Ali & Jack’s family farm wedding was absolutely amazing. The weather was warm with a slight breeze, and there wasn’t a cloud in sight – which was amazing, considering the day before, a hurricane just barely missed the upper Eastern Shore area where Jack’s family farm is located.
Ali & Jack’s vision for their wedding day was a mix of bohemian elements and nautical decor. They are free spirits, and two of the sweetest and most down to earth people on the planet! Their details were in shades of blue, surrounded by white, pink and peach florals and lots of lush greenery. Their wedding felt whimsical and beachy all at the same time – perfect for a wedding on the bay.
One of the best parts about having a wedding at home is being surrounded by family – even the furry ones 🙂
Ali and Jack chose to exchange gifts and letters before seeing each other!
Ali wore a pair of peach Birdies with fun little poms on top! Comfy and cute for an outdoor wedding!
Mismatched tuxes and bridesmaid dresses made their “wedding tribe” feel unique but coordinated!
Ali looked AMAZING in her BHLDN gown!
I love the wild, unkempt look of her bouquet. It looks like she could’ve foraged these right from the farm!
Ali and Jack chose to do their first look up by the barn silo to have a little privacy!
Guys, this was seriously the BEST reaction I’ve ever seen from a groom! He could not saying “Oh my God!” and he was so genuinely excited to marry his bride to be!
Jack noticed every little detail of Ali’s bridal look, even down to her eyelashes. So sweet!
Ali has the most beautiful eyes that will pierce your soul!
Couldn’t have a wedding day without taking a few pics with their pups, Ozzy and Gritty!
On the far end of the property, they set up their ceremony location overlooking a beautiful lake.
Ali & Jack’s family and friends cheered for every wedding party member as they came down the aisle. It was clear that they are so loved.
On the opposite end of the property, across the farm, the cocktail hour and reception were held under a beautiful sailcloth tent overlooking the Chesapeake Bay.
All of the driftwood and sea glass was foraged right from their beachfront property!
Guests were encouraged to come down to the waterfront for an epic after party – complete with drinks, cornhole, and music!
The sunset was beyond dreamy!
I still can’t believe Jack’s family lives here. It’s what an incredible sight!
Couldn’t end the night without a night shot under the stars!
