Strawberry Hill Mansion at Baldplate Mountain Wedding – Fabienne & John

On this beautiful summer day, Fabienne and John chose to vow their love to each other in front of close friends and family in the gorgeous Roman Catholic Church, St. John the Evangelist. The party then started at the historic Strawberry Hill Mansion at Baldplate Mountain in Titusville, NJ. Not only does this location boast beautiful gardens but it has impressive views and majestic grounds – perfect for the DIY bride that Fabienne is! With her graphic design background, she was able to design and print her own save the dates, invitations, table numbers, etc. She had custom made details like her cake topper that she special ordered from a story on Etsy, MelaboWed.

Fabienne and John decided to have a custom playlist, and which was created by John and mc’d by Fabienne’s sister in law. It was very well done and kept the party going! Strawberry Hill Mansion at Baldplate allows you to bring in your own caterers. Of course, they wanted to have everything that their guests would enjoy, so they had beer and wine from Little Brothers outlet in Flemington, and the food was from Pennington Quality Market. Everything was hand-picked to their tastes. Their cake and all of the fantastic desserts were from Wildflour Cafe in Lawrenceville. Their wedding bands were from Overstock and Blue Nile, but her beautiful rose gold and morganite custom made engagement ring was designed by John and came from The Gem Vault in Flemington. All other jewellery was from Charming Charlie. Hair and makeup were done at Metropolis Salon and Spa in Princeton, Nicole Cyrese Eventoff is her favourite stylist there, and she did her wedding day hair. Fabienne’s shoes were from DSW, and Flowers and boutonnieres were custom made by the bride herself. Table arrangements were also created by Fabienne, and her mother collected the vases and milk glasses from estate sales because she just knew it would be the perfect finishing touch! Fabienne and her bridesmaids’ dresses came from Davids Bridal, and John and his groomsmen got their suits from JC Penny, and their ties were from Macy’s.

All in all, this was the ultimate DIY wedding!
