Jesi's wedding at Adaumont Farm

We were looking forward to Sunday all day last week because it meant that we were able to visit Adaumont Farm in Trinity once again.  This venue has become a premier spot for weddings in the Triad, and you will soon see why. 

As we drove on to the property to set up for Jesi & Mike's wedding, there were endless stretches of fenced off farm land that housed horses, fields of corn and lots of tranquility!  Adaumont Farm allows brides to come and relax...ceremonies by the lake and the reception in a beautiful barn.   Kyle and Pattie Petty own this spot and it is truly a Southern secret!

As you approach the entrance to the barn area, you can see that the main goal here is comfort......rocking chairs, lounges and fans set the tone.

Keeping true to the country flair, a cowboy boot planter welcomes everyone right at the entrance.

Laid back and fun, Jesi and Mike had plenty of Coke to go around~

The inside of the barn guides guests to a spacious room with some cozy living quarters worked right in.....and the TVs all had Sunday's race on; who would have thought?!

The huge chandeliers hang in several places from the ceilings that are draped with fabric.

Jesi & Mike chose shades of citrus for their fun and fresh.  Mason jars were the main accent on the tables along with our creations!

As you walk through the front hallway of the barn into the reception space, there are horse stalls that greet you.  The stalls are absolutely amazing and have since left housing the Petty's animals, to become staged rooms for seating.

Amidst all of the guest tables, there are little nooks for people to get away and relax....the main table here is topped with sunflowers and animal skin chairs!

Now that we got our "tour" out of the way, it is time to get to work.  Amanda, Robin and Emily start putting cupcakes on wooden dowels so that we can assemble the cupcakes like flowers in terra cotta pots.

The starting point...

Just like working in the garden!

We did an assortment of various shades of flowers to create a tasty centerpiece for the guest tables.

Amanda is working her magic...

As time went on, we were really just designing a garden patch in the barn for them.  So fun!

We had a guest join us for the setup.  Brennan loved the flowers on all of the cupcakes and was keeping us on task, making sure that only the cupcakes with flowers made it into the pots!

She made sure that she picked her favorite one out to eat...."the pink one with the flower"!

The finished pot....a mix of Summer tones!  They looked and smelled divine~

One pot went right in the middle of each table.  The guests were able to pick their own flower and indulge!
