A Relaxed Destination Wedding at The Farm in Asheville, North Carolina

Six months after Jamie Melaragno (23 and a dancer) moved out to Colorado to be with Eric Schuler (26 and a soccer coach), he surprised her by proposing during the Fourth of July weekend with their families. Over the next year, Jamie and Eric worked to plan their North Carolina destination wedding from their home in Boulder, CO. "I planned our entire Asheville wedding from behind my computer so I put a lot of faith in the pictures on The Farm's website and it was even better in person!" says Jamie. The couple didn't want to coordinate their wedding around a theme or specific color palette and instead worked with neutral tones and seasonal flowers. The Farm offered an array of rustic-chic decorative items and place settings for Jamie and Eric to utilize. Burlap accents along with unique terrarium bell jar centerpieces created a welcoming feel. "From the lush green of the outdoor space and gazebo to the warmth of the indoor space with beautiful wood floors, stone fireplace and twinkle lights, I didn't feel like I needed to add much more decoration than our floral centerpieces," says Jamie.      "
