    I love these two! Laid back and fun, Mikki and Jeff wanted their farm wedding to echo their personal style. Guests were treated to a fantastic meal and fabulous wine. Decor was minimal, as the couple wanted the property to speak for itself. Focusing on fine food and drink and a relaxed, casual atmosphere gave Jeff and Mikk’s farm wedding just the right mix of sophistication and style. I want to do it all over again!

    What attracted you to Cherry Basket Farm?

    The property itself is beautiful! An August wedding found the trees and flowers in full bloom! The barn and surrounding grounds were spectacular and made for the perfect reception! Epicure & Cherry Basket Farms came highly recommended. Just one visit and it was love at first site!

    How would you describe your style as a couple?

    Simple elegance/casual sophistication

    What was the overall vibe and feel you wanted your guests to experience at the wedding?

    We wanted a sophisticated, casual feel to our wedding—nothing too formal. Our goal was to host a great dinner party with “slightly” nicer outfits! As self proclaimed foodies we wanted our guests to have an experience that shared our passion for food, wine and their friendship. Cherry Basket Farms far exceeded these dreams with the most amazing celebratory feast.

    What were the most important elements of the big day?

    Fun / Food / Drink! We wanted those elements to be directed by Cammie and Chef Andy and produced by us. We could not have been in better hands. The crew at Cherry Basket Farms took care of us like we were family.

    What advice would you give to engaged couples as they move through the planning process?

    Simple is better. Put your inner control freak to be. Limit Pinterest exposure and listen more, talk less.
