Gorgeous Outdoor DIY Wedding – Hannah & Ed

post by nat

Hannah and Ed were married on a gorgeous property just north of Lititz. They had so many details to their wedding that friends and family helped bring together and their day was perfect!

They met at Gateway House of Prayer when Hannah was doing an internship and Ed was one of her leaders. Ed was intrigued by Hannah right away and it didn’t take long for them to develop a friendship that quickly turned into a relationship. Once they were engaged the hunt was on for a perfect place for them to get married. Ed was actually working on the property and just asked the owners if they could have their wedding there! It was a great fit for their outdoor ceremony, tented reception and as a place to accommodate all of their out of town guests.

Their wedding was whimsical and artsy, incorporating neutral colors and many different textures throughout their day. Everything was DIY and came together so beautifully! Here is Hannah and Ed’s lovely wedding.

Hannah’s mom made all of the dresses!! One of them is actually a dress of her’s that was altered to fit one of the bridesmaids. And check out the belt on Hannah’s dress, her mom hand beaded that, so amazing!

You may remember from Hannah & Ed’s engagement session that Hannah has a thing for couches she finds. They incorporated all of these into different lounge areas for their guests to enjoy. And that green couch from the engagement….it makes an appearance too….

After the ceremony they went for a walk down a wooded path to share communion together and then invited their parents and mentors to pray over them.

Reception details. Hannah’s family has been finding and collecting different sets of china for their family weddings. Hannah’s sister got married just three weeks earlier and used them as well. It’s such a pretty personal touch to the reception tables. Hannah and Ed chose to have a table to themselves and there’s that green couch! And Hannah made their wedding cake!! It was gorgeous & delicious :)
