Summer Wedding Ideas

Summer is the most popular season for weddings.  Beautiful weather and sunshine allowing you to capture your very special moments to last a life time.  Experiencing your dream day at an outdoor venue is one of the most attractive parts of a summer wedding. Here at Lippincott Manor our grounds are in full bloom with dazzling views of wild flowers, open fields complete with mountainous views.  Let’s not forget to mention the brilliant river scenery and full green trees coming into season.

As your guests arrive for your beautiful ceremony to come, consider placing a refreshing beverage station that your friends and family will pass on their way in.  This has become quite popular for a summer wedding.  Beverages such as tea’s or lemonade, or even an infused water.  While guests are taking their seats it may be beneficial for them to have a cool tasty drink in the hot summer heat.

While the summer weather is gorgeous the sun can be awfully bright, and you want nothing to dull your shine on YOUR big day.  A great idea would be to set up a bin of sunglasses for your guests to shade their eyes from the bright daylight during your ceremony, and their tears.  Allowing everyone to take in your beauty and the gorgeous  atmosphere of the day that has brought them all together.

As your ceremony concludes and you and your guests part ways for a short time before you are introduced as the new Mr. & Mrs, think of all the moments your guests are capturing on their phones or cameras.  Photos of your friends and family, photos of your fabulous wedding decor, your table settings and linens.  This may be a fitting time to consider small photo props that your guests can have fun with while snapping away eagerly awaiting your arrival!

Explore the bright popular colors of summer when choosing a color theme! Such as beautiful pinks and fucshia’s, golds and sky blues.  Citrus colors such as tangerine and yellows, even aqua and pale lilac!  The possibilities when choosing color a theme for a summer wedding are seemingly endless.  The summer season offers beautiful flowers to choose from with pops of bright colors.  To name a few popular flowers in season there is the classic sun flower so bright and beautiful, freesia’s and stocks in breath taking purples just to name a few.

Dreams Come True, a Cinderella Wedding

The Lippincott Manor has a reputation of being a smaller venue, slightly off the beaten path with beautiful Hudson Valley views and amazing service. The biggest perk of using a smaller venue host your wedding is the attention that you can be given at these one-event-per-day venues. While there are other venues that boast the same type of scheduling plan, the Lippincott Manor takes pride in the individual attention and customization that they give to each and every wedding that is hosted on their grounds.

Customization is key when considering how to make your wedding day the most memorable. For most girls, they imagine growing up to have a wedding where they wear a big, beautiful dress on one of the most beautiful and special days of their lives. Looking up to their childhood icon, the princess, many brides look for the Cinderella — or Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Ariel, or Jasmine (hey, every girl has their favorite) —  princess dress. Some brides may even go as far as recreating the beloved fairy tale for their day.

Last week’s wedding at Lippincott Manor, united Jennifer and Jamie Crabtree with the wedding that the bride always dreamed of and the owner of Lippincott Manor, Tricia Van Dyk, served as fairy godmother, when she created this Cinderella-inspired event. Carried in by a horse-drawn carriage the princess had married her prince in a day that only dreams are made of. Set alongside the beautiful views of the Hudson Valley on a gorgeous spring day, the event was picture perfect for the royalty-inspired wedding.

So whatever your dreams are, the Lippincott Manor will try to recreate them for your day. And they can guarantee that at midnight,  there will be no pumpkins.
