Acara & Jack: Summer Wedding at Meadowbrooke Farms Bed & Breakfast

acara+jack-1939.jpg

This was definitely a beautiful Summer Soiree out on the Farm. Their wedding colors consisted of mint (yall know my mint loving heart was excited to see it EVERYWHERE that day!) which added the perfect pop of color around the rustic barn. They exchanged vows at the back of the property under a huge tree while guests viewed and waved their customized program fans.

Twinkle lights shined down on a wall collage of white antique frames with photos of these two love birds. Acara's aunt L.A. Phipps helped execute and create Acara's vision and it was perfect.  Opposite of the wall collage they added more rustic touches with soft white tulle walls and large branches that looked like they came from the tree they exchanged vows under. Jack's wedding gift to Acara was a necklace with a similar looking tree engraved with their wedding date & first dance song  (so darn thoughtful!). 

Fun tidbit! Since the newlyweds last name is Miller, they had one of the best hashtags "#itsmillertime for their party guests.

It all started as a blind date. "Our families have been friends since we were little, but we never met until they set us up at our family beach week. I did not want to talk to him and was very against being set up!" Acara explained about her first meeting with Jack. Once they met they went on 3 dates that week. Their relationship kept going strong once they got home from vacation. They started dating when Jack was 17 and Acara was 16. Just babies!

Their first date was with Jack's older brother and his girlfriend. The double date consisted of go-cart racing and mini golfing. At the end of the golf round, Acara realized she  lost her phone in the golf cart. They had to head back and search ALL of the golf carts to find it. Every time Acara misplaces something Jack always jokes that "I should have known then that you would loose things alot.

The proposal. Fast forward somer years later. It happened during family beach week (where it all began). Acara knew it was in the near future since they went ring shopping together. The day of, Jack looked like he was going to vomit, would not eat dinner and had to take a nap (not the norm Jack behaviors).  She had a strange suspicion that this day would be it since her family said they were taking family photos on the beach but her grandma did not give out a dress code... then she started picking up on more suspicious behavior because everyone was acting a bit off. She  asked her cousin if she should wear a certain dress,  with a wink. Jack threw on his nicest polo that he packed and sent her cousin down the beach with a letter and a poem written in it asking Acara to be his bride. And that was the start of Mr & Mrs Miller!
