Rachel and Jordan did it right. They had perfect blue-bird day, golden sunshine and a picturesque venue. Everything was perfect.
Oh, and did I mention that these photos will probably be collector’s items?
“Why”, you ask? Because Rachel and Jordan’s wedding was one of the last weddings there will ever be at The Phipps Mansion. It is now under private ownership. Tim and Scott bought it. Just the two of them. 70+ rooms, 6.5 acres… juuuuuuuust the two of them. They said they wanted enough room for, “… a proper garden.” Really? Two people? If Tim Gill wasn’t such a nice guy with the rest of his money (The Gill Foundation has given over $162 million to non-profits and charities), I would be saying “really” a lot more times.
I mean, you could seriously have a fight with your significant other and never see them again, because you’d each have a wing bigger than most luxury homes. But I digress.
Rachel and Jordan’s wedding was the perfect ending to this mansion’s storied career as a wedding venue. I hope our photos drive other brides-to-be mad with jealousy because photos like these, at this venue, will never… happen… again. Missed that ship, sister. Better pick a different, one-of-a-kind mansion/wedding venue. Can’t have this one: it’s Tim and Scott’s now.
