With the mid-Summer heat beating down on us, it seems appropriate to turn back time to this charming winter wedding! Heather and James hosted a beautifully rustic affair at a gorgeous Pennsylvania venue that exudes a distinct sense of warmth and welcoming. From the unique Mountain Playhouse to the fanciful Green Gables restaurant, this couple was dedicated to giving their big day a warm log cabin feel. The City Heat wedding band kept Heather and James’ friends and family swaying on the dance floor for the remainder for the night!
The gifted Autumn Stankay at Skysight Photography snapped some stellar pics of this gorgeous big day. As you can see, these gorgeous photos surely created a wedding album that this happy couple will remember forever!
The couples said their “I do’s” at the Mountain Playhouse, a non-profit theater tucked away in Jennerstown. Guests entered through wreath-laden double doors into a glorious theater-like setting, where Heather and James were wed on stage. This space’s dark woods, old world chandeliers, and giant gear adornments were complemented by the couple’s Christmasy decor.
The party continued at the adjoining Green Gables Restaurant, a luminous space that perfectly combines timeless elegance with whimsical woodsiness that is ideal for a winter wedding. Teresa Marafino, the restaurant’s talented event planner, painstakingly arranged the space’s singular decor to create a gorgeous lodge-like atmosphere dripping with luminous string lights and seasonal evergreens. Everyone enjoyed a delectable meal on bright red table cloths that were reminiscent of Christmas. Near the end of dinner, guests indulged in the decadent hot chocolate bar with all the sweet fixings that make the holidays one of the most wonderful times of the year!

After sharing a heartwarming first dance beneath the restaurant’s twinkling lights, guests hit the dance floor and celebrated the couple’s union by groovin’ on the dance floor to the music of Pennsylvania’s premier wedding band!
“Each song performed was PERFECT. You kept the night running smoothly and were flexible when timing did not go quiet as planned. You made our wedding so much FUN and I know our guests had a wonderful time because of you.”
