Ernie Chiaradonna

 Julianne and Jim were married at The Red Barn at Outlook Farm in South Berwick, ME on May 17. The bride looked stunning in a lace fitted gown with an illusion bateau neckline with cap sleeves. She wore her hair in a low chignon and carried a light bouquet of  ranunculus, sweet peas, Juliet garden roses, viburnum, lavender, sweet peas, herbs, silver dollar eucalyptus, dusty miller, spray roses, and silver brunia. Her ‘maids donned short strapless persimmon chiffon dresses, while the groom and his men looked dapper in gray suits. “The rain stopped completely and the sun came out to create a beautiful blue sky day,” Julianne said of the ceremony. “The sun even shined down on our outdoor ceremony.” The couple tied the knot in front of a gazebo adorned with silver dollar eucalyptus, coral red roses, and ivory astilbe. Friends and family members sat in white folding chairs with floral aisle markers made of a similar arrangement. After they exchanged vows, a reception was held in the barn on the property. “I wanted it to be relaxed, beautiful but look effortless,” Julianne said of the decor. The barn had hardwood floors and wooden panels. Guests sat at round tables with white linens and matching wooden chairs. “To break up the white color, I had my florist use beautiful bright flowers,” Julianne said. Guests danced the night away and enjoyed a mini buttercream cake at the end of the night. Julianne’s advice? “Don’t stress the small stuff!” See the full board here.

Brooke and Patrick were married at Union Mills Homestead in Westminster, Md. on August 23. The bride looked radiant in a lace and tulle A-line gown featuring a V-neckline and a beaded silk sash. She wore her hair in a low vintage-inspired updo and carried a clean white and green bouquet. Her ‘maids donned mix-and-match blush dresses from various stores, and her “brides-man” donned a tan vested suit with a blush bow tie. The groom and his men opted for light gray suits and blush neck ties. “We both knew that our budget wouldn’t allow for a lavish ballroom event, but that wasn’t what was reflective of us as a couple anyhow,” Brooke explained. “We truly wanted a small, romantic, ceremony followed by a night of celebrating.” The pair tied the knot in a garden on the grounds of the homestead in front of 125 family members and friends. “It ended up raining on our wedding day, pouring, actually. . .the rain made the entire day and evening so magical and mystical, it felt like a real-life fairytale,” Brooked said of the day. A reception followed in the barn, which was decorated with vintage decor elements they had found in antique shops. Gold frames, mugs, and vases were just some of the things that transformed the rustic barn into a vintage space. Guests looked to a repurposed window pane to find their seats, where they ate barbecue and macaroni and cheese off of mismatched china. String lights and glowing marquee letters illuminated the space as friends and family danced the night away. Guests enjoyed an array of cupcakes for dessert. The couple was sent off into their new life with a sparkler exit! Brooke advises couples to do what works for them on their big day. “When it comes to your day, try not to get too caught up in traditions. We encountered so many instances in which doing ‘what everyone else did’ just didn’t fit for our day,” she said. See the full board here.

Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Lisa and Austin were married in St. Bernard Catholic Church with a reception that followed at Brookside Farms in Akron, Ohio on October 3. Lisa looked flawless in a fit-and-flare lace gown with a scalloped bateau neckline, her hair done to one side and softly curled. She carried a bouquet of hydrangeas, baby’s breath, and lavender. Her ‘maids donned long one-shoulder gray chiffon dresses, while the groom and his men opted for a classic black suit and matching skinny ties. The 230 guests gathered in the church for a traditional ceremony. After the couple exchanged vows, they recessed out of the church, where their guests waved banners that read “Oh Joy!” A rustic-inspired reception followed at a nearby barn. “The vintage/rustic approach guided my wedding planning,” Lisa said of her inspiration. “I wanted to keep things classy while showing off our personalities.” The wooden barn was decorated with string lights, white drapery, and vintage chandeliers. Pumpkin lanterns and an old wooden chest with photos were also featured in the space. “The grayish weather set a very poetic tone for the wedding; both inside the church and the barn,” Lisa said. Guests sat at round tables in white folding chairs as they dined on barbecue! For dessert guests enjoyed sweet and sugary peach cakes as well as pumpkin, apple, and pecan pies. “If you have a specific vision, go for it. You won’t have any regrets when all is said and done,” Lisa advised. See the full board here.

Pepa + Caleb: Vintage Midwestern Summer Barn Wedding by Dan and Melissa Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Pepa and Caleb were married at The Stanley Barn in Buckley, Mich. on August 23. Pepa stunned in a vintage-inspired v-neck lace gown with a crystal belt. She donned dangling crystal pearl earrings and wore her hair in a low sideswept chignon. She carried a summery bouquet of hydrangea, baby’s breath, spray roses, lilies, pink delphinium, and ferns. Her ‘maids opted for short dresses in various shades that matched the overall color palette. The groom and his men looked handsome in dark gray three-piece suits. The ceremony took place outside in front of the barn and a large tree. “I definitely would have never thought I’d get married in a barn in the middle of nowhere! In the end, I know I received a dream wedding,” Pepa said of the wedding’s location. “It was more beautiful and magical than I could have ever imagined.” After the pair exchanged vows in front of 175 friends and family members, they moved into the barn for the reception. Paper lanterns, string lights, and antique-looking chandeliers illuminated the space. “Instead of a country wedding with hay bales and mason jars, I wanted it to be old and vintage-looking,” Pepa said of the decor inspiration. A wall featured old family photos, and they even displayed the bride’s grandmother’s wedding dress. Bright floral arrangements in clear and white glass vases featuring wooden table number plaques acted as centerpieces. The menu was displayed on a chalkboard accented with twinkling lights. For dinner guests enjoyed beef tips and grilled chicken, among other food. For dessert guests indulged in a three-tier fondant cake adorned with frosted ruffles. There was also a popcorn station displaying different kinds of flavored popcorn. “There isn’t one part of our wedding day that is foggy in my memory,” Pepa said. See the full board here.
