Elana & Michael’s Vintage Summer Wedding- August 6th

October 7, 2011
Elana and Michael’s early August wedding on the farm was bursting with color and joyful emotion. Their gorgeous ceremony took place in the meadow on a warm misty summer day surrounded by their closest friends and family. It was a fabulous weekend overall and you will LOVE the way they created the homespun vibe of the Stonewell Barn (photos at the end). Michael’s Mexican heritage was celebrated with the beautiful handmade ceiling decorations. And they chose long “kings” tables to encourage the family style dining. The floral design was beautiful… courtesy of Trish Hegewald at the Pittsfield Garden Center:) Occasions Catering as always did a fantastic job as well!

Here’s some pix of an ideal summer wedding…photos from Riverside Farm photographer 🙂 The ‘real’ professional photos will come out soon… enjoy!
