Samantha and Curtis’ Quad Cities family farm wedding can be described in one word. FUN. These two were such a pleasure to get to know, from their lighthearted snowy engagement session to all of our planning check ins leading up to the wedding. I don’t know how I somehow get the most relaxed couples, but I love it so much. The two of them were just so excited to get married, they didn’t let themselves get bogged down with all of the planning stress. I love how much their celebration on Sam’s dad’s family farm really revolved around family and having fun. I think you will see from the pictures that this group was definitely having a great time!
Some of my favorite highlights of the day were:
Taking a moment in the morning to write a quick note to each other to exchange before the first look. It definitely got the tears flowing and helped build their excitement for the day.
Samantha’s dress was made from her mom’s wedding dress. Such a great idea to modernize a family heirloom and make it usable again!
The ceremony site in the yard was so simple, yet totally reflected Samantha and Curtis’ personalities: down to earth, nature-loving, a little trendy and a little hippie.
The reception in the machine shed was the perfect mix of backyard family get together and elegant wedding decor. It set the scene for this fun loving wedding party perfectly!
