We are getting so close to the fall here in the DMV and I can’t think of a fall wedding that better celebrates the autumn season than Alexa and Ben’s wedding in Maryland! Alexa and Ben hosted a beautiful outdoor, farm wedding in the fall at the rustic Smokey Glen Farm property in Gaithersburg, Maryland. The couple “tied the knot” (quit literally, see below!) and celebrated their wedding reception in the same location, which was filled with lots of fabulously rustic DIY wedding details. The fashion, especially the bride’s gorgeous gown, was a standout in design for their big day! Alexa’s bridal style was effortless and elegant, just right in the natural setting; while her ‘maids were dressed pretty in pink tones perfect for fall. (We can’t get enough of the fantastic tug-of-war game that the wedding party played after the ceremony to signifying a true “tying the knot”!) I’d be remise if I didn’t mention their bouquets, oh their bouquets! They are paper flowers made by the bride’s grandmother! Absolutely stunning! I’m truly smitten with Alexa and Ben’s wedding photos from Pangtography all planned to perfection from the team at Candy+Co. Events.
From the bride: We wanted a wedding that was low key and focused out the outdoors, trees, and natural colors. We both rock climb, so we also incorporated knots in our theme. A favorite detail from the day was the geese flying overhead while we were married under a beautiful, fall tree.
Congratulations to Alexa and Ben! Thank you for sharing your fall, jewel tone outdoor wedding with us! Stay tuned, up next we’re showing you their fall farmhouse wedding reception in Maryland.
