Here we are, almost two months later, but the memories are still fresh. A beautiful family celebration for two of my favorite people. There’s too much to capture in clever prose, so please enjoy these photos and short captions in its place…

The gardens were in top form.
With a dreary forecast, we brought the gardens into the tent as well.
Preparing for the big day.
Jo kept close watch on all activities.
The yard was ready for guests.
The flowers waiting patiently for placement.
The main event!
Poms of Baby’s Breath and yellow Mums hung with votives to frame the ceremony space.
I don’t think I’ve ever been so nervous to present a bride with her bouquet…
Seemed fitting to photograph a craftsman’s bout on an antique handsaw.
Each table featured a unique vessel filled with white, yellow, and orange blooms.
Table numbers were stenciled onto aluminum buckets (for rib bones – mouth-watering photo to come).
The tent was strung with lights and each table glowed with votives once darkness fell.
Tom’s famous ribs were a hit, as always! The Father of the Groom took his grilling duty very seriously, building a custom grill pit we’ve since named “Grillzilla” (it’s a beast), and holding test run tastings leading up to the wedding. We’ve never eaten so well! A big thank you to to “pit crew” for their service under very wet skies.
Speaking of delicious treats, the gorgeous cake by Tastefully Wright. We are spoiled with family talent.
No detail too small. A welcome sign for the rehearsal dinner, our signature chandelier, and custom made sap bucket wall sconces.
The army of umbrellas for all the good luck the sky dumped on the couple. It wouldn’t be a family wedding without it!
The happy couple sawing into their cake and dancing to the local Blue Grass band who rocked the barn that night.
So much love for two wonderful people. The amount of family involvement from both sides of the wedding aisle warms the heart.
And they lived happily ever after…
