Inspiration Spotlight: Patriotic Themes

Happy Memorial Day! In honor of this great holiday, we have put together an Inspiration Spotlight on patriotic weddings. Many of those that are serving our country are also getting married and we couldn’t be prouder. Lippincott Manor has been honoring the military in any way that they can — by working to give each couple their dream wedding and by offering a free ceremony for any military wedding. This year’s Memorial Day weekend wedding united two West Point graduates. A military love story, the couple had both graduated from West Point on Saturday and on Tuesday, they were married.

Red, white and blue. Often times this patriotic palette is used at military weddings to honor their life commitments, but are also being used by brides that love their country. Are you having a July 4 wedding? This theme is a great way to honor the holiday and have your special day. Incorporating the red, white, and blue color scheme into your wedding shows your spirit, but also creates a great celebration atmosphere.

These colors can be worked into many decorative aspects of your wedding. Bridesmaids can be outfitted and accessorized in these patriotic colors, or the bride can hide a pop of patriotism with a pair of bold shoes or even a red, white, and blue garter belt. For your decor, flowers can easily be found in these three colors and create, beautiful bouquets and airy centerpieces that set the spirit for the day. Place settings can also incorporate this theme–even using just two of the colors tones down the decor and adds a sophisticated touch to the palette.

As a final tip, don’t forget the flag! Around your reception or at your ceremony have flags on hand for guests to have and wave proudly, because it is this piece of American pride that has inspired the look of your day.

…And the Season Opens with a Military Wedding

The Lippincott Manor has officially opened for the season with the celebration of Ashley and Matt!

Being a military wife or bride is not a role that is known to be easy. With looming deployment dates and the stresses of managing a life with extraordinary circumstances, it seems that time is always of the essence for those that share this lifestyle. To honor, protect, and serve our country, the U.S. Armed forces is full of young men and women from across the country that have enlisted to preserve the rights of the American citizen and that have sacrificed the common comforts of the average citizen.

When given the chance, the Lippincott Manor takes the opportunity to honor and serve those that have done the same for us. Offering special packages and any accommodations necessary, Tricia and Marty Van Dyk of the Lippincott Manor take pride in the duties that they can handle when bringing a special couple with special circumstances.

The 2013 season kicked off last Friday, April 19, and was a beautiful night celebrated and enjoyed by all that attended and helped out. The bride and groom had much to say about the memories that their special day has given them to cherish:

We wanted to take the time to say how wonderful these two people [Marty and Tricia Van Dyk] are and the business they run. They have been part of the wedding business for the past eight years and they know what they are doing. Our wedding was Friday April 19, 2013 and we had the pleasure of opening their season.

We are a military family and they were the only venue that worked with us in regards to possible deployment. They were extremely understanding and cooperative throughout the entire process; from picking the venue all the way to the end of our night.

Their staff was amazing, from cleaning prior to the event to working it the day of. They were nice, prompt, and helpful. The food for the event was phenomenal and our guests are still raving over it. They made sure they had food for the children along with what we had chosen for our menu.
Marty takes care of the property personally which overlooks the mountains and the Wallkill River. They are constantly looking for ways to improve their venue and take the ideas of their past and future couples. We truly believe that our day was as perfect as it was because of Tricia and Marty.

Thank you for being a part of our big day and it will always be remembered by our friends and family.
