From Invited Special Events… The couple, Anne and Taylor, are based in DC, but they decided on getting married at Anne’s parent’s home in Medfield, MA. It was the PERFECT location for them, and it allowed us to incorporate all the casual “home-style” details that the couple really wanted. The bride’s favorite color is orange, so we made sure it was everywhere! The bright pops orange were complemented beautifully with blue throughout all the details of the day. The couple also knew they wanted to incorporate the neighborhood in some of their photographs, so they decided to have their first look at a family friend’s barn. From there they went to the local ice cream shop, Bubbling Brook, to take bridal party photos and enjoy a couple ice cream cones!
There were so many personal and DIY projects that were taken on for the ceremony and reception: from the chalkboard seating chart (a labor of love completed by Anne!) to the custom reclaimed barnboard table runners (thanks to her Dad!) to the program and menu design (another labor of love by the bride) to the three-foot orange balloons we had throughout the ceremony. Every person had a hand in making the day what it was, and her parent’s were so gracious when their home became wedding central!
Not a fan of wedding cake, Anne and Taylor decided against it. We opted instead for a pound cake and ice cream bar for all the guests to enjoy! With three flavors of pound cake, four flavors of ice cream and dozens of topping options, the guests were more than happy! We actually even ended up using Anne’s own pound cake recipe which also served as their wedding cake, with a custom bike cake topper of course. One of the best parts of the evening was the fire pit “after party!” We brought in hay bales for seating and covered them with orange jute for all the guests to cozy around the fire pit so they could enjoy the little s’mores station we’d set up for them, and enjoy it they did!
The photographers, The Wiebners, did an unbelievable job of capturing all the custom details of the day, including all of the priceless moments that were shared. Any wedding that ends up with the bride, groom and entire bridal party enjoying beers in the hot tub at 2am in the morning is a fabulous wedding in my book!
