Gwen + Jay run Black Trumpet Farm a few miles down the road. We are fortunate to call them friends! It was really cool to attend a wedding on our farm and get a real feel for what it’s like! And also to participate in the celebratory revelry!

Getting ready at the cabin




Excellent foot wear choice for a farm wedding!

Jay and his pops!

 Beautiful Gwen and her beautiful mama


and her besties

On to the wedding ceremony!



Gwens uncle served as ceremony officiant and he was the perfect mix of funny + tender.

Not a dry eye in sight! Their vows made everyone remember the love that feels like home.

  The best send off! Homegrown herbs + flowers.

I loved how the flowers were stuck in their hair for the rest of the evening!

They had the sweetest little jam session under the ceremony tent with members of The Krektones, while guests mingled about and enjoyed amazing snacks and drinks from Cordial and Craft and Cielo Asheville!

  Guests lounged on the cutest vintage pieces from East West Vintage Rentals and Indigo Event Rentals. It really created such a cozy comfortable atmosphere while the rain lightly misted.

It was a perfect time for fun photos!
