the venue

about 18 hours after mas asked me to marry him we started the wedding conversations. the first of which was all about location. we both thought about it for approximately three seconds and at the same time we said "the farm."

{the ceremony will be held on the flat piece of land directly above this little stream}

you see my parents have this lovely little plot of land out in the middle of nowhere north carolina (40 minutes outside of asheville) that we all refer to as the farm. it is no longer a working farm, but when the property was still new to us there were cow grates and barns all over the place.

{dinner to take place on the flat spot below these trees}

sorry these pictures were taken during the end of winter, hence the naked trees. hopefully they will be a bit fuller and loads more colorful at the end of october.


  1. wow! what a lovely property...

  2. Oh my, what a gorgeous setting. I took a backpacking trip in the mountains in West Virginia a couple of summers ago and it looked just like that; big gray rocks, moss and ferns everywhere and sunlight that was dappled through the trees. It was very otherworldly and seemed to have been frozen in time while the rest of the world around it kept moving.

    That said, I can't wait to see the pictures. :)

  3. what a fabulous place! it should be lovely at the endof october with all the leaves changing. i'm also getting married next october in a woodsy setting - it's the best
