Drew & Emily at The Old Mill

Get inspired by this gorgeous local celebration ...

This week, we’re sharing another fave from the fall/winter 2012 issue of Philadelphia Wedding: the beautiful wedding of Emily and Drew Gottenborg at The Old Mill in Rose Valley.

Emily and Drew met when he was her sister’s roommate during a study-abroad semester in Copenhagen, and Emily flew over to visit. They started dating immediately, and four years later, he proposed on the top of Mount Kinabalu on the first night of a one-month vacation in Borneo. They fell in love with the rustic look of The Old Mill, and having grown up around there, Emily knew she wanted the ceremony to be at Swarthmore College’s Scott Outdoor Ampitheater. The celebration featured an outdoor beer garden offering the couple’s favorite beers from everywhere they’d been together, plus Emily’s dad’s own brew made for the event. In the end, everything turned out even more gorgeous than they could have imagined.

Emily found the originally pricey lace Amsale gown she had long wanted at a sample sale at Sabrina Ann in Ardmore. The blooms in her bouquet coordinated with the decor at the reception. Her bracelet is from BHLDN.
