Emily and Ben are a beautiful one-of-a-kind couple and their wedding reflects that in the best ways. The whole day looks light and airy with heaps of fun and loveliness.
We don’t want to spoil the surprise, but we guarantee the bride and groom’s choice of evening wedding activities will not be anything close to what you might imagine. Scroll to the end to see exactly what they were up to! In the meantime if you want to see more of this amazing rustic purple farm wedding, click here to see the full gallery.

Flowers Grown On Site
All of the flowers that were used in the wedding were grown in the garden on-site at Warwick Farm. Farm and venue owner Page Price planted Emily’s bridal garden in the early spring and planted seasonal blooms like Cottage Roses and Succulents that adorned the bridal bouquets, tables, and boutonnières. The Head Table donned a long antique gutter filled with succulents. The showpiece, however, was the beautiful flower chandelier that hung from the barn ceiling at the center of the room.
Short Engagement Benefits
Ben and I had a rather short engagement (8 months) – something that I would highly suggest to other brides. If the wedding planning processes was longer, I feel like I would have stressed out about the details much more than I had done in the months before my wedding rather than make firm decisions. I bought the sixth dress I tried on, my Bridesmaids purchased their Bridesmaids dresses the first time I looked at them and the only wedding venue I looked at, I booked!
Warwick Farm, located in rural Mount Vernon, Ohio, was the perfect venue for the couple. From the English gardens, greenhouses, antique milking parlor and guest to the whimsical chicken coupe adjoining the gardens, Warwick Farm provided Ben and Emily with the best of both worlds – both beauty and fun. Best of all, is that Emily and Ben get to pass Warwick Farm every day on the way to work and remember that special place where they got married.
Photographer Married At Same Venue
Emily’s photography style is playful, fun and soft – highlighting those impromptu moments that make the real “Kodak Moments”. After searching many blogs and wedding websites, Emily found Cait Rose Photography and immediately fell in love with her style, photos and personality. One of the coolest things about this relationship is that Emily and Ben found out that Caitlin was married at the same venue with one of the first weddings Warwick Farm ever hosted.
Relax And Go For It!
Another piece of advice I would like to give is to RELAX. Things will go wrong on your wedding day. Plan your seating charts, processional into the reception, and other arrangements as far as you can in advance, so you can enjoy your family, friends, and fiancé before the wedding. One of the best parts of getting married is having your family and friends celebrating with you, so keep your mind on them and not on the details. The outlook I had in the beginning was if you want something that bad for your wedding – just go for it. You can have a beautiful wedding with special pieces on a budget – just make sure to shop savvy!
Flaming Watermelon Toss, Say What?
B’s Sugar Buzz created a gorgeous 4-tiered cake with strawberry, white with strawberry filling and white with lemon filling tiers. The top of the cake did not don a cake topper, but instead used a simple wrap-around flower display from flowers grown on the farm. For a special night time activity, the couple had a Photo Booth and also used a trebuchet made by the farm owners to launch Watermelons at dusk. It was a fun event to see flaming watermelons sail through the air!
Can’t believe your eyes and want to see it happen in motion?! Watch the video below, filmed by Werner Entertainment, to see the full day unfold, including flying flaming watermelons of course!
