Longwood Gardens

We took a fun trip to Longwood Gardens during our visit with my fiance’s family in PA.

Wouldn’t this be a magical place for a winter wedding!! It was totally beautiful. They decorate for Christmas both inside the conservatory and outside in the park…the building include DuPont’s old mansion and various other buildings on the grounds of his estate, which they COVER in lights. There was even a fountain light show synchronized to classical holiday music. It was a really special night!

I especially liked this experience because it wasn’t cheesy and it really embraced Christmas of today. Sometimes in the old Christmas Villages I feel as though we’re trying to hang on to the past so hard that we can’t enjoy Christmas of today- but Longwood Gardens had a fresh, current feel to it without being too trendy. Flowers and greenery really make the difference for me.
