Johnson’s Locust Hall Farm
Alicia and David wanted a barn wedding and fell in love with the Johnson’s Locust Hall Farm location last year when it first became available for weddings. I visited there with them last July for their engagement session. I learned that they have know eachother for a long time, and rekindled their relationship a few years ago.
Their wedding took place on a beautiful Saturday in late July. The ladies got ready upstairs and the gentleman downstairs in the farm house. Alicia was cool and calm, while David showed just a little bit of wedding day jitters. I was joined by Greg of Greg Hoffman Films. He was there to captures the day on video, while I was taking the still photos of the happy couple.
Alicia suggested that we capture the first look under the big oak tree at the back corner of the farm. The area overlooked the rolling hills of Jobstown and served as the perfect location for their formal photos before the ceremony. Davids jitters were put at ease as soon as he turned and saw his stunning bride.
The rustic reception room was located in the old stables on the farm. The large sliding doors on either side brought in the natural light throughout the night. Guests enjoyed a sit-down dinner by Due Amici Italian Grill and Catering and danced to the music of Art of Kool DJ Events. Alicia’s Maid of Honor made a memorial speech, where she read from her middle school diary about how she had a crush on the groom many many years ago.
We couldn’t pass up the beautiful sunset happening outside. Alicia and David were more than happy to take another stroll to the big oak tree where we started our day. I can honestly say that I haven’t photographed a couple on their wedding day with that kind of light in years. It was well worth the 5-minute break from dancing; golden hour at its finest!
Thank you, Alicia and David, for an absolutely wonderful wedding day. And yes, the pretzel on the ride home totally hit the spot!
