The smell of lush garden roses and peonies is what brings me back to this gorgeous garden wedding. Kirstin and Mark’s outdoor summer wedding not only had the perfect weather but was a true testimony to there love for each other. Kirstin and Mark had been dating long distance for four years and were so excited to start there new journey in life together.
Words from the gorgeous bride- The whole day was incredible but my favorite part was finally marrying Mark and sharing our vows, which we co-wrote, in the most beautiful setting- reminded me of the Secret Garden. We had been dating for 4 years, all long-distance, and were even further apart during several deployments. I know I could not wait to live together and end the distance. As we drove up the long driveway of the Old Mill, we knew it was the right venue. It has a fairytale feel; the building itself is covered in ivy and the property is full of trees, bamboo, open fields and a small creek. The reception area is beautiful, very natural with stone walls and tall wooden beams along the ceiling.
It’s difficult to choose just one favorite detail from the day, but I loved the stone patio filled with twinkling lights. It was a great space to get some fresh air and cool off from all the dancing, as well as take some great group shots! And the décor, gorgeous flowers and moss everywhere, really gave the reception a forest feel. Mark and I love the outdoors and being surrounded by nature. We both knew we wanted to be married outdoors, even if it came with extra anxiety over the weather! We were prepared to get married outside in the rain; luckily it didn’t come to that. The whole setting was magnificent, from the gorgeous flowers and willow arch to the birds chirping in the background! I am so happy we took a risk and went with an outdoor wedding. The chandelier was inspired by a picture I saw in a magazine of a chandelier hanging in the forest. It was gorgeous and I fell in love with the idea – adds a bit of glamour to a natural environment.
