Happy Friday! We're finishing out the week with Marcy & David's elegant farmhouse wedding at the Spring Mill Café in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania! Although we were sad to hear these two are moving out of the city, we certainly can't blame them after seeing the rustic charm of the area! Marcy is truly radiant in HB6285 paired with our crystal YL09 belt and an elegant piece of hair jewelry. Thank you so much to Simply Fabulous Flowers and Events for the beautiful florals and to Liz Ligon Photography for sharing these photos! Congratulations again, Marcy & David!!
Saja: How did you meet?
Marcy: We met online through OK Cupid. I was just about to put my dating life on hold because grad school had become all consuming, but just before I did, I checked my inbox, something I hadn’t done in a month. My husband had taken the time to write a very thoughtful note and because his email had stood out from the rest, I decided to make an exception and meet him. We clicked immediately and the rest is history.
Saja: How did he propose?
Marcy: We were in the Dominican Republic and David suggested that we go for a walk on the beach. In a quiet spot on the beach during the late afternoon, he got down on one knee and popped the question which completely surprised and blew me away. I said yes immediately….but then I turned away because I didn’t want him to see me crying, and I must have taken a few steps away from him because he then said, “where are you going?” The humor even in that moment is reflective of the humor that pervades our relationship.
Saja: Is there anything you can point out about your pictures that we might not have noticed?
Marcy: I loved how our photographer Liz Ligon captured the in between moments, the little details, and the emotional state of the person she was photographing. She captured a lot of joy. She also blended so seamlessly into our day that everyone actually thought she was a friend of mine. Her work is amazing.
Saja: Where did the wedding take place? What made you choose there?
Marcy: The wedding took place in an old French farmhouse in Conshohocken, PA. We had wanted our wedding outside of NYC, and since we were planning to move to PA, the location worked out perfectly. We also needed to plan the wedding within just a few months, so we needed an intimate venue that was willing to work within our timeline. Spring Mill Café was just the place. Plus it was quaint, had loads of character and history that I immediately fell in love with it. The only thing that didn’t work out was our plan to have the ceremony at a nearby park. It rained the morning of our wedding so we moved the ceremony to the porch of the restaurant.
In the end, it didn’t really matter. What mattered was the love and laughter that filled our ceremony!
Saja: What was your favorite part of the day?
Marcy: When my husband surprised me with a wedding dance. We planned a very small wedding with live music and a luncheon, with the idea that we’d have a big dance party a year later. But a week before the wedding, I was asking my fiancé, “you won’t mind if I just sneak out onto the porch and boogie down with a couple of people?” Dance has given me so much joy over the course of my life that I wanted it to be a part of our special day. Right before we cut the cake, my husband pulled out the computer, and we danced to “Overjoyed” by Stevie Wonder. His thoughtfulness overwhelmed me in that moment and I just started tearing up. He played a few more songs and encouraged the whole room to join us, which they joyfully did. It was such an amazing moment and he orchestrated all of it!
