Earlier this year we featured Jennifer and Greg’s adorable farm engagement shoot (see here). Today, we’re excited to share the photos from their wedding by Mark Romine Photography! With the help of their wonderful family and friends, Jennifer and Greg’s Fall wedding was a DIY success!
Jennifer filled us in on the DIY details from the wedding …
Jennifer: “I used old barn siding and painted signs to help guests find the farm. I also incorporated several of the hand painted signs into the reception décor. We rented the tent and all of the tables, chairs, linens & bars from Herriot’s rentals. I gathered several family members & friends and we did all the setting up and decorating ourselves. To save money we grew several of the pumpkins and gourds ourselves and I purchased the rest from a local pumpkin patch. We had a variety of centerpieces on the tables. The centerpieces ranged from the bridesmaids bouquets, carved out pumpkins holding candles or mums, old lanterns to several faux fall flower arrangements in mason jars that I made myself and have already used again. We used mini pumpkins & gourds to hold the table numbers and tea light candles. Being out in the open I was worried escort cards would blow away so I printed small flat cards and hung them with clothes pins from rows of twine between 2 posts. I scattered copies of our parents & grandparents wedding pictures along with a few of our engagement pictures in with the escort cards. I was able to use my home printer and a paper cutter to make all of the escort cards, table numbers and wedding programs myself.”
Even all of the food was DIY!! Everyone pitched in to provide a lovely meal for the 300 guests. The menu included a hearty homemade dinner followed by homemade pies and ice cream. The couple even set out a sweets table and a station for DIY s’mores and hot chocolate for the end of the night. Well done!!
Jennifer: “We had so much fun planning, creating and celebrating our wedding. As a little girl playing in front of my parent’s barn I never would have imagined I would also share my first dance with my husband there but now I couldn’t have imagined a better place. I had a vision of how to transform my parent’s farm into a magical reception. I loved how that vision actually came to life and that we had a great photographer to capture it. I loved that we were able to incorporate so many special details into the day. Most of all I loved how much our wedding represented us and that so much of it was homemade by us, family or friends which made those details and our day even more special.”
Congratulations Jennifer and Greg!
