We just love this wedding theme. And it seems perfect for couples planning a wedding in Southern Maryland. It’s become more popular over the past few years. Is it because of its simple elegance factor?
Planning a rustic country wedding may be one of the most versatile wedding themes because you can take elements from so many other types of wedding themes and incorporate them and they just work! We love how brides are mixing burlap, galvanized pails, chalkboards, metal mailboxes, old windows and shutters with bouquets of roses in birch tree vases and blue mason jars. Whether a farm, a barn, or outdoor wedding in your backyard, think of incorporating country, vintage, garden, or even vineyard into your rustic country theme.
Southern Maryland offers a wide range of reception sites that are the perfect venue to host a rustic country themed wedding. Here are just a few that feature barns on the property!
- Flora Corner Farm
- Greenwell State Park
- Historic St. Mary’s City
- Jefferson Patterson Park
- Running Hare Vineyard
- Sotterley Plantation
- Weatherly Farm
And there are a lot more locations that you can celebrate indoors, while keeping with the theme as well. The Butterfield wedding featured below, which was featured in our 10-year Anniversary Issue, transformed the inside of Hollywood Fire Department into a woodland paradise.
