On a gorgeous autumn afternoon Adam and Janelle said “I do” under a large oak tree at The Red Barn at Hampshire College.
The ceremony scene could not have been any more beautiful; surrounded by turning trees and picturesque valleys, the couple picked the perfect season to get married in.
Their charming rustic wedding fit perfectly with the venue and its natural location. The bridesmaids deep turquoise dresses gave a bright pop to the color scheme. The girls held baby’s breath bouquets, a bloom very popular with barn weddings! She wrapped them in turquoise burlap and used twine to create a ballerina knot design as a final touch.
Janelle’s bouquet was full of bright colors and textures. Terri used sunflowers, orange orchids, chocolate Queen Anne’s lace, peach roses, orange calla lilies, and green succulents to bring the fall foliage shades to her bouquet. Wrapped in ivory ribbon, Terri matched the brides bouquet with the rest by finishing it off with the ballerina knot.
For the guys, we wrapped orange calla lilies and feathered eucalyptus with twine, to blend in the rustic charm.
Sunflowers were also used in the ceremony décor as well. We hung a dozen sunflower, hydrangea, and moss filled glass globes throughout the venues oak tree. To add another backdrop element we draped fabric across two giant branches to bring in a classic arch look.
The reception was just as sweet as their ceremony setup! We used blue mason jars with baby’s breath bouquets to complete their cozy barn setting. The flowers were accompanied by small votive candles and a burlap wrapped bottle of wine that doubled as a table number.
Between the views of red and orange foliage for miles, Janelle’s blooming bouquet, and the couples sweet touches, their big day highlights all the beauty of an autumn wedding!
