Tara and Casey in New Hope, PA

The evening ceremony at HollyHedge Estate was meant to be held outdoors but was moved into the site’s quaint, rustic stone barn at the last minute because of rain. An unexpected blackout led to the couple saying their vows by candlelight: “After the fact, we were told that many of our guests thought the candlelight was intended, and that it made for a romantic setting,” says the bride. Casey and Tara chose a reading known as “The Hands Ceremony,” since Tara has always loved Casey’s hands. “They are so rugged and strong yet make me feel very safe,” she says.
