When I met Margo and her Mom, I knew that I was dealing with some tight bonds. I was instantly encouraged to be working with them-a tight mother and daughter team is extremely admirable to me, having two little ones of my own. They had a clear vision for their day and needed some help executing their ideas and maybe offering a few more to make it extra special. Shortly after our first meeting, I got to meet Miguel.
These two are probably one of the most adorable couples I’ve been privileged to know. Margo is super friendly and outgoing (wildly comedic, I might add) and Miguel is soft spoken and has a more reserved way about him. Their personalities are so complimentary to one another that merely watching them interact is a treat. They met through mutual friends while Margo attended B.U. six years prior to their engagement and the story, in Miguel’s words, goes like this:
“One night this past December, Margo and I went out for Chinese food and a movie to celebrate 6 years together. We started talking about the future and what was ahead of us in the next few years. Whenever we would start to talk about our lives, I would always bring up our ‘5-year plan’, which was a way for me to look ahead and forecast the direction of where I see our lives going. I started outlining the plan when Margo replied, “Well Migzy, that’s the same plan you had last year… It’s now a 4 year plan.” She was right. It finally dawned on me that life is moving forward regardless of me and my ‘5-year plan’. “Well, I guess we should think about getting married before I go to grad school next year.” I said. “So what do you think about next summer?” Margo asked. “Yea, that sounds good,” I replied. “You really want to marry me?!” she said as happy tears welled up in her eyes. “Yeah, let’s do it!” I said smiling.
We then kissed, smiled, and laughed as Margo’s tears ran down her cheeks and into her Wonton soup. We finished our yummy dinner and proceeded to float to the movie theater.”
Yeah, I pretty much love that story.
Super stylish ‘Migzy’ in a J. Crew number…embroidery detail swoon!
Miguel’s Dad made a custom cornhole game for guests to play throughout the day, as well as some beautiful wooden signs that directed guests to the ceremony and reception. The day was picture perfect!
Margo had close friends of hers perform the music for the ceremony that took place in the barn. Margo’s engagement and wedding ring belonged to her maternal grandmother. The wedding band was made in the 1940’s during WW2 when her Grandparents were married. It is made of palladium because platinum was being used to make weaponry and war vehicles. It has hand carved initials of her grandparent’s inside. The engagement ring was designed by Margo’s grandparents in the 50’s and is platinum (after the war). The diamonds have been in her Mother’s family since the 1800’s. How incredibly special is that?

The ceremony was very sweet with the two’s nearest and dearest on either side.
That breathtaking bouquet was put together by none other than Stacy Brenner of Flora Bliss.
14 star vote on this shot! My favorite!
Margo’s shoes were from Anne Klein and Miguel’s were from the L.L. Bean Signature line.
Margo and Miguel made strawberry rhubarb vodka, paired it with lemonade and called it ‘The Gardener’. Miguel studied Science with an emphasis in Environmental Studies and currently works in that field, so his drink, appropriately called ‘The Scientist’ involved ginger lemon infused whiskey.
Place cards were attached to mason jars that directed guests to a particular garden or farm themed table name.
They also keep bees and make honey with Margo’s mom, called Red Shed Honey, which was served with cheeses on the hors d’oeuvre display. Their adorable cake topper was handmade by indigotwinweddings on Etsy.
The cake and cupcakes were created by Cakes by Babbs, and some other amazing gluten free options by Bam Bam Bakery. We had so much fun designing this table for them, using vintage cupcake pans, cooling racks, enamel bowls, mixer and old baking utensils to convey a look of just baked treats coming out of the oven…cupcake signs were printed on faded and stained index cards.
We are so happy to have worked with you cutie pies! Margo and Miguel, wishing you many more glorious days ahead!
A special thank you to Matt Cosby Photography who rocked it out with these incredible photos!
