today’s love story:
Julie & Peter’s Curtis Farm Wedding
and all the magical moments that made it
I’m so excited to share Julie & Peter’s Curtis Farm wedding!
Curtis Farm is the loveliest farmhouse with beautiful attached barn and rolling fields. Its just as beautiful inside, filled with character – and on this day – flowers, too. Peonies, lilacs & ivy throughout the barn and along the tables.
I was thrilled that Julie invited me to join their wedding day and capture all of the details and moments for her and Peter. She had hoped for a warm sunny day, and while the weather didn’t work out as planned, it was just as wonderful inside the barn as it would have been outside. I heard several guests remark that they had never been in such a unique space.
Julie & Peter have been together for 20 years, and decided it was time to make it official. They invited their closest family & friends to celebrate in an intimate barn wedding in Westminster, just down the road from their home (and ours!).
Days like theirs inspire me to plan a vow renewal for Ben and I…maybe we’ll wait to our 20th anniversary. There’s something so special about celebrating your love with your children. These two each have adult children of their own (7 collectively) and grandchildren as well, and celebrating their relationship and now marriage with their kids and grandkids is a true celebration of family!
So life doesn’t always go as planned, right? You might get 6 grandkids to match, but never all seven (not naming any names! hehe, still a cutie Marissa!). And maybe 5 will smile, 4 will look in the right direction and one will cry. But this picture is family, and I know that’s everything to Julie & Peter. It’s not perfect, but its perfectly theirs.
They are so blessed, and so loved.
The celebration continued throughout the afternoon and into the evening. A wedding day filled with dancing and laughs, food, family & friends. I think it was everything these two hoped it would be. I stole them from the party for a minute on my way out, and these last two pictures tell the entire story. Devotion and love. I hope you’ve enjoyed. I know I did.
