A farmhouse, simplistic elements, lace Oleg Cassini gowns, and the most romantic florals are just a few details you’ll find inspiring in this rustic wedding gallery. Through each and every photo CWM vendor guide member Courtney Simpson Photography captured, it’s evident how happy and how much love these two brides have for one another. They also clearly know how to throw one rustic soiree complete with an outdoor ceremony with views for days, DIY details, and homegrown succulent favors. Even their guests’ dogs were treated to a biscuit bar as a thank you from their fur babies, Madden and Olive. Now if these aren’t the most thoughtful and intentional wedding details, we don’t know what is. Take a peek at all the pretty below.
From Courtney Simpson Photography…Brielle and Nicole are truly such an amazing couple and their love radiates for everyone all around to witness. It’s actually hard to keep a smile off of your face when being in the presence of these two sweet women. Nicole and Brielle spent their morning getting ready on separate floors of Brielles family home. Hair and Makeup done by the amazing Rebecca Ballister. Their first look took place in the back yard on the bay. Nicole and Brielle celebrated their love and commitment to each other with their closest friends and family. It was an amazing occasion to witness the pure overwhelming happiness through out the day.
Nicole and Brielle came up with a very adorable catchy hashtag for their wedding day #twobridesonefarm which fit perfectly for their quaint rustic chic farm wedding at Argos farm in Forked River, NJ. They met each other at the alter walked by their fathers, Nicole wearing a gorgeous Oleg Cassini gown with a train that is to die for, and paired with a stunning pair of Badgley Mischka heel. Brielle wearing some show stoping Nina heels. Both of the girls gowns were purchased at David’s Bridal. Nicole and Brielle decorated their rustic chic reception space together, making it that much more special for them. Florals were done by Terri Mellone of flowers by Theresa rose. Their cake was created by the very talented A Sweet Memory bakery. Of course no party would be complete without the outstanding DJ Mike West of Dj Experts. The food was amazing so many great choices of comfort foods. Catered by Kate & Ally’s Catering. Their parting gifts to their guests were succulents and, of course, who could forget their pets, a Doggie treat bar!
Our theme was rustic farmhouse, and our color palette was cream, white, and burlap. While we did not incorporate any cultural or religious traditions, but since Nicole is an attorney, we had the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges (the Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage) framed and pictured near some of out photos. It was important to us that the Judge Nicole clerked for officiated our marriage.
We showed our florist one photo of a lantern with a green/white ring, and the rest was history. She really made the vision come to life. Our floral theme was white and eucalyptus greenery, which we incorporated throughout our ceremony and reception. Outside, we had flowers and greens decorating the arbor we got married under, and had the aisle lined in galvanized buckets filled with baby’s breath. We carried the white flowers and eucalyptus greens into our reception as the centerpieces and on our sweetheart table.
We went dress shopping together and picked both of our dresses out in probably two hours. We both wanted to wear ivory. Brielle went for a lace sheath dress with an open back. She wanted her dress to be simple and classy. Brielle chose Badgley Mischka blush colored heels. Brielle’s “something borrowed” was Nicole’s sister-in-law’s headpiece from her wedding. Nicole opted for a more traditional mermaid style wedding dress. Her dress had cap sleeves, with intricate lace and beading, as well as a very long train. Nicole wore champagne colored Nina heels, dangling halo earrings, and a crystal bracelet she wore to her prom about eleven years ago.
Since we got married at a farm, all of our decorations were DIY. We did not want traditional floral centerpieces, so we used different lanterns, wrapped in white florals and eucalyptus. We whitewashed a ladder, made shelves, and decorated it with photos of us throughout the years. Brielle’s grandmother and aunt grew succulents from their home and planted them in mason jars as our favors. They also bagged homemade dog treats as a “biscuit bar” favor from our dogs, Madden and Olive, to our wedding guests’ dogs. We also made a floral sign spelling out “Siano,” our own seating chart on an easel, and welcome sign.
