A Romantic, Rustic Wedding at Laudholm Farm in Wells, Maine

From the lush ceremony accents on wooden stands to the bridesmaids' rose floor-length dresses, Caitlin Vassallo (26 and an elementary school teacher) and Mike Vassallo’s (26 and in sales) outdoor wedding is just the right mix of romance and rustic charm. The couple worked with Beautiful Days to fill their celebration with neutral, pink, gray and gold tone details alongside wooden accents and barrels. Mark Davidson Photography documented the day, which it started with a simple outdoor ceremony, moved to a barn cocktail hour and ended in a fun reception at Laudholm Farm. The couple’s florist from Beautiful Days created stunning tablescapes with a mixture of low floral centerpieces in gold breakaway vases and gold lanterns. Each arrangement included white and blush dahlias, white hydrangeas, green gerber daisies, pink roses, pink garden roses and dusty miller for a natural and romantic look. “We wanted the colors to really be soft and beautiful,” Caitlin says. “I really wanted the wedding to glow with the lights and flowers.” Caitlin also carried an eye-catching bouquet fit for a garden with blush roses, pink garden roses, white ranunculus, ivory roses and Japanese pieris. Her dress also complemented the arrangement's natural beauty. The team at Madeleine's Daughter in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, helped Caitlin find her wedding dress by Mikaella Bridal. “It was simple and elegant. I really wanted something that would match the beauty of the farm,” Caitlin says. She chose an all-lace strapless white gown with a sweetheart neckline. Caitlin shares a tip for future couples: “Enjoy the planning, and stick to what you want.”
