Pittsburgh Area Farm Wedding Reception

Jennifer and Robert had an intimate wedding ceremony on the island of St. Kitts this past May. Over the July 4th weekend they hosted a lavish reception for their family and friends. It was one of the most beautiful receptions I have ever had the opportunity to attend. Rustic Acres Farm in Volant, Pennsylvania (north of Pittsburgh and a few miles off RT. 79) is a gorgeous location. The staff put together an amazingly intricate party: great food, abundant drinks, friendly staff, and the décor was beyond words. Everywhere you turned the elegance was in the details.

If you have been looking for the perfect Pittsburgh area farm wedding reception this is the location you have been dreaming about – Rustic Acres Farm.

One of the benefits of Facebook is reconnecting with people from your past. Jen is one of those friends. I am glad we have had the opportunity to keep in touch all these years beyond high school and share a glimpse of our lives with each other. It was a JOY to be able to celebrate and capture this day for them.



Isn’t she beautiful? I loved watching them together. They are laughter, love, and fun.



The cake was a colorful, gorgeous summer treat created by the couple’s friend, Anthony Dithomas.

The DJ – Erinn and Eric of Fireside Events LLC – did a fabulous job giving flow to the night. I am super picky when it comes to reception music and they had the perfect combination of oldies and new.  Eric’s (as MC) personality blended so well with the atmosphere of the evening.




Their rings… swoon. I love how they compliment each other.

Rob has been a fireman for more than a decade so this American flag (from his company) hung on the inside of the barn wall right over the dance floor – was a touching representation of his work and passion.
