Elkins Estate Wedding on a Gorgeous Summer Day

Sep 12, 2023

This beautiful summer Elkins Estate Wedding for Alyssa and Gino was an absolute joy to photograph. We had the incredible pleasure of being the second wedding ever to take place at this stunning venue. We always love working on weddings with the talented Arielle Fera Events.

Nestled within 42 acres just outside Philadephia, Elkins Estate is one of the most luxurious new venues in the area. The interior of the estate was thoughtfully designed by Allard et Fils. They’re a gifted group of French interior designers from the Gilded Age. There’s nothing quite like it in the area. It felt like being transported to France with its frescoed ceilings, marble columns, and finishings.

The estate also has onsite hotel accommodations! The owners and venue staff are some of the most welcoming and accommodating people in the industry.

Elkins Estate is one of the most exquisite spaces! I’m honored that Gino and Alyssa asked us to document this day for them!

Alyssa and Gino’s Elkins Estate Wedding

Alyssa and Gino also had quite an eye for detail in planning their Elkins Estate wedding! My team and I had the most beautiful time styling their details with fresh flowers. I loved Alyssa’s custom ring box. They chose the most gorgeous shade of powder blue! It was so pretty with their choice of venue!

We loved the limitless choices for portrait locations at Elkins Estate. There were picture-perfect vignettes around every corner. The facade of the building even provided the most gorgeous and even tones for bouncing light – what more can a photographer ask for?!

Their ceremony location was absolute perfection, too! Twisted Willow Flowers created the most amazing floral installs for the occasion. And, you know we will always take advantage of the opportunity for a photo op with a grand spiral staircase.

Every single detail of this day was a dream! We hope you love it as much as we did!
