Where do I even begin with Lucas and Kim’s wedding? I LOVE the fun bridesmaids and groomsen photos. The black and white checkered floor in the tent is brilliant. Kim’s intricate hair, lacy dress, and elegant bouquet may actually speak directly to my heart. The recycled window table seating chart and personalized jam favors are such nice DIY touches. And that wedding cake? It looks as delicious as it is beautiful!

The details from Kim:

“We are both from farming families. I grew up on a dairy farm in South Jersey and Lucas grew up on a vegetable farm in Western New York. We are best friends and crazy about each other. We chose to get married in Western New York in a little town called Elba. Lucas grew up in Elba, New York. We got married in his parents yard. It is a beautiful farmhouse surrounded by a beautiful garden. We figured our children could always go back to it one day if they would like to get married there.

“We loved the idea of having a farm wedding because we both grew up on farms and its part of whom we are. We used old crates to make a cake stand. We had an old milk jar case to hold cards at the wedding. We used old barn windows as seating charts. We painted one side black and the other side we used white paint markers to write out the names and table numbers. On each table we used jam jars as the favors on the tables. The wine at the wedding was from my cousin’s vineyard called Meranda-Nixon Winery in Ohio. We had a time capsule with notes in it to read 10 years down the road. Lucas had a red tractor for us. We both love IH red tractors. Lucas collects red toy tractors and I love vintage furniture and other antiques.

“The flowers had garden roses, some wild flowers, hens and chicks, and we used mason jars on each table. Each table had mercury glass candleholders on them with chalkboards used for the table numbers. We had a soft serve ice cream machine. There was a photo booth with props. Our wedding photographer helped us set it up. We used old lawn furniture and barn doors as our backdrop. Everyone went crazy with it. In addition, we had lawn games such as can jam that we made ourselves. It was a perfect day even with being quite warm.”

I could gush about this wedding for ages. It’s filled with inspiration for fall! I love the handmade ceremony doors and the “Here Comes the Bride” sign. I love the simplicity of Katie and Tim’s wedding so much that I had to create a gallery of extra photos. The ones on the dance floor are priceless! The Pavilion at Orchard Farms makes for a beautiful reception venue- that open ceiling is gorgeous. One of my favorite details is the nontraditional wedding topper. I love how the cowboy boots on the entire wedding party tie everything together for a true farm wedding! Congratulations Katie and Tim!

I love the secluded location of Brenda and Matt’s engagement! It’s like their own secret garden where they can just focus on each other.

From Brenda, their story:

“Matt and I met through mutual friends while I was home from college on break, and Matt was living in a nearby town. Fast forward six years, through my failed attempts at finding the one, while hearing people say to me, “You never know, it could be someone that you’ve already met, timing is everything!” Meanwhile, Matt was going through his own life changes after becoming single again for the first time in years.
“Matt’s calls to go hunting or fishing turned into his trips out to the prairie during harvest to see what I was up to. This turned into me putting on mascara to wear in the field just in case he stopped by. Then one night at a small town concert, he pulled me aside and told me that he wanted a chance. This was the start to our wonderful adventure.
“He proposed to me out on the prairie where we had fallen in love. We were sitting in his hot rod after taking an evening drive, watching the sun go down, and he pulled a ring out of his pocket.
“Then starts the wedding planning! We soon found Ali and Matt from multiple recommendations. We met with them for breakfast and saw couple that we related to and felt comfortable with. They seemed to understand how we had many parts of our lives that were important to capture. This is something that is obvious when you looked at our final photos. For example they captured not only shots with our dogs, but also pictures in a filbert orchard with the hotrod, and pictures with an old barn on a farm we own together. Everything we saw when we looked at our pictures just made us feel like they truly knew us.
“Matt and I are getting married on June 22nd at my family’s farm in Oregon. It is incredible how far you have come and how at home you feel in a place that was right there staring you in the face for 8 years. I told someone the other day, who was in their own frustrating plight to find “the one”, that you never know, it might be someone who you’ve already met, timing truly is everything!”

Thank you so much for your wisdom, Brenda! Congratulations to you both. We can’t wait to see your summer wedding!

Nova and Chris’s wedding is a gorgeous mix of rustic and glamorous. Their simple outdoor ceremony overlooks the peaceful California hills surrounding Julian, California. About 30 minutes inland from San Diego, this small town is filled with apple orchards and quiet spaces, perfect for a farm wedding. The handmade bunting sign on the card basket is as charming as the dessert bar. Who wouldn’t love the option of fresh apple pie, caramel apples, cake, or cookies? The couple also made wine favors for their guests. This entire celebration feels sweet and romantic, perfect for this down to earth couple. As the sun set during Nova and Chris’s reception, the quaint Farmhouse Inn became even more beautiful. This modest venue is wonderful reminder of what weddings are all about: LOVE.

This wedding has a traditional, vintage feel. The DIY details on the dessert table and the personalized reception decor, like the lace doilies on the wedding favors, are adorable. My favorite part? The framed directions that read “Here’s a twist on the guest book. We would like all of you to write a quick note for us to read on our 1st, 10th, 25th, or 50th anniversary. A thought, prayer, poem, quote, memory for us to share with you over the years, and remember this beautiful day far into our future.” That’s such a sweet way to involve your guests in your wedding day and future anniversaries! What a lovely farm wedding, through and through.
