Wedding @ The Farmer's Museum

By: Jessica Robinson

We traveled up to Cooperstown, New York to design Caitlin and Mike's wedding.  I cannot tell you how much I loved the scenic trip through New York and the stunning country side views. 

Their wedding was beautiful!  The location: The Farmer's Museum, Cooperstown, New York
Our team of designers headed up (very early) on Saturday morning to decorate the site.  We hung green galvanized lanterns from the beams of the barn, adding that sparkle glow to the reception.  All of the couple's place cards were hung from two trees (manzanita branches in tall cylinder vases) strung with natural twine and attached with wooden clothes pins.  It looked amazing!  Definitely caught your attention as you walked in.  Thanks to our lead designer (Melissa) for putting this together!
Their centerpieces were all different. Some with wooden crates, lined with moss and filled with an abundance of summery flowers.  Others were chocolate/bronze footed urns with similar flowers.  The third design was simple.  Clusters of various jars filled with fresh, fragrant mint, colorful salvia, dahlias and garden spray roses.  We clustered antique purple hydrangea in sap buckets at every entrance to the barn.  The entire look was lovely!
Cookie Creatives by Jennifer handmade so many fabulous candies and of course the prettiest hand decorated sugar cookies.  They were displayed on the most yummy candy station I've ever designed!  Scott hand delivered out of town guest (burlap) bags that we filled with Rasinets, bottles of water, Goat boy soaps (lavender goat heads), raspberry rhubarb jam from Lamothe's Sugar House and Crunch and Munch.  They were really cute and the perfect touch as a thank you for guests traveling to join the happy couple.

Justin & Mary Marantz were kind enough to photograph every last little detail.... I can hardly wait to see what they captured!  They are incredibly talented and very, very generous!  Her cake was designed by ABC cakes.

Caitlin looked absolutely stunning in her Modern Trousseau gown which was provided by The White Dress by the Shore.  The weather could not have been more perfect for their summer wedding.  More details to follow in a few weeks...
