Married and celebrated: The Five Oaks Farm, Saint paul
Date: October 10, 2020
Mary Hooper and Troy Nolan made their forever commitment in an intimate wedding at The Five Oaks Farm in Saint Paul. Sentiment and family have always taken center stage in the couple’s relationship, with Troy proposing to Mary on Thanksgiving at her parents’ house, and Troy’s three children joyfully welcoming Mary into their lives. Given the craziness of getting married in the midst of COVID-19, Mary and Troy looked to their talented vendors to plan, coordinate and style their modern boho-chic elopement. Pampas grass, orchids, wild grasses and other whimsical florals adorned all aspects of the affair, from Mary’s delicate bouquet to Troy’s boutonniere. Luxe local fabrics incorporated into the couple’s hanging installation added a layer of texture. Keeping with the intimacy of the day, the couple read their vows to each other privately on at the back of the Five Oaks property. In the greenhouse under strings of twinkling white lights, Mary and Troy enjoyed an intimate candlelit dinner crafted by Daniel Green of Little Olli, and featuring local ingredients and wines from Jac and James Wine Co. They finished out the magical day with an elevated glamping experience in a cozy A-frame cabin provided by Bivvi. Mary reminisces, “From the entire day of our wedding, my favorite memory was snuggling up in the A-frame cabin, popping bubbly under a sea of confetti and just hanging with my husband! Perfection."
