Italian Inspired Rustic Wedding at Family Farm

An early fall outdoor wedding inspired by the beauty and culture of the Italian countryside. Guests gathered at Spring Hill, the bride's family farm for a day of horse drawn carriages, weathered fences and a family style dinner at country tables. Guests dined alfresco under an open sided tent hung with a large wreath chandelier suspended from the center. Long tables were set with natural linen runners overlaid with dense leafy garlands of seeded eucalyptus and white tapered and votive candles.

The bucolic setting and beautiful weather suited this Tuscan inspired wedding ceremony and reception perfectly. Tuscany brings to mind fresh flavors straight from the earth and a bevy of aromatic herbs like eucalyptus and bay. Guests sat at long farm tables with natural linen table runners laid with a mix of eucalyptus, bay, olive, and rosemary. Tapered, pillar and votives of white candles created a romantic ambiance. Each place setting had napkins with a sprig of lavender and rosemary. Earthy, fragrant and unforgettable. 

The bride was gorgeous carrying a simple bouquet of hydrangea and rose. Bridesmaids wore dresses in a mix of slate, pale and stone grays and carried nosegays of white roses, silvery dusty miller, lavender and pine. Hydrangea foliage and mophead clusters of chartreuse and purple were tucked into oblong tin tubs. Ferns draped over rustic beams transforming the airy loft and softening the old wood to create an ambiance of sophistication and charm. This perfect September wedding day was photographed by Stacy Newgent.

Garden Wedding at Greenacres Art Center

LMR007.jpg
 

Guests walked into a floral dreamland of peony, larkspur, rose, hydrangea and astilbe at this rustic and glamorous outdoor wedding at Greenacres Art Center. From a lavender and eucalyptus lined stone aisle to an airy blush reception tent whose ceiling was layered with over 14,000 blooms of blue delphinium, foraged greenery, Queen Anne's lace and larkspur whose tall spires were dense with pale purple flowers.   

The couple were married under a wooden arbor we transformed into an asymmetrical ceremony arch thick with lavender, white and mauve roses, silvery greenery and sky blue delphinium. All the elements worked together to create what the bride called a "loose, natural feel". Mismatched decor, a view of the night sky and long farm tables set with centerpieces of astilbe, roses and hydrangea lent an air of rustic romance to the idyllic setting.
