Chelsea and Andrew said their "I Do's" at the beautiful Quail Haven Farms on June 3, 2016.
I was so honored to have been apart of such a beautiful day and as Chelsea took her moms hand and headed toward the aisle and to her happily ever after, I couldn't help but tear up. Through the planning process we all had built a relationship and seeing them so happy on their wedding day made me feel filled with joy.
The day went perfectly. The ceremony started on time, guests enjoyed the service because the officiate spoke so beautifully of them and their love. There were tears, laughs, smile and tissues! The bride and groom shared the most moving vows about how they meet, fell in love, struggled, survived and how it was all worth it!
About 20 minutes before the ceremony started, a family friend arrived with the appetizers for cocktail hour and cookies for the milk and cookies bar in the reception. Once we unloaded we realized we were missing about 75% of the appetizers and the milk for the "milk and cookies" bar. As soon he told me he forgot the other appetizers and milk in the fridge over an hour away I turned to my assistant and asked "How do you feel about going for a ride?" I was so lucky to have her that day, I couldn't leave to get more appetizers and milk because the ceremony was going to start in 10 minutes but she rushed to my FJ Cruiser and headed to the closet market. With 2 minutes to spare my super hero of an assistant came back just in time for guests to head to the cocktail hour, appetizers and drinks waiting for them! We added the milk to the "milk and cookies" bar and the bride didn't even know anything went wrong.
From the centerpieces to the dinner, dancing and goodies, the bride and groom couldn't of been happier for the way their day turned out. After so long of planning, Chelsea could finally sit back and relax, enjoy the drinks, music and company of all her closest family and friends.
Quail Haven Farms is a venue like no other. The owner, Lindy, was so helpful, sweet and built the most amazing place for couples to join their lives together. The ceremony is placed in a beautiful garden like area surrounded by flowers, trees, and vines that seem to go on forever. The cocktail hour is hosted down some amazing stone steps on a porch covered section on the property that has the most perfect picture taking opportunities. Then the guests head to the reception site that use to be a barn that they opened up for weddings. The whole venue is surrounded by greenery and flowers and gives you the feeling your in Mother Earths private estate. There are horses everywhere and a big red barn to take pictures in front of or in it. The property is like nothing I have ever seen before and I am feel in love with the feel of the venue. Looking forward to going back there soon.
