Real Wedding: Roselyn + Ben’s Strawberry Farm Wedding

This wedding is so happy + fun + has so many special touches the couple incorporated. I just adore it! Thanks so much to Heather (event designer extraordinaire!) from Amorology for sharing some of the inspiration into their day.

Roselyn + Ben’s wedding was centered around happy memories from the couple and of course created more amazing memories for everyone who was involved. Our initial inspiration for the wedding came from some of the bride’s fondest memories, which could be traced back to her time spent on her Grandpa’s farm. We knew that Strawberry Farms in Irvine would be the perfect venue for a gorgeous farm inspired wedding!

We played around with the farm concept even further by having guests names and seating printed and planted into crates filled with soil. Guests searched through troughs of carrots, sunflowers, strawberries, green beans, raspberries, and heads of lettuce to find what table they would be sitting at.

We also wanted to hint at the bride & groom’s occupations and where their love first started growing, at an elementary school. With this in mind, we designed the table names to encompass their current jobs as teachers, as well as fond childhood memories of their own. Using old pictures from time spent on the farm we played upon simple descriptions like “little brown farmhouse”, “big yellow tractor” and “rusty bucket” for the table names that we created. This helped bring a playful childlike component to the reception.

Handmade “little jam jar favors” with custom labels greeted guests at each place setting. There were of course lots of other fun handmade projects that we brought in to the affair like custom table runners, made by the bride’s mom, that matched the custom cake boxes we created to display the beyond cute cake. Darling little rosettes made by the Pincushion Princess also added a touch of whimsy when attached to the centerpiece wooden crates and the bridesmaids dresses. The wooden crates were filled with gorgeous & lush centerpieces of acacia, kale, roses, ranunculus, cherry blossom, and geranium leaf. The beautiful florals created by Twigg Botanicals helped set the tone for the reception.

Another element that brought some fun to the reception was the vintage inspired sippin’ soda fountain, where we had rows and rows of old-fashioned, brightly bottled sodas and root beer floats for guests to take and enjoy! Guests helped themselves to a “Strawberry Patch” cupcake bar, where we displayed cupcakes adorned with cute strawberry graphics. They were definitely “yum” and “sweet!” Guests were not only treated to sweets, but also the In N’ Out truck, a favorite eatery of the couple’s! Who wouldn’t be happy with a double-double? What really sent the night over the edge with awesomeness was the square dance caller. Sounds crazy, but everyone had a great time trying to “do sa do!”

  5. LOVE this wedding. I am modeling my own after it :) I have been searching high and low for teal strawberry crates. Can someone please tell me where on earth I could find those??

  6. Just in case anyone else was wondering about the fabric used on the table runners; I finally found it! The designer is Anna Maria Horner. The fabric is from her line “good folks” and it’s called “small gathering.”

    Lilly – I think you should check out etsy. There are tons of jackets on there perfect for your wedding day. Check out these sellers: Countessa, alexbridal, maryandangelika. Good luck!
