Some weddings are gorgeous elegant affairs with gleaming crystals, tall cakes, and fancy ballrooms. Some weddings are quaint and cozy, with a only a few special guests and an intimate atmosphere. And then there's weddings that are more like the party that Maggie and Jason threw at Woodland Meadow Farms this past fall. Part DIY, part hippie, part raver, and a whole lot of fun - their wedding was one for the books.
Maggie and Jason aren’t the type to do a wedding the fussy way. They’re more the DIY Tie-Dyed flower girl dresses and groomsmen’s socks type. The ceremony in the round type. The taco truck type. And their wedding was awesome. Bec from Sane Weddings was their planner, and it was the perfect fit for her funky, laid back approach.
Olive and Opal made sure that Maggie was extra gorgeous and ready for the day with a look built to last: fake eyelashes included! (We won't say they're a must for your wedding, but they're pretty darn close!)

The afternoon got going with some portrait fun, and then the entire crowd of guests and bridal party gathered on the lawn to make a big processional train through the woods to the ceremony-in-the-round, all while the bride’s brother and the groom’s father’s bluegrass band accompanied them on the walk. Maggie’s mom read a poem and her brother sang a song, each guest took a sincere moment to warm the rings as they were passed around, and everything was topped off by the blowing of a conch shell as a nod to the family’s time spent on the islands.

After the ceremony, it was time for a chill reception filled with taco truck food, mini cupcakes by Simply Sweet Cupcakes, booze, dancing, a fire pit, and the finishing touch: a glowstick dance. It was a great party, and we were so glad that they trusted Melissa Miksch Photography to capture it.
