It’s always exciting for us to work at a new venue, especially one that is as special as Inisfree Farms. The owners, Peggy and Bruce, have spent the last couple years creating a beautiful, one-of-a-kind venue complete with multiple ceremony sites, two reception buildings, and luxurious on-site accommodations. They are extremely gracious hosts and welcomed us with open arms.
Paired with such a dynamic, fun, and loving couple as Becca and Josh, we knew this was going to be a very exciting wedding day, and it definitely was, even in the scorching-hot August sun. We worked with this couple for over a year, crafting their perfect celebration. Josh and Becca’s style was eclectic, featuring lots of natural, organic details and bold pops of color. Their ceremony took place in the lush Butterfly Sanctuary Garden, which was followed by cocktail and dinner in the historic 1893 barn. While we anticipated dancing would also take place there, Peggy and Bruce had recently completed the Pavilion, and we decided to take advantage of that for dessert and dancing. I love that Becca and Josh were open to utilizing so much of the property.
Another first time (and now favorite) collaborator on this celebration was The Everyday Chef and Wife, who brought the couple’s vision of farm-to-table food to life. Cocktail hour featured a stunning, 16 foot long grazing table and an assortment of passed small-bites. Dinner was served family style, complete with small crocks, rustic bread boards, and wood planks elevated on metal stands. Guests loved every bite!
For their reception design, rustic wood tables were mixed with rounds that featured a gently patterned tan linen, both accented with a vibrant green napkin. Becca had suggested she’d love a variety of colored glassware, so we mixed several different vintage water goblets together. Florals, provided by our friends at Back to the Fuchsia, focused heavily on mixed greeneries, herbs, succulents, and air plants, combined with pops of white flowers.
When guests made their way down to the Pavilion for dessert and dancing, they were created by a variety of eclectic lounge furniture, complete with side tables and area rugs, as well as intimate bistro tables, all lit with dozens of candles. It was here the guests danced the night away and celebrated the marriage of two wonderful people.
