Mary Ellen Maddalone (29 and an account manager for <i>Better Homes and Gardens</i>) and Michael (Mike) Somma’s (29 and a principal for Scopia Capital

Mary Ellen Maddalone (29 and an account manager for Better Homes and Gardens) and Michael (Mike) Somma’s (29 and a principal for Scopia Capital) celebration joined rustic elements with touches of classic elegance.

“I really love aspects of barn weddings as well as traditional, elegant themes,” Mary Ellen says. “It was important for us to find a balance between a rustic style and our country club venue.” A church ceremony played to the traditional, while overgrown floral arrangements spoke tothe day’s more natural influences.

With a wide array of greenery and raw wood elements paired with delicate white blooms, the couple’s florists walked the line between rustic and romantic for the country club reception. A pair of gilded deer on the couple’s cake nodded to Mike’s love for hunting.
