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!
