Haley and Sam create a wedding ceremony that feels like a classic summer picnic.
Country Chic Ceremony at Langdon Farms
Wedding Date: September 19th, 2019
East Coast chic met a simple farm aesthetic as Mandie Fishback and Natalya Kossenko tied the knot at Langdon Farms. Mandie’s sleek white suit paired beautifully with Natalya’s lace A-line dress. As she said her vows in front of a simple sign featuring a verse from the Song of Solomon, lush greenery and orange flowers, Natalya was in her element surrounded by fall colors. Centerpieces featured white pumpkins, emerald greenery and soft candlelight, and guests could take photos against a colorful wooden backdrop reading “The Fishbacks.” The autumnal décor also held hints of Mandie’s heritage. Both the bouquets and boutonnieres featured stalks of wheat as a nod to Mandie’s father’s farming background, and those stalks could also be found in vintage glass bottles throughout the reception space. Mandie’s pocket square was made from a piece of her mother’s wedding dress, and Natalya wore her grandmother’s earrings. Natalya’s Russian heritage also featured prominently, with her godparents initiating the tradition of breaking bread with the couple, and her father giving a vodka toast—complete with chilled vodka shots for the guests. Dancing to Pink’s “Raise Your Glass,” family and friends did just that, raising their glasses to celebrate Mandie and Natalya’s new marriage.
