Dreaming about 2018 weddings…. Woodsy Farm Trends in Wedding Planning for 2018

Dreaming about 2018 weddings…. Woodsy Farm Trends in Wedding Planning for 2018

Posted in Blog, Christian Ceremony Ideas, Farm Weddings

As we study the trends for wedding planning for 2018 and beyond we can’t be more excited that brides are choosing magical locations like Sampson’s Hollow more and more.  Couples are choosing a back to nature experience whether it is justs the two of them on a romantic elopement, or they have gathered friends and family for a special celebration. Vintage trends are strong and are driving dress and color choices for the bridal party and the following reception!  Brides are loving the looks of the 70’s, (we adimt we do also!) and choosing ivory, cream, chamgagne and off white more often than white for their special dress.  Have you been dress shopping yet?  When the time comes we will want to hear all about it! Reception trends tend to work to knit guests in to the vow exchange with an emphasis on the importance of the guest.  Favorite scriptures are shared, recipes are requested as gifts, colors for receptions combine rustics with coppers and silver. Our favorite of the trends is to choose somewhere “Woodsy.” Woodsy is the new Black!  What could be more exciting for Sampson’s Hollow?  We provide a century old farm that is full of stories, trees who have witnessed a special kind of love over and over, and settings ready to take you and your spouse to a fairy tale world where you create your very own Once Upon a Time.  Visit our Photo Gallery or Book a Venue Tour to experience Sampson’s Hollow for yourself. Whether you are considering an elopement for just the two of you, or a wedding celebration with your family and friends, Sampson’s Hollow’s coordinators are second to none.  We look forward to hearing all about your upcoming wedding date and your dream come true…Once Upon a Time.

Unique Ideas for a Christian Ceremony at our Farm, Sampson’s Hollow

Unique Ideas for a Christian Ceremony at our Farm, Sampson’s Hollow

Posted in Christian Ceremony Ideas

Sampson’s Hollow holds the principles taught by Jesus dear and we serve our couples and their families as the we best can follow our Lord’s teachings. Why not try a few clever ideas at your wedding to bring Christ to the center of the occasion and help to create memories and God’s Living Word as part of your every celebration.     One idea we love is to have a special Bible at the Welcome Table. Ask guests to highlight a favorite verse for the Mr. and Mrs as they begin their journey! Another idea we often see that is precious is to use a Bible in place of a pillow to tie the wedding rings on. This can also be a special family Bible or one special to the couple. Lastly why not show your love with a foot washing before the ceremony. Our Lord showed us this act as a way of showing love and service above all in love. Before your ceremony or after, with those most special, we can plan a foot washing place for a special bonding moment with Christ in the center of your love. We welcome your ideas also as you come to Sampson’s Hollow and plan your wedding. We want your dream Once Upon a Time to be meaningful and Christ centered as you come together at this special time.
