When we first saw this wedding we loved how natural everything was. Turns out, that was exactly what Lisa & David had hoped! From the bride : Years ago I would always envision a poufy dress and lots and lots and lots of fresh flowers. After being together for nearly 13 years by the time we got married simple and natural was the new vision. There were 2 things we were set on from the beginning- an outdoor wedding ceremony and an amazing photographer. We got lucky on both! It was a perfect day full of wildflowers and whimsy, sunny and in the mid 70’s. We couldn’t have asked for better weather! I made everything from the paper bunting that hung from the gorgeous willow trees for the ceremony, to the decorative pinwheels for the centerpieces (and one for each of the pinwheel girls too!), rosettes for above the fireplace and mini pinwheel cupcake toppers. My Grandmother and I tied ribbon wands for the guests to wave after being announced husband and wife (as well as to request kisses during dinner!). For favors our guests left with our favorite homemade molasses cookies and recipe. I loved our ceremony. Simple, sweet and very true to the both of us. The decorations were minimal, nature pretty much had that handled! White asters hung in mason jars lining the aisle and paper bunting was strung between the willow trees. I walked to the beginning of the aisle with my parents to meet David then he and I finished the walk down the aisle. Considering how long we have already been together it only seemed fitting to continue our journey together. Dinner and dancing took place inside the barn. There was no need for an abundance of decorations; the restored barn had so much character. Instead of a plethora of fresh flowers, broom corn, thistles and ammobium along with pinwheels, rosettes and doilies were the main choice for centerpieces.
