In the quiet moments, when the plans and details fade away, we see a glimpse of a stunning future ahead of us.
It’s in these moments when we are reminded of why we started this grand project. In so many ways, it’s almost like planning a wedding of our own.
After all, there are a thousand details to consider, decisions to be made and to-do lists to complete.
But, like you, even when our plans seem to pull us in a million different directions, we want to keep our eyes focused forward and our hearts steadfast on the meaning and purpose behind it all.
Recently, we received a note from a bride. She said,
“I am at a time in my life where I am going to be getting married, and I want the quiet vows under the rustling trees and the meaning of why we are there to stand out a million times more than all the every lil detail of this big extravagant wedding hustle and bustle.”
Yes, sweet friend, we want that for you too.
How we are supporting the purpose-filled wedding
We want this for all of you, but talking about it just isn’t enough. We know that if we’re going to help you focus on the things that really matter: your spouse, your marriage, your family and relationships – then we have to do something real to help you.
Let me tell you a story.
Recently all of the hearts and minds behind Rasberry Greene were sitting together discussing plans and projects, to-do lists and decisions to be made and we kept coming back to this: What would Mama do?
We’ve told you stories about the family behind the little farm, and the Mamas who shaped so much of what we cherish today. But, what we haven’t told you, is that these are more than stories to us – they are a compass leading us to a bigger purpose.
Every time there is a decision to be made, a future policy to be decided we ask ourselves: What would Mama do?
You see, we want your wedding at Rasberry Greene to feel just like getting married at your Mama’s house.
Would Mama let you come in early to set up so you don’t feel rushed? Of course she would!
Would Mama let you have the run of the farm so you can capture gorgeous engagement photos months before your wedding? Absolutely!
Would Mama want to take away as much of the hustle and bustle from your day as possible, so you can focus on the promises you’re going to make rather than time limits and unnecessary policies? Yes, and we do too.
For us, Rasberry Greene has to be more than just another wedding venue, because your wedding is more than “just another wedding”, it is an incredible moment that will hold meaning for you, your spouse and your family for the rest of your lives.
How you can share your story and be a champion for intentional weddings
Are you already married or know someone who believes as we do? We want to hear your story!
One of the best ways you can help other couples focus on what really matters, is by sharing your stories of how you did it yourself.
Was there a moment in your planning process where you decided that you wanted more from your wedding? Did you forgo some traditions or details so that you could re-focus on the important moments and the promises you made?
Are you planning a wedding right now? We want to hear your story as well!
In the meantime, we encourage you to focus on the decisions that really matter – on the memories made and future stories to tell that will last beyond the details.
After all, its in the quiet, intentional moments where we see our future ahead of us, and what a beautiful one it is!
