I am beyond thrilled to share today’s beautiful wedding with you all! Stephen and Joey wanted a natural and serene setting for their intimate event and Lyon’s Farmette was the perfect fit – it’s actually a working sustainable farm that hosts an array of special events throughout the year. I’m absolutely in love with these bouquets; they not only fit the color scheme perfectly but they look so effortless… like Joey just grabbed a bunch of garden flowers. Isn’t her smile just gorgeous!? She looks so unbelievably happy and peaceful (despite the rain!) – you can just tell that Stephen is the man of her dreams. Make sure to read her terrific advice below…

What is your favorite memory from your wedding day? My favorite memory of the day has to be walking down the aisle with my father. My mother had just passed away not 2 months before my wedding day. I was full of so much emotion, and so grateful to have my father by my side as I began my journey as a wife. Walking towards Stephen and seeing his face made my heart swell with love, and knowing that my father was right by my side and full of just as much emotion and love as I was made me feel grounded and so open to this journey… 

What is your advice to brides currently in the planning process? My advice for brides currently in the stages of planning is to try and have as much fun, and find as much groundedness as possible, and to not get too overwhelmed with all of the small details. Looking at the larger picture of the beautiful transition that you are making with your husband to be is the most important part of all of this! The relationship is key, and even though one can get into the state of mind that the color of the table cloths, or signature cocktail is of the utmost import- those things really aren’t what will make your marriage rich and lasting. It is extremely important to take a step back and realize that you are making a beautiful and life-long commitment to the person that you love the most. Although the small details can be so much fun, and bring delight to your guests, it is always important to remember what is at the heart of this big day- you and your husband! Getting caught up in what you are told or led to believe about what makes the perfect wedding can be very overwhelming. Go with what you are most drawn to, and what you and your fiance think suits you best. Also, choosing vendors that you have an instant connection with is of such benefit. I loved each and every one of our vendors, and have made lasting friendships with them. Knowing that they were so invested in us as a couple, and invested in our vision made everything all the more special. – Joey

AMAZING advice Joey! Thank you so much!
