Real Wedding: Ali & Art's Summer Wedding, Veronica Lola Photography, Bayonet Farms

Tuesday, July 1, 2014

It is hot out there! Not that we are complaining. And if you are tempted to complain, I will remind you of our Arctic winter. No thank you. This weather reminds me of some of our warmer weddings last summer and I realized I never blogged Veronica Lola's gorgeous pictures of Ali and Art's wedding last year.  Now we understand that there are no weddings at Bayonet Farms at the moment {maybe that will change again}but the rustic, chic color palette and details of Ali and Art's big day can translate to many different venues.

Just as a note for couples that are planning their wedding from afar... Ali and Art lived in Australia for much of the design and planning process before the wedding. There were a few local visits to the States {Art is from New Jersey so he understands cold but Ali saw the space in the dead of a brutally cold and snow-y winter but she was a good sport about it.} No matter the distance, it can be done with the right team of people behind you {us!}

Ali and Art knew they would be moving to Texas after their honeymoon so as a nod to both Australia {Ali's home and where the couple met and fell in love}, and the great State of Texas {where their lives would continue} we placed gilded kangaroos and cattle on the place settings of mixed vintage China. And guests, having traveled from all over the world, were encouraged to sign a vintage globe- we think the coolest guest book out there.

We used much of Trunk Vintage Rental's  inventory to create the lounge areas in the cocktail space, the ladder escort card display, and the cocktail bars.

It was a warm day, sure. But it was one for the fun record books too. The couple and their guests danced the night away in the beautiful barn and we are just happy to be a part of it all.

We have recently learned that Ali and Art have welcomed a little bundle of joy into their lives! We wish all the best things in the world for them and their daughter. xo.

Ali and Art's wedding was featured on A Paper Proposal and the girls' bouquets were featured on Love Inc. Magazine.


  1. Be sure to ask for a list of inventory that is on site. Consider the following scenario: What if you decide to have a formal sit down dinner instead of a buffet? A standard 60" round dinner table can seat up to 10 people (if you are serving a buffet style dinner). The same 60" round dinner table seats only 8 for a formal sit down dinner. You may also want to feature a slide show of photos or play a video of some kind. Some venues offer Audio and Visual Equipment as well as microphones.
