Are you gearing up for the holidays + surrounding yourself with all sorts of cozy things? Perhaps you’re counting down the days until *that* Christmas party, or even prepping for the New Year… There’s something magical about this season, isn’t there? When everyone comes to gather, everything seems to be gilded (or frosted!), and there’s no shortage of merriment. For those reasons (and more), we totally understand why one would want to have a holiday wedding!
Think of this as a glam + gilded version of your favorite Christmas party…only better! Yep, taking place at Fonthill Castle in the Historic District of Doylestown, Pennsylvania, Delaney Dobson Photography is bringing us this gorgeous Christmas wedding editorial, with inspiration drawn from the early 20th century and all its opulence.
Without further ado, the advent, I mean, event, begins now!

The Historic Reception Space

Could you ask for anything more magical?! And for those curious about the castle backdrop, Fonthill Castle is a museum built by an archeologist between 1908-1912. It once served as his home, as well as a place to display his treasures, including a large collection of tiles + prints.
Happy holidays, folks!!
