Organic Fruit Farm Wedding: Xanthe + Sam

bride and groom

Xanthe + Sam got married at Xanthe’s childhood playground – an organic fruit farm/ yoga studio on the Mid-North coast of Australia! Such a magical location… Their wedding is so super sweet and filled with so much character + love! Everything for their day was done by Xanthe + Sam – including the table flowers, the hanging light globes, and the food + cake was by their familes. It truly was a family affair! :) Love the whimsical elements to their day including the flower girl masks, the love boat at their ceremony, and the photos in the orange grove. You would never know from looking at the photos, but the couple had some drama with their venue leading up to their wedding…

“It had been seriously flooding for the month leading up to the wedding and we were starting to look into where we were going to move the wedding to if people couldn’t get to the property. Then for the week leading up to the wedding, we had blue skies and lush green grass from all the rain! After the wedding the flood continued and the main highway connecting Sydney to Brisbane was flooded over! We were so lucky to get a perfect weekend in the middle of one of our wettest months on record.”

Big thanks to Lara Hotz for the lovely photos and congrats to Xanthe + Sam!

Our favorite memory from the wedding was working on all of it together. The DIY, the install, the cooking prep – it was such a fun project and all turned out to be such an awesome day.

For our reception, I was obsessed with all the chairs having individual style and being mismatched. So for the whole engagement I was collecting cheap white chairs. I ended up having to hire half but I liked the fact that it looked like a chair party! Similarly I also collected beautiful mismatched filament light globes which hung from the ceiling. At the last minute we realized there was heaps of jasmine vine on my sister & bridesmaids neighboring properties, so we draped vines all over the ceiling which ended up looking great.

My advice to others is just do whatever you want! Don't think about what you think you should do. Weddings are the best when they are individual and from the heart!
