It’s Magazine Monday, friends! Here’s a closer look at Bailey and AJ’s fabulous farm wedding — featured on our 2017 glossy pages!
Bailey Thompson + AJ Gubernick // May 12, 2016
Life is beautiful for Bailey Thompson and AJ Gubernick. Bailey, who is originally from Richfield, was set up on a blind date with AJ, who grew up in California. He arranged for the pair to bake lemon cookies, which was perfect because Bailey loves all things lemon and lime. “The date was so simple and fun,” Bailey says. “From that night on we continued to date until we were married a year later.”
Bailey had visited Italy just before she met AJ, and she used it as inspiration for her wedding. “I knew exactly the mood, theme and cuisine I wanted to recreate,” she says.
First things first, an Italian-inspired wedding needs incredible food, which is why Bailey chose Fiore food truck for the pizza and Culinary Crafts for the gelato. They stayed true to their lemon roots with lemon gelato and lemon cake.
The trendsetting couple was the first to hold their reception at Quiet Meadow Farm Orchard in picturesque Mapleton. Bailey’s favorite moment of the day was her first dance as Mrs. Gubernick. “In that moment, I was so overcome with love for AJ and for everyone who was there and made our day so special,” she says.
GET THE PICTURE Bailey and AJ’s wedding was filled with simple, yet breathtakingly beautiful touches. Although finding the venue was tough (“a lot of tears went into that decision,” Bailey says), everything paid off when they found the orchard at Quiet Meadow Farms. From wooden place cards to hanging bistro lights, every detail exuded elegance. Bailey loved the idea of a two-piece gown, and her beautiful dress was custom made by Leanne Marshall and incorporated French Alencon lace.
