A DIY Farm Wedding: Kylene + Justin

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! We have a lovely farm wedding to start the week off, sent over from Benj Haisch Photography. A bit into the day from the lovely bride “Our inspiration came from our love of the outdoors and our venue. Swans Trail Farms (the venue) is a relative of mine so I always thought about getting married there. When Justin and I got engaged we knew it was perfect for us and especially fitting because he grew up on a small farm. We loved the rustic, natural and beautiful feel of the entire place so we just ran with it! I love purple and Justin loves anything wood so we incorporated that. We wanted it to be a laid back night, full of fun. We had dancing, s’mores, an angel food cake bar…all our favorite things that made the night so perfect!” Congrats to Kylene + Justin!

Your Music! I walked down to “All I want is You” by the Vitamin String Quartet. The bridal party walked down to “I’m Your’s” by the Vitamin String Quartet and originally by Jason Mraz, a song we both love. Love the violins! We walked out to Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros “Home.”

Most memorable moment of your wedding day? My most memorable moment was saying our vows and exchanging the rings with my husband. It was so exciting to look into his eyes and make promises for a lifetime. It finally all became so real at that moment and I couldn’t have been happier!

Any advice for those planning now? I had so much fun designing and making things with all our DIY. It made the experience so memorable and affordable! From the banners, to the name cards, to the cake topper…you can do it! If you need help check out the book Handmade Weddings.

Also, ask for help from family and friends. It totally takes some stress off all the things you have to do and gets things done faster. I had friends help assemble things, my dad cut the logs, and family baked angel food cakes. I couldn’t have done it without the support of my family and friends! So many people helped with different things. My cousin Danielle Ringman and dear friend Stacia Haisch acted as my day of coordinators and truly made the day come together. They were amazing!
