Historic John P Furber Farm Wedding – Jenn and Joe
Jenn and Joe have known each other since high school. They always knew of each other, but never connected until Joe was deployed to Iraq for the first time. They would chat as much as possible and became closer than ever. After Jenn graduated college, she moved back to Minnesota where the stars aligned and they were finally able to be together! With Joe’s military history and Jenn’s love of cute cowgirl boots, the Historic John P. Furber Farm was the most fitting venue for their June wedding!
It was my first time doing a wedding at the Historic John P Furber Farm and it was spectacular! This venue is beautiful inside and out, and I especially love the grand American flag that hangs from the top floor of the venue.
The day started in separate rooms. Jenn and her lovely ladies dressed upstairs in the bridal suite while Joe and his friends played pinball and games before putting on their jackets. Upstairs with Jenn was Kayleigh, Joe’s daughter who looked helped Jenn put in her earrings and get ready. Kayleigh and Jenn are so close and you can tell how much this day meant not only to Jenn and Joe, but to the three of them becoming a family.
After everyone was dressed, Jenn and Joe went outside for their first look. Kayleigh watched from the distance and ran in to give them a hug toward the end. We stayed outside for as long as possible, but it was hot for June. Luckily this venue is gorgeous for photos and we had a lot of fun playing inside the main barn.
Their ceremony was outdoors, so guests gathered under the big shady leafy trees to stay cool until it was time for them to sit. Jenn’s brother performed their ceremony with grace, and during, Jenn gave a very special necklace to Kayleigh to show how much it meant that she was willing to share her dad, Joe, with her. It was one of those moments where everyone collectively said awwwwwweeeee- it was so precious.
After the ceremony, guest went indoors for cocktail hour and the wedding party and I walked down the road to an old abandoned gas station for a few more pictures. Everyone went back into the barn for reception and a pig roast by This Little Piggy which, as always, was delicious.
The first dance was shared by the bride and groom, but the father daughter dance included Jenn and her dad as well as Joe and Kayleigh. Later Kayleigh took the mic and sang a little tune for the happy couple while they danced with their guests. It was the sweetest way to end the evening.
Jenn and Joe- it was so special to be apart of your Historic John P Furber Farm wedding! You two are so down-to-earth and fun to be around, not to mention your equally as kind families and friends! Thank you so much for having us and letting us fall deeper in love with what we do! I wish your new family the happiest of years in your new home!
