Jena and John’s Cairnwood Estate fall wedding in Philadelphia was nothing short of amazing. We started the day at Jena and John’s parents homes for getting ready. Even the dog of honor joined in for a few photos! Then we were off to their ceremony where they said their vows at Sacred Heart Catholic church all while surrounded by their closest friends and family.
The reception at Cairnwood Estate was just breathtaking. I fall more and more in love with this venue every time I am here! Fun fact, I recently learned that the same architects who worked on the NY public library are the same people who designed Cairnwood Estate. Pretty amazing if you ask me! Before the sun went down, we wandered around for some bridal party portraits on the grounds. Jena had her bridesmaids in wine colored dresses which looked so perfect on the girls. When we got to the portraits of the two of them, they were just glowing after being officially official. I can’t get over how sweet these two are together!
Jena and John added lots of special touches to their reception! They had his and hers signature cocktails of Pear Vanilla Martini and a Manhattan with Bourbon soaked cherries. I also loved the wine bottles that they will open on each of their upcoming anniversaries that all the guests signed. They had their dinner and toasts in the tented porch overlooking the beautiful Cairnwood Estate grounds and everything looked so perfectly fall with La Petite Fleur doing an amazing job with the florals. The entire day was magical!
Jena and John, your wedding was such a joy to document. I loved spending the day with you both! Wishing you both all the best in your life and marriage together!
