A Romantic Spring Wedding at John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove in Audubon, Pennsylvania
Nelly Ward (32 and a lawyer) and Fred Merkel's (47 and a managing director in capital markets) wedding was inspired by spring, their favorite season. "It's such a joyful time, as everything is bursting into life," Nelly says. The celebration was held at John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove in Audubon, Pennsylvania. A palette of greens and pinks reflected the shades of green popping into life in April and May and the cherry blossoms and dogwoods blooming all over Pennsylvania in the spring. Dogwoods were a recurring motif, with the flower pattern in many design elements, like the invitation suite. After a delicious dinner and dessert of devil's food cake accompanied by wacky ice cream flavors (like everything bagel and earl grey sriracha) from Little Baby's Ice Cream, guests were given custom-made Frisbee favors, a nod to how Nelly and Fred met playing Ultimate Frisbee.
