Sometimes the greyest days make for the best pictures, and this was certainly the case for Amanda and Mark! The Oberports beautifully captured every detail from the couples day and we are still swooning! Mark, a professor at Slippery Rock University, and Amanda, a Professional Photographer in the City of Pittsburgh, chose Rustic Acres to house their main event as it was just minutes from their family home in New Wilmington! The couple chose to have a first look not only with each other but with their guests as well as they stood before the ceremony site, personally greeting everyone who arrived!
The non-traditional couple joined each other, accompanied by the Mother of the Groom and Mother of the Bride, for their short walk down the aisle.
After the ceremony, guests were invited to the top level of the barn for a delicious spread of appetizers from the “Tomato Harvest Festival” provided by JPC Event Group.
After a quick change, the new Mr. and Mrs. were ready for their grand introduction and First Dance!
The color scheme for the wedding was jewel tones, and the couple displayed their vibrant florals on classic navy linens with a mixture of round and rectangle table shape.
Once the speeches concluded, the Chefs of JPC delivered a delicious meal to the guests beginning with an Apple Pecan Field Green Salad followed by a duet plate of Merlot and Shallot Braised Short Ribs, Strawberry BBQ Chicken Breast, Whipped Yukon Gold Potatoes, and Grilled Asparagus Speers.
To be sure the couple was seen in all of the details of the event, the “Grooms Cake” was a very unique Cheese Wheel Cake crafted by the Chefs of JPC.
The party began immediately once the Bachelor Boys began playing sounds the whole crowd recognized and continued on into the night!
Congrats and well wishes to the new Mr. and Mrs. from the Rustic Acres Farm and JPC Event Group Team!
