Hannah and Anton’s Winter Wedding at Ryland Inn

ON 5, December 2018


Hannah and Anton had a beautiful ceremony and wedding reception at Ryland Inn in Lehigh Valley. The venue was light an airy with white walls and high ceilings. Yet, the texture of the different stone elements incorporated into the fireplace and exterior gave the space a decidedly cozy feel.

Hannah prepared the day surrounded by her squad. The bridesmaids donned matching silk robes in the same hue as their dresses, while Hannah wore a white silk robe. We love the extra touch of having these robes personalized with everyone's names, and they made for a great group photo during the getting ready portion of the day.

For her big day, Hannah chose a stunning lace dress paired with a cathedral length veil. She added an elegant hairpiece to complement her look. Hairpieces can be great, especially when the bride is wearing a long veil because it allows you to ditch the veil for more freedom while still giving your hair a little something special.

Hannah didn't rely on her short-sleeved lace dress to keep her warm for her winter wedding. The bride added a bridal wrap in white faux fur to keep her cozy for outdoor photos. The bridesmaids complemented this look with grey faux fur wraps that paired nicely with their burgundy dresses.

Now, onto the gents. Anton proved that he knows how to keep things sharp in a grey suit with burgundy bowties and pocket squares. The groomsmen all wore matching suits, bringing a wonderful element of cohesion to the day.

The couple knocked it out of the park when it came to the ceremony and reception decor. This wedding is everything you need for December wedding inspiration. The ceremony space was made warm and inviting by lush elements of greenery and touches of burgundy that lined the aisle. They had a whimsically rustic ceremony arch that looks lovely in the close-up shots for their ceremony.

Nothing says cozy like the raging fire the couple had for the reception. We love the way they used the hearth to enhance the spirit of the day. The theme of greenery speckled with deep red accents continued on the dinner tables. We loved the bright pop of the napkins against the white table linens, and the smattering of votives on the table, which brought a warm glow to the evening's festivities.

Hannah and Anton ended the night with one of our favorite ceremony exits. The couple passed through a glimmering sparkler exit, and Anton seized the moment with a big dip and a kiss-- a fun moment for the crowd and a perfect pose for their wedding photography.
