Cross Street Flower Farm Wedding Inspiration in Norwell, Massachusetts


Getting married on a flower farm means you’ll be surrounded by rows of luscious, romantic flowers. Cross Street Flower Farm is a 7-acre flower farm only 30 minutes from Boston, growing specialty and sustainable flowers from April through November. Owner Nikki Bartley says, “Our flower fields are a love letter to our community. We hope our flowers make you smile as you drive by our fields on Main Street. We are not just in the business of growing flowers, we are growing a community of flower lovers around the South Shore.”

This Tuscan inspired day at Cross Street Flower Farm was designed by Kayla Gould of Buds, bringing in a variety of romantic blooms to create this beautiful editorial. My favorite addition to the florals were the pitcher plants! Hayley Tyson created a romantic invitation suite featuring watercolor scenes of Italy, cerulean calligraphy and vellum envelopes. For the table, she made individually framed acrylic pressed flower escort cards!

This beautiful day reminded me of the poetry of Giacomo Leopardi, who is considered one of the greatest Italian poets of the nineteen century. This chic and summery wedding inspiration specifically reminded me of his poem, “L’Infinito.”

“Always to me beloved was this lonely hillside

And the hedgerow creeping over and always hiding

The distances, the horizon’s furthest reaches.

But as I sit and gaze, there is an endless

Space still beyond, there is a more than mortal

Silence spread out to the last depth of peace,

Which in my thought I shape until my heart

Scarcely can hide a fear. And as the wind

Comes through the copses sighing to my ears,

The infinite silence and the passing voice

I must compare: remembering the seasons,

Quiet in dead eternity, and the present,

Living and sounding still. And into this

Immensity my thought sinks ever drowning,

And it is sweet to shipwreck in such a sea. “

“Sempre caro mi fu quest’ermo colle,

E questa siepe, che da tanta parte

Dell’ultimo orizzonte il guardo esclude.

Ma sedendo e rimirando, interminati

Spazi di là da quella, e sovrumani

Silenzi, e profondissima quieteIo nel pensier mi fingo, ove per poco

Il cor non si spaura. E come il vento

Odo stormir tra queste piante, io quello

Infinito silenzio a questa voce

Vo comparando: e mi sovvien l’eterno,

E le morte stagioni, e la presente

E viva, e il suon di lei. Così tra questa

Immensità s’annega il pensier mio:

E il naufragar m’è dolce in questo mare.”
