A Modern, Natural Wedding at the Candy Factory in Lancaster, Pennsylvania
Janelle Siegrist (28 and a dessert table stylist/owner of LeeMaeMarie) and Christian Herr (33 and an artist) wanted every part of their wedding to reflect them, so they created an ultra-custom affair in about five months. “Both Christian and I are very creative and we wanted to make sure our wedding was unique,” Janelle says. The day began with two ceremonies. After a romantic first look among the trees in Lancaster County Central Park in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, they had a quick ceremony presided over by her grandfather. Then they did it all over again at the Candy Factory with all their friends and family. “It was officiated by the friend who brought Christian and me together, Dan Ricca,” Janelle says. “He wrote a custom ceremony that truly reflected us as a couple, with our humor and significant details about our relationship.” Their ceremony was held in front of the reception space, so guests could grab their seat and DIY escort card before the wedding even started. Since the venue was an urban space with white brick walls and blue industrial ceilings, Janelle and Chris had free rein to make it their own. Every piece of decor continued the natural vibe of their first location with garland and kumquats along the walls, low Queen Anne’s lace tablescabes and a greenery-accented DIY dessert table.
