A Floral Fantasy Intimate Wedding at The River House at Odette’s

We are so excited to share this intimate elopement that took place at River House at Odette’s. This new venue, while super convenient to Philadelphia is tucked away in the charming town of New Hope, PA, and it feels like a destination in itself. Here, guests can stay the weekend and take advantage of the property, which features gorgeous water views, bikes, an on-site restaurant and more! 

We love intimate weddings, because while the guest count is low, the style doesn’t need to be compromised. The sunny ceremony took place under and grand weeping willow. Fresh Designs Florist & Shannon Wellington Weddings created a multi-dimensional floral fantasy for the couple to get married within, making the ceremony feel even more intimate. 

Bride and groom portraits on the River House grounds were vibrant and beautiful. The New Hope, PA wedding venue reception space can be easily transformed into an open air ballroom. With a modern but welcoming feel, the space perfectly reflected the summery hues of the table top details. The tiered, pink cake by Groovy Deliciousness was the perfect treat to celebrate with!

This Philadelphia-based team of vendors loved working with bride Gia, who looked stunning in the brand new BHLDN plus line. It’s important to them to showcase brides that represent the national average size of a woman, which is size 16. This is an underserved market, and all brides deserve to see themselves in stunning wedding imagery!

  1. What a romantic wedding location, Magi! What fascinates me about the wedding is the setting. The site provides all of the finest amenities to make your stay comfortable. Still, highlights like the riverfront view and on-site restaurant make your stay memorable and pleasant to attend the wedding ceremony in a relaxed attitude.
