Accomac Events had the pleasure of catering and designing this beautiful winter wedding! The wedding was held at the National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The top of the steps in the gorgeous rotunda served as a dramatic ceremony area and the reception followed in the museum’s ballroom.
Here are some fantastic photos by The Susquehanna Photographic:
Accomac Events’ in-house designer, Charlene, designed the crystal curtain that hung below the bride & groom during the ceremony, which set the tone for the winter wonderland decor. Sculptural “trees” with hanging crystal garland were placed around the ballroom. Baby’s breath and dangling silver pinecones topped tall, illuminated vases as centerpieces (provided by Wildflowers by Design). Royal blue napkins decorated tables covered in light blue linens with sparkly silver overlays. Cylinders of pinecones and silver ribbon were used as buffet decor to tie-in the winter theme. Ceremony and reception lighting provided by Eslinger Lighting, transformed the rooms to feel like a winter sunset.
The menu featured action stations named after places that played a role in the bride and grooms’ lives, including their hometowns. Both the bride and groom are gluten free, so we built an entirely celiac-friendly menu that featured seasonal fare like butternut squash soup sippers and roasted root vegetables. The menu was “comfort-food” heavy with mini-meatloaf muffin hors d’oeuvres, a risotto bar, and pasta bar.
The night concluded with a hot chocolate and coffee bar complete with various delicious toppings, as well as a late night snack of Smitty’s soft pretzel bites and fruit kebabs.
Congrats Valerie and Mak and thank you for letting us share in your special day!
