Our team was excited to plan and coordinate a wedding at a private horse farm overlooking Saratoga Lake! After many months of planning all the details came together for Emily and Michael’s special day.

The stationary sets the tone for the entire wedding planning process and working with Jenny C. Designs is so easy! She’s able to meet with us and the client and we can really design something custom to them and their special day! Emily loved the soft greens and natural touches of the watercolor leaves.

The copper wax seal matched the copper accents at the barn property #LOVE

After all, they were getting married outdoors on a horse farm!

These welcome bags were so cute – not only were they filled with local favorites, but were stamped to include the city, state and zip of the wedding location on a reusable tote.

Behind the scenes story about the mirror below!
It was a beautiful welcome piece for the ceremony but with any outdoor event, the weather is unpredictable. Unfortunately, a gust of wind took this piece with it and it did not last through the reception! RIP Glass Mirror!

We started the weekend with a rehearsal overlooking the lake and horse pastures. After a rainy week we were happy to see blue skies.

Helping the bride take those last few steps before she’s in the car and on her way to meet her husband is so rewarding! Having her know she is taken care of at every moment is our goal. Dress is held, flowers taken care of and dads in tow.

Getting ready at The Pavilion Grand was perfect for this bridal party! A clean and quiet space before traveling over to the farm was just what this bride was looking for.

Now time for the ceremony details….

The ceremony over looked the lake between two beautifully mature trees. Renaissance Floral Design did a breathtaking job of creating the romantic look with rustic touches.

There is not a bad view from any angle on this property! 19260322 1622662504442064 2239424407281428896 n 456x608 Borisenok WeddingCeremony129 608x404 Borisenok Wedding

Being in a tented location, at a private residence, requires all hands on deck nice and early to make sure that all of the moving pieces are in place for a smooth day!  We love that we were able to use spaces under and outside the tent.

The tent was not your typical rectangle, it was an oval sail cloth style tent, and was absolutely stunning with the acres of horse farm as the backdrop. Pember from Rain or Shine did an amazing job with rentals.

Gorgeous table runners, candles, and dripping chandeliers pulled this tent together!

Note: Consider a quadrant of dips and spreads instead of the traditional bread and butter plate!

It makes us laugh when we get caught in action. Here’s a moment of CW cueing and updating the Mother of the Groom with what is going to happen next. Something that our clients love about our Day of Coordination service.

The bride and her father shared a dance with a single red rose, as a remembrance, to the bride mother who had passed. There was not a dry eye in the house!Reception340 405x608 Borisenok Wedding

BOW RIBBON HORZ1 120x120 Borisenok WeddingToday’s Takeaway:  If there is a property in your family, that could be used to host a large event; don’t be afraid to explore it as an option. Venues with sentimental value and family history make the most beautiful backdrops for these special moments.
