As you’ll read in Ali’s description of her and Mark’s wedding, it’s clear this happy couple wanted their wedding style to be simple, natural and a reflection of them and their special love for each other. With that they immediately fell in love with Bartram’s Garden in Pennsylvania, and we don’t blame them!
On top of the perfect venue and stunning attire, we’re swooning over these perfectly pretty blooms. And with BG Productions Photography and Videography behind the lens, these two have the wonderful images below and more to remember their incredible day forever more.
From the bride:
Mark and I are both nurses, and met working on an oncology floor at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. We were just friends first, and when Mark decided to move onto a different type of nursing (critical care), I realized that I just was not OK seeing less of him! I asked him to meet me out for happy hour one day without all of our friends, and the rest is history! Fast forward 3 years later, and he was tying an engagement ring to our dog’s collar for me to find!
Wedding planning was fairly easy for us, aside from the guest list struggle. We have HUGE families and love to entertain, so we wanted to invite everyone we knew (which was impossible)! We both had a similar idea of what we wanted: simple, rustic, elegant. We looked at a lot of venues online and narrowed it down to a few that we would visit. Bartram’s was the first appointment we had and we never made it to any of the other venues! We both fell in love with it and by the end of the walk through there, we were picking which date we wanted to be our wedding day! After picking the venue, everything else sort of fell into place. We found out that Ken from Diverse Catering, was also the exclusive caterer for Yards Brewery and that he co-owned Memphis Tap Room, and we knew we had to book them. We wanted our style to be simple and natural, because the natural beauty at Bartram’s Garden is enough to take your breath away!
With the help of Ken and Mike from Diverse, and our other awesome vendors, like Triple Tree Flowers and Love ‘n Fresh flowers, we were able to create the wedding of our dreams! We had the BEST time at our wedding. I don’t think we ever thought that it would turn out as perfect as it did, and we will remember it fondly forever!
