Real Wedding ~ Mary and Mark

It was a beautiful day for Mary and Mark's October nuptials photographed by Melissa Schollaert Photography at The Farmhouse Inn nestled right outside of historic Madison, GA. The event was designed with the natural country setting in mind, working from an inspired palette of powder blue, brilliant white, khaki, golden yellow, muted orange and mossy green accents. Mary wore a beautiful Pronovias strapless gown with gently ruched detailing, while her bridesmaids wore short powder blue dresses with varying necklines to flatter each girl's figure. The groom and groomsmen wore black suits paired with white button downs and persimmon ties and each wearing a boutonniere of hypericum berries, craspedia and a single muted orange rose on their lapel. A rusted old van set out on the sprawling farm provided a unique backdrop for some wonderful country, vintage inspired portraits of both the bridesmaids and groomsmen before the ceremony. Mason jars with sprigs of mixed white blooms and craspedia hung from shepherds hooks along the outdoor ceremony aisle, which was set on the lawn under a gorgeous old tree. Two little boys carrying a sign reading, "here comes the bride" led the way for Mary's walk down the aisle carrying a bouquet pale orange roses, craspedia, delicate white blooms and accented with blue thistle.

Set out on a brick patio in the Courtyard Garden, guest enjoyed a cocktail hour of fresh teas and lemonades served out of mason jars. A few cocktail tables were situated around the patio covered with a khaki linen base and set with an embroidered white overlay. The reception was situated in the garden lawn right next to the garden patches where fresh vegetables were being grown. Garden lights hung from the perimeter and provided a festive glow over the intimate dinner space. Round guest tables were set with khaki linens and white overlays which paired nicely with the natural wood chairs. Mason jar centerpieces created by Birch Blooms in the event palette were nestled in moss that adorned the center of the table along with small votive candles. Guests shared their advice and wishes for the happy couple leaving words of encouragement on the couple's expression tree that stood on an exposed wood table as they entered the reception space. The tree adorned with small little glass bud vases with muted orange and delicate white blooms was filled by the end of the night with marriage advice and dreams for the happy couple. Don't miss any of the details of the day, including the pretty powder blue ceremony programs bound with twine and the couple's unique fingerprint family tree guest book.
