{Lillian & Alex}

Alex and Lillian tied the knot on September 23, 2023, at the enchanting Brick Gables in Lititz, PA. But Mother Nature had her own plans for their big day, sending a hurricane up the East Coast. Fortunately, this dynamic duo had it all covered with both an indoor venue and a charming church ceremony.

They decided to keep the bridal party small, with just a handful of loved ones on each side. But what stole the show were the adorable flower fairies sprinkling their magic. The ceremony took place at the historic Zion German Reformed Church in Brickerville, PA. This church had a special place in their hearts as it held a family connection. The place is so historic that it doesn’t even have electricity or a current congregation!

Thanks to the brilliant wedding planner, Jackie Sauder, everything went off without a hitch. Rain decided to join the party again after the ceremony, but that didn’t dampen the spirits. They took a few portraits under the shelter of the church door and then continued the celebration at Brick Gables.

The reception space got an extra dash of magic with uplighting courtesy of Ryan Miller Entertainment. The highlight of the evening was the bride and groom’s special first dance. They had been secretly practicing a choreography that took their guests by surprise. It kicked off a night filled with heartfelt toasts, delicious dinner, and some serious dancing.

Thanks to all the fabulous vendors who helped make this wedding so amazing!
