A Wedding at Graeme Park: Ashley & Thurman

Ashley and Thurman's October wedding took place behind the Keith House at Graeme Park at an alter they decorated with pumpkins, mums, fall garland and lace.

After the ceremony, the wedding party gathered for photos while the guests headed to the wedding tent for cocktails and appetizers catered by The Red Cedar Grille in Colmar.

Back in the tent, they opted to for an upscale rustic look with wooden farm tables, bamboo chairs and casual arrangements of cheery sunflowers arranged by Willow and Thistle.

Even the cake combined a rustic wood bottom with a more elegant top accented with sunflowers.

Congratulations Ashley and Thurman and thank you for celebrating at Graeme Park!

A Wedding at Graeme Park: Katie & Steve

The weather Gods finally turned things around for Katie and Steve's wedding at Graeme Park and they had a gorgeous day of bright blue skies and sunshine for their vows in front of the Keith House.

The cocktail hour was held in the field between the 18th century house and the 19th century Pennsylvania bank barn. Joey G's always puts on a huge spread of hot and cold hors d'oeuvres and guests had their choice of high and low top tables and lounge furniture to enjoy their sips and nibbles. There were also some lawn games for the more athletic types to enjoy.

Inside the tent, tables were set with vintage linens and colorful flowers in an assortment of milk glass vases.


The menu consisted of tomato, mozzarella and roasted peppers over field greens, filet mignon, pan seared crab cakes, whipped potatoes, grilled asparagus, and vegetarian options, plus a dessert bar.


The lovely cake was done by Velvet Sky Bakery and included vintage toppers (family heirlooms?) in the display.

The periphery of the tent included displays of vintage wedding photographs and "s'more love" for guests to take home.

Congratulations Katie and Steve and thank you for celebrating at Graeme Park.

A Wedding at Graeme Park: Nicole & Mike

Nicole and Mike had the second of our rainy October weekend weddings, and again, I must apologize for the crappy cell-phone pictures. They were able to get in their outdoor ceremony behind the historic Keith House at Graeme Park before retiring to the tent for cocktail hour, dinner and dancing.

They chose to set the tent up with long, family-style tables, white, neutral and navy blue linens, and colorful fall flowers arranged in mason jars.

The caterer was Diverse Catering and their meal consisted of roasted new potatoes, rigatoni with spinach in cream sauce, roasted vegetables, a beef dish and salmon.

Their family tradition also included a cookie table with everyone contributing their specialty.

"Help yourself to a cookie ... or twelve" - these are my kind of people!

Congratulations Nicole and Mike and thank you for celebrating at Graeme Park.

A Wedding at Graeme Park: Katie & Andrew

Katie and Andrew were one of two weddings we had at Graeme Park during the first weekend in October and it rained BUCKETS on their day. Fortunately they were able to move everything inside the tent and had a really cute set up with the ceremony taking place on the dance floor at one end of the tent, the tables for dinner set up in the center and a lounge and cocktail area set up at the other end of the tent.

First, I'll apologize for the lousy pictures: it was dark and I only had a cell phone, so they unfortunately do not accurately depict how beautiful and elegant the wedding was.

The tables were set with navy blue linens which really set off the vibrant floral arrangements and iron candle lanterns provided additional light. 

The catering was done by Carolino's of West Chester and consisted of antipasto, hot roast beef au jus, hot roast pork, chicken Marsala, spring mix salad with pecans and cranberries, mushroom risotto, and a custom pasta station. The dessert bar included a spice wedding cake, cannoli, chocolate cups, chocolate covered strawberries and other assorted goodies.

Congratulations Katie and Andrew and thank you for choosing Graeme Park to celebrate your marriage.

A Wedding at Graeme Park: Kori & David

Kori and David had a beautiful September afternoon for their boho-styled wedding at Graeme Park. The bride, bedecked in a baby's breath wreath, walked out of the woods in a lace gown like a woodland fairy and joined her gingham-shirted and green-bow-tied groom and guests in front of the historic Keith House.

After the ceremony the guests enjoyed a lavish spread of hors d'oevres, including cheese and crackers, fruit, grilled vegetables, sliders and other hot appetizers catered by Joey G's of Newtown.

Joey G's., who is one of our preferred caterers, then followed with a casual, relaxed meal of iceberg lettuce wedges with crumbled bacon and blue cheese, build-your-own burgers and dogs, grilled veggie wraps, mac and cheese, and assorted fries.

The tent was decked out in full bouquets of fresh daisies and baby's breath, simple white linens and natural wooden chairs.

The cake echoed the daisy theme and was topped with the couple's initial.

Congratulations Kori and David and thank you for choosing Graeme Park to celebrate your marriage.
