A Rustic Fall Wedding in the Woods at the Barn at Fallingwater in Mill Run, Pennsylvania
Amy Deneselya, 29, a ceramic artist, and J.D. Romero, 31, a management consultant, met at one of J.D.'s shows when they played in Cleveland, Ohio and continued their relationship from there. The couple got engaged on the day Amy turned 28, and J.D. proposed with a round cut white sapphire ring picked out by Amy from GNGJewel Etsy shop. Although they had been living in Chicago, Illinois, the couple wanted to have a "destination wedding" and an untraditional celebration filled with DIY projects. When the couple came across the Barn at Fallingwater in Mill Run, Pennsylvania, they immediately knew it was the simple yet unique enough venue they had been searching for. "We were so in love with the setting of the venue already that we didn't want to take away from its charm, so we liked the idea of bringing natural elements into our decorations," says Amy. Amy and J.D. hired a florist to decorate their wedding with simple touches of moss, fern, and succulents, throwing the occasional antlers into the mix. The accents of wood incorporated into the natural environment gave the wedding a rustic vibe, with built-in wooden benches at the ceremony, planks of wood supporting the centerpieces, and the surrounding wooded area at large.
