Farm Wedding

I just returned from a refreshing wedding. It was beautifully simple, unfettered by over planning and too many details, and a pure reflection of the couple. It was the type of wedding that makes you look back over your own and ask the question, 'Did I make it as authentic as it should have been?'

It took place on their 8-acre farm that they recently purchased. Kids had an incredible time chasing chickens while adults sipped on lemonade and tapped their toes to a bluegrass band. Spanish moss hung everywhere...who needs a florist when God created spanish moss?

I love the groom and his nephew riding the tractor after most of the guests had gone!  And don't you love all the children gathered around for the cake cutting? I couldn't help but think of Anne of Green Gables during the entire wedding. It made my heart very happy!

The bride wore a vintage wedding dress from La France in the Ybor City/Tampa area. Would you ever wear a vintage dress or did you? They make me think of literary heroines, wisdom from past generations, and whimsy. I love these vintage dresses (although the first one is only vintage-inspired).
