Down on the Farm by Zack Wussow

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!

100! by Zack Wussow

This, just as a side note, was my 100th wedding as a photographer. That's a lot!

I met Jen and her bridesmaids at The Publick House for hair and makeup, plus a visit to Dylan and the guys across the property as they suited up.


We scurried to get outdoor posed photos done as rain threatened. The grounds were lovely and we got everything done pretty quickly so we could all pile back into the air conditioning.


Luckily, the rain held off not only through photos but through the ceremony as well, which was wonderful.


The reception was a lot of fun with great speeches, good food, and an amazing song one of their friends wrote about them!


Congratulations Jen and Dylan!
