A Rustic, Outdoor Wedding at a Private Home in North Yarmouth, Maine

Even when she was a little girl, Megan Williams (30 and brand director at Marine Layer) knew she wanted to be married at her family’s 200-year-old far

Even when she was a little girl, Megan Williams (30 and brand director at Marine Layer) knew she wanted to be married at her family’s 200-year-old farmhouse in scenic North Yarmouth, Maine. So when Jordan Savage (31 and partner at E-Pantry) popped the question, finding a venue for the late-summer nuptials was easy for the San Francisco–based couple.

Naturally, the pair hosted their ceremony and reception outdoors. The lush, expansive fields and wild gardens served as inspiration for much of the decor, with Jordan’s mother, the force behind Seagrass Florals, creating showstopping bouquets and floral arrangements that were organic and utterly romantic. “The flowers and gardens made the event. They were huge, wild and beautiful,” Megan says. “I had no idea what Seagrass’s whole vision was until I showed up the morning of the wedding—and it exceeded my wildest dreams.”

Personal touches, from the custom menu to the groomsmen’s tailor-made bow ties to the Toots ice cream sundae bar, marked the day. And Celtic traditions, a nod to Jordan’s Scottish roots, were incorporated throughout the ceremony, from his kilt to a hand-fasting tradition and bagpipes. After dinner and drinks, local bluegrass band Jerks of Grass got guests dancing and carried the party late into the night, at which point the newlyweds and their guests indulged in homemade pizzas made in Megan’s father’s outdoor pizza oven. —Libby MacCarthy

The menu cards echoed the natural setting and featured watercolor florals in soft pastel hues. In lieu of traditional place cards, menus were hand-lettered in gold ink with the name of each guest.
Jordan’s mother, the genius behind Seagrass Florals, channeled the wild feel of the gardens at Megan’s parents' home in North Yarmouth, Maine. Each arrangement was filled with a mix of colorful wildflowers and classic pastel blooms.
The couple opted for classic table numbers, but the design was anything but standard. Birch bases boasted color-blocked twigs and watercolor numbers decorated with painted garlands.
Megan and Jordan looked largely to flowers to bring the ceremony decor to life, and no detail was overlooked. In addition to a striking wedding arch dripping in ivory and blush florals, the aisles were lined with textured arrangements of pink, white and blush wildflowers.
Megan always knew she wanted to get married at her family’s home in North Yarmouth, Maine, and with its farmhouse, gardens and acres of wheat-filled fields, it isn't difficult to see why. The couple carefully chose every decorative element to match the elegant-meets-rustic environment.
Wanting her bridesmaid dresses and her own gown to complement the land and the farmhouse, Megan decided on an elegant, laid-back aesthetic. “I’m all about comfort, and my style has always skirted the bohemian line,” Megan says. “It’s elegant but always comfortable.” She opted for a simple thin-strapped gown in an A-line silhouette and had her bridesmaids choose their own dresses in soft shades of ivory or blush.
“I love dahlias, specifically cafe au lait dahlias, so I wanted them to be at the core of the floral design,” Megan says of her textured bridal bouquet. Seagrass Florals created a cascading arrangement filled with dahlias, garden roses, peonies, spray roses, vines and wildflowers in shades of ivory, blush, blue and green.
Working with Jennie Gwilym of Catering to You, Megan and Jordan designed a custom menu of fresh seasonal eats that was a huge hit with guests. During cocktail hour, the catering team whipped up two signature cocktails—vodka-lavender lemonade and maple-mint bourbon iced tea—which were perfectly refreshing and also laid-back.
Megan and Jordan went big on flowers, having Seagrass Florals fill the serene natural setting with lush arrangements of garden-inspired blooms and textured wildflowers. For the ceremony, the aisles were lined with glass vases overflowing with fresh, colorful blooms. But it was the wedding arch that truly brought the decor to life. The elaborate structure,  dripping in hydrangeas, roses, olive leaves, vines and wheat, provided a striking backdrop for the couple’s vows.
