If you decide to go the shepherd’s hook route, go to Dollar Tree right now–they have the shorter ones for $1 each… you could hang a mason jar with flowers or candles to mark a path to the ceremony.  I think they only have them for the summertime decor.

Since you’re getting married in the summer, you might want to plan on having a nice white tent and then decorating from there.  Are you having a daytime or nighttime wedding?

The location is beautiful. I have just one suggestion (being from rural Ontario myself): be sure to check that none of your neighbours will be spreading manure/spraying crops the day, or the few days before, you wedding. I kid you not, this happened to someone I knew who was married on a farm.

As for decorations, any of the country chic look, like mason jar candles, would be beautiful. This blog has lots of that country charm/vintage look: http://www.100layercake.com/blog/

This is going to be SO PRETTY. I agree with previous posters — you could really get a lot of mileage out of shepherd’s hooks placed right along the perimeter of the garden — mason jars or vases with wildflowers to create a natural aisle for yourself. You could alternate with mason jar tea-light luminarias, which could be especially beautiful depending on what type of day it would be.

Another idea, depending on how amenable your folks would be to this, would be to see if you could plant something tallsh and colorful right along the perimeter of the garden where you’ll be walking. Something like sunflowers, zinnias or (late-planted) gladiolus.

Also, can I just say that the first picture of the farm from the road is just stunning! Wow.

I don’t have any ideas but I just had to comment on the stunning venue!

So jealous of your venue! I wish we had a family farm close to us we could use! I wouldn’t do too much, just some accessories here and there. I think something like lanterns or mason jars with tea lights would be gorgeous! 

Here’s some ideas: 

Flower pomanders 

Lanterns hanging from the trees and shepherds hooks 

Mason jars with candles or flowers 

A chandelier hanging from one of the trees (may be a little far fetched but I’ve seen pics of this on stylemepretty and they are always gorgeous!) 

Good luck, I can’t wait to see pics of your recap!

I would second the shepard hooks or possibly just a ribbon along the way to the ceremony?


If you have chairs and stuff set up, people will know to go to that area

@kimberleedawn:is there a fence around the garden?


We used family quilts draped over a fence to hide a pool pump! The quilt gave a pop of color, and everyone enjoyed seeing the various quilts from the family!
