A Norwegian-Inspired Wedding at Gilfillan Farm in Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania
rn Mary Broadland (27 and a geriatric social worker) and Chris Runevitch (27 and a histotechnologist) got their wedding inspiration from Norwegian rosemaling artwork. "I've always admired the beautiful work of Norwegian rosemaling artists," Mary says. "I wanted to incorporate its vivid color palettes and modern floral lines into our wedding style." As a result, all the stationery for the wedding featured rosemaling patterns, from the escort cards to the table numbers. Even the buttercream cake was decorated with Mary and Chris's initials in a rosemaling crest. To echo the floral design in her look, Mary paired her Chantilly lace mermaid-style dress with a rosy flower crown that looked beautiful with her fishtail-braid hairstyle. She and her bridesmaids also carried loose pastel bouquets that reflected the rosemaling aesthetic. The bridesmaids wore different dresses in the colors of the wedding's rosemaling print. After a tree-planting unity ceremony, Mary and Chris took the celebration to a nearby tent at Gilfillan Farm in Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania. It was decorated with warm string lights and low cascading flower arrangements. For a yummy end to a beautiful day, Mary and Chris served an array of sweets with everything from peanut butter pile-ups to chocolate-covered marshmallows.
