Fresh garden vibes were brought to life at today’s wedding at Rustic Acres Farm. With an inspired-by-nature color palette of sage green and dusty blue, JPC Event Group helped to designed a day that is one part rustic chic and one part whimsical romance. Earthy details included moss covered table numbers, fresh foliage running the length of wooden farm tables, and an array of green and white floral arrangements, including a show-stopping blooming installation above Christine and Nathan’s sweetheart table. A watercolor design in the menu cards, escort cards, and day-of signage gave the reception space an oceanic touch, while ornate vintage glass and other antique details brought a throw-back vibe. It is the perfect mix of soft-meets-sophisticated and old-meets-new, and it was all beautifully captured by Oakwood Photo + Video.
About the Couple
Nathan and Christine met at Freeport High School when Christine was 15 and Nathan was 16. They stayed together until college took them on different paths, breaking up and getting back together over the years. During Christine’s senior year of college, they officially decided to call it quits and for three years, they lived in different states and started lives with different people on different career paths. They reconnected when Christine was visiting her parents on a trip back home to Pittsburgh. They couldn’t stop talking, laughing, or wanting to be together since.
About the Wedding
The wedding had a simple and fresh garden feel. It was classic and romantic with the juxtaposition of old and new. I really just wanted to be surrounded by simple and soft beauty…delicate accents while allowing candles and flowers to do most of the talking. Nathan and I live in a renovated factory in Bloomfield, so we love the old-meets-new vibe and that is what our church and venue provided.
We decided to go with a full Catholic mass for our ceremony with a family friend who is a priest as the officiant. It was long (an hour and a half) but during the ceremony, before we said our vows, Nathan and I sat on opposite sides of the altar and just got to look at each other and let it sink in that it was finally happening. It was so special to have that time of excitement and reflection to build before finally saying “I do” and getting to hold hands and sit side-by-side. Every part of so amazing, but I really can remember those feelings and moments as truly special.
