I've secretly always dreamed of having my wedding on a farm: there's something so intimate and natural about it, and all those open fields provide the best photo backdrops. Karman and Clint were not just married on a beautiful farm near Lancaster, PA, but they were married on their family farm, which makes it all that more special. From Karman's open-back laces dress and her beautiful summer bouquet, to the simple tablescapes and bridesmaids in cowboy boots, every detail is more perfect than the next. Brides + Grooms, if you're looking for inspiration for a rustic chic wedding, this is it!
Karman and Clint were married at the church he grew up at - Strasburg Mennonite in Strasburg PA - Lancaster County. Their wedding day was a warm summer day in July. The bride and bridesmaids got ready at one of the family farms. The bride had her hair done by the bride's twin sister Kara. Makeup was done by Hanna of Transformations salon.
The bride wore a dress from a local boutique wedding, Joyce’s Bridal House in Morgantown Pa. Karman chose an Alfred and Angelo dress that was fit perfectly into a country chic theme that was carried throughout the day. The bridesmaid's dresses came from AZAZZI.
The first look for Karman and Clint was held in an abandoned milk house that Clint’s Grandfather owns. The light, and lines of the milk house along with the chipping of interior walls and paint made for a very original and creative first look location.
The reception was held on a family farm and the guests surrounded by corn fields and comfortably seated under a sprawling white tent. Karman’s theme was country simple. She incoporated green/brown wine bottles filled with local beautiful flowers. She loved the shine to the bottles and never painted them keeping them tru to the rustic/natual feel. They had table numbers made out of wooden slabs made by one of the bridesmaide. Wisky barrels helped create tables for the guest seating chart which was made from an old wooden door. Hay bails served as the backdrop to the head table, vintage milk cans held floral arrangements and rustic tractors held the gifts and yard games were provided for guests to enjoy. The groom's mother who is also an artist, made the “You are Loved Sign” for all the guests to sign and later will serve as artwork in the Bride and Grooms home.
The amazing meal was provided by Dutch Country Catering and BBQ which is owned by a local Amish Family. Lancaster County is in the heart of Amish country so it was a special treat to have an authentic Amish cooked meal served at the reception. The wedding cake was provided by Dutch Way grocery store which is owned by the bride's parents.
The beautiful invitations were created by Ann’s Bridal Bargains and online site for invitations and more.Both Karman and Clint helped with all of the details of this family farm chic wedding, their personal touches could be seen everywhere.
