Few homes in America are more iconic than Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater, so when we saw this beautiful wedding hosted in the nearby barn, we couldn’t wait to share it with you all! Veronica Varos Photography captured Mary and James’ wedding day, which was simple and rustic yet impactful and vibrant.
From the bride, Mary: Our wedding was rustic and simple with a burst of color. We wanted to keep things simple, incorporating pieces we love (sheepskins, blue ball jars, basket from home that stored our programs) lots of lush leafy greens, and little details that were us.
Everything was created by us in some way, our save the dates, invitations, name cards and programs we’re designed by James himself, the tassel garland was made by Mary and her maid of honor/best friend Mallory, the twine / green table settings were made by the mother of the bride and Mallory’s mom. All flower arrangements including bouquets and boutonnieres were designed and arranged by the bride and her MOH.
Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Do what feels right and keep it simple! All the little things you think you wish you had a few days before the wedding, you’ll laugh at the day after and be glad you didn’t run those extra miles. All that matters is it’s your day — you saw all the people you love and you can now say you are married to your best friend.
