“I Do” at PSU

April showers bring May flowers, and following flowers comes…June weddings?

At the beginning of the year, one of the window displays in a store on College Ave. had a couple getting married. What was unique about the window was their outfits. The bride’s gown was decked out in blue and white, sporting blue football beads and the groom stood clad in a Nittany Lion costume wearing a blue suit. But Penn State Wedding apparel is not the only thing making weddings appear around the University Park campus.

Many alumnae make the trip back Happy Valley to tie the knot with those they love in a place they hold close to their hearts, home. Pictures can be taken at the infamous Lion Shrine or the Alumni Center followed by a ceremony at numerous sites on campus. The most popular place would be the Historic Nittany Lion Inn as well as the  Sister property hotel the Penn Stater. The Nittany Lion Inn provides weddings with a “colonial charm” and accommodates small or large ceremonies. Both locations are easy to get along with and coordinate plans with the photographer, florist and baker of your choice.

Newly finished, the new Arboretum is quickly becoming a hot spot for the on campus weddings. According to this recent Penn Stater article by Lori Shontz, one of her favorite spots on campus, “the Rose and Flower Garden”, is becoming another popular wedding destination. Whether it is Spring or Winter, people are finding spots to say their vows all over the Penn State University Park Campus.
