Paige and Scott’s Classic December Wedding

Winter weddings are some of our favorites! :)

Paige and Scott met in December 2013 so it was only fitting to have a December wedding to signify their relationship.

The ceremony was held in the Mansion Sunroom in front of the beautiful stone fireplace.  Details of various greenery and pine cones gave the estate a cozy wintry feel.  The Appalachian Ballroom was decked out in some of our winter wedding favorites:  centerpieces of romantic candlelight, fresh greens, white flowers and gold accents.  Paige and her Mother found vintage windows that they hinged together for a unique escort card display that was enhanced with fresh greenery garland and swags.

But our favorite detail yet had to be Paige and Scott’s dessert table featuring five different cakes that guests could choose from.  Yes, you are seeing that right, one was dripping with caramel!  :)

Congratulations, Paige and Scott!  Thank you for letting us be a part of your special winter wedding at Linwood Estate!

Elyse and Brian’s Elegant September Wedding

Elyse and Brian could not have picked a better day in September to have their wedding at Linwood Estate; the sun was shining and there was not a cloud in sight!

Prior to dating, this fun and adventurous couple were actually neighbors in New York for three years – it is safe to say that Brian fell in love with the girl next door!  :)

Elyse and Brian’s ceremony took place in front of the mansion where the sun helped capture the beauty of their, “I do’s.”  We adored the unique touch of the bridesmaids wearing different styles of ivory dresses.  The ivory color complemented well with the burgundy flowers in their bouquets as well as the groomsmen’s boutonnieres.

After the ceremony, guests gathered outside on the Blue Mountain Terrace for cocktail hour.  The reception was held in the Appalachian Ballroom where the ivory, burgundy, and gold colors continued.  Gorgeous flower arrangements were on the tables as well as elegant candle holders dressed with pearls.

Their late night cookie and dessert display was a major hit with guests who could snag a sweet treat then head back to the packed dance floor!

Congratulations, Elyse and Brian!  We are so grateful for being a part of your big day!

Just Got Engaged- Now What?

CONGRATULATIONS!  You’re getting married!  Everyone dreams of this day of finding their perfect person, and the time has come for you!  This is such a happy and exciting time for you and your fiancé…but where do you start with the wedding planning?!  These next four tips will hopefully get ideas flowing and help start your planning process:

 

CELEBRATE!

Sounds pretty easy, right?  As much as you will want to let the whole world know by telling family, friends, and posting on social media; take a moment with your new fiancé!  You will get so caught up in wedding planning soon so savor this time together before life gets busy.

Celebrating your engagement also means sharing the news.  After taking that moment together, SHARE! SHARE! SHARE!  Tell your parents first, then other family, and close friends.  Some couples like to throw engagement parties as well.  This can be a fun way to bring people together to share the big news and new journey in your life.

|Keep in mind: everyone invited to your engagement party should also be invited to the wedding|

SET A BUDGET

Before you can book a venue, photographer, DJ, and any other wedding decisions, you and your fiancé need to figure out what you have to spend and if families will help contribute.  Be sure that the both of you are in agreement about your priorities in what you are wanting in your special day.  It may also help to do some research on various vendors and venues to know the types of prices you may potentially be working with incase a budget needs to be raised or lowered.

GUEST LIST

Once a budget is set, figure out who you are going to invite to help celebrate your special day.  Be realistic about the number of guests to avoid stress later. Your budget and venue size are the main factors that play into this decision.  Make some cutting rules and actually follow them.  Some rules could be: “Would you invite this guest over for dinner?” or “Have you have talked/seen this guest within the past year?”  Use your answers to confirm if they make the list or not.

THINK ABOUT THE BIG PICTURE

Envision the type of wedding both you and your fiancé want.  Even if you are set on a certain style, such as a formal wedding, consider the possibilities to help either change your mind or solidify your choice.  There are so many possibilities out there so let your imagination run free!

4 Tips on Planning Your Corporate Holiday Party

The season of holiday cheer is just around the corner!

With a busy schedule ahead, it’s time to start thinking about the steps in planning your corporate holiday party.  The holiday season is a great time of year where you and your fellow employees relax, have fun, and get to know each other better. A holiday party also creates the perfect opportunity to reflect on the past year’s accomplishments and to thank your team for a job well done.

Thinking about where to start can be confusing and require a hefty amount of planning. We put together a list of planning tips to help get you started on creating a rave-worthy holiday party this year!

  1. Choose the Date
  2. Secure a Venue
  3. Menu Selection
  4. Personalize & Entertain

1.) Choose the Date

The first step to consider is setting a date for your event. Do you want this celebration to be a Christmas party or a party to celebrate all winter holidays? Make sure to plan the event in between the holiday dates such as Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa.

It is also never too early to plan the event! You would want to do this far in advance to let your employees know to keep their schedules cleared for the celebration.

Weekend holiday celebrations can be popular, but don’t dismiss the benefits of reduced rates for a midweek party option!

Linwood Estate is offering special holiday rates for 2016 corporate holiday parties!

2.) Secure a Venue

Once a date is chosen, it’s time to choose a venue!

Parties held at the office can be convenient, however changing the scenery from the day-to-day environment can spark a new sense of celebration for you and your coworkers.  From something inviting and cozy to a modern winter wonderland design, venues can really set the tone for the event.

When researching holiday venues, think about the size of your party and who will be in attendance. If there is a large amount of employees plus their family members, you will want to consider a large ballroom or conference room. Estates, hotels, and industrial venues are the best places to start your search.

