Gone are the times when chair covers, aisle runners and china cake toppers are a must when it comes to wedding planning. Instead, many couples are taking the fuss out of planning without losing the frill, opting to include elements of their favorite memories and life’s everyday pleasures into the big day instead. Some recent favorites? Cupcakes and sundaes for dessert, coconut lemonade for a specialty drink and burlap runners on guest tables. And a wedding that really captured it? Renee and Wayne’s wedding, showcased below in Pat Furey Photography’s fantastic shots. Renee and Wayne paid homage to their heritage, incorporating crocheted overlays, bud vases and antique frames from the bride’s grandmother into the décor. They also kept the personal touches truly personal-A “WE TWO I DO” flag sign hung over the cake table, and handmade place cards sat on a bed of peat moss surrounded by handmade mushroom flowers. The outcome was a wedding as beautiful as it was comforting and down to earth-and with a March date, the views, property and town were all the more theirs to enjoy.
