Claire and Osmar were married in authentic rustic style at the John Eyler Farmstead* on October 19, 2021. Photographer Mariandree Piaz captured these beautiful images of the venue from a neighboring hillside. On the National Registry of Historic Places, the Farmstead, circa 1820, holds a century of agricultural and architectural history. There remain the ruins of a springhouse – small pre-plumbing and electricity storage shed built atop a stream – from the very first family to set down roots in the valley, as well as numerous outbuildings added in later years, including the original farmhouse and the large barn where Claire and Osmar’s guests were seated for the reception.
The farmstead made an authentically rustic spot for a romantic wedding, with the ceremony taking place under a flowered arbor near a large willow, alongside the original brick farmhouse.
The farmhouse is a brick building that combines Federal and Greek Revival architectural styles. Much of the original woodwork remains intact inside the home.
The color palette was a soft combination of dusty blue shoes, pastel pink roses, and the weathered wood of the barn.
The aqua blue, vintage pick-up truck belongs to the Farmstead, and made a perfect spot for a tailgate welcome table.
Flower girls spread rose petals along the aisle, leading to an arbor lushly decorated with pale pink roses and greenery.
Sometimes we get a little tired of seeing so many wooden signs, but we could look at this one all day – perfectly garnished with rustic greenery and delicate roses and adorned with a hand-drawn flower motif, it was the perfect touch for a farm wedding.
*The Farmstead is not available for rental at this time, but we will definitely let you know if that changes!
