When I spoke with Jaci and Chris about their wedding plans, they didn’t want getting ready photos, and they weren’t too worried about posed photos, but Jaci did have one very specific request: gotta get a photo with her sheep. So I knew it was going to be a fun wedding.
Some backstory: the wedding was held at The Hickories farm in Ridgefield, which is also where Jaci works. So not only a beautiful setting, but a meaningful one.
The day began with their first look and some couple’s photos among the asparagus.
Soon it was time for the ceremony, held on a rise with the beautifully wooded valley stretching out below.
Then guests whiled away the daylight with an extended cocktail hour full of drinks, conversation, and yard games. Plus some pumpkin rearranging.
Around sunset, we moved into a tent for their first dance, followed by a tasty dinner from Bartaco.
Speeches, parent dances, and a cake cutting followed, all with a casual, DIY approach.
The rest of the night was for dancing, and churros!
Just before they left for their after party, I got the happy couple out for one last photo. How could I not, with a backdrop like this barn!
Congratulations Jaci and Chris!
