The wedding of Mike and Julia at Rustic Acres Farm was a romantic and elegant affair- not to mention fun and relaxed – the perfect combination of chic and country. With twinkling lights strung from the exposed wooden beams of the barn, hay bales, on-trend white pumpkins and the most stylish group of wedding guests you’ll ever see, their wedding was whimsical, autumnal and warm.
The couple forwent the traditional wedding cake for homemade pies by the Rustic Acres Farm in-house baker; playful details like the wire bird toppers made the unique choice that much sweeter.
Julia’s choice of flowers for both her bouquet and the reception were perfect complements to the chic-rustic design of the entire wedding; Lauren Phillips of The Farmer’s Daughter Floral did an exceptional job of balancing modern and traditional for arrangements that were at once composed and relaxed.
For the reception’s entertainment, Julia and Michael had the John Parker Band play until the wee hours of the night. They chose Jack Johnson’s cute “Do You Remember” for their first dance and encouraged their guests to keep the dance floor hot all night long.
It’s hard to beat the countryside in the fall and Julia and Michael’s bridal party portraits shows you why. The fiery yellow, orange and red leaves as a backdrop for Julia’s wedding dress, the men’s dapper suits and the ladies’ deep purple and blues is so stunning; a true feast for the eyes!
