From the bride... When my amazing husband and I started thinking about wedding venues, we wanted something that would reflect our personalities: a place where our guests would feel comfortable, welcomed and grounded, a place that would be just as memorable as the event itself. A barn wedding seemed to be the perfect union of everything we hoped for. Finding a site within our budget (that didn’t require cows being moved out) was a daunting task, until we found Gedney Farm in New Marlborough, Massachusetts. Gedney was once a dairy farm but has been renovated into a quaint B&B and reception hall. It embodied the simple elegance and earthiness that we’d been searching for.
Steve and I, selfishly, chose not to share our “first look” with our wedding guests. We wanted that moment be ours alone. Gedney set us up at Mepal Manor, which is just down the road from the farm. The unparalleled brilliance of our photographer, Judy Pak, captured the enchanted spirit of the moment. We feel so lucky to have found Judy! Besides being fun to work with, she effortlessly finds beauty and life in what most people see as just ordinary.
Our ceremony was outdoors under a beautiful tree surrounded by family and friends. I chose a peachy-coral palette, which was perfect for August. Each of the bridesmaids were encouraged to choose their own dress style and color within the theme. Their choices highlighted the whimsical atmosphere, which was echoed by the playful flower arrangements and bunches of sunflowers we purchased from a farm near the wedding venue and a local farm near our home in Connecticut. Andrea Wadsworth of AW Confections infused the ambiance of our wedding into her cakes. Yes, cakes! Andrea made an individual cake for each of our tables; each was as beautiful and delicious as the next. Repeating the countryside theme, each cake was placed on blocks of wood, a DIY undertaking by the groom himself. To add a personal touch, our guests used their own wedding cake knives as a tribute to the relationships that have influenced us. Everyone involved, especially our family and friends, helped us pull off a truly amazing day full of love.
