Homemade Garden Wedding in Newark New York

I have a sweet straight-from-the-heart homemade wedding for you to enjoy today. Held in a beautiful vintage garden in Newark New York, it’s full of pretty DIY details that will make your heart melt. I just adore the fabric flower centerpieces the bride lovingly made herself, the rustic cake display and the colorful pinwheel ceremony arbor giving the whole event a whimsical feel. Jennifer B. Photography who captured all the sweetness and darling DIY, shares with us all the loving details of their day.

From the Photographer: He was a Marine, hanging out at a bar with some friends. She was also there with some friends, eyeing him from across the room. Sara decided to do something she had never done before – she asked him to buy her a drink. They’ve been inseparable ever since. Tony is a bit shy but has a quick smile. Sara is vivacious and laughs constantly. Yin and Yang.

Handmade Wedding Ceremony

Their wedding was held in the gardens of Vintage Gardens Bed & Breakfast in Newark, New York. Rain threatened, but never arrived, despite two storms that passed nearby. It was a beautiful warm day scented with roses and highlighted with cute pinwheel-and-flower decorations. Two families met for the first time on this day, and friends from all over the east coast arrived to celebrate. There were no bridesmaids or groomsmen, but special friends arrived a few days early and assisted the bride and groom with wedding preparations.

Sara and her friends made the pinwheel decorations that graced the arbor. Sara bought old t-shirts from thrift stores and spent hours upon hours ripping them up and sewing them into flowers for the table decorations and her bouquet. Tony’s family made the cakes, and the cake stands were created from recycled thrift store glassware. Sara used mod-podge to glitterize her shoes.Handmade Wedding Cake Buffet

The reception was held at the same location, with a delicious menu of grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, salads, and fresh lemonade. The venue is the former estate of the founders of one of the largest and best-known horticultural firms in the United States, Jackson Perkins. Only 2.66 acres remain of the original estate, but much of the 19th-century-designed landscaping is in evidence.Handmade Wedding Decorations
