Where do I even begin with Lucas and Kim’s wedding? I LOVE the fun bridesmaids and groomsen photos. The black and white checkered floor in the tent is brilliant. Kim’s intricate hair, lacy dress, and elegant bouquet may actually speak directly to my heart. The recycled window table seating chart and personalized jam favors are such nice DIY touches. And that wedding cake? It looks as delicious as it is beautiful!

The details from Kim:
“We are both from farming families. I grew up on a dairy farm in South Jersey and Lucas grew up on a vegetable farm in Western New York. We are best friends and crazy about each other. We chose to get married in Western New York in a little town called Elba. Lucas grew up in Elba, New York. We got married in his parents yard. It is a beautiful farmhouse surrounded by a beautiful garden. We figured our children could always go back to it one day if they would like to get married there.
“We loved the idea of having a farm wedding because we both grew up on farms and its part of whom we are. We used old crates to make a cake stand. We had an old milk jar case to hold cards at the wedding. We used old barn windows as seating charts. We painted one side black and the other side we used white paint markers to write out the names and table numbers. On each table we used jam jars as the favors on the tables. The wine at the wedding was from my cousin’s vineyard called Meranda-Nixon Winery in Ohio. We had a time capsule with notes in it to read 10 years down the road. Lucas had a red tractor for us. We both love IH red tractors. Lucas collects red toy tractors and I love vintage furniture and other antiques.
“The flowers had garden roses, some wild flowers, hens and chicks, and we used mason jars on each table. Each table had mercury glass candleholders on them with chalkboards used for the table numbers. We had a soft serve ice cream machine. There was a photo booth with props. Our wedding photographer helped us set it up. We used old lawn furniture and barn doors as our backdrop. Everyone went crazy with it. In addition, we had lawn games such as can jam that we made ourselves. It was a perfect day even with being quite warm.”
