Old-world romance at Cairnwood Estate

If you’re a lover of old-world romance and classic garden inspiration, then keep scrolling, friend! From the incredible floral installation in front of Cairnwood Estate, to the romantic hand-painted cake, to the opulent estate table, each aspect of this wedding day was a joy to capture.

Conveniently located just outside Philadelphia, Cairnwood is a Gilded Age Estate filled with decorative elements. Their stunning European architecture and meticulously kept gardens will forever have my heart. I can’t wait to return and photograph more beautiful memories here!
