On Sunday, we had the pleasure of working with Adam+Carrie as we coordinated their fun & personal wedding at Mill Creek Barns! Carrie picked an absolutely beautiful color palette, featuring orange, yellow and blue hues! Yellow and orange tipped dahlias, peach hypericum berries and peach calla lilies were featured in the bouquets, centerpieces and ceremony arrangements. In lieu of a traditional cake, the couple opted for cupcakes by Dee’s Specialty Cakes, and they were absolutely delicious! Guests were also treated to a sweets table, complete with cartons of milk and “silly straws.” A firepit on the property served as extra fun for guests who wanted to enjoy S’Mores provided by the couple. The Matt Stedman Band kept guests out on the dance floor all night, and even provided beautiful fiddle & keyboard accompaniment for the ceremony.

One of my favorite things about this wedding was all of the personal touches they incorporated into the day. At the ceremony, each guest was giv en a beautiful painted stone heart, which they were asked to hold throughout the ceremony, and to fill with their love and support. At the end of the ceremony, the hearts were dropped into a beautiful turquoise tin to be saved for the couple to keep in the future. At each table, a pine log held a picture of the couple at the table that was married the longest, including a fun fact or quirky comment about their own love story!  I also loved that they created an “Adventure Book” to use as their guest book—the Adventure book was a beautiful handmade scrapbook, outlining Adam+Carrie’s journey as a couple. Guest could write a message on beautiful squares of paper to later be added to the book!Overall, this was such a fun wedding, and we had a wonderful time being a part of it! *All photos by Stella Event Design
