A medical school student and a law school student were married at a farm in New Jersey – and it was FABULOUS. As seen through the lens of the oh-so-talented Lauren Rutten Photography, this wedding is seriously to-die-for. I’m absolutely loving the rustic, homegrown charm that feels too sophisticated and beautiful to be a Do-It-Yourself wedding – but that it was. That’s the best thing about you LBBers, you can take DIY and turn it into something CHIC. The stationery was made by the grooms sister, all the planning was by the brides mother. The best part? There’s more in the full image gallery!
From Lauren Rutten Photography … Annie & Sebastian were married on a family farm in Oldwick, New Jersey. Annie’s mother took on much of the responsibility for planning the event, since Annie & Sebastian live on the west coast and were in the last few months of medical school (Annie) & law school (Sebastian). Many of the details of the day reflect back to how Annie and Sebastian met over 10 years ago in Tunisia. They spent every moment together and they choose a star to remind them of their summer in Tunisia. Sebastian’s sister took the Night in Tunisia theme and created all the invitations, programs and stationery.
Uncle Henry’s farm provided a very relaxed and natural backdrop for their wedding. Annie grew up visiting the farm, so when it came to deciding where to shoot the first portraits of the couple, we stepped into a quiet trail of luscious woods, near where she used to play as a child.
Annie and Sebastian had friends arriving for the weekend from all parts of the world. Naturally, they wanted to keep their friends partying late into the evening. Dinner and dancing was capped off by a late night bon fire in the middle of the field where earlier they had been married under a beautiful white chuppah.
