It’s no secret we love working at Maplehurst Farm and just about half of our weddings occur there each year. From the Maple tree lined drive, rustic barn, vintage furniture and fields of crops to get photos in, how could you not adore it!?
If you are a Maplehurst Bride, this is the post for you! We’re breaking down some of our favorite ways to best utilize what the venue has the offer and multiple ways about how to add your own personality to the mix.
The Maple Tree Ceremony Space:
I have always been partial the having ceremonies in the driveway, especially during the fall! The easy access off from the parking lot and natural flow from the ceremony to the cocktail hour is great.
Many of my couples go with this option for a rustic ceremony look or the plan B weather contingency plan for the garden ceremony site. Having the ceremony here and using the large Maplehurst wood arbor, gives you the perfect opportunity to flip the decor and utilize it elsewhere in the reception space.
The large wood arbor is just one of my favorite pieces. The versatility of adding greenery, floral, drapery and even macrame can transform it. If you look closely at the photos, there is actually a front and backside that look slightly different. That little detail can make all the difference depending how you’re wanting the design to look.
The Garden Ceremony Space:
Oh, the garden ceremony space. With the gardens and fields as your backdrop, you can get away with minimal decor and let the natural beauty of the space be the main focus for those sunny summer days.
Indoor Wedding Ceremony:
Of my four years being in the wedding industry and coordinating Maplehurst Farm Weddings, I’ve only had one indoor ceremony. There are many challenges, but with the right team it can be done with ease!
For the ceremony we used the right portion of the room for the ceremony itself with chairs setup. Once the ceremony was over we had everyone head into the side room for a (very cozy) cocktail hour. During this time we had a team ready to move the preset tables from the left side of the room into the main reception space where the ceremony originally took place.
