Romantic Wedding Inspiration on a Flower Farm

flower farm inspiration

We think a flower farm would be the dreamiest spot to say I Do and today’s stunning editorial shows us all the reasons why. Lyndsey Hamilton Events used every element of the landscape to frame the design for the shoot. Teaming up with Poppies & Posies, they set a goal to showcase the beauty of these famous gardens, as well as cut from the flowers grown on property for the bouquet + arrangements you’re about to see. The floral arrangements feature dahlias that have been growing on the Farm for over 100 years and the pears used in the place cards were foraged from tress on the property. Pretty amazing, right?!

Inviting Shawn Connell for Christian Oth Studio there to capture all the beauty was another genius move! Let’s have a look at the pretty this talented team created…

The ladies chose a perfect gown by Samuelle Couture for the shoot. We can’t get over those dreamy layers of tulle!

Everything about this watercolor pink bouquet is completely spot-on! So many great little bits of texture + those peonies + dahlias are serious show-stoppers.

We just have to know more about this beautiful flower farm backdrop. The team shares, Meadowburn Farm was once the country house of Helena Rutherfurd Ely (1858-1920), a pioneering figure in American horticulture at the turn of the 20th century and founding member of the Garden Club of America. Meadowburn Farm, a historic dairy, today makes and sells aged, semi-aged and fresh cheeses and other dairy products—all made right at the farm from the milk of our herd of prize Jersey cows. Meadowburn represents working traditions of animal care and rich perennial horticulture leading to the tastiest of all-natural cheeses and milk, and the unique beauty of heirloom flowers and flower gardens. The farm and gardens are spectacularly set along Wawayanda Creek (the original meadow “burn” or creek) in Warwick and Vernon Valley, in the rural northwest New Jersey-New York border.

Playful Texas Ranch Wedding: Caroline + Jake

Texas Ranch wedding

Caroline + Jake tied the knot at Caroline’s dad’s amazing ranch in a beautiful tree-covered corner of Texas. What makes this property extra unique is the incredible story behind it. Her dad had found an old church building, moved it to this property right on the water, renovated it, and added on to the original structure to make it into his home. Needless to say, it made for a super unique, spectacular backdrop for C + J’s sweet and playful wedding celebration.

Since almost everyone invited was coming in from out of town, Caroline + Jake worked with Jennifer Laura Design to find some really fun ways of ‘slapping their guests in the face with Texas’ every chance they got…in a good way of course! There was delicious Texas BBQ, a fun local band, and even a Longhorn photo booth! Told you this one was Texas-inspired and we’re loving every minute of it! So glad the talented duo Love Is A Big Deal was there to beautifully capture it all.

Jennifer Laura Design explains the look they were going for with the tablescapes, We did a garland on the head table and organic centerpieces on all of the other tables- we also mixed in rustic metal punched lanterns, red candles, and hexagonal beeswax taper candles.​ ​Place settings were adorned with a fern leaf, a bit of oxblood red ribbon, and a hand lettered place card by Ladyfingers Letterpress.

Colorful Industrial Playground Elopement Inspiration

garland backdrop

For today’s ultra-fun styled shoot, artist + stylist Rachel LaBarre teamed up with the floral design squad, Native Poppy, to transform the ah-mazing Studio Q (in Oceanside, CA) into the coziest and happiest of party spaces. One of the things we love the most about this colorful editorial is that it features an adorable, newly-engaged real-life couple. You can seriously feel the love, folks! Natalie of Native Poppy shares, When my yoga teacher showed up to class with a stunning diamond on her finger I knew I had to design her big day. However, in free-spirited yoga teacher form, Rachel and her love Max decided they wanted romantically elope out of the country. With that being the case I convinced them to let me design a photoshoot in their honor. Because they were just engaged and are planning on eloping very soon, I think they were especially giddy during the shoot!

So fun, right?! The other thing we love most about this one? Hannah Costello’s stunning snaps of the pretty setting! Read on for more details on the team’s inspiration + to see the rest of the super fun photos!

From the photographers, The entire concept was based around a block print painting done by Rachel LaBarre that was featured as a backdrop behind the bar set up. The geometric patterns in the painting were incorporated in a hand cut table runner and the backdrop installation for their ceremony.
