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!
