Amanda and Aldo have plenty of winter engagement inspiration! As an avid coffee drinker, I absolutely fell in love with their coffee shop photos.

From  Dark Propaganda Photography:

“Imagine for a moment you are spending a lazy afternoon in one of the quaint little towns scattered across Kentucky, stopping for moment in a local coffee shop to enjoy a fresh hot cup of coffee on a cold cloudy day, when you look out the window and start seeing snow flakes, the only think left to do is grab a camera and a couple who can command your attention. Amanda & Aldo traveled down from Michigan to spend a romantic weekend together in their favorite hide out just a few hours from home, Louisville, the city has captured their hearts as much as each other did. What started out as just another chilly afternoon turned into a winter wonderland with a very romantic twist.”

I absolutely love this autumn wedding! Mary and Greg were married on their family farm in Maryland, Fawn Meadow Farms.

We’re lucky enough to hear directly from the bride today:

“A. Location: Outside, in a meadow on our farm.

“B. Programs: We made them, because our wedding is outside in the fall.. we incorporated a lot of the outside elements! One of our groomsmen is a landscape Architect so we used an oak tree that he drew as the cover of our programs.

“C. Guest book- instead of a guest book that I don’t feel like I would personally look at ever, we used a thumbprint tree so our guest could leave their prints in fall colors and leave a note, and it will become a neat wall hanging that Greg and I will look at every day.

“D. Decorations for the tent. Greg’s farm is a museum of interesting artifacts. We found 3 porcelain tubs that we drug out and I repainted to use for self serve Beer and “Stewart’s soda.” His grandmother had several cool metal basins that we used to hold the wine. For the bar, we used 3 wine barrels and 2 old doors to lay on top. I placed black and white pictures of our parent’s weddings and our grandparent’s weddings underneath plexy glass to showcase our family heritage and incorporate our loved ones that have passed into the day.

“E. Everything about our wedding was LOCAL, Greg and I are huge supporters of supporting our local economy and businessesOur personal touches: We had 2 tractors that both have history in our family chained together with a sign that said “just hitched.” We carried the Rustic country theme throughout by using burlap, making “redneck wine glasses” out of Mason jars, we did a Milk toast instead of using champagne because we live on a dairy farm and I was a past MD state Dairy Princess so it was personal to us, we used candles and flowers for center pieces. We used shelled corn to hold the candles in the votives to incorporate another farm product. I could go on and on because everything just came together like a dream come true… we feel so fortunate to of hired a wonderful photographer who captured these details of our special day with such beautiful pictures that we will cherish forever.”

The cloudy day even makes a wonderful backdrop for this couple. I’m still swooning over the autumn-themed wedding cake and the lace detail on Mary’s dress!

Erin and Matt were married in a gorgeous garden ceremony at the Goddell Gardens Homestead in small town Edinboro, PA. They both live and work in LA, but came back to Erin’s hometown for the big day. The ceremony was followed by an amazingly fun reception in the nearby barn. This wedding has such a great feel to it – casual and relaxed, festive and full of smiles. And the details – oh, who wouldn’t want to get their groove on in that barn, under those paper lanterns and lights? And soooo many sweet moments between this bride and groom. There is one photograph of Matt looking so sweetly at Erin. Perfect!

Congratulations! And thank you to photographer NikkiMayDay Photography for sharing!

Photographer Athena Kalindi gushed about this farm wedding and I must say, for good reason! Here’s what she had to say…

“I am so excited to share this really wonderful DIY farm wedding on I Love Farm Weddings! This wedding took place at Dinner Bell Farm in Grass Valley, CA. The farm is the groom Brendan’s family farm. His sister and her boyfriend currently maintain and run the farm~ and while they’re small and pretty local, they even sell their awesome goods to restaurants all the way down to SF. They also specialize in wedding flowers…. which you will see throughout the images! Jessie and Brendan both have backgrounds in art and design, and so they created all of the wedding day paper goods- the table runners, the signs, the seating charts, you name it. As part of the meal, the peppers, lots of the veggies and the main course of bbq chicken were all raised/grown on the farm. A true DIY feat, their family literally sculpted the landscape to make it suitable for a beautiful wedding. The theme of this wedding was really all about cultivating love, and tending the garden of marriage.”

I love it all – especially their fabulous Polaroid style photo booth. So fun. There is absolutely no pretense at this affair, only true love. It’s really beautiful. Congratulations to you Jessie and Brendan!

It used to be tradition for the bride to have her own formal bridal photo session before the wedding… a way to document her in her most beautiful gown, all gussied up. So I love when brides carry on this tradition of making time to have a photography session just for her. This one was photographed by Limelight Photography at a gorgeous farm in Florida.
