY-style loft space and you simply show up. We hired musicians on our own as live music was not included. The wedding and reception was ninety minutes total at 3:00pm. Only twenty-six people were in attendance.
