Cairnwood Estate Wedding | Philadelphia PA

Couples everywhere in Philadelphia have favored Elopements and Micro-Weddings all year round over traditional weddings. There’s something beautiful about an intimate ceremony with just you and your close loved ones, friends, and family. Even my husband and I got married in a small church surrounded by immediate family and friends—a micro wedding. So, of course, with Elopements, nothing makes me more comfortable than being able to offer that to future couples.

Faryn and Eric decided to do just that in October. The couple dreamed of getting married inside a castle. Still, with travel restrictions due to COVID-19, they hoped to find a local equivalent. That’s where Cairnwood Estate in Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania comes into play. The location blew me away. A fairytale palace 20 minutes outside of Philly! The hosts were extremely courteous in seeing to both Faryn and Eric’s needs when they arrived.

The area itself had so many photography opportunities that I’m almost sad we didn’t get to stay longer than an hour! Beautiful architecture inside and out, and the entire outdoors was nothing but endless green and autumn foliage. If this area is perfect during the fall, I can’t imagine what it must look like during Spring! I hope to one day have that opportunity should anyone wish to get married at Cairnwood Estate in the future!

After a beautiful session at this castle-like estate, the pair headed back to a local venue where they exchanged vows and celebrated their union amongst family and friends. In the future, the now newlywedded Robinson’s hope to come back around and follow it up with a massive reception so everyone can celebrate. An opportunity I had the pleasure of doing during that same month of this wedding. But before I start to digress, let’s take a moment to appreciate this beautiful venue and session.

Oh, and the dress. Can we get a round of applause for this DRESS? It’s everything. It’s giving radiant and divine bathed in beautiful light. This Philly Elopement is the perfect place for any couple who ever dreamed of wanting to get married in a castle. If you want a castle, you can’t get much closer than Cairnwood.
