So happy to finally share this lovely DIY wedding. Martina and Nick, who met over a decade ago in high school, put so much thought and effort into the gorgeous details of their day. all the design elements were handmade, like the lawn games, wood rounds, and bar/keg the groom constructed. They wanted their wedding to have a very distinct character, and incorporating their personal style and aesthetic as a couple was a must!
"We love being outdoors and wanted all of our guests to feel laid back and enjoy what the day was truly about, joy and love in the presence of each other’s company."
The ceremony was held at the historic immaculate conception church of tome, where martina's parents, as well as both sets of her grandparents, were married! following the ceremony, we photographed martina and nick on the family farm and fields in which Nick grew up working on.
When I asked Martina what her favorite wedding memory was, she shared:
"One of my absolute favorite memories from our wedding was our impromptu stop at our local burger joint, Circle T. It was completely random and so much fun to just sit with our wedding party and enjoy the comforts of a chocolate shake, fries and a burger! I will definitely be thanking Katrina (my bridesmaid), for a very long time for calling in that order!"
Congrats to the happy couple! we were honored to be a part of your beautiful day.
