The home of Hannah and Ethan Farrell provided an elegant old country feel for their chilly January wedding. Captured by April & Bryan Photography, the two enjoyed a very quaint ceremony, followed by a cavern reception in the catacombs at Bube’s Brewery. Simplicity and modesty played monumental roles in the making of the Farrell’s wedding day.
The utilization of greens and traditional white, further enhanced the classic romantic theme, while the intimacy of using their own home as a wedding destination served as a tool for a self-sufficient wedding approach. Cocktail hour snacks were provided by the couple and mother of the bride, and even the greens riddled throughout the ceremony were salvaged from a compost pile from the mother of the bride.
Hannah chose a dress that hugged her curves, but left a little more to the imagination. A simple off-white satin gown paired with dangling pearl, teardrop earrings made her look like she was walking straight out of a 1940s film. Her matching jacket added depth to the bridal look and her ‘something blue’ shoes were the icing on top.
Florals were few and far between with greenery taking center stage. Not only did this strategy most likely save the two a chunk of change, but it made for an organically decorated environment. Nothing feels pushed or themed. Though, white florals did make an appearance in Hannah’s bouquet, the integral green stood out most. Contrasting the two colors made for clean design and a sense of tidiness.
After the ceremony, the newly weds, along with guests, made their way to Bube’s Brewery, where a candle and string light lit reception awaited them. Being as the catacombs are a historical monument of the booming brewery age of the 1850s, the pairing of cast iron plates, aging barrels and a barely naked cake matched the schematic flawlessly.
Photo opportunities were plentiful and unique from what you would normally see at your run of the mill wedding. Though the Farrell’s opted for a simpler ceremony, the uncommon location of the reception added some insight into the couple’s style. The catacombs granted the two an exclusive experience. They can now boast their wedding was one for the books.
If you are looking for something low-key with a down to Earth feel, this wedding is right up your ally. Inspiration can be seen everywhere in this homegrown wedding, with a splash of appreciation for the borough of Mount Joy.
