Today’s wedding comes to us thanks to the talents of Dreamlove Photography and By Emily B., who respectively captured and styled this impeccable Bishop Farm shindig. No detail was left unconsidered, from the wooden signs to the seafoam and pink place settings to the cheery floral arrangements.
From the bride, Eliza: Our favorite memory of the day is how it all felt — throughout the day, we were completely overwhelmed by all the love, support, and laughter surrounding us. If we had to pick one moment that showed this, it was during the second to last song of the night. The Lumineers’ “Ho Hey” was playing and although the groom and I started dancing with each other, everyone spontaneously worked themselves into a swaying circle to which we, ourselves, could not resist being a part of! By the end of the song, there wasn’t a guest sitting at their table or anyone standing outside the barn — every single person was swaying, together, in a huge circle on the dance floor. At some point, I remember looking at my now-husband and I knew we were thinking the same thing: We are seriously the luckiest people in the world to have so many wonderful people in our lives!
Any advice for other couples planning their weddings now? Our advice would be to carefully pick and choose what is most important to you and what represents you and to not sweat the rest. To us, we saw our wedding as a community event, a celebration of not just us, but also of the love and support our dearest friends and families have given us. As such, we spent a lot of time working on things that would reflect this: From planning weekend events to maximizing time spent with everyone to writing fun, personalized notes for every guest on the back of their escort card, we wanted to thank all of our guests for joining in on the celebration and for being, well, awesome! That said, we also had the luxury of having an amazing set of vendors, each of whom we could entirely trust to take our general ideas to the next level, while ensuring that the specific details that we did choose to spend time on to be carried out flawlessly. Have fun with it and everyone else will too!
From the photographer, Dreamlove Photography: Eliza and Brent traveled all the way from San Francisco to host their eco-friendly wedding in the rural green hills of New Hampshire. Bishop Farm was the perfect venue for these two, with it’s rustic New England charm, and environmentally friendly amenities like solar-powered cabins! Our favorite details were the antique furniture, provided by the lovely By Emily B. design team, and the bright and artful flowers everywhere! Eliza’s bouquet had air plants that were actually blooming! Eliza had the genius idea of having guests use ball jars for their drinks during cocktail hour, and write their names on the glasses so they could keep using them all night! From the donut cake to the handwritten escort card messages to each guest, this wedding was overflowing with personal touches, making in an incredibly unique event.
