Clare and Bryce were married at Bare Knuckle Farm in Northport, Mich. on May 25. They first met on OkCupid.com, an online dating website, almost two years ago.  ”It was one of those things where we just clicked and everything fell into place with zero fuss,” Clare said. The bride wore an a-line wedding gown with lace capped sleeves, accessorized with a floral wreath in her loosely curled hair, while the groom wore a dark gray three-piece suit, accessorized with a boutonniere wrapped in leather. ”We got so lucky with gorgeous weather leading up to the wedding and the day itself,” she said. “The ceremony was outdoors, on hay bayles, overlooking the farm. We each wrote our own vows, and we managed to make everyone cry, which was totally our goal!” Drinks were served in wheelbarrows during cocktail hour as animals roamed the nearby fields. ”After the ceremony, we took 10 minutes back in the orchards on our own, to take in the moment, take in each other, and realize we were married!” Clare said. The reception was held underneath a pole tent. ”If the weather had been cold, considered it was one of the worst winters on record, we wanted to make sure it felt warm – not just the temperatures but the visual feel too,” she said. Tables were decorated with “mango” runners made by Bryce’s mom, mason jar centerpieces, and heart-punched, handwritten thank-you notes attached to favor bags at each place setting. Paper lanterns hung from the ceiling too! ”The flowers came from a local farm where they gave us what was in season – mostly colorful flowering branches, which we rounded out with just a few other flowers from a flower shop,” Clare said. The newlyweds’ first dance was a surprise. “”We like to have a dance party with out family and friends – we dance party all the time,” she said. “So, we got everyone on the dance floor as soon as possible. The first song played was Jackson 5′s ‘I Want You Back.’” See the full board here.

Madeleine and Andy were married at Patowmack Farm in Lovettsville, Va. on October 12. The bride looked flawless in a sweetheart mermaid lace and tulle dress. She accessorized with a blush satin sash and delicate drop earrings. Under her veil she wore a tightly-styled updo. The bride held a bouquet of lavender and white roses, accented with dusty miller. The groom and his men looked dapper in gray tuxedos and matched the bridal party by adding a lavender neck tie. Madeleine’s closest pals stunned in lavender chiffon halter dresses and carried stock and rose bouquets.  ”As Andy and I were about to say our vows, it began to rain again and I was thinking—oh no—but in conversations after the wedding, our guests said the rain during our vows was so romantic because it brought a mist and fog around us,” Madeleine said. The 100 guests tossed lavender seeds at the couple during the recessional. The reception followed in a tented area where lights were strung overhead for a romantic feel. The guests were then greeted by lavender sprig escort cards, where they were brought to round tables with white linens and floral centerpieces. “We are both “foodies” and wanted our wedding to be an all around great party with good music, good wine and craft beer, and most importantly, good, local and sustainable food,” Madeleine said. With that, the guests enjoyed everything from butternut squash soup shooters to salmon tartare. After dinner guests dug into a spread of apple, pumpkin, and paw paw pies. Needless to say- they got fed! Madeleine’s advice to brides-to-be? “Take a step back as many times as you can on your wedding day to just soak it all in.” See the full board here.

Roz + Joe: A Rustic Fun-Filled Summer Washington Farm Wedding By June Lion
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Roz and Joe were married at Peterson Farms in Woodland, Wash. on August 10. ”I am a DIY-er at heart and approached much of the planning ready to get my hands dirty — and boy did I!” Roz said. “From assembling the save-the-dates, to designing and printing the own invitations, staining the centerpiece crates, tying tags on to each party favor, and painting a door for us to walk through at the ceremony, when the wedding day arrived, we felt like we’d earned it!” The bride wore a strapless lace a-line wedding gown, accessorized with an long-sleeve overlay, while the groom wore a tan vest and pants, accessorized with a teal bow tie. Bridesmaids wore long peach chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of dahlias and daisies. Guests were greeted with a wooden sign post that directed them to the outdoor ceremony. “It went off without a hitch — our biggest gamble was asking my 4- and 2-year-old nephews to walk our dogs down the aisle and they did it perfectly,” she said. ”My brothers officiated and did an amazing job mixing in humor and stories about us, as well as getting the ‘official’ parts done like they’d done it a million times!” Fun fact: The couple kept their vows a secret. Why did the newlyweds love their venue? ”The barn is owned by a local family that had recently immaculately renovated their over 100-year-old milk barn for community events, and they’d only done a few weddings to date,” Roz said. “Right when we pulled into the property, we were sold. The grounds were immaculately groomed and flowers were blooming everywhere we looked . . .the exposed beams on the upper level of the barn were beyond my wildest dreams for a reception venue. We were sold and booked the date on the spot!” Tables were decorated with burlap and lace runners, vintage dinnerware and silverware, and blue mason jars to “fill with whatever tastes right.” Assorted pies and a popcorn bar were served as dessert alternatives AND a bonfire was lit outside to roast marshmallows.

Antonieta + Shawn: A Vibrant Travel-Themed Fall Rhode Island Farm Wedding By Nelly – Photographer
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Photos: Nelly – PhotographerVenue: Mount Hope FarmHair and Makeup Artist: Studio 101Dress Designer: Lindee Daniel from Andria Bird BrideGroom’s Attire: Calvin Klein from Anthony’s House of FormalsShoes: Badgley MischkaBridesmaid Dresses: Alfred Angelo from Bedazzled Bridal & FormalCeremony Musicians: French Roast; Caterer: More Than a MealDJ: DJ ValentinaFavors: Aquidneck HoneyCake: Sin

Antonieta and Shawn were married at Mount Hope Farm in Bristol, Rhode Island on October 19. “”We wanted our wedding to reflect us as a couple with some urban influences, some country influences, some southern influences, some international influences and some New England influences,” Antonieta said. “We both have roots in North Carolina, I grew up in Ecuador and we have both traveled extensively.” The bride wore a sweetheart chiffon wedding gown with a ruffled skirt, accessorized with a jeweled sash, while the groom wore a three-piece black suit, accessorized with a bow tie. ”My dress was by Lindee Daniel, who is a designer from Los Angeles, that works with natural materials that are sustainably produced and responsibly sourced,” she said. “She gives back part of her profits to youth-at-risk in her area.” Bridesmaids wore long brown halter chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of calla lilies, roses, and berries. Guests were greeted with a basket of shawls to keep warm during the outdoor ceremony. The couple wed before 100 with a hand fast. ”It feels very rewarding to make the event your own,” Antonieta said. “Even though it is a lot of work to plan out details, I can´t imagine have done it any other way.” The signature drink? Hot apple cider, of course! Escort cards were shaped like luggage tags and directed them to tables named after cities. Reception tables inside the barn were decorated with red, orange, and yellow napkins, lanterns atop wood slices, and “hot” honey favor jars at each place setting. ”Since nearly every guest came in from out of town, we wanted to extend the festivities and have plenty of opportunities to spend time with friends and family,” she said. “We had a relaxed after party at The Dorrance, in downtown Providence, and we went apple picking the next day. We then left for our honeymoon in Bora Bora.” See the full board here.
