Nicole and Ed got married at the unique Columcille Megalith Park, Bangor, Pennsylvania, this past September. It was a super fun and intimate outdoor wedding, with a casual and super-fun backyard BBQ reception.
Nicole got ready at Parlor Hair & Makeup Studio in Nazareth, Pennsylvania with her daughter and mother. There was such a calm and relaxed vibe the entire morning. Nicole wore a beautiful gown with a lace bodice and jeweled belt–she looked so incredible!
Ed also had a quiet morning as he got ready at their beautiful Nazareth farmhouse and spent some time taking care of the couple’s farm animals (just wait until you see the sweet pigs!).
The ceremony took place in a clearing at Columcille Megalith Park in Bangor, Pennsylvania. The ceremony area was in the middle of the park, marked by a large stone. It was so unique! The ceremony began with Nicole’s father officiating and finished with the newlyweds being showered with confetti. It was a beautiful ceremony, full of so much love, lots of cheer, and happy tears.
After the ceremony, we did some family photos—I just love getting to meet the closest family members of my couples! The rest of the gang left for a private lunch while we spent some time exploring the park for newlywed portraits of the couple. I got some really special portrait photos as we explored the forest and stone structures of Columcille Megalith Park. The weather was fresh and sunny, it was the perfect start to the fall season!
For the reception, the couple set up an awesome backyard reception with lawn games, a cocktail bar for their guests, and a beautiful spread of catered food which included a pig roast! Everyone had a blast!
There were so many cozy little details from the cornhole area, zipline, axe throwing station, and rustic details. They had an amazing bonfire during the BBQ, which was the perfect spot for guests to get cozy and roast marshmallows from the s’more bar!
The evening ended with fireworks, which was so much fun – everyone “ohh’d” and “ahh’d” over the awesome display! The whole wedding was so much fun, from the woodland ceremony to the fire pit and fireworks in the evening.
I loved this intimate Columcille Megalith Park ceremony and Nazareth backyard reception wedding so much!
I hope you love taking a peek at Ed and Nicole’s special day!
