Serendipity Garden Wedding

Apple orchards, winding roads and small town generosity. Serendipity Gardens is less than an hours drive from the city bustle but a world away




Marnee and Dillon’s wedding tells a charming story of the bride’s Scotch-Irish heritage and the couple’s shared love of homemade pie, dinosaurs, and Star Wars!


Serendipity Gardens is surrounded by charming vintage farms that made the couple’s vintage Pontiac look right at home.

On the edge of a pine forest in a quaint apple orchard, Marnee and Dillon had a private First Look before the ceremony.

The couple exchanged vows on a deck, perched on the hillside with a breathtaking view of the valley. Guests enjoyed cocktails under the shady canopy of trees, adorned with shimmering chandeliers that hung from the tree limbs above. Followed by dinner and dancing under an open tent. Tartan plaid and scotch-Irish details represented the couples family lines. The highlight of the evening was a surprise performance by the couple for their guests. Fans of Star Wars, Marnee and Dillon planned a lightsaber duel that was pulled off with perfection! The skit ends when Darth Vader enters the room threatening the couple. The couple, frozen in fear, drop their weapons and reach out for one another and miraculously, the power of their love brings Darth Vader to his knees. The crowd went absolutely wild with cheers and applause.

Guests enjoyed the music and dancing. Between dancing guests could relax around the open fire pit to gaze the starry night and enjoy s’mores!

The celebration ended with a cheering, sparkler send-off. It was definitely a night to remember!

Hats off to the creative team that helped to bring the couple’s vision to life:
