the perfect dinner party

the photographs from this New England wedding have me pining for some chilly air, pumpkin bisque, a cold beer, and some warm conversation. an outdoor dinner party complete with a woodsy sunset and a bluegrass band sounds divine about now.

i'd want all my family from the midwest, my dear friends who are in africa and italy, my fiance and his family, and all our closest friends all sitting at one long barn table. as i plan our wedding, i've been desperately trying to figure out how to seat a larger sized wedding at a table like this - or at least to convey the feeling that we're all just home for dinner. any suggestions?


  1. I love this same vibe...could we possibly do a rehearsal dinner like this?

  2. we had 120 guests and did two big long tables of 60 with farm tables -- it was amazing and felt so intimate -- we could see everyone. check out a photo here: highly recommend it!!

  3. I love your pictures, Mary. Your wedding looks absolutely gorgeous. I'm in love with your tables. Thanks for the suggestion!
