Marianmade Farm Wedding: Laura & Heath

Marianmade Farm Wedding with Michelle Peele Floral

With my first wedding of the season coming up this weekend, I have light-filled, summer wedding days in June on my brain. Here are a few photos from Laura & Heath’s beautiful celebration at Marianmade Farm that I never got around to sharing on my blog. I loved collaborating with this sweet couple and bringing their early summer garden party vision to life. A special thanks to Cindy Giovagnoli for capturing the day and the details with such care – for even more photos from this lovely day, be sure to take a peek at Cindy’s blog post!

Marianmade Farm Wedding: Maryann & Ben

It’s such a treat to be able to relive Maryann & Ben’s colorful, vibrant summer wedding as the weather hasn’t quite turned for good here in Maine yet. Looking at these bright photos on a grey April day is a well-needed reminder of how wonderful summer in Maine really is.

These two were married in a beautiful ceremony at Marianmade Farm and enjoyed dinner with their guests in the rustic barn before dancing the night away under a clear top tent. Sarah Goodwin of Daisies & Pearls was on hand, working tirelessly, to make sure everything looked perfectly and Trillium, per usual, kept the guests happy with their amazing food.

I was extremely fortunate to be able to use as many seasonal and local flowers as I possibly could, as the color palette was not limited and Maryann & Ben wanted the flowers to shine as their main decorative element. The live chandelier installation in the clear top tent was a joy to create and I’m so thankful that Elvira Kalviste traveled up to Maine from Brooklyn to capture the details so perfectly.

Marianmade Farm Wedding: Genevieve & Ed

Marianmade Farm Wedding with Michelle Peele

While searching for dahlia bouquets for a press request, I realized that I’d yet to share this beautiful September celebration on my blog. Genevieve & Ed’s wedding was a fantastic day at Marianmade Farm with Sarah Goodwin of Daisies & Pearls at the helm and Meredith Perdue behind the lens. I’m glad the day is finally getting its spotlight!

It’s nearly impossible for me to pick a favorite month to work with seasonal flowers, but if I had to September would be right near the top. Dahlias, scabiosa, garden roses, zinnias, ranunculus – this wedding had it all!

We were thrilled when writer, Rebekah Carey, reached out to us about featuring our renovated cape on the Design Sponge blog this winter. We had Meredith Perdue come up to shoot our home, styled vignettes, and a few portraits of us and the dogs this winter, and the house tour went live earlier this spring.

Marianmade Farm Wedding: Katie & Zach

It’s such a treat to be able to relive this bright summertime wedding when we’re still anxiously waiting for spring to arrive in Maine! Katie & Zach were married at Marianmade Farm last June and planned one of the loveliest celebrations for their family & friends. As always, I had a wonderful time working alongside Lindsey of L. Brook Events, and I absolutely love how the team at Peter Greeno Photography captured Katie & Zach and so many of their thoughtful wedding details.

Marianmade Farm Wedding: Cyndi & Tim

Cyndi & Tim’s late fall wedding at Marianmade Farm was so much fun! Sarah of Daisies & Pearls helped this sweet, down to earth couple plan a unique celebration that even included a nod to the Halloween holiday. The florals were a bit of a departure for me, as the goal was to incorporate something that was a bit more dramatic and “moody.” Of course, I had a wonderful time working alongside Sarah, the fantastic team at Trillium, and the talented photography duo of Hailey & Joel. While I am so excited for spring to come, looking through these photos certainly makes me nostalgic for a fall wedding in Maine!

Marianmade Farm Wedding: Breanne and Justin

Breanne & Justin’s September wedding at Marianmade Farm was a tropical dream! This sweet couple worked with Sarah of Daisies & Pearls to plan a day that reflected their modern aesthetic and I had the chance to infuse tropical flowers into every aspect of the floral design. It was a treat to see everything come together, especially the installation of tropical leaves which framed the acrylic calligraphy seating chart by Dyer Designs & Events. And I honestly cannot get enough of Breanne & Justin’s adorable pup – what a sweetie!

A huge thank you to a longtime favorite collaborator and fellow wedding vendor, Emily Delamater! Not only did she perfectly document the details that we all put so much effort in, she managed to capture the entire essence of this most special wedding day for our amazing clients – her portraits of them speak volumes of her work!
