Bonnie & Adam – May 22, 2011

Bonnie and Adam were married on a sunny, spring day in May.  Inspired by “country romance” and bright colors, Bonnie planned her outdoor wedding at Front Porch Weddings.  She was dressed in a white multi-tiered tulle gown and metallic flats.  Her four bridesmaids were dressed in various mint and grape-hued frocks, and they all carried bouquets of peach, purple, and bright yellow flowers {arranged by Rita Woodard}.  Their guests were seated at church pews facing the giant tree in the front yard of the Front Porch Farms home.

Going along with a loose theme evoking an antique schoolhouse, guests were directed to sign the guest book, grab some refreshing lemonade, and sit and mingle prior to the ceremony… all tasks written on a chalk “To Do List” stationed at a small greeting table.  Bonnie incorporated another school desk and chalkboard in the reception pavilion with an “assignment” written for guests to take home their favor notepads.

The farm tables were decorated with purple and green glass vases of varying heights and bright fuchsia blooms with baby’s breath.  Guests were served on antique china and silver.  Floating above the tables were suspended branch “chandeliers” with crystals intertwined.


Small cakes {including a two-tiered “wedding cake” for cutting} were displayed on a table with miniature lavender cupcakes, for a homegrown touch.  The bride changed into a short ivory dress and sandals for the couple’s sparkler departure.
