Lyons Farmette Wedding | Elena & Austin

It seems that most weddings typically have some DIY elements incorporated into a few of the details of the day.  Elena and Austin, however, took DIY to a level I’ve never before seen!  For starters, Elena sewed her own wedding dress–both the long dress that she wore throughout the wedding day as well as the short dress that she changed into when dancing began. Elena also made all of the flower girl dresses.  She designed, printed and cut all invitations, ceremony programs, trivia, petal toss bags and favor labels.  But it doesn’t stop there, of course.  Elena and Austin built and restored the tandem bike, built and wired their own marquee letters from scratch.  They made the table runners, engraved wooden hangers and pins.  All of the calligraphy on the chalkboard signs was hand-written by Elena. They made their own sriracha salt for favors.  The succulents on the dinner tables were grown and planted by Elena and Austin…..and the list goes on. :)  It was such a delight to photograph Elena and Austin’s wedding, which was so uniquely stamped with their own personalities.

Lyons Farmette Wedding | Rosie & Russo

Oh, how I love weddings at the Lyons Farmette!  Lyons was the town where I grew up, which I suppose makes me partially biased, but the Farmette is definitely one of my most favorite places to shoot.  And Rosie and Russo did SUCH an amazing job pulling together a fun + beautiful day.  Rosie, in fact, had a hand in almost all of the amazing wedding details, from the programs to the seating chart, the greeting and gift tables to the FIVE gorgeous wedding cakes.

Here are just a few favorites:

Lyons Farmette Wedding | Tess & Tim

I SO VERY MUCH enjoyed Tess and Tim’s wedding ceremony, with lots of unique personal touches…lyons_farmette_ceremony…like the disposable cameras placed on guests’ seats and used mid-ceremony for “selfies.”


…and an amazing ceremony officiated by Tess and Tim’s good friend Robby.  I know it’s not always possible, but I just love when the person officiating knows the bride and groom really well.lyons_farmette_ceremony2

Two of Tess and Tim’s friends performed a song towards the end of the ceremony.  “You and  I,” by Ingrid Michaelson.  Spotify it.  I can’t think of a more perfect ceremony song.  The words were printed inside the wedding programs so that all of the guests could join in for the final round, and it was…perfection. lyons_farmette_ceremony_songlyons_farmette_ceremony_processional

Tess and Tim and their friends were buckets of fun, as is obvious in the bridesmaids/groomsmen group shots:lyons_farmette_bridesmaids_funlyons_farmette_groomsmen_funTheir Kardashian-inspired bridal party shot full of attitude:lyons_farmette_wedding_bridal_party_funlyons_farmette_wedding_bridegroomlyons_farmette_wedding_bridegroom2lyons_farmette_wedding_bridegroom3
