914 Baltimore Pike, Glen Mills, Pennsylvania, United States
It’s not every day we see a wedding venue that’s got practically all the décor you need already built in, but the historic nursery at Terrain blends farmhouse, gardens and shop together in a way that’s charming and bespoke. This recent wedding, photographed by Lauren Fair, captures the Pennsylvania venue at its best and we just had to get the scoop.
A venue owned by the brand behind Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, Free People and BHLDN, Terrain takes the notion of a garden party to an all new level of lovely. More below about how the couple made the countryside venue feel like their own.
What makes Terrain ideal for events?
The grounds at Terrain in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania make for one dreamy setting… From the restored barn, their outdoor wedding temple, to all the seasonal florals! When Cassi and Eric saw it, they knew it would be PERFECT for the timeless feeling they wanted their wedding to have.
Did the couple incorporate anything special into the day?
Upon booking Terrain as the venue, Cassi immediately started looking for an antique crystal chandelier — she found one on Etsy! — and it ended up being the first piece they purchased for the wedding.
From the bride, Cassi:
We basically worked the rest of the decor and color palette around the chandelier, not really even knowing it at first. It was perfect, and now we’ll always have it as an heirloom from that day.
When we first started planning with designer, Oleander Curated, we all agreed that the actual wedding ceremony should be about us, and for us. I think for awhile, wedding ceremonies were getting the cheap end of the deal, and couples focused too much on the party afterwards. Eric and I had been together for almost 7 years already, so that step we were taking, meant a lot to us, and we really wanted it to feel that way.
