Welkinweir Estate

An elegant fall wedding bursting with light in Pennsylvania.

From the bride: “My hunt for wedding inspiration began on a stressful note. I spent hours scrolling through impossibly beautiful weddings that felt nothing like me or my husband. I worried that maybe we just weren’t wedding people and would feel out of place on our own wedding day. My “aha” moment came when a friend advised me to think about how I would spend my perfect Saturday. Overnight, my Pinterest board filled with overgrown flower beds, cozy reading nooks, glasses of whiskey and moody ginger cakes. The description I reached on the phone with my wedding planner (creative genius Shannon Wellington) was “A secret garden magically growing out of Mr. Rochester’s library.” Our day was a bit whimsical, a little moody, a tad bookish, and perfectly us.”
