Nothing says intimate like a farm wedding with a few friends and family around to celebrate. Although the day didn’t quite turn out as originally planned, Garrett and Lee were calm and flexible and ready to be husband and wife.
The days leading up to their wedding weren’t, as some may say, traditional. With the month of March presenting unprecedented challenges from a worldwide coronavirus outbreak and subsequent “stay at home” orders for much of the country, getting those final details taken care of required a bit more effort. Sadly Lee’s parents weren’t able to attend the wedding in person due to her mother’s career as a healthcare worker in Maine (we are SO thankful for all healthcare workers and are praying for their health and safety right now!). But that didn’t stop them from getting dressed up and attending their daughter’s wedding via Facetime.
Garrett and Lee’s wedding took place in a picturesque barn at Canopy Creek Farm, surrounded by lush green grass and horses who insisted on a role in the wedding—bouquet inspectors! The lavender and navy whispered through the décor, contributing to the romantic scene.
Lee’s dress was made of beautiful white satin with intricate lace beading around the waist. It also had pockets!! She had a piece of fabric wrapped around her bouquet—fabric that had been passed down to her through several generations and wrapped around each wedding bouquet! As she got ready, all her bridesmaids were with her in person and virtually to chat with her while she got her hair and makeup done. No separation can stop wedding day girl talk!
The reception included a meal and traditional cake cutting. The cake was placed on a wood barrel that came from Lee’s family potato farm! Heart-felt toasts followed, given by the bride and groom’s best friends. The words they shared made everyone present teary, as they talked about how devoted of a friend Lee is and how fun Garrett is. Oh—and how perfect they are for each other.
After the wedding, we were then able to venture off to Ault Park where the cherry blossoms were in full bloom. The smell of the blossoms as they floated through the air made the experience so peaceful and intimate, as Lee and Garrett shared a kiss beneath the trees.
Lee and Garrett, thank you for trusting me with capturing one of the best days of your lives! It was such a beautiful day and one I won’t forget! I wish you all the best as you start this next chapter of your lives together!
