Strawberry Farms Wedding!


One of my favorite parts of designing a wedding are the details. It is the little touches that make each wedding unique. This barn wedding had a lot going on and it was important to bring all the different elements that the bride wanted to incorporate together so that the end result was pleasing and what she wanted without it being 'too' much.


Her favorite flower is the sunflower and that was important to her. And even though she was getting married in a barn she made it clear she did not want the wedding to be too country. She wanted bright colors with a more vineyard look but with some vintage elements too. And she wanted it to be more elegant than rustic. To make it even more challenging, the groom who is Scottish wanted to wear a kilt. A red plaid one. And so did his 13 groomsmen. 


The bride's favorite color is purple and so chose that for her bridesmaids. 


The girls wore red shoes (I love that!) and the Rabbi asked for a Chuppah. (Did I tell you there was a lot going on?)


The beautiful bride wore traditional white ...


And I heard that the Rabbi married them with charm and meaning and a bit of humor thrown in ... 


And while the ceremony was going on, we were working on the finishing touches inside the barn where the reception was held.


The bride had chosen seed packets to announce the seat assignments and we planted them in burlap lined trays of grass and lobelia. 



Instead of a traditional photo booth, the bride asked for a photo vignette and then hired a photographer to take photos for them. We brought in my favorite settee, some old-fashioned hats and props, and a handful of large frames to make the photo shoot a fun and unique experience.


 We hung a vintage chandelier to add to the charm.


The tables were set with lovely lanterns ...


And on a few tables in between we placed some tall iron branches.


The result was everything the bride wanted it to be.
