“I had been looking forward to Andrew and Patrick’s wedding for so long. I knew it was going to be beautiful but as it turns out, it was above and beyond what I had imagined. I’ve photographed hundreds of weddings but this one made a big impact on me. They are such a charming and attractice couple, the wedding details were gorgeous, the venue was stunning, and their friends and family were absolutely marvelous. It made for a perfect wedding.”

We couldn’t imagine a more beautiful setting and venue for a rustic barn wedding. Everything from the centerpiece flowers to the lighting and decor, made this Nebraska City wedding absolutely stunning. The ceremony took place at the Historic Barn at Arbor Day Farms. It’s natural backdrop made the ceremony’s rustic style even more perfect. Their Steinhart Lodge reception was beautifully designed, right down to the smallest details.
From the Groom:
“My good friend Veronica Valencia, aka designhunterLA, created the bouquets and boutonnieres the night before the wedding and I pinned the bees on. Veronica and I hand-picked these flowers and others from a local wholesaler three days prior. We found various other flowers to supplement. The white hydrangeas and other miscellaneous greenery (the sprigs placed on the menus for example) came from my mom’s backyard. Veronica, her boyfriend Kris, and Vanessa Price, all great friends, created all of the wonderful centerpieces and tied the lavender and yarrow to the chairs in the barn. Contrary to what one would assume about a barn on a hot summer day, the ceremony space smelled beautiful.”