Linwood Estate offers multiple locations fit for sparking holiday cheer. From the cozy intimacy of our historic Linwood Mansion to the festive elegance of the Appalachian Ballroom for larger guest counts – we are ready to deck the halls and create cherished memories with you!

3.) Menu Selection

The most important step is the food selection! Accommodating all guests can be a hard task to achieve. You want to include general selections that connect well with your coworkers, but don’t be afraid to add something interactive and unique! Adding a fun make-your-own s’mores station or flaming donut display for dessert could be the talk of the office for months after!

Be sure to also consider the style of event you are looking to hold. Is this mainly going to be a mix and mingle style? Then passed hors d’oeuvres paired with cocktails could be a great type of menu for you. Thinking of a celebration that will last all night? Starting with a cocktail hour and then sit down plated or buffet meal with dessert to follow could be the route to go for that type of holiday party.

A majority of venues have a preferred catering vendor list or even their own exclusive caterer so be sure to ask for any menu packages they might offer for the holiday season.

Linwood Estate accommodates all guests with our own exclusive Linwood caterer that offers a variety of menu options! See some of our seasonal menus here!

4.) Personalize & Entertain

Don’t forget that this is the time of year to recognize all the hard work that your employees do for the company! Some good ideas to personalize the event is presenting a speech on the achievements of the year, creating giveaway centerpieces for each table, doing a gift exchange, or incorporating a holiday photo booth area.

Adding live entertainment such as a DJ, cover band, or incorporating holiday-themed karaoke offers a festive way for guests to get into the holiday spirit!

Tips to Personalize Your Wedding – Rachel and Brad’s Personalized Perfection May Wedding at Linwood Estate!

Your wedding day is the first day of your future forever together – it is all about YOU!  Finding unique ways to personalize details that showcase your love story is a perfect way to set your day apart.

Rachel and Brad’s May wedding day at Linwood Estate incorporated fun and creative personal touches that we cannot stop swooning over!  We want to share some of their details with you as tips on how you can personalize your wedding day.

For example, as guests entered cocktail hour, they were welcomed with a sign that read:

“Although we have been together for over seven years now, our story begins much earlier and we will explain how. Grab a drink as you walk through the estate, see the shared memories before our first date.”

Rachel and Brad’s love story began in Mrs. Simpson’s 3rd grade classroom where they first met. Throughout school, Rachel and Brad grew up together performing 5th grade plays of, Annie, and making wood shop projects in 7th grade. They presented photos of these moments and even artifacts of projects they made in grade school around the Mansion for guests to discover.  This was a fun way for guests to mix, mingle, and walk through Rachel and Brad’s story of their early years together.

See more inspiration below about how Rachel and Brad showcased special moments in their love story on their wedding day at Linwood Estate:

3 Tips to Consider When Picking Your Wedding Date

Selecting a date to share your, “I do’s” can seem as a daunting task.

Securing a wedding date will be one of the first decisions you and your fiancé will have to make and will become one of the most popular questions you will answer over the course of your engagement. It also impacts every aspect of your wedding day from your theme, your wedding vendor team, fashion choices, and many details. You might have ideas and visions for other aspects for your day, but before your date is selected, you are not able to make the full commitment.

You might be thinking, “Where do I even start in this process?” The best part is, this is completely unique to you and your fiancé. It is different for everyone and should be personal. But to help jumpstart your thoughts on picking a date, we put together 3 tips to consider!

1.)  Create a Vision List

2.)  Off-Season and Off-Date Advantages

3.)  Date Significance

1.) Create a Vision List

Lead your date hunt with a dreaming session. This is where you can embrace all of your childhood imaginations and favorite Pins from your Pinterest Board to create a list of what you want your wedding to feel like. What do you see? A romantic lush rose garden with bright spring skies? A raw industrial factory space with vintage furniture? A historic estate with quintessential mountain views during the peak of fall?

You can write down inspiration words or fully descriptive visions – even add photos to your list! You will begin to see a trend and pick out certain months that allow your vision to come to life.

From this list of selected months, think about your guests and their comfort level during that time. With outdoor venues you may need to consider adding a cushion to your budget for potential event add-ons such as fans to keep guests cool in seasonably hotter months. Feel free to eliminate or change up which months would work best so you now have trigger months that will fit perfectly with your vision and be great for your guest experience too!

At Linwood Estate we have the ability of using multiple indoor, climate-controlled event sites for cocktail hour and the reception in order to keep guests comfortable no matter what season it is!

2.) Off-Season and Off-Date Advantages

Since you might not have known much about the wedding industry before getting engaged, understanding the wedding budget process right out the gate can be overwhelming. We understand the importance of budgeting and your date can offer an advantage to working within a specific budget.

Peak wedding season months of May, June, September, and October typically showcase higher venue and catering costs due to high date demand. This concept is the same for popular Saturday dates. However, considering alternate months such as March, April or December can present your same stunning wedding at a savings. Being flexible with a Friday or Sunday date can offer special prices too. Choosing a date that falls outside of most popular peak season also allows you better opportunity for securing your ideal vendors for your wedding!

Linwood Estate shifted some of its personal event schedule in order to celebrate more weddings in 2016! There are special promotions now being offered for newly booked 2016 weddings.

3.) Date Significance

Now that you have specific months narrowed down, you can begin thinking about any potential days that have meaning to you as a couple. Is there a special family member wedding anniversary you would like to honor? Perhaps a birthday of a loved one who has passed? Considering these options can make your date feel more personal and meaningful to both of you.
