Homemade Farm Wedding with a Black Wedding Dress

Maeg and Rob describe themselves as ‘non-traditional humans’, which I think is a lovely intro to their wedding, held on their own farm in Washington. Their total budget was $5000.

“We drew our inspiration from our farm and the years that we have spent here,” Maeg explains. “Instead of putting our money into a venue we’d only use for a couple of hours, we opted to put money back into the property where we’ll spend the rest of our lives.”

It was a truly personal affair, with only 45 guests. Their close friend became ordained just so he could be the officiant, and Maeg’s nine-year-old son escorted her down the aisle. One of her dogs also ended up walking her down the aisle too! “Our matted old rescue farm dog wouldn’t leave my side all day.

Rock n Roll Bride helped us realise that we could achieve our goal while sticking to a budget and maintaining a low stress experience through planning our wedding. All in all, the focus of our wedding was to be romantic, personal, and low stress to plan. We probably could have gone more all out with a fantasy theme, but instead chose to keep things simple.”

As a hint to their theme, Mercedes wore fantasy inspired accessories with her wedding dress. “I have a bit of an alternative appearance and style and chose to wear a light blue and lavender dress as well as Elven and fantasy inspired accessories. Roman has bit of an eclectic and vintage style and was happy that he wore something a bit different from a standard tuxedo.”
