As soon as we started wedding planning, I knew I couldn't imagine anyone else designing our invitations. Mainly because I would have driven them absolutely insane with my particularity! And the thought of taking this on, on top of planning, sounded like a lot of pressure. But luckily, my fiancé and I had a very clear idea of what we wanted our wedding to be. We both envisioned a relaxed backyard wedding that was more party than wedding. A celebration of love with family and friends.
And it was important to us that our invitations clearly conveyed this idea. Because with the word "wedding" comes lots of expectations. And we wanted our guests to expect nothing but a good time!
So we named the event SchennellyFest, and held it at a beautiful old bed and breakfast called The Woolverton Inn, which is located in Stockton, New Jersey—right outside of New Hope, Pennsylvania.
We planned for non-stop music, coolers of beer, and yard games. No church, no cummerbunds, no cake.
What?! No cake, you say?! See. Expectations!
Well, we think the invitations accomplished their mission because our guests came ready to party, dance, and definitely ready to enjoy the Mister Softee truck that made a guest appearance. So thank you to them, our venue, and our vendors for making the day everything we hoped it would be.
And thank you for reading. I hope you enjoy the photos below! More to come on Facebook in Instagram.
