Mixing opposites can sometimes make your day fabulous. It's exactly why Cuckie and Alberto's vintage glam farm wedding was amazing. Drawing inspiration from the popular film The Great Gatsby and blending it with the sweet charm of their venue Full Moon Farm Medusa.

Cuckie and Alberto won this wedding in a contest. The local and national vendors involved wanted to get together for a give-back where we could guarantee a deserving couple, who does socially responsible work in their community a dream wedding. Alberto and Cuckie were the clear winners. Cuckie wowed us with her volunteer work for the March of Dimes and Alberto's pro bono work with teens in his recording studio set them apart from other applicants.


The winning couple went with a Farm-Gatsby theme. Cuckie chose the short, ostrich feathered skirt Makayla dress from the Cotton Bride. Each and every guest dressed the part to the nines, and it gave the wedding a truly unique an unexpected feel. Glam on a farm, who knew?


The feeling of community that surrounded the couple struck all the volunteer vendors as nothing short of remarkable. Guests from as far as Italy (from where the groom hails) sipped Prosecco and danced the night away in an early American barn from the 1790’s - and it was perfect.

To quote the bride: "I am still on cloud 9 and cannot even gather my thoughts about the event... I just don't want to admit that it's really over."
