There’s nothing better — and more Midwestern — than sitting in a barn at season’s change, watching hues of gold take the rolling hills. Add a wedding, and that, my friends, is pure magic. Planner Lizie Anne helped her hippie-hearted bride make her countryside nuptials as chic and lovely as can be. The pictures from Joanna Day Photography speak for themselves and you can find even more in the full gallery.
From Lizie Anne Weddings… Justin and Christina desired a wedding that was full of family and love. With an intimate setting at Hope Glen Farm as the backdrop, we created the perfect wedding for them.
I like to think that Christina is half hippy, so I designed the wedding with that always in the back of my mind! From the lace to the floral crown – nothing was overlooked in making sure Christina’s vision was spot on!
Perhaps the most stunning design piece brought in, was the lush greenery chandelier that hung over their heads for the ceremony. We later situated that same chandelier over the head table. With the rolling meadow in behind them, and the head table dripping with greenery as well, it was a picture perfect scene. All the floral had the hand picked, straight from the fields look to it, and complimented perfectly.
I brought in some hand cut larger wood pieces for the unity candle and family bible, and painted them white to give it more of a polished / yet perfectly rustic look. To compliment those, I placed smaller pieces of wood down the aisle with candles sitting atop.
Vintage chargers and vintage dish-ware made the family style meal that much more perfect! During dinner, Christina and Justin sang a song they wrote to their guests. Not many eyes were dry following that!
To give honor to Justin who is in the air force and Christina’s dad who just left the air force, they had a table set aside for those who could not share the day with them.
The guests enjoyed a late night popcorn bar as they danced or lounged in the vintage couches surrounding them. The perfect end to a perfect day for the sweetest couple.
