Rustic Wedding

Real Weddings: Laudholm Farm and the Kensington Skirt

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. -T.S. Eliot

Real Weddings: Meet Dianne

Jeff and Dianne were married at Kelley Farm in Washington, a charming piece of Bonney Lake history. The Kelley Farm house was a wedding gift, given from a groom to his wife in 1907. It has been lovingly preserved and restored through the years by the Corliss family. Today, the farm serves as an event venue, steeped in romance. The pastoral allure of this picturesque property set the perfect stage for Jeff and Dianne's rustic chic wedding. The bride chose a simplified version of our Pherousa gown and accessorized her look with our Filagree Garden Veil

Rustic chic is still where it's at!  Elena and Alex's wedding has joy oozing out of it at the seams. Could these two be anymore wonderfully jubilant?

Real Weddings: Meet Jessa

Jessa and Andrew are New York transplants who love to explore the East Coast. After spending many long weekends making memories in the beautiful towns of Maine, Rhode Island, and Vermont, they decided to create a wedding weekend for their guests that felt like an East Coast vacation. They knew, most importantly, that they wanted fresh lobster for their reception… a couple after our own hearts! Offering a stunning outdoor location, amazing catering, and beautiful on-site Bed and Breakfast, Mount Hope Farm was the perfect venue for their fete. They had magical wedding day and entire weekend of love and joy, just the way they wanted their union celebrated.

Real Weddings: Meet Lauren

Rustic radiance. This Catskills wedding was simplicity done right. The first-look photoshoot in the woods was prelude to the sunshiny outdoor ceremony. Galvanized pails filled with baby's breath lined the aisle, and glistening water provided the perfect altar. The barn-turned-dance-hall was choice for the reception. The pastoral trimmings were all on point. Our Solstice Skirt and Fleur Bustier were a lovely match for this special day. And how about those antlers!

Inspiration: Citrine by Rachel May

This inspiration shoot has it all, from florals to butterflies, to amazing movement. Rachel May Photography and Mallory Joyce have captured the ease and fluidity that is our Citrine dress. As lovely standing still as it is in motion, Citrine is always the epitome of grace.

Real Weddings: Meet Aäna

Talk about bucolic beauty! Aäna+Jeff live in Philadelphia, and thought of getting married there, toyed around with the idea of a Canadian destination wedding, but ultimately settled on a beautiful piece of private property (owned by friends of Aäna's parents) in her hometown of Rochester, Minnesota. Right on the river, boasting a beautiful barn and a huge green space, we can see why this spot was the clear choice. Just look at the herd of ebony horses!
