We’ve fallen in love with this simple and colorful micro wedding from Amanda Wose Photography! With COVID restrictions, the couple’s own working farm became the perfect setting for their sweet wedding day. We love the summery feel with the picnic tables and bright homegrown zinnias.
We live on a working farm in southern Maryland. We wanted to keep it very small and intimate so our home was an easy choice for our wedding celebration, especially during a global pandemic (thanks to COVID-19). Having a background in landscape architecture our home provided the explosion of color we wanted on our special day. We have a combination of shrubs, perennials and annuals (all the annuals we’re grown by the bride in their greenhouse on the farm) to provide variations of color and texture throughout the landscape.
We are both Catholic. It was important to both of us to get married in the church and receive the sacrament of marriage. Naturally we decided to get married at our home church. Our Priest, Father Sam Plummer, was so kind to return to perform the ceremony (he had been transferred unexpectedly months prior). It really meant a lot for him to be a part of our special day.
We kept everything simple. The most important part was spending the day together and enjoying the moments. Given that, it was important for us to find the right person to capture those moments on camera. We found the most amazing photographer, Amanda Wose Photography. She was the best. I find myself very awkward and uncomfortable in pictures but she really captured our happiness from the day. My face hurt from laughing and smiling so much. She was so friendly and we felt like we had known her for years. Not only was she a great person but a wonderful photographer! We are just in love with the images she captured. We will cherish these memories for the rest of our lives and thanks to Amanda we have the image to go with them.
We kept the table setting very simple. The bride and groom both share the same favorite color, blue. We used blue hues for the tables and added a rainbow of color with the flowers. We are very laid back and wanted to keep everything simple and relaxed.
The bride grew most of the flowers on their farm. Starting them from seed in their greenhouse in February. A combination of zinnias (one of the brides favorites), eucalyptus, lisianthus and sunflowers. The lisianthus and eucalyptus used in the bridal bouquet were provided by the brides sister in law, Shelley Russell of Sunnyside Florals. The bride arranged the bridal bouquet herself and with tremendous help of close friends arranged the flowers for the decor.
