Hillary and Sam’s wedding day started at the Cork Factory Hotel in Lancaster, PA where they got ready in separate rooms before sharing first looks at the historic Riverdale Manor, where their ceremony and reception would take place. The venue boasts an 1850’s farm house and a large open air pavilion. Dozens of hurricane candles lined the pavilion’s aisle as Hillary made her way toward Sam, smiling from ear to ear. They exchanged vows under hundreds of twinkle lights beside a rustic wooden arbor covered in sheer white fabric with a lush arrangement of eucalyptus and wildflowers at its corner.
Hillary was radiant in her Claire Pettibone gown with its silk underlay and vintage-inspired lace. The sexy sheer back was an absolute stunner! She finished her look with a loose chignon and sparkling accessories. Her bouquet was a mix of eucalyptus and blush roses with pops of red and protea accents that truly made a statement. Her bridesmaids carried bouquets of greenery featuring several types of eucalyptus, the perfect compliment to their pale gray gowns. Sam and his guys were dapper in gray suits. Sam wore all three pieces and topped off his look with a pale beige tie while his guys went tie-less. Rustic charm and gold accents took center stage at this dreamy wedding creating a moody, romantic feel that we can’t get enough of. Congratulations Hillary and Sam!
