Everyone loves a summer farm wedding! Even the chicest among us can appreciate how magical it is to celebrate with the local season’s bounty and the early summer evening’s warm breezes. Visually, I can’t think of a more beautiful vignette: old rustic farm tables with burlap runners, Ball jars holding a multitude of summery libations, wooden troughs overflowing with heirloom tomatoes and herbs, menus on chalkboards and tall galvanized containers holding bushels of sunflowers…
In fact, I’m in the planning phase of a large farm wedding taking place this July in Dedham. Cocktails by the barn overlooking the Charles River.
I would love to have these galvanized tubs of lemonade jars awaiting thirsty guests as they arrive for the reception.
I found a wonderful vendor who rents out farm tables, ball jars, wine barrels, and even swing top bottles which I’d love to fill with local spring water for the guest tables:
A plated dinner will take place in this field in a large open tent (66 x 106).
I will keep you all updated as the planning phase amps up!
Oh my! That is TOTALLY fun stuff and I bet it was a wonderful eneving! The decorating was simply beautiful!! I am tucking this away for future prom ideas. I just love everything about it:). Your daughter looked beautiful!~Julia
