There is nothing like a wedding in a rural, country setting. Since we are in Montgomery County, PA, we are near many beautiful venues with the country scenery. Some are truly in the "country." Others are in places that used to be rural, but the surrounding farms have been developed and now are the suburbs of Philadelphia. I define a "country" wedding as one that takes place in a setting that is wooded, or a farm. Here are a few ideas of recent weddings with this theme.
Located at 859 County Line Road Horsham, PA 19044 Tel: 215-343-0965.Graeme Park is a historical landmark in Horsham PA. It featuring the Keith House, the only surviving residence of a Colonial Pennsylvania Governor. The mansion has remained virtually intact since the late 18th century. There are many beautiful areas for pictures, a pond, an old barn, the Keith house, the woods a bridge etc. The wedding we did there recently was great. The day was beautiful to look at but unusually cold for that time of year. The bridal party kept on their shirts over their dresses to help stay warm but were more than willing to stay outside and have fun playing around to allow us to get some great shots of the bride and groom.
One decision they had made that turned out to be perfect was to wear leather boots. They were beautiful, comfortable and practical for walking around on the grass. If you are looking for a beautiful pair of boots try the western cowboy boots from the Texan brand King Ranch.
The wedding was outside the Keith house and the reception was in a large heated tent on the grounds. The bride and groom filled the tent with personal touches and even spent the year building large wooden games to place outside for their guests to play. They had some very original ideas. One thing I had never seen before is that they had a sapling at the ceremony. Both mothers watered it in the beginning and the bride and groom watered it after the vowels. I'm sure it will make them think of their wedding for many years as it grows.
