Lauren and Josh’s winter cabin surprise vow renewal at Creekside Gardens

Rustic Glam Wedding at Riverdale Manor in Lancaster, PAUsing elements of natural beauty that could be found in the surrounding area of this rural venue, with touches of class and whimsy. The space is absolutely amazing and was the central point for the design, being that their gift shop is modeled after an actual cabin!

The inspiration of Winter Solstice and setting intentions for the upcoming year fell perfectly into place when choosing our Styled Elopement date.

Our model couple, being husband and wife (as well as Lauren holding a Lead Planner position with Every Little Thing, LLC) made bringing the vision together so easy. Speaking with our model groom, Josh, prior to the event, we discussed making it into a SURPRISE VOW RENEWAL! The disbelief and excitement on Lauren’s face when she realized was the highlight of the shoot (next to the alpacas).

Lauren and Josh were the only couple envisioned for this shoot when planning out the design. They encompassed all of the elements of the look, personality, and vibe. Adding in the vow renewal made it even more special.

Working with ELT since we started back in 2015, Lauren has seen her share of things at weddings, but never an alpaca. To say she was psyched would be an understatement! The couple snuggled up with them so comfortably and it added a unique piece to the shoot.

Additionally, I wanted the shoot to include all female owned/operated businesses to showcase the wealth of talent in our region.
