Alicia and John live in Alaska, but wanted to get married on a farm in Hillsboro, IN that has been in John's family for over 100 years. The property had a lot of sentimental value for John and his family members and I loved hearing all of the stories about his grandfather and the time the kids in the family spent at the farm.
Pictured: Sea water toast: John's grandfather swore by the health benefits of sea water. One of the aunts brought some back from California and processed it for the wedding.
Pictured: John's father walked Alicia down the aisle and danced his 80 something year old self the whole way down.:) John's cousin officiated
Alicia and I started by discussing her vision and style. I love styling woodsy, rustic weddings, so naturally I was pretty excited when she told me she wanted a rustic and a little bit eclectic/bohemian dinner party in the woods. We really clicked on the vision and she told me to run with it.
I sourced most of the alcohol from People's Brewery, Wildcat Creek Winery, and Oliver Winery.Champagne was a must have request from the bride so I rented this vintage tea cart from Violet Vintage and set up a little bubbly bar.
Alicia wanted to incorporate some Alaskan style in the design and this Birch Tree cake by Something Blue Bakery was the perfect way to do that
D and R Market catered an upscale BBQ with pulled pork and ribs. It was fantastic!
nice lighting was also a must have, so I rented these string lights and chandelier from Rustic Chic Vintage
Danny Weiss and his Jazz band absolutely made the night.These are some seriously talented guys. Also, this was one of the sweetest first dances I've ever seen. I definitely got a little choked up.
Pictured: John and his uncle on the porch towards the end of the night. I don't think anyone knows how long those Christmas lights have been there :) Those little, quirky things about the property made the night even better.
This sweet, eclectic family was so much fun. I am so glad I got the pleasure of being a part of Alicia and John's big day.
