A Country Wedding Day in May: Emily & Ian – May 16, 2015

0537Emily & Ian were married on a lovely day in May filled with classic country touches and creative twists. With the scent of apple blossoms in the air tables were set with spring hydrangeas in ball jars atop cherry log slabs and adorned with hearts painstakingly made out of barbed wire. Farm from start to finish Emily got ready at her parents’ home farm where she was raised and ended dancing here at Maple Shade Farm under the stars. Ian and the boys hung out at MSF all day and did some fishing in the pond waiting for the big moment to arrive. A touching church ceremony led to a wagon ride by Emily’s father back out to Maple Shade.

Just like the Old West a hero was involved…My Hero that is in Delhi catered the event. Mark and his staff created a grub line not to be missed. Part of the buffet menu was raised locally by the bride and groom and Mark put in his own personal touches and it was a Taco lover’s dream. Yes tacos…a taco bar was both unexpected and fabulous at the same time. Not a topping was left off the list.

DJ Tito had the crowd dancing as the party moved downstairs. Guests were lured away from the dance floor only to sample the delicious cookie bar supplied by family members…everyone brought their best recipe and The Farmer’s Wife, Barb Hanselman made a few desserts and a tasty rustic cake topped by two wooden birds.

It was a DIY wedding with all the personal touches and atmosphere any couple would dream of. Family and friends were raving days after about how lovely this Country Wedding Day in May was!

Congratulations to Emily & Ian.
