Rustic DIY Wedding at Smolak Farms in North Andover, Massachusetts
When Emily Butterfield (29, elementary school teacher) met Nicholas Gagnon (30, brewer) through her college roommate (who happens to be Nick's cousin) she was certain he wasn't for her. They only went on a couple of dates before their fledgling relationship fizzled out completely. Despite their failed romance, Emily remained close to his sister, Jen. In fact, it was at Jen's wedding three years later that Emily and Nick reconnected—and started dating soon after. They were together for two years before he proposed in their backyard on their second anniversary. The couple chose a rustic farm on the outskirts of Boston for their fun, relaxed wedding day complete with a campfire, lawn games, a sundae bar, photo booth and a custom beer Nick brewed himself. ?Whimsical wooden signs and a summery color palette of pale yellow and sage green pulled it all together.
