Planning + Design
Mix a cool-toned color palette with copper accents, bespoke lighting installations, and tons of thoughtful details, and you’ll have Chrissy + Mike’s coastal-inspired Marianmade Farm wedding. From start to finish, A Family Affair of Maine nailed it with the attention to detail seen throughout the ceremony and reception and we could not be more proud of our contribution to the ambiance and overall design!

On a beautiful day in August, Chrissy and Mike invited their closest family and friends to celebrate their love at Marianmade Farm with the help of a stunning, custom invitation suite by The Chatty Press. The customized paper goods featured many indications of the beautiful color palette and design elements that would set the tone for their coastal-themed celebration that was to come.
Carrying a loose bouquet of white florals and greenery by Field Floral Studio, Chrissy walked down the aisle toward Mike who was waiting at the water’s edge, flanked by his groomsmen in grey suits and the bridesmaids in shades of lavender. Guests enjoyed views of the ceremony from benches on the perfectly green lawn, taking in the sites and sounds of the stunning property while watching the bride and groom become husband and wife.
For cocktail hour, guests were invited to grab drinks from the bar which featured a custom installation of a wooden branch adorned with rope, leafy greens, and bulbs hanging from various lengths. Just inside the clear-top tent, all eyes were on the drool-worthy charcuterie table spread that was highlighted by our display of hanging wicker baskets overhead. A cozy lounge space complete with a blue velvet couch and comfy chairs kept guests comfortable before being invited in the barn for dinner.
The reception took place inside Marianmade Farm’s timber-framed Lavendar Drying House and it could not have been more beautiful. Table tops were draped in blue linens paired with copper cafe chairs and tablescapes full of organically arranged centerpieces, taper candles in hurricane vases, and beautifully curated place settings. Our lighting installation above the center reception table was a showstopping display and we are so proud of the visual beauty it added to the space!
Following dinner, the celebration moved back outside to the clear top tent where the newlyweds and their guests would dance until after sundown. As the sun began to set, the tent glowed with beauty and so much love for Chrissy and Mike at their Marianmade Farm wedding!
