  • Use of natural materials: Embrace the beauty of nature with wood (think slabs, crates, furniture), burlap (runners, tablecloths, accents), lace (romantic tablecloths, overlays, chair sashes), and twine (hanging lanterns, escort cards).
  • Incorporate vintage items: Add a touch of history and character with mason jars (centerpieces, candle holders), lanterns (lighting, aisle markers), and old window panes (decor, signage).
  • String lights or fairy lights: Create a magical ambiance with twinkling lights draped across ceilings, trees, or strung along fences.
  • Candles: Warm candlelight in lanterns, hurricane glasses, or scattered on tables adds a romantic and inviting glow.
  • Chandeliers: Take the rustic theme up with chandeliers made from branches or rustic metal for a unique focal point.

We had our wedding here back in March and it was everything I could’ve hoped for! It was a destination wedding so we were planning from the other side of the country, but Amy was absolutely amazing with communicating and going through all the details we’d otherwise would have forgotten about. Day of went seamlessly! We were always told to hope for the best but plan for something to go wrong and if something did, we had no idea! The decorations were perfect, food was great, DJ was awesome, and the staff was lovely.

I can’t even begin to express how amazing the staff and accommodations are at Legacy Farms. From start to finish, they handled every little detail. Every single staff member made me and my friends and family feel amazing and welcome. The food, the decor, the cake, everything was more than I expected. We did the full weekend package and it was absolutely worth every penny! I did not have a single worry the entire time. :-) They also recommended the absolute best photographer (Laura K. Allen) and videographer (Griffin Dunn) EVER!! Legacy Farms truly took care of ALL of our needs.
