Lindsay and Bryan’s farm wedding is full of romance. The dress, the flowers, the decor, the desserts- everything is LOVELY. Even in these photos, Lindsay’s eyes light up the room! I couldn’t narrow these images down any further. A gallery was a must! The lavender theme is so sweet, and inspiring for upcoming warm-weather weddings. I can almost smell the flowers! The venue at French Creek Estates compliments this couples relaxed beauty. This wedding makes me long for endless summer days and relaxing starry evenings!

    Lindsay Solem - Dear Emily,

    Thank you so much for selecting our wedding to be featured on your website – it’s an honor! I fell in love with this venue, Lord Hill Farms in Snohomish, WA, and nothing else compared to it. They accommodate outdoor weddings as well….I just didn’t trust Northwest Weather! Keep up the fun work!

    Sincerely,

    Lindsay SolemReplyCancel

This sweet couple reconnected after meeting years ago. Alissa and Ben attend a church that doesn’t allow photography, so the wedding party got all dressed up the day before for photos! I love the idea of celebrating the big day ahead of time and capturing the couple pre-marriage one last time. The inside of this barn is GORGEOUS- it’s wide open, filled with love and excitement!

I love this farm wedding because the day was filled with sun and positive energy that you can see on the dance floor!  A little surprise?  The wedding party is full of big city lovers!    Can you imagine their families’ reaction after announcing they would have a “farm wedding?”  Tarina and Grant met in college while living in New York, and they moved to Chicago after graduation.  While they built a life together, they planned their wedding with help from Tarina’s Mom.    The simple, elegant flowers and reception at The Appel Inn are gorgeous for a warm-weather wedding.  Plus, the fresh topsy-turvy cake design is as fun as the couple themselves!

Have a wonderful and positive afternoon, everyone!

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!
