The Farm at Brusharbor Wedding – Sarah & Stephen

“Stephen and I met online in February of 2014  but we had been going to the same university for several year and must’ve passed each other by a hundred times before. We agreed to go on a date, and when I got home that night I knew I had met my future husband. We love the mountains and went many times,  and he took me up towards Tennessee,  before pulling over on the side of the road in front of a 1900s hydroelectric dam on a river and asked me to marry him. Of course, I said yes!”

This wedding was full of beautiful aqua and blush details, with the inspiration behind Sara and Stephen’s big day being rustic elegance. They wanted a rustic feeling of being outdoors on a farm, on beautiful land, but with the charm of a southern wedding. They incorporated their love of the outside in the setting of the wedding ceremony and reception.

When it came to the decor, Sarah wanted lots of colour and beautiful flowers that arranged in a more organic garden style. Like their relationship, Sarah and Stephen love the perfectly unstructured, Sarah said that she wanted her florals to seem “as though you were walking through my grandmother’s English garden”. They also had many handmade satin ivory bows that her mother and grandmother made for the seats along the aisle of the ceremony location. The reception had a mix of high and low centrepieces with golden candlelight and flowers. The place settings were vintage mix and match China on gold chargers and turquoise coloured napkins.

The flowers were gorgeous with garden roses in peach, blush and ivory,  dusty miller, ranunculus and ferns .The flowers were the most important to Sarah, as she says she loves flowers more than any other form of decoration. “I wanted my guests to get the same feel from the flower arrangements as they did from our invites in the same colours”.

Like every bride, Sarah hit the internet in search of the perfect gown right after the proposal. She first saw her Pronovias wedding dress on Pinterest, and then found it at a local bridal boutique. The cathedral length veil was Sarah’s mother’s idea, and the mantilla style was a  nod to Stephen’s Cuban roots.
