Wedding at Home This is a sweet personal wedding at the brideâ€™s home. Lucky for them that home is a gorgeous farm house in the hills of CT. The family spent all spring getting ready for the big day-mowing the spot in the field where the tent would be, trimming the garden, building the huppah and even making blueberry jam for favors. With an infusion of warm springtime colors the result is a sweet, sunny celebration filled with love. The tables were dressed with blue silk runners as well as gorgeous garden flowers in salvaged wood boxes.
Working Farm This wedding was a memorable affair taking place at a local event venue that also doubles as a working farm. The farmhouse is a charming B&B that the bridal party used to get ready before the ceremony. We embraced the rustic environment offering guests the chance to enjoy farm-fresh lemonade before the ceremony. Floral and dĂŠcor was kept very garden-fresh. Working with the colors of the existing flower gardens we simply added to what was already there. Galvanized pails served as centerpiece containers. Favorite touch of the day was the vintage Shaker her drying rack that help bouquets of lavender as escort cards. The guests enjoyed music from a bluegrass quartet for cocktails and then an hour of square dancing before dinner. Guests left the evening with a sweet reminder of the wedding-maple syrup made right there on the farm.
Springtime at the Farm This wedding celebrates the couples whimsical personalities with elegant touches that are true to their lifestyle. The walk to the ceremony at the top of a knoll was lined with maypoles donning ribbon streamers. The same streamers were on the gorgeous tree that served as a ceremony backdrop. Using vintage seaglass and medicinal bottles the cocktail dĂŠcor was light and reminiscent of the brideâ€™s childhood in Miami. The dinner tables were set with raw silk overlays and dressed in soft colors of spring. Favorite touches were the crossword puzzle ceremony program, the clothesline escort cards and the Adirondack chairs scattered throughout cocktails for lounging. Of course the vintage car the bride arrived in was dreamlike as well.
