Annie + Andrew: A Homespun Farm Wedding

Picinc Wedding Sketches from Ashley Brooke Designs

When I saw the pretty picnic wedding of Ashley from Ashley Brooke Designs on Elizabeth Anne Designs a couple of months ago, I instantly loved all of the sweet details Ashley designed.

This morning’s Inspired Creations Contest entry is the first of two from Ashley Pepitone, a budding event designer. Inspired by summer days spent on her grandparents’ farm in Massachusetts, Ashley was inspired to create a design that would be reminiscent of frolicking about the fields and raiding the strawberry patch for fresh, sun-ripened berries.
