Real Wedding: Jen + Dan

May 19, 2009

You guys, seriously, pay attention here. This wedding is really cute. And full of rustic barn-y loveliness that we are all totally in love with. And guess what? Jen is a reader! It is so amazing when one of our readers sends her wedding over. That’s why we’re here after all. And Jen’s wedding, on a farm in Maine (you’re speaking our language, girl!), makes us want to quit our day jobs and spend weeks collecting little pieces of ephemera and vintage jars and growing coastal wildflowers while our summer pies bubble away in the oven.

Plus she shared the video of her wedding too. NEAT!



Jen decorated the barn herself with the help of her super amazing friends. Mason jars! Weedy flowers! Rusty keys! Homemade jam! Globe lights! (We can’t stop).

Her escort cards were the antique keys with farm animal tags attached. And these matched up with little stamped river rocks at the place settings, which you can see in the invite shot.

Her invites were letterpressed by Pancake & Franks / Photography and video: Charlotte Jenks Lewis You can catch up with Jen on her blog, the haystack needle.
