Lin & Pat’s DIT Massachusetts Farm Wedding

* Lin, Product Manager & Pat, Optician * Photographer: TC Fitzgerald * Soundtrack for reading: “I Got You” by Wilco *

One sentence sum up of the wedding vibe: A happy day at the farm surrounded by awesome family, friends, great food, and lots and lots of dancing.




The Info—Photographer: TC Fitzgerald, Lin and Pat’s friend’s dad who is also a talented documentary photographer / Location: East Falmouth, Massachusetts / Venue: Coonamessett Farm / Lin’s Dress: Priscilla’s of Boston, ($300 at their going out of business sample sale) / Pat’s Suit: John Varvatos, from Nordstrom / Bridesmaid Dress: Nordstrom / Ushers: J. Crew shirts and ties / Ringbearer: J. Crew / Table Vases: Salong from IKEA / Flowers: Windfall Market / Hand-Beaded Flowers: Done by Pat and Lin with instructions from Martha Stewart / Animal Place Cards: Down on the Farm Toobs with their mouths cut open

Other cool stuff we should know about: We made our wedding affordable and very us by making a lot of it ourselves with our kind, generous, and talented friends. We started our day together with a morning swim. A swim with friends was the perfect de-stressing way kick-off the day. The farm animals weren’t the only animals around—our dog Freddy was a prized member of the wedding party. He was walked down the aisle by one of Pat’s brothers. He sported a navy blue bow-tie and stayed with us all through the party.

We made most of the decorations ourselves: All of our bouquets, boutonnieres, and table settings featured hand-beaded flowers, which Lin beaded and Pat assembled. We made over a hundred of them. Each guest had a tiny plastic farm animal with their name stuck in its mouth. Each guest also had a card with an alpaca stamp with their name and the request to swap their card with a Polaroid. We got some amazing candid pictures with that Polaroid instead of a photo-booth.

Our cake was made by our friend Meghan. She is not a professional, but she’s the best baker we know. It was a vanilla cake with raspberry filling and lemon meringue butter-cream frosting. She made our beautiful cake, decorated it with fresh flowers, and made hundreds of cupcakes (with the assistance of her boyfriend/our friend Ash). She also introduced us to her dad, who gave us a great deal on his photography services. Lin’s brother-in-law, Brian, DJed (with his friend Amy) and they gave the night the perfect soundtrack mix, which packed the dance floor.

Favorite thing about the wedding: All our family and friends who donated their time and talents to put together a rocking dance-party celebration that felt completely ours.
