A Jubilee Event: Rachel & Adam’s Rustic, Summer Wedding at The Barns at Wesleyan Hills in Middletown, CT

Rustic Wedding at The Barns at Wesleyan Hills

We love reliving this fun, cheerful and rustic wedding at The Barns at Wesleyan Hills of Rachel and Adam from this past June. I loved working with them alongside Rachel’s dotting parents on this gorgeous yellow, ivory and green wedding perfectly placed in on the gorgeous grounds and barn. They had an absolutely gorgeous day for their late morning rustic Jewish ceremony overlooking the giant willow tree at The Barns.

Rustic Wedding Day Details

Some of my favorite details are the day are the subtle infusion of lace. Everywhere from Rachel’s gorgeous Jim Hjelm gown, to the antique lace cloth that hung above them on the chuppah, to the lace wrapping around each napkin. Feminane, soft and with a bit of texture, it was the perfect compliment to the rest of their design.

The reception was gorgeous with tan linens, rattan chargers, vintage plates, pretty yellow napkins. The most beautiful yellow, green and ivory centerpieces by Blush Floral Design in large wooden boxes. The tables were overflowing with garden roses, sunflowers with their petals plucked (the perfect addition of green and brown!), ranunculous and crespidia. Each place setting had a sprig of rosemary and a menu card printed on card stock that looked like wood grain.

Guests danced the afternoon away to my new favorite band, like, ever The Rhythm Shop, who literally couldn’t have been more perfect. A Little Imagination Cakes‘s took inspiration from our save the date and created the cutest most delicious rustic cupcakes you’ve ever seen, displayed on tree trunks and wooden circles. Guests took hope chocolate covered oreos (Rachel’s favorite!) in pretty kraft paper boxes.

Rustic Wedding Day Paper

Coral Pheasant Stationery + Design created a truly unique invitation suite. Starting with wooden save the dates that had their intials and a heart engraved along with the date. For the invitations themselves, she created little wooden heart tags which were tied with gold and ivory twine, laced around a band of lace. Love! My favorite little detail was the wooden tags attached to the heart with Rachel and Adam’s wedding website engraved on them.

A big thank you to Carla Ten Eyck and Buzz Media Company for capture the still and motion photography for the day!
