A Unexpected Fairy Tale Wedding

So last weekend a couple of my best friends from college got married, so me and the boys loaded up in cars and planes to get ourselves to Philly. In what was suppose to be the happiest week of their lives and unimaginable family emergency happened just a few short days before the wedding. In leaving TN, we were now feeling as if we were going to the wedding as moral support than what were good at - aka keeping the party going.

But sadness aside, the wedding went off without a hitch. We also learned that our friend came from a historic family from the Philly area, so his wedding took place in his family's old mansion in Bryn Athan, name Cairnwood.

The ceremony took place in the church that his ancestors built and the amazing reception took place in the mansion along the same scenic and gorgeous property.

beautiful church

all my boys!

Isn't he so cute all dressed up?

After the ceremony, I pretty much stashed my camera and did what I was instructed, which was to fully enjoy the open bar and help keep everyone's spirits up. So I listened and there aren't any photos from the reception but check out the beautiful church and all my handsome dates! Oh and the butterflies too...coolest wedding idea ever and mine didn't leave my hand for 10 minutes!


  1. what a georgeous church! and a pretty butterfly too.

  2. You're from Nashville too, yay! I found you through the giveaway and wanted to say hi rather than lurk. Curious... do you work in the Country Music Hall of Fame's library? I wanted to intern there while I was finishing my library science degree. If so, you're living my dream. :)
