Captivated by the secluded venue, we designed a romantic outdoor ceremony that could have happened just as easily in Europe. The intimate ceremony could take place in front of a raging fire in the stone hearth where guests can cozy up under vintage throws. Other than a variety of rustic metal and wood lanterns, only a simple honeysuckle vine wreath adorned the fireplace setting. Our bride and groom kept each other warm as they toured the gardens and pastures, sharing some love with the sheep and chicken. The loose, European garden-style bridal bouquet was imagined in rich garnet reds, soft pinks and deep purples. The elegant country house theme carried through to the classic menu made with farm fresh foods created for L’Apero (cocktail hour)in the library, with Beeting Hearts, English Pea Soup Sippers, A Smoked Salmon Fish Board, Rustic Antipasto, and Salmon Napolean served alongside delicious Sweetheart Serenade champagne cocktails. The family dinner table was imagined under the pergola in the Cottage Garden. Paired with French gray linens, antique white vases, polished silver candlesticks under glass hurricanes, vintage white Lenox china, red cut crystal goblets and the family silverware, the table is a dream come true.
There’s just something about rustic weddings. As a former Kansan it takes they take me to a happy place filled with breathtaking fields and natural goodness. We’re head over heels in love with this stylish European Farm to Table wedding shoot by Millie B Photography. Antique details coupled with chic European accents and a killer rural backdrop deliver rustic charm that totally has us swooning. There’s so much to love here ladies… See for yourselves.
