Family Farm Wedding - Morgan & Shane

This is one of my favorites, I must say.  When I met with Morgan and her mom, there was no question that we were going to work together.  We were on the same page from the very beginning and both Morgan and her mom were so sweet and laid back.

When they told me that the location for the wedding was the family's farm in Conyers, I was intrigued.  And I was not disappointed when I arrived for a site visit.  Here's a shot of Morgan in the entry foyer of her mom's house.  You can imagine that the rest of the house was just as interesting and eclectic. 

Bright, colorful, whimsical and natural were the words Morgan chose to describe her flowers.  Above are the mothers' corsages of orange spray rose, pink nerine, lime green button mums, purple asters with an accent of explosion grass (really, it's called that).  Twine finished it nicely.

The pasture that separated Morgan's parents' house from her grandparents' house was the ceremony site.
And to complete the "family compound" feel - Morgan and Shane were moving into the renovated barn after the wedding!

I had been dying to use the big round balloons again since I had used them at The Not Wedding and when Morgan mentioned she liked balloons - it was meant to be.  You must be careful though...those balloons require an extreme amount of helium so they are not a budget item. 

The bride and her sister - the maid of honor.  Morgan carried a bouquet of peony, orange spray rose, green button mums, billy balls, pink nerines, fiddlehead fern, and purple aster. 

Morgan and her sweet dad.  You can see the barn in the background which served as the "get ready" area and where Morgan and Shane would move after the wedding.

Bridesmaid dresses were a vibrant purple with flirty little organza flowers over one-shoulder

The reception tables were covered in burlap toppers and the stacks of wood were handcut by Morgan's dad.  We added moss, spanish moss, votives, river rock, butterfly accents and a large allium bloom floating in a bubble bowl.

The favors were big white gumballs that matched the big white balloons!

Signs were handpainted by dad.

And the sweet little cake topper finished it perfectly!
