Cairnwood Estate Wedding // Sam & Ty

Get ready to be swept away by the beauty and romance of Samantha and Ty’s enchanting wedding at Cairnwood Estate in Bryn Athyn, PA! This intimate Cairnwood Estate wedding was an absolute dream! With beautiful florals and fun energy throughout the day, I loved everything!


Floral Design:

As I arrived at the estate, my eyes were immediately captivated by the awe-inspiring front doors, adorned with a large floral installation. The flowers draped all the way from the balcony! The delicate blooms, by Intrigue Designs, brought an air of elegance that set the tone for the entire day.

The Floral Staircase at Cairnwood:

Walking through the venue, you can’t help but be mesmerized by the main staircase. Just look at the incredible cascading florals created by the talented team at Blomst Floral Design. It was like a floral fairytale unfolding before my eyes!

Reception Space:

Champagne Tower & Details:

Oh, and let’s not forget the delightful surprise awaiting us outside—the magnificent champagne tower overlooking a picturesque scene. I love champagne towers as an addition to cake cutting! It is such a fun element to incorporate into your wedding reception.

Bride & Groom at Cairnwood Estate:

Now, let’s talk about the stars of the day—Samantha and Ty, the beautiful bride and groom. Samantha, an embodiment of grace and charm, wore a gown that left everyone breathless. Its intricate floral lace sleeves and corset back added a touch of romance and whimsy to her already radiant presence. Ty, on the other hand, looked dapper as always!
