Lauren Mulligan (24 and a fitness specialist) and Daniel Mulligan (25 and a crossfit coach) wanted their guests to feel like family. "We didn't want our guests to feel like they were at a performance," Lauren says. "We wanted our wedding to feel warm and family-oriented." To foster this feeling of closeness, Lauren and Daniel chose to have a long farmhouse table down the center of their barn reception. They also opted for a family-style dinner to complement the farmhouse tables.  The barn at Sleepy Hollow Farm was warm and intimate, with string lights illuminating the space. To match the rustic setting, Lauren and her bridesmaids wore cowboy boots to the wedding. These went perfectly with the knee-length blush bridesmaid dresses that featured lace overlay. Lauren herself wore a strapless A-line wedding dress that also featured lace details. The bridal party carried bouquets with white hydrangeas and blueberries to tie into the wedding's navy and blush color palette. Daniel and his groomsmen complemented the bridesmaids' look by dressing in navy suits and pink ties. Erika Mills Photography captured all the pretty details from the day!
