From Emily Wren Photography... From the moment I arrived on site for Madeline and Mike’s wedding, the excitement was palpable. This vibrant and outgoing pair are a blast to be around, and their fun-loving personalities are truly infectious! The bridal party looked seriously stylish with the ladies in flowing, floor-length mauve dresses and the men in sharp black suits paired with ties to match the bridesmaids’ looks. But Madeline definitely stole the show in her fitted lace gown, which looked like it had been made for the gorgeous bride!

Janet Makcrancy Weddings and Parties created a spectacular ambiance for the couple with tons of draping, romantic lighting, and dramatic floral installations. The floating boxwood wreaths and spiraling globes filled with various types of greenery were especially lovely. Elegant geometric marble place cards and table numbers hand lettered by Ashley Wrenn of Hello, Bird expertly complemented the elevated aesthetic. It was a truly magical evening for two truly magical people!

From the bride... One thing that I knew for certain was that I wanted our wedding to be very romantic and whimsical. Our venue, The Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm, was romantic in and of itself, but I wanted that romantic vibe to carry through in all of our florals and decor as well as into the reception tent. I wanted our guests to feel as though they had been transported into a fairytale. I also wanted there to be a sense of softness and calm, and to me the soft palette that we chose helped bring that feeling to life.

Our day was nothing short of amazing. We had the most incredible team of vendors who made sure that everything was seamless and perfect. One of my favorite parts of the day was when my dad showed me the pocket watch my mom gave to him on their wedding day. It is inscribed with lyrics from the Van Morrison song "You're my Woman" and says, "And it's really real, the way I feel, it's really real."
