A Vintage, Bohemian Wedding at Friedman Farms in Dallas, Pennsylvania

T.C. Mazar (30 and an arborist) and Gabrielle LaScalla (30 and a teacher) met in their freshman year of high school. He was her first kiss. They dated for a few months before they went their separate ways for college and lost touch. After college, Gabrielle ran into T.C. at a local bar when she came home for the holidays. “The moment I saw him again, I just knew he was the one.” Gabrielle invited T.C. to a New Year’s Eve party she was throwing in Philadelphia, where she was living at the time. They rekindled their romance and dated long distance for four years before Gabrielle found a teaching position closer to their hometown. T.C. asked for Gabrielle’s parents’ blessing before proposing at Thanksgiving. The couple held their ceremony outside under the oak tree at Friedman’s Farm, with horses galloping in the background. “I loved the idea of DIY because I wanted to be a part of our special day as much as possible,” says Gabrielle. As a result, much of the wedding decor was mix-and-match, which went perfectly with the pastoral setting. The seating for the ceremony was a quirky mix of vintage armchairs and sofas. The reception was held at the farm’s barn, where chandeliers and fairy lights were strung from the rafters. Since T.C. is an arborist, it was only fitting that the table names were various tree species, like “Oak” and “Birch.” T.C. also made the wooden centerpieces that were set on tree trunks covered in lace. The table settings were rustic, with antique, mix-and-match china and cloth napkins with monogrammed wooden tags. T.C. and Gabrielle kept the color palette simple, using mostly neutral earth tones with occasional hints of blush and ivory. As a personal touch, Gabrielle hung dollies of her grandmother’s lace tablecloth between two ladders in the barn, creating a memorable backdrop to the reception. The bohemian and vintage style of the wedding beautifully reflected T.C. and Gabrielle as a couple.
