For over a year, I had been looking forward to this wedding. When Dana contacted me last year and told me about her Autumn wedding at a 300 year old estate in Villanova, Pennsylvania, I was giddy. Giddy because I love weddings, giddy because I love autumn, giddy because I love old architecture, giddy because I love the East Coast.

Their wedding did not disappoint.

It was gorgeous, THEY were gorgeous, and the day was even more special as Dana's parents were married at the Appleford Estate 28 years ago.

Dana and Steve, you are so much fun. Thank you for making me feel like part of the family! You were welcoming and wonderful and I wish you all of the wonderful things life has to offer.
xoxo,
Rach
