Christina and Brandon's stunning Fall wedding at cairnwood estate
"We think you will agree that Cairnwood Estate set the stage for a beautiful, romantic wedding day for Christina and brandon, and Amber dawn photography's captures make us feel like we're right there with them."
The Philadelphia area might be miles away from the history and architecture of Europe, but there is a stunning wedding venue tucked outside of the city that can make you feel as though you’ve jetted across the Atlantic Ocean: Cairnwood Estate.
Located in Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania, the Estate dates back to the Gilden Age in 1885, and the gorgeous grounds, opulent terrace, and stately interiors look and feel as though they were designed for grand celebrations- and Christina and Brandon took note.
The couple invited their guests to join them as they celebrated their new October union, and they each began their days tucked inside the Estate’s beautiful suites where they toasted with their bridesmaids and groomsmen. Although Christina and Brandon chose not to see each other for the first time until she walked down the aisle, Christina did debut her romantic lace and organza wedding dress to her dad and brother during their first looks.
After professing their love and reciting their vows, Christina and Brandon enjoyed their debut as a married paid as they exited the church in a flurry of bubbles and were whisked back to Cairnwood Estate in a vintage Rolls Royce. Portraits were captured with the couples and their wedding party with their softly draped and lit tent in the background while their guests sipped on cocktails. Then their reception commenced with dancing inside the Estate and dinner in the warm fall air.
