A Garden-Style, DIY Wedding at Anthony Wayne House in Paoli, Pennsylvania

Lauren Clark (26 and a nutrition teacher) and Paul Dale’s (30 and a teacher) vintage, garden-style wedding proves "less is more" in all the best ways. Equipped with help from their friends and family, the couple designed just enough decor to personalize the day. Their ceremony backdrop, centerpieces and wedding cake topper especially showed this. It all started with the outdoor ceremony at Anthony Wayne House in Paoli, Pennsylvania. Just a friend’s dream catcher and the venue’s pergola served as their main accents, so there were no distracting elements to prevent guests from enjoying the community-based nuptials. Inside the reception tent, each wooden table had a short lace runner and wildflower centerpieces in glass bottles. The mixture of natural accents were well suited against their natural backdrop and made the scene feel even more open. Lauren and Paul's all-white wedding cake was just as simple and sweet. They topped the three buttercream layers with a pair of foxes dressed in formalwear. Lightbloom Photography captured this whimsical detail and every other highlight, below. “We definitely have our own style,” Lauren says. “We were never uncomfortable choosing design elements, because we just wanted it to reflect what we saw as beauty: Our life is a beautiful adventure.”
