This wedding really captures a true passion of mine: supporting local agriculture by buying direct from local growers. These farm fresh flowers were grown with love from an array of local farms (and our own gardens!) and we were so happy to present them to Christina & Buster (Anthony) on their wedding day at Eastlyn Golf Course & The Greenview Inn in Vineland NJ. Another one of my favorite things about this wedding: the bride herself! Christina and I connected instantly when she said "Any flowers you want, in any color, as long as they are locally grown." WELL OK THEN MY DEAR! I was happy as a clam! The slow flowers movement is dear to our hearts!

Amy Rae Photography captured these GORGEOUS photos, I just love her work. (I think she loves flowers because she always gets so many floral images!)
I think I cried tears of joy making this bouquet for Christina. My garden loves going to a garden party!
How CUTE is she??!! Love her little lace dress!
Dear Christina, Thank you for being awesome. Love, Mary
Her maids wore neutral apricot gowns that complimented the bright florals.
Each bouquet was a little different, just how I like it!
ALL LOCALLY GROWN FLOWERS!
A little something for Buster... The ceremony aisle was decorated with our vintage tables, and of course, more bright blooms.
This tiered table held programs as well.
I may of may not of clipped this sweet autumn clematis off of a fence on the side of the road. Can't drive by without cutting it!
(I also got a nice case of poison ivy from doing that, but I doubt I learned my lesson.)
Centerpieces in the Eastlyn Ballroom featured lanterns with floral rings, set on our burlap runners with peach lace accents.
The other table centerpieces were lanterns with mixed gold mercury bud vases and vintage brass candlesticks with flowers.
Mixed gold mercury vases and vintage brass candlesticks with garden blooms accented the other tables.
Dawn created these chair backs for the couple, I love how they turned out!
Sweet details on the mint colored cake.
XOXO to this special couple - thank you for supporting local agriculture, it means so much to all of us here at A Garden Party.
