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.

Great Smoky Mountains Fall Color

Posted in Blog, Farm Weddings

This gorgeous photo was snapped by one of our assistants during a quiet moment at this past weekend’s wedding.  The 100-year old red maple was planted by the patriarch of the family, Sampson Flynn, when he started farming on the land given to him by his father.  The bride is sitting on the rope swing and perhaps storing memories of her beautiful wedding to reflect upon in days and years to come.
