    When we worked with Brittany and Bryan to plan their farm wedding, we were struck by their sweetness and enthusiasm for each other and their life together.  As self-proclaimed foodies, they were a delight to work with in the menu planning process and to cook for on their special day.  They wanted their wedding to be relaxed and fun and achieved this through simple yet sophisticated decor, yard games and of course, their sweet and easy-going personalities! Brittany was kind enough to share her thoughts on their big day below.  Cheers B & B!

    What attracted you to Cherry Basket Farm?

    The moment you see photos of the Cherry Basket Farm or have the opportunity to see it for yourself, you become immediately drawn to it.  The property exudes natural beauty with its stunning white-barn, lush greenery, and quiet ambiance. Bryan and I knew, almost instantaneously, that this was the place we wanted to say our “I do’s” at and celebrate with our closest family and friends. Surprisingly enough, that is only the beginning….

    Cammie, Andy Schudlich, and their team are truly unbelievable. We didn’t only choose CBF for their venue, but we chose them for their service.  Having worked with Cammie and Andy before, I knew they were like no other.  They are top-notched in preparation, service, and execution. Not having to worry about anything on the day of the wedding is every couple’s dream come true. They are simply the best!!

    How would you describe your style as a couple?

    Modern, rustic chic.

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

    One of our favorite things to do is to get together with our friends at one of our houses to drink, play games, laugh, and relax.  We wanted our wedding to mimic our weekend hangouts but on a bigger scale.  Most of all, we wanted our guests to relax and enjoy themselves just as much as we knew we would.

    What were the most important elements of the big day?

    There is so much beauty on the property, so we wanted to make sure that our details did not take that away. However, I (the bride) am such a detail oriented person, that I had to add in some things here and there to really make it ours. We added in simple details through our floral (we did a lot of greenery, natural moss, and air plants), table elements, as well as subtle leather touches.

    Bryan and I share an immense passion for food, so that was a huge element shared by the both of us.  We thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the menu making process and wanted our guests to enjoy all the dishes that were chosen for our special day.  Needless to say, they did, and continue to still talk about how amazing everything tasted.

    As cliche as it sounds, we wanted our guests to just have fun. Whether it be dancing in the barn, playing yard games, or conversing in the tent after dinner, we just wanted everyone to have a great time celebrating.

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

    To find those hidden moments to take it all in with your soon-to-be husband/wife during the planning process.  The day itself is over in a flash, so just enjoy it all.
