Real Wedding


As Valentine’s Day sweeps across our hearts, it’s the perfect time to reminisce about the love stories that have graced our lives, including that of Melissa and Richard—a radiant couple whose September wedding was a highlight of our year.

Their love story spans back eight years, a journey that began in high school but truly blossomed during their college years. It was during a weekend getaway to Pennsylvania, amidst the serene beauty of nature, that Richard chose to pop the question. With the sound of a waterfall as their witness, he asked Melissa to be his forever, sealing their love amidst the majesty of the outdoors.

When it came time to choose a venue for their wedding, Gilbertsville Farmhouse beckoned to them with its rustic charm and idyllic setting. It was the first and only venue they visited, but it captured their hearts instantly—a testament to the magic and allure of this enchanting space.
