Marcie and Ben | Lingrow Farm Wedding

Driving through the rolling hills of grass to Lingrow Farm, I had a feeling that Marcie and Ben’s day was going to be something extra special.  Not only because it was their wedding day, but also because I know what a fun couple they are, how absolutely smitten they are with each other, and what a lovely venue they chose to get married at.  Lingrow Farm boasts a renovated barn and farmhouse, friendly animals (oh, those horses!), a gazebo, pond, and a multitude of colorful flowers.

I walk into the farmhouse where Marcie is getting ready, and I hear her say “Hi, Leigh! Come in and grab a mimosa!” Immediately, she treats me like family because, well, that’s just who Marcie is.  A generous person with a big heart.  And as much as I like mimosas, I knew I had quite a few hours of photography ahead of me, so the mimosa had to wait for another day.

What I love most about Marcie and Ben’s wedding day was watching how much fun they had together.  It was the little gestures and moments that made this wedding unique- the joyful laughter they had when they exchanged rings, the thumbs up they gave the camera after they said their vows, and the laughter that ensued when they had a few moments alone (but still caught on camera!)  I love how they made each and every guest feel welcome and special throughout their wedding day.  Like I said, BIG hearts.

Take a look to see what I mean…

No, these weren’t Marcie’s wedding shoes, just her garter on some really cool historic shoes used as décor in one of the getting ready rooms!

Right as I was taking the picture below, I backed into a vehicle, flew feet up, and landed elbow first on the gravel!  A super bloody elbow was worth the shot, though.
