FROM THE COUPLE:

CREATIVE ASPECT

One of the main ambitious or our wedding was to create an environment that was very communal and inviting.  We did not want it to be formal, but a place for our guests to feel comfortable and welcomed.  One of the main reasons we chose Ronin Cooking Farm as our venue was because we wanted our wedding to be natural and simplistic.  Using the natural environment around us, we were able to minimize décor and use the natural layout of the farm for all of the spaces we needed.  We also wanted to portray different elements of our personality and originality from the style of our clothes to the set up and décor.  We wanted our wedding to be unique to us, not based off of tradition.

OUR THEME

Our wedding was a Boho rustic theme.  Our colors were scarlet red, taupe, and navy blue.

FAVORITE DETAIL
The bright red contrast! The dark to light colors accompanied by the cloudy sky and lush green farm made the red from the roses, my lipstick, and the hypericum berries pop!

MEMORABLE MOMENT

It rained!  Even though we had to change the plan, it remained beautiful and perfect.  We continued to proceed.  Walking down the aisle to the man of my dreams my muddy train trailing behind me, all of the people we love huddling together under a sea of colorful umbrellas, and kissing my new husband in the rain was absolutely a day to remember.  Not to mention our pictures turned out incredible!  They are so unique.  (Thank you Nicholas!)

BRIDE’S ADVICE

We wanted to plan so much for the details but at the end of the day it rained and nothing went according to plan.  It was a bummer but still amazing.  Having experienced this, our advice would be to focus on the meaning of the wedding and avoid getting so wrapped up in all of the details.

If you are planning on doing a lot of the details yourself plan accordingly.  Set aside enough time because it takes a lot longer to do it yourself.

Budget – there are a lot of things that you can make yourself.  We saved so much money on the flowers by putting together the bouquets and making the boutonnieres ourselves.  We also created our own save-the-dates and
invitations/postcards.

Talk with those who have gone before you.  Use your resources, people want to work with you!  Don’t be afraid to set a firm price and be okay with that.  More importantly have fun.  For some, planning a wedding can sometimes be a stressful experience but we encourage you to relish it , enjoy the little things, and take  it one step at a time.  Hopefully you will never plan a wedding again so enjoy it.
