A Timshel Wedding
On April 8th a very special wedding was held here at Timshel Farm. One of our own, the first of three daughters, got married under a small gathering of trees beside our pond. The same spot where she was proposed to last June. The wedding was breathtaking and such a joy to be a part of planning, designing, making. The reception was held in the barn, complete with food, stage and dance floor and a photo booth, whisky bar and cocktail camper.
Lots of handmade elements made it feel truly special. Dad added wood paneling to the inside of the barn covering walls that were once steel. Wildflower honey from our Mother's bees was given out to guests so they could take a piece of our home home with them. Watercolored table numbers adorned each table, nestled in around the garlands. The groom has a passion for woodworking, and the arbor under which the couple made their promises was made by his hands. The invitation suite featured scenes of the farm, drawn by the bride's sister.
We could not have pulled off the day without the help of so many amazing family and friends. People flew in from all over the country...Iowa, Colorado, Los Angeles, New York to name a few. Such a blessing to have everyone come together to celebrate this bond of love. Friend Meagan, owner of Moss Floral Design, did all the florals for the day, her taste and skill transformed the farm into a wonderland. Photographer and friend Elli, of Elli Lauren Photography, flew in from Los Angeles to capture the day in the way only she can.
The day was a happy whirlwind - we ate, hugged and man did we dance. But although it went by way too quickly, it left us with the best memories and hearts so full.
