What is it we love about farm weddings…especially in Maine? Part of it is the sense of getting back to our roots: despite the fancy coastal homes that get all the attention, Maine is mostly a rural state with strong ties to it’s idyllic heritage and traditions. Why not celebrate that? Rachel & Sean fully embraced the farm’s style and reflected in almost every detail of their day.Flora*Bliss is the onsite flower shop for the farm. Flora is John & Stacy’s daughter, and Bliss is their family name…it was meant to be. Check out the story of their farm and how they got started in the links below.
Animals abound on this little farm–everyone got a kick out them all day.Rachel had lots of texture in her dress, shoes, and accessories–all from the new-ish (and completely fabulous) Anthropologie bridal shop BHLDN.You may be wondering the story behind this image of the dress? My assistant Wendy and I like to think outside the box when styling out the dress. Rachel got to use the charming old farmhouse for her bridal prep (a MAJOR bonus to this spot!)–she had the dress all nicely displayed on this form in the dressing room. But the house had so much character–we saw this ornate gun, and the huge flower…and just got hit with inspiration. I think it’s one of my favorite “portraits” of the dress ever.Loved the pop of bright blue on the groomsmen. And those country, yet fancy, suits were just perfect for the relaxed late Summer day on the farm.The ceremony is held in one of the rolling pastures on the farm–quite a treat for the guests, and the photographer.All the food from Belle Fete was farm to table inspired..including the herb infused butter below.This little guy was so excited that he finally caught that kitten. The second he released him the kitten ran like crazy back to his cozy house!The day was so enchanting, and the grounds so inviting…even though the lovely tent was set beautifully, folks just took seats outside to enjoy the scenery. Super casual and fun.
