A Classic Wedding at a Private Residence in Far Hills, New Jersey

For Cameron (28 and a chief strategy officer) and Michael (37 and head of international business operations) wedding, their family and friends weren’t

For Cameron (28 and a chief strategy officer) and Michael (37 and head of international business operations) wedding, their family and friends weren’t just guests; they were the focus of the couple's entire celebration. Cam and Mike's  personally grown flowers, family-owned reception venue and fox details made the wedding even sweeter. Their family friend, Laurie Williams of Redshaw Flower Shop, designed every bouquet, centerpiece and altar accent. In fact, almost every color of bloom at the celebration was grown by Laurie and her grandmother. Even more, the couple had their reception at Cam’s grandparents’ farm in Far Hills, New Jersey. A go-to spot for holidays, it’s one of Cam’s favorite places and offered a sentimental touch to their day. Further embracing their family history, the couple used a slight fox-inspired motif to note her grandfather’s former hobby: fox hunting. Miniature foxes popped up throughout their stationery and even Mike’s cuff links. We love how every detail was meaningful to the couple.

In addition to their dresses, each bridesmaid had an accent with a little personal flair. Cam gave them chic navy clutches with gold zippers. A gold monogram with each woman’s initials stood out along the front. (The couple’s groomsmen mirrored these same colors with navy blue suits.)
Cam and Mike’s wedding party served as the main burst of color in their celebration. The bridesmaids looked stunning and bright poppy lace J.Crew dresses. The various necklines let them personalize the knee-length look. The groomsmen followed Mike’s lead and dressed for the afternoon fete in navy suits and matching Ferragamo ties.
Mike paired his custom blue suit with something special: gold, fox-inspired cuff links. “My dad’s father loved the sport of fox hunting, and the farm has fox emblems all around,” Cam says. “In honor of him, the fox symbol was a bit of a theme for our wedding.”
Cam, her sister and her mother found the bridesmaid dresses even before they picked out Cam's dress. Cam instantly fell in love with J.Crew’s poppy hue. “The farm’s landscapes have a lot of rolling green hills, so I knew the color would pop beautifully against its backdrop in pictures,” she says. Each woman wore the same Leaves dress with whatever neckline she desired and a down hairstyle. For some added personal flair, they chose their own jewelry and shoes.
While they selected the fox-inspired invitation suite from Minted.com, Cam and Mike made it their own with a few distinct details. The fox is a commonly seen symbol around her grandparents' farm in Far Hills, New Jersey. The navy and white color scheme highlighted each accent with classic detailing. To customize it even more, the couple sealed each envelope with her family crest from Cam’s father’s ring.
Adding an extra-personal touch to their day, Cam's 12 bridesmaids rode to their ceremony in a vintage family car. “When my cousins and I were younger, my grandfather acquired an antique REO Speed Wagon to carry the grandchildren to steeplechase races and other family events,” Cam says. “My bridesmaids rode to the wedding in the REO.” How cool is that!
“Immediately after getting engaged, Mike and I knew that we wanted to get married at St. Brigid and host our reception on my grandparents’ farm in Far Hills, New Jersey,” Cam says. Her family regularly attends church at St. Brigid, making it a sweet and personal place to say “I do.” She walked in with her uncle to “Celebrate Me Home” by Kenny Loggins, a song she and her father used to dance to. White hydrangeas and white bows marked every aisle alongside hanging glass votives.
After a traditional ceremony filled with readings from their family members, Cam and Mike started their joyful recessional. Their love for white and green came out in every piece of decor. White hydrangeas tied to white bows and hanging clear glass votives highlighted each pew with a natural design.
Of course, Cam and Mike's classic wedding came with a chic exit. She drove with her uncle to the church in her grandfather Murphy’s 1961 Mercedes convertible. After she and Mike exchanged vows, the vintage car became their exit ride. “Riding in that car to and from the ceremony was one of my favorite parts of the day,” Cam says.
“None of our flower choices were sentimental; we just liked the white and green aesthetic,” Cam says. The pros at Redshaw Flower Shop filled her bouquet with all-white calla lilies, hydrangeas, lisianthus, ranunculus and veronica. Bunches of green hypericum berries and leaves added some texture to the mix. To make the arrangement a bit more personal, Cam had each stem wrapped in her great-grandmother’s lace.
Keeping with their classic wedding style, Cam and Mike covered each long reception table with simple white and green accents. White hydrangeas, orchids and ranunculus highlighted the seating from a breakaway vase. But what made the party even more customized was their sentimental location on her grandparents' farm. “My dad’s family spends every Thanksgiving and Easter together—along with an assortment of other holidays and gatherings—on Spook Hollow Farm,” Cam says. “Many of my happiest memories are of my 20 cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents spending time together on the farm.”
Each arrangement from Redshaw Flower Shop added a natural touch to the couple’s tented reception. White hydrangeas, lisianthus and orchids filled the center while green dianthus, green hypericum berries and leaves highlighted each side. Green ribbon also wrapped around each clear glass breakaway vase to represent their soft wedding color.
The couple’s menu also featured their fox motif. Each DIY white card carried on their navy and white colors with a whimsical circular design. One detail that was left off the menu, however, was the surprise late-night treat. “Our late-night snacks were mini Philly pretzels, mini mac and cheese and mini grilled cheeses,” Cam says. “They were a huge hit.”
Instead of a formal wedding cake, Cam and Mike opted for a slew of other sweets. Max Hansen Caterer baked a series of desserts, including these lemon curd and raspberry shooters. Guests who wanted a different treat sampled Italian butterscotch pudding, flourless warm chocolate pudding, mini peanut butter cookies and mini milkshakes. Yum!
Since her grandparents’ farm in Far Hills, New Jersey, has tons of family memories, it was only fitting that Cam and Mike take a stroll around the grounds after their ceremony. He walked in front of her in a custom navy suit tailored by Caruso. He paired it with a poppy Hermes tie to match the bridesmaid dresses. Its horseshoe print, combined with his fox-inspired cuff links, made the look even more personalized.
