Real NC Wedding : Lisa & Luke Outdoor Wedding By Orangerie
Lisa and Luke’s wedding was bursting with personalized details. The groom grew up in Iowa while the bride was from New York. The theme of their backyard wedding was a fun fusion of New York City meets Iowa.
Combining the Groom’s Mid-West upbringing and the Bride’s Italian heritage, Lisa and Luke chose to wed on the groom’s family farm in iowa, surrounded by their closest family and friends and rows of golden cornfields.
The wedding party walked through a set of free-standing doors and down an aisle lined with vintage vases tied to wooden sticks. The groom’s brother built a custom stage complete with a windowpane backdrop, adorned with a collection of vases and candles. The groomsmen wore boutonnieres embellished with antique New York and Iowa pins.
Following the ceremony, guests transitioned from the side lawn to the backyard, which had been transformed into a shabby chic wonderland. Small cans of champagne atop a rustic wagon doubled as an escort card for the guests, as well as an adorable wedding favor.
Each table featured a vintage tablecloth and a variety of old vases and bottles for the centerpieces. Antique postcards from New York and Iowa were used as the menu display and the table names and were held in place by a bent vintage fork.
The mother of the groom’s kitchen table served as the sweetheart table and the couple’s beloved pet sat alongside the bride and groom as they dined and danced throughout the night. Guests enjoyed having their picture taken at the photo booth, which used the family’s barn as the backdrop. In addition to a traditional white butter cream wedding cake adorned with love bird cake toppers, guests enjoyed homemade pies and New York Style cheesecake.
Three hundred of the couple’s closest friends and family danced the night away beneath a canopy of handmade paper doily garlands, making memories that would last a lifetime.
