Kristen and Jeffrey chose Fern Hall Inn as their marriage and wedding reception location. Nestled between Crystal Lake and Elk Mountain this venue offers sweeping vistas and quaint gathering spots alongside the Scottish Glen golf course. The Johnson & Johnson family formerly used this venue as a family cottage.
The Valenches Music company accompanied the bridal party procession into the tented ceremony just outside the Inn. After their vows the couple proceeded to a receiving line on a carpeted area just outside their tent. Cocktails followed with acoustic music by Aaron Bruch and a few accompaniments by DJ Marquis.
Introductions followed as the wedding party flowed into the main tent where Central Park Flowers set a Hawaiian infused floral design set with apricot highlights on each chair. Speeches and a blessing followed as DJ Marquis set the tone with his tunes.
Jimmy Waltich surpised the guests with an accordion solo midway through dinner. The guests experienced one surprise after another as the sky began it’s own performance. We rallied the guests onto the lawn outside the tent for a festive dance against the painted sky.
The night was filled with great joy and love, all wrapped up in one seriously stunning fireworks send-off. Here are some highlights!
