A Summer Farmhouse Wedding at a Private Residence in New Gloucester, Maine

With a farmhouse fete in mind, Margaret (Margie) Fiori (28 and a social worker) and Talicia Jackson (29 and a medical student) looked to rustic touches like wildflowers, mason jars and barbecue fare to capture the laid-back vibe of their wedding’s country locale. Taking advantage of the picturesque setting, the pair hosted both the ceremony and reception on Margie’s parents’ lawn, providing views of scenic meadows and a quaint pond. Wildflower centerpieces and local honey reflected the farmhouse theme and offered guests a sweet way to remember the summer soiree. The day was truly a labor of love, with the invitations designed by a close friend, the blooms a gift from Margie’s sister’s farm and the ceremony officiated by Margie’s dad. When it came to their attire, Talicia opted for a bold burgundy suit and lace blouse, while Margie donned a classic white gown. After dinner, the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed apple cider donuts and root beer floats before a night of dancing in the barn.
