Soft and Warm, Romantic and Chic: A Multi-Perspective Styled Shoot

written by Adore Vendor Sarah Petryk/Allium Floral Design

When Durham Springs remodeled and opened in the former Cascade Lodge in Kintnersville, Pa last year, we were thrilled to have an opportunity to decorate their open, neutral “white box” space. Since they had not yet hosted any events, they were looking to gather images for social media to show couples what would be possible in the space. From a decor perspective we worked with a soft and warm neutral palette. We used a ribbon wall and an asymmetrical floral column to create a ceremony focal point. The centerpieces glowed with warm candlelight and decadent layers of rose petals that reached all the way to the glassware. We also used the ribbon in the dramatic chandeliers to create a central focal point within the room itself. Action Party Rentals in Allentown, Pa, provided the perfect shade of peach cocktail table linens and napkins. They added just the right “pop” of color in the room, along with furniture by Fox and Finch Vintage Rentals in Bethlehem, Pa.  As the sun set on the room, lighting by Omnivent, in Bethlehem, Pa, provided a soft glow in the background, further enhancing the candlelight throughout the room.

The wedding attire was styled by MJ the Stylist and featured stunning gowns by L’Fay in Fogelsville, and perfect bridesmaid dresses from Bella Bridesmaid in Allentown. Sorrelli Jewelry offered just the right bit of sparkle. All of the beautiful makeup and hair styling was expertly applied by Beards and Babes, based in Catasaqua. Kate Hunter from Lehigh Valley Celebrants was kind enough to step in to provide an authentic ceremony experience for us to photograph.

Check out the playful clementine escort “cards”, signage and menus beautifully hand lettered by Ren and Ink, of Allentown. And the cake!!!!! Do you see that exquisite hand-painted cake from Quakertown’s Amy’s Creative Cakes?

Most importantly check out the images from our three INCREDIBLE Lehigh Valley photographers: Jennifer Green Photography, Birds of A Feather and Photosynthesis. Each of them had specific times of day and scenarios to photograph, so you’ll see a different approach with each of them. I loved this aspect of the photoshoot the most, because it’s unusual for us to have an opportunity to see how each photographer looks at the overall story. Most weddings feature one photographer, so to see each photographer’s individual perspective on the day is a rare and delightful treat.

Jennifer Green Photography

Jennifer Green Photography captured details, food and precious family moments and portraits. Jeni Green’s rich, true-to-life style is perfectly showcased here.

Birds of a Feather Photography

Birds of A Feather started the day with some exceptional ceremony images and portraits. Tassia Schreiner’s light and airy style is perfectly suited to capture the beautiful light flooding through the venue.



Photosynthesis Photography

Bill Stank from Photosynthesis Photography finished the evening with his dramatic, lit photography featuring the room, food and portraits.
