A Vintage Wedding at the Pine Barn Inn in Danville, Pennsylvania

Inspired by the antique decor that filled Emily Cole’s (27 and a server) parents’ home, she and Christopher Cole (27 and a physician) had this vintage wedding that was covered with handpicked details. After months of planning from 500 miles away, they started the reception with an actual trolley ride to the Pine Barn Inn in Danville, Pennsylvania. Their 150 guests sat at tables designed by the Details Matter, their florist. Vintage dinnerware, books, teacups, binoculars and pearls, which were collected by Emily and her mother, accented every place setting. The decor even matched their antique-style globe guest book and DIY table numbers. But it didn't end there. Emily and Chris also wanted to incorporate their new home in North Carolina, so they finished the night with a dessert bar of North Carolina-based Krispy Kreme doughnuts on vintage-inspired tiers. “Seriously, who doesn't love doughnuts?” Emily says. Catch these details and much more, captured by Allie Skylar Photography, below.

From the beginning of the day, Emily and her bridesmaids made sure they had fun. Decked out in matching navy and fuchsia floral robes from Etsy, they sipped mimosas and snagged a few group photos with Allie Skylar Photography. After they got ready with chic down and updo hairstyles from Elite Hair Color and Designs, Mariah Rodriguez, from Makeup By Roxy, finished their classic beauty looks.
While Emily picked out the navy chiffon, knee-length dresses, her bridesmaids chose the style. They changed things up with personalized necklines ranging from one-shoulder to halter and tied it all together with a string of pearls. Their glam hairstyles by Elite Hair Color and Designs only enhanced the look.
Chris matched Emily’s ivory lace trumpet-style dress with an equally chic look. He picked out a gray Calvin Klein suit from Men’s Wearhouse and a navy tie to bring in their wedding color.

Thomas and Elliot Hoy from the Details Matter took pictures of Emily and her bridesmaids and made vintage-inspired bouquets. Emily's arrangement was filled with spray roses (one of her favorite flowers). Ivory spray roses were set in between mauve roses, then surrounded by a halo of eucalyptus for a refined twist on a natural arrangement.
Even their transportation was vintage. While guests flocked to the Pine Barn Inn in Danville, Pennsylvania, Emily, Chris and their wedding party rode to the reception in a vintage trolley car with Allie Skylar Photography. The groomsmen were dressed to impress in gray suits from Men’s Wearhouse and navy ties that perfectly matched the bridesmaid dresses.
Their globe guest book followed every milestone of their relationship and beyond. “We met in undergraduate school at the University of Pittsburgh, got engaged in Ireland and have settled in North Carolina,” Emily says. “Chris is in the Army, so our future plans are still up in the air. But we liked the idea behind the globe because we would go to the ends of the earth for each other.” Their guests became a part of their story as they signed a name or piece of advice across the globe. Those who wanted to leave a longer message were welcomed to write away in an old dictionary.
While Emily and her bridesmaids were getting ready, the team at the Details Matter took care of all the centerpieces. Every vintage book, dinnerware and accent that Emily and her mother had tirelessly gathered over the months of their engagement were spread across the tables, bringing out that vintage vibe. DIY navy book page-inspired table numbers in bold frames tied everything together.
Emily and Chris wanted to bring their new home in North Carolina to the wedding, so they had sweet treats that started in the state: Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Ten types of doughnuts with different fillings, frostings and toppers were stacked on tiers, vintage crates and more from Forget-Me-Knot Vintage Rentals. Guests were invited to munch and take a few home as wedding favors.

“It was a masterpiece,” Emily says. “The three-tier cake that Tracey Wilson, from Wilson's Tracey-Cakes, designed for us was absolutely breathtaking and exactly what I envisioned.” Covered in buttercream frosting, each layer of vanilla, chocolate or lemon cake was separated by raspberry or mocha filling. Cascading mauve and ivory roses even extended past the base into a pool of roses at the head of the table. Its added leaves were accented by hunter green ribbon wrapped around the confection.
