A wedding at the Farm!
On September 17, 2016 Alex Mackey married Justin Babcock, after seven years as sweethearts. Her parents are dear friends, and we've known Alex for years. It worked out that they got engaged just after we bought the farm and began working on it. Alex asked if they could be married here, we were thrilled to say yes, and with the offer of some help working on the barn, they settled on the date.
It was so exciting!
We spent maaaany weekends all summer long sprucing up the barn, with Justin and Alex's help. Do not ask what kind of mess is involved in powerwashing out old stalls. Lots of dirt and cobwebs later, it looked much better. We rebuilt the stairs so they could make their grand entrance in the upstairs window, and made sure it was clean enough to set up food tables.
The day came with lots of sunshine, the tent went up, the food came in, and the bride and groom were married by her father under an arbor framing a beautiful view. So sweet!
My photos don't do it justice, but Erin Lane, their photographer, was fantastic; she gave me permission to link to their post on her blog. So here it is:
