We are so incredibly thrilled that Ashley & Alex’s wedding day has been featured on The Knot! They had so many stunning details to share wedding inspiration with other brides. Link to the article here.
Here is the feature:
“Penn State University alums Ashley Bennett (25 and a community marketing manager) and Alexander Palmer (27 and an account executive) had a wedding that was packed with school spirit. For starters, their venue was Penn State’s Beaver Stadium. “Not only did Alex propose right outside the stadium during homecoming weekend, but the stadium holds a special place in our hearts that goes further than just football,” Ashley says. The ceremony and reception took place in the stadium’s Mount Nittany Club. As a bonus, the venue already matched Ashley and Alex’s Penn State-inspired palette of navy and white. Ashley and Alex designed their invitations to look like old-time football tickets with a belly band with the famous Penn State chant, “We Are!” At the ceremony, the couple incorporated football-themed details by featuring cheerleader and football player silhouettes to represent their wedding party in the wedding programs. For a twist on the recessional, they provided their guests with navy and white pom-poms to cheer on the new Mr. and Mrs. Palmer. To match the cheerleading theme, the wedding’s Instagram hashtag was #shakeyourpalmpalms, a spin on the couple’s last name. At the reception, adorable DIY goalpost centerpieces were made out of PVC pipe on mossy greenery. Table numbers were displayed on cards made from a vintage Penn State football calendar. As wedding favors, Ashley and Alex gave their guests Penn State-themed coasters. And the lucky couple were able to snap a wedding portrait with Penn State football coach James Franklin. Samantha Jay Photography captured all the Penn State details from the day. See more, below. “
