This week is our 10th Wedding Anniversary! Kind of hard to believe! I pulled out the wedding albums for the kids to see. They were pretty interested (and wondered why Mommy’s hair was “yellow”). There were lots of questions as to why they weren’t there! I loaded up a few for your viewing pleasure (try not to laugh at the “yellow” hair).
I just recently saw a post on another design blog and they commented on how they would change their wedding venue and style if they had it to do over again. I would totally disagree with that. Sure there are little things I would change, like the rented tuxedo that Mr. S. was wearing, but otherwise I would pretty much keep it the way it was (minus the stress).
Our wedding was held on the grounds of Fonthill in Bucks County. It is an amazing cast concrete castle with lots of amazing tile cast in. Here is the description from their website:
Built between 1908-1912, Fonthill was the home of Henry Chapman Mercer (1856-1930). Archaeologist, anthropologist, ceramist, scholar and antiquarian, Mercer built Fonthill both as his home and as a showplace for his collection of tiles and prints. The first of three Mercer buildings in Doylestown, Fonthill served as a showplace for Mercer’s famed Moravian tiles that were produced during the American Arts & Crafts Movement. Designed by Mercer, the building is an eclectic mix of Medieval, Gothic, and Byzantine architectural styles, and is significant as an early example of poured reinforced concrete.
Needless to say, it was amazing to be married to such an amazing man at such a beautiful location! Love you Mr. S!
