Wow, where do I even begin with describing the beauty of this day! I loved this wedding not only because of the couple, but the uniqueness of the venue. It was the first time this venue has held a wedding and they are just starting to get their name out there. The farm, Blue Door Farm (website coming soon), was built and owned by Oprah Winfrey. When the current owner took over the farm she left everything with the property. So all the decor etc.. was owned by Oprah.
Danae and Paul brought everything in for this wedding themselves, and a lot of it was hand made by the couple and their family members. It was truly one of those weddings I will never forget and I am so grateful to have met Paul and Danae. They are a true example of soul mates. Congratulations my friends, I am so happy for you both!

A note from Danae:
When Paul & I got engaged the very first thing we decided was we wanted to write our own vows. The second thing was we wanted the day to feel very “us”. We narrowed it down to two themes: “Grow” or “Glow” for the country & city in both of us. We scouted a few venues for both themes, but the moment we stepped on Blue Door Farm we knew it was the perfect place for us. Focusing on the “grow” theme, I made story boards about each element of the wedding which helped everyone involved understand the vision. Wanting a personal hand in the day, quite a bit of the decorations were made by ourselves or family members – even the chandeliers! Each month we would try to tackle one project leading up to the wedding to minimize stress. We really enjoy interesting food & didn’t want a generic catering experience, so we approached one of our favorite restaurants in a neighboring town. To our glee the chef accepted! Our blueberry mustard favors were from a local blueberry shop touting the local fare.
