On Sunday we were at Succop Nature Park in Butler Pennsylvania. The event was an outdoor wedding ceremony and wedding reception for Rachel and Anthony. Rachel and Anthony were married in front of the Marcraig House at Succop Nature Park. Guests began arriving at Succop Nature Park at 2:00 pm where we provided prelude music prior to the start of the wedding ceremony. The ceremony started promptly at 2:30 pm and was presided over by the father of the groom Pastor Timothy Silker.
After a 20 minute ceremony, guests transitioned to the rear of the Marcraig House where they enjoyed cocktails and appetizers as the bridal party posed for photographs with Graham of Graham Buss Photography. At 4:30 pm we formally introduced the bridal party into the event pavilion and then toasts were offered by the best man and matron of honor prior to dinner. Dinner was prepared by the culinary staff at Medure’s Catering and was served buffet style.
After dinner, Rachel and Tony shared in their first dance together as husband and wife to the song The Man In Me by Bob Dylan. Next, the newlyweds danced with the bridal party and then Rachel danced with her father and Tony danced with his mother before we opened up the dance floor. Throughout the remainder of the evening, guests danced to the sounds of DJ Pifemaster until the wedding reception ended at 8:00 pm.
