Lyndsay and David's Georgetown Wedding

Rustic Wedding on Family Farm

From the bride: David and I married at his grandfather’s farm just shortly after he passed. Our day was full of all things “us.” From using straw bales for seating, his tractor for bridal party entrance, and our exit. My dad brought me to the aisle in his classic hot rod convertible. A bonfire with a s’mores bar had my name written all over it and we built our own ceremony arch using railroad ties. My favorite wedding day moment was the first dance. Everything seemed to really slow down at that moment, it was the first time David and I got to be ourselves and chat a little. David’s favorite wedding day moment was exchanging our letters and gifts - I took his grandfather’s handwriting from his RSVP card and put it on a money clip (cue tears!) My advice for future brides is to slow down! So much stress is about being perfect when it shouldn’t be. Will anyone really notice if a reception centerpiece isn’t as perfect as you envisioned? Flowers out of place? I promise they won’t! And skip the fancy cocktail napkins, they won’t be missed! (Until you get back from the honeymoon and find the carton you forgot to set out!) Planning and executing the wedding should be FUN!
