A Timeless Lush Wedding at The Old Mill in Rose Valley

Mar 11, 2020

Liz and Sean tied the knot on a gorgeous September day. The Old Mill in Rose Valley was the perfect location for this timeless and gorgeous fall wedding.

This beautiful venue looks like a tuscan villa and even features stone ruins!

From the Bride – “We got married at The Old Mill in Rose Valley. What sold us was there was an equally beautiful outside as well as inside ceremony locations since we knew we wanted to get married at the venue. But what we soon learned to love most is the beautiful ‘tuscan’ feel right outside of Philadelphia, with the stone, open court yard, green everywhere and who doesn’t love string lights! The venue had many different areas guests could go, all of which were romantic and warm feeling.”

“We love neutral, soft, romantic colors. We went with a pallet of all different shades of blue (both of our favorite colors), with sprinkles of blush, whites, greenery and pops of gold. A lot of our decor was DIY, from the table runners (hand dyed, Sean’s idea!), to name tags, table numbers, seating chart, and our guest board I painted. Sean’s mom also contributed and made us a welcome sign :). The DIY feel was important to me to be able to put personal and unique touches throughout the day.”

“One of my favorite items was my something blue, a locket wrapped around my bouquet with a photo of my grandma in it on her wedding day wearing the same veil which I wore on my wedding day. Personal touches like that where so important to me. The vibe was just to be us! Meaning, we are very family and friend oriented. There was definitely both a romantic and joyful vibe that filled the reception room with so much warmth and love.”

“The whole bridal party wore all different shades of blue! Sean and the groomsmen wore navy blue suits and chestnut color shoes from Flocco’s in Conshohocken. Maids of Honors wore Morilee in “dove” and Bridesmaids also wore Morilee in “fog”. I got my gown from a boutique in Wilmington, DE called Irinis Original LLC. It was such a fun and personal experience getting my dress there 🙂 Personally I think the ring bearer and flower girls wore it best!”

“We both agree our favorite memory of the day was our wedding ceremony itself. There were a lot of personal touches including Sean walking his mom down the aisle and both of my brothers walking me down the aisle, we did a unity candle in which both of our moms got to be involved. My absolute favorite part of the ceremony was getting to say our own vows. Sean surprised me with personalized vow books, no matter how nervous I was, I wouldn’t have changed the decision to say our own vows in front of everyone we love most for the world.”

“It’s hard to pick just one memory, the whole day was absolutely perfect but our other favorite memory was after all of the traditional parts of the wedding, dancing the night away with each other and all of our closest friends and family was something we’ll never forget, the amount of love we felt that night was incredible.”

Liz – “I love that Sean gets so excited over ‘the little things’ but they aren’t little things to him. When he feels passionate about something, he goes all in. I especially get butterflies when he gets that way over his friends’ accomplishments. He has a lot of love to give and I’m lucky and grateful he’s my love story.”

Sean – “My favorite thing about Liz is her empathy towards others, in her work life and personal life both.”
