My goodness, this eco-friendly farm wedding from Sarah Der Photography is just overflowing with love and happiness- you are going to love it! Helen and Bill wanted a down-to-earth, locally sourced wedding, and Asheville, North Carolina was the absolute perfect setting.
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
My wonderful husband. It was a true team effort! We had the groom’s to do list, the bride’s to do list, and the together to do list :) The days leading up to the wedding were “all hands on deck.” Our families and closest friends spent the two days before the wedding at the farm venue setting up with us.
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
We wanted to pick experienced vendors who were willing to give us the freedom to plan the day to our liking, while providing expert assistance and guidance where helpful.
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
Helen works on sustainable agricultural advocacy and Bill works on environmental protection causes, so we wanted our entire wedding to convey an down-to-earth, eco-friendly farm experience. We were especially proud of the locally sourced food, beer, and flowers!
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
Committing ourselves to each other before our favorite people on a beautiful sunny day at an amazing farm with baby goats, lawn games, good food, and dancing. Just what we had always envisioned!
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
Even if you cannot afford or don’t want to hire a wedding planner, do hire a day-of-coordinator. Our wonderful day-of coordinator ensured that the entire day flowed smoothly and that no special moments were missed and was critical to the flawlessness of our wedding day!
Absolutely amazing advice from Helen! It’s so worth it to not have to worry about anything on your wedding day, don’t you think?
So are any of you planning on at least having a day-of (or month-of) coordinator like Helen and Bill had? I’d love to hear!
