Wedding Weekending

Phillip G Cochran Church
I'm not entirely sure when I've had a summer this busy. Honestly, I swear there has been something going every weekend. I'm not complaining. Okay, maybe a little bit. How in the world is it almost AUGUST? SLOW DOWN Summer! For reals! One of the highlights this summer has been all of the weddings I've been to. I'm a sucker for a wedding. I went to a beautiful one, and want to share it with you!

First of all, the wedding was in the Phillip G. Cochran Memorial Methodist Church. This is located in the little town of Dawson, PA. Can I just tell you it was absolutely stunning! This church is listed on the National Register of Historic places. The bride's father officiated, and they had a traditional ceremony which I love. So heartfelt and meaningful!

The reception was at Linden Hall. My parents had visited there on their honeymoon. Remember when they went here too? Again, this place is just beautiful. The food was outstanding, and the servers were just lovely. We spent the night at the motel on the property and the room was clean, the staff was nice, and breakfast was delicious!

Linden Hall Mansion

Inside of the church

The property is 785 acres and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was built for Sarah Cochran, the widow of Phillip Cochran who was into the coke and coal business. It was built for 2 million dollars. The mansion has 4 stories. The mansion is 8,720 sq feet. The United Steel Workers of America bought Linden Hall, and it now serves as a training center for Steelworkers.

I got picture happy, (these are only a fraction!) and I am just going to let you enjoy this beautiful place! Enjoy!

Stop back tomorrow, and I'll show you about a new discovery that I found while on this little weekend getaway!
