Lisa and Travis were married at Ash Mill Farm about a month ago, and I must say, it is one of my favorite places to photograph a wedding in! The house and the grounds are so quaint and beautiful, perfect for an outdoor casual wedding, equipped with a dog, sheep and Billiejean, the goat! My friend and fellow photographer, Jess Roberts, second shot for me. Lisa is an incredible artist and vintage shop owner. Her style really shown through in the wedding. The theme of this wedding was definitely “handmade” and “vintage.”
Lisa wore an amazing vintage 1930s embroidered organdy gown with matching jacket that she found on ebay. The lace bow in her hair was another ebay find. Flowers were assembled by Wall Flowers, and the reception was catered by Linda Jacobs of Soup To Nuts LLC. Nishat Akhtar, friend of the bride, designed all of the paper goods — invitation, rsvp, program, placecards, table numbers, thank you cards. the whole shebang!
Lisa is a d.i.y. fanatic. She made all of the accessories for the wedding party — her necklace, her mom & mother-in-law’s brooches, and both sister-in-laws’ necklaces. Her mother-in-law & sister-in-law quilted the photobooth backdrop. The tablecloths, napkins, milk glass vases, & crates were all collected from yard sales, ebay, and etsy, as well as from Unique’s in Cincinnati, Ohio. Pat, the owner, kept a watchful eye out for linens and sweetly collected (and painstakingly laundered & pressed) them for her.
A little quote from the bride herself, “the whole day really was so special to us. my prevailing memory of the day is just being so overjoyed that we got to have all of our favorite people in the whole world in one place all at the same time. eating, drinking, talking & dancing with them… it was all just surreal & better than i ever could have imagined.“
