An Enchanting Wedding at a Castle: Anna + David

green and white bouquet

Anna + David held a large yet laid back wedding in upstate NY. They wanted their day to be like an enchanted forest and as soon as they found the Osborne Castle in Cold Springs New York, they were sold! To keep with their enchanted forest theme, their decor was a focus on natural, refined + rustic elements. Anna works as Refinery 29‘s director of marketing and has stunning style – I especially love her Selia Yang gown! Other fun details from their day include: wedding Mad Libs for guest to fill out, escort cards held by chess pieces (reflecting Anna’s family of chess players) and a family style dinner. Big thanks to Heather Waraksa for the gorgeous photos!

Our Favorite Memory From The Wedding

Probably the terrifying moment right before you are about to walk down the aisle and then seeing Dave's face and feeling like it's all going to be ok. That and the father/daughter dance.
