I've been lying for almost a year. I have not actually been a Farmer's Veggie Wife. I have been a Farmer's Veggie Fiance. But, I just didn't like the sound of that PLUS my favorite canning book isn't called The Farmer's Fiance: How preserve food and live with a farmer without being on a straight track to hell.
No need to worry anymore folks. I am married and the papers are signed. My children are even happy that their mother and father are married. It leaves less explaining to the neighbor cats about how their parents have different last names but are yes, in fact, living together.
Our wedding was at our house and on our farm. It was exactly how I wanted it to look. The dancing went until the wee hours of the morning which is exactly how I wanted to celebrate my wedding to T with family and friends. It was amazing!
Our caterers used some produce from our garden to create a vegetarian menu that impressed the guests. Our cake was a vegan chocolate cake from Katie's Cupcakes and our cupcakes, which were not vegan, disappeared in 5 min. Seriously, I ordered a lot and I have never seen dessert gone that fast from any wedding! There was not one left. (although, I do wish I got to eat more of my cake, I guess I will order another from Katie's for our one year anniversary).
The professional pictures aren't out yet and won't be for awhile but our photographer stayed for at least 10 hours and got some awesome pictures, I am so excited to share those later.
Our first dance was to a salsa song that we had choreographed by a real life salsa dancer and we sang Jackson, a duet by Johnny Cash and June Carter, during the reception. For our ring blessing, the rings were plucked from a tree where they hung for 3 days and 3 nights so we were connected to nature as well as each other, of course. Everything screamed E and T and I am so thankful for that.
We had so many friends and family help set up and take down during the hot ass days that surrounded the wedding. I could not have had my prefect wedding without all of them! I am not complaining about the weather though, it was a great night and I am so glad we decided to have a late ceremony.
I will leave you with some pictures that various people took and eventually I will put up the professionals but for now I give you August 14, 2010, the day I became a real Farmer's Veggie Wife:
