It's not every day that a bride owns a property that matches the presentation and romance that a professional venue offers. But Sarah's childhood address in South Jersey had even more than that - it had the character and personality that only a well-loved, fully lived in home can offer. Hello Gorgeous Photography sent us these images that cover the myriad of different decor aspects on Sarah and Brett's wedding day - there was not a corner of this gorgeous property that wasn't thoughtfully planned out, and no detail forgotten.
Sarah's knack for wedding planning as come in especially handy for us, as she is now a member of the A Garden Party team! We are so happy to share her beautiful wedding day, and can definitely appreciate the lengths she went to put on one gorgeous party.
We loved this textured bouqouet, with burgundy ranunculus, cream spray roses, thistle, seeded eucalyptus and purple amaranthus.
Brett and his groomsmen wore seasonal bouts, with spray roses, berries and gomphrena.
Every detail throughout the space perfectly matched the couple's rustic theme.
Sarah and Brett's ceremony space was so charming and comfortable! Hay bales were covered with linenes for seating, and tree stumps lined the aisle with wooden lanterns and burgundy pillar candles. Brett was in charge of draping the trees with fabric and string lights to set the altar.
Our log vases were the perfect fit for this woodland ceremony, and we packed them full with hydrangea, dahlias, roses, fall grasses and Queen Anne's Lace.
We LOVE these alternative for bouquets! Sarah's bridesmaids carried delicate wreaths, made with vines, roses, scabiosa, dahlias, and eucalyptus. We actually were inspired by this and used same concept for a recent photoshoot, it's so pretty and unique.
Sarah and Brett's son, Liam, was the star of the show!
The couple displayed a sentimental tribute to their ancestors. This was such a touching way to represent their family "tree."
Various seating areas ensured that guests would be comfortable, no matter where they wandered. The hanging candleholder with bittersweet vines was an especially admired touch.
For the cocktail hour, Sarah had a mix of high and low top tables, each brought to life with a colorful centerpiece.
This wooden spool drink station was probably our favorite part of the day. Our adorable coke bottles were turned into vases to match the rustic theme, and bright pops of color in the dahlias, roses and greenery kept it fun and pretty.
How amazing is this set up? Hay bales and pallets came together for lounge areas and seating. Adorable bud vases and candles added more color, along with Sarah's collection of vintage linens.
Farm tables and mismatched chairs provided more traditional seating thorughout the space.
It's not a real party without a little bling! This sequined backdrop gave some flare behind the head table.
Pie for dessert! Pies delivered from The Amish Market made this backyard wedding especially homey.
The personal touches lasted right up until the end of the night, with jars of apple butter homemade by Brett's grandmother serving as favors for guests to take home.
Congratulations, Sarah & Brett (& Liam!) We have loved getting to know your family this past year, and wish you nothing but absolute happiness!
