We kicked off the 2013 wedding season with Allison & Dan's rustic farmhouse wedding at the gorgeous Duportail House. This restored colonial farmhouse near Valley Forge Park was the perfect setting for this laid-back couple. They held their late-afternoon spring wedding ceremony on the front porch, where the home's distinctive archway created a beautiful frame. Allison's younger brother served as the officient, and in lieu of toasts or ceremony readings, the best man and maid of honor shared advice on marriage.
The pale green and pink wedding colors were a perfect compliment for this spring wedding. The groom and groomsmen simply wore vests instead of jackets, and the guest were encouraged to enjoy a beer so everyone stayed nice and cool while the bride and groom exchanged their personalized vows.
Allison and Dan are serious tailgaiters, and during cocktail hour and the reception, guests got to try out the bride's hand-painted Cornhole boards, plus various other yard games including bocce and croquet. Paired with a smoked, pulled-pork sandwich buffet dinner and s'mores for dessert, the whole day just had a wonderfully relaxed vibe.
Dan & Allison—thanks so much for starting our 2013 season so strong. You guys were so much fun, and I love how many ways you truly made your wedding day personal. You have such lovely families, and it was a pleasure documenting the first day of your married life!
