Summer Wedding in Erie PA
This down to earth couple exchanged summer wedding vows on a warm, sunny day in June overlooking a hill at Mound Grove Golf Club in Historic Waterford, PA. Erie Wedding & Event Services full team was there to Create & Capture Memories with the couple and their guests by providing Wedding Coordination, Ceremony Sound, Reception Disc Jockey, & Wedding Photography.
Everything about Vince & Rebecca’s Summer Wedding Day reflected the couple’s perfectly matched personalities. This couple is laid back, down to earth, and easy going. There atmosphere was filled with light hearted joy and good humor from early in the day until the final goodbye at the reception.
Even the details of this summer wedding captured the essence of this celebration. The multi-colored flowers were hand designed by the bride & her bridesmaids. They delightfully filled the rustic barn with bursts of bright happy color. Even the brides gorgeous and unique ring bouquets were handmade to fit the feel and theme of this wedding day. The bridal party wore outfits in complementing colors that suited their unique tastes. The homemade wedding cake and cupcakes complimented the down to earth feel of the reception. Each aspect of the wedding was meant to be welcoming and comfortable.
The most unique item of the day was the hand sewn dress the bride designed herself. She said she had to start over a few times to ensure the dress would be a surprise to the groom during their First Look before the ceremony because he kept coming home early and catching her at work. There were several versions of the dress that were all different. In the end, the dress she created expertly matched her personality.
What We Did
We began our journey with Vince & Rebecca a few months before their wedding. The groom is originally from the Erie PA area and had family ties to Mound Grove Golf Course. His ties are the reason they selected the rustic location. However, the couple currently lives out of state. Because we offer very useful online planning tools for our clients and we have a good relationship with the venue, the venue wedding coordinator was confident she could refer us to Vince & Rebecca.
Our Wedding Coordinator spoke with the bride several times going over wedding options with them about Coordination, DJ, and Photography before booking. As soon as the date was reserved we sent out the couple’s personal online planning forms that guided them through the planning process every step of the way.
As we always do, our coordinator held a final meeting with Vince & Rebecca about 2 weeks before their day. They were able to conduct a phone meeting to compensate for the distance. Once final plans were made our coordinator created a Wedding Day Schedule and held a meeting with the team members who would be providing service that day.
The Newlyweds opted for our Ceremony Sound & Coordination Package, our Premium DJ Packages, and our Bountiful Photography Package. The ceremony took place outdoors next to the old farm house overlooking the vast fields in the distance with the reception following immediately in the barn.
Our Photography team arrived early to begin with Getting Ready & First Look Photos with the bride & groom. Meanwhile, our Sound team setup and prepared for the ceremony. The Wedding Coordinator was right on hand to cue everyone at the perfect moment for walking down the aisle while the DJ cued the music. While the couples 2 shooters captured the Formal Photos the guests, DJ, and Coordinator moved inside the barn for the Cocktail Hour. The remainder of this Summer Wedding days festivities centered around the barn with dancing & dining indoors and Corn Hole and other games outside on the lawn for the children to enjoy.
