    Working with MK and Dave on their farm-to-table wedding was such a pleasure for me and our team at Epicure Catering and Cherry Basket Farm.  MK’s warmth and her enthusiasm for our venue and her marriage to Dave were contagious! We enjoyed working with her to pull together all of the details as she coordinated and planned from her home in Brooklyn.  She and Dave wanted their wedding celebration to feel warm and inviting and they succeeded in achieving this through simple yet elegant decor and farm style seating.  Below, MK talks about her wedding day and all of the things that made it special.  Cheers to you, MK & Dave! XOXO

    What attracted you to Cherry Basket Farm?

    EVERYTHING: The barn, the fields, the cherry trees, the food, the staff, and Cammie! The ambiance of the entire farm was what we were looking for.  It was such an added bonus that we loved working with Cammie and her team! They are beyond amazing; so professional and so helpful through every step of the process. We live in Brooklyn and planned the wedding remotely which was a challenge, but Cammie made everything so easy. I (MK, the bride) actually found Cherry Basket Farm through Instagram. I was up at my family cottage on Glen Lake during the summer of 2014. I was clicking through images tagged on Glen Lake, I somehow stumbled upon Amy Carroll’s Instagram account and she had just shot a wedding at the CBF. I became obsessed with it, stalking the CBF website, looking for pictures from other weddings. We did not get engaged for another year! But I just knew that is where we were meant to get married!

    How would you describe your style as a couple?

    Hmm tough question, modern, classic with an edgy twist

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

    We wanted it to feel like an intimate dinner party. We wanted our guests to feel like they were a part of our family. I think we executed that vibe with the long tables with low floral arrangements, lots of votives, and an amazing, delicious seated dinner followed up with an epic dance party!  Everyone was a part of our family that day!

    What were the most important elements of the big day?

    The ambiance, the food, the wine and the band!

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

    Go with your gut and try not overthink every detail. It can be stressful, so try and remember that no matter what you are going to have an amazing time.  Some good advice a friend told us was that on the day of the wedding, stop every few hours and look around, take a mental picture. Enjoy every second of it! It goes by so fast and you don’t get to relive it!
