The wedding story from the bride:
“We spent about 3 years looking for the right location; a big rustic barn that hadn’t been renovated, refurbished, or rehabbed in any way to host weddings. Moody Mountain Farm hit all our marks. It was perfect. I’m sort of obsessed with mason jars, particularly the aqua blue ones. That is where the inspiration for the colors and decor came from. The color is amazing and mixing shades of aqua and teal with little pops of red yielded this beautiful overall aesthetic for the wedding. That, paired with the mismatched plates and glasses (also sourced second hand), repurposed burlap coffee bean sacks and zigzag strings of globe lights added just a touch of Americana to the the whole thing.
“Something else I’m totally obsessed with are shoes. The dress was actually designed around the shoes, simple and hemmed just below the knee so the shoes would be on full display. Once I found the perfect ones (aqua rhinestone, peep toe, stilettos of course) I made them even more fabulous by painting the bottoms of them. Why? Why not?
“We have the most amazing group of family and friends that helped us put everything together, it just would not have happened without all of them, because of this I literally got the wedding of my dreams. Setting up the barn the morning of the wedding with an army of friends and family, especially two of our closest friends Kate and Ryan who were up to their eyeballs in mason jars and flowers. (Their flowers and hard work were a gift for which we’ll never be able to thank them enough!) On the day of the wedding the universe rewarded us for every good deed we’ve ever done by providing the literal BEST wedding weather we could ask for! Sunny and 78 with a light breeze and no humidity (insert the sound of angels singing here). Its all a matter of Karmic balance.”
Wow, wow, wow! This wedding is so bright and energetic. Abby and Jon created the epitome of a farm wedding- rustic, simple, and full of love. I love Abby’s DIY details and appreciate how much work went into the day! Congratulations Abby and Jon!
