I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

After reviewing options of where to marry, Dash and Jenna decided the perfect rustic setting was on Jenna’s parent’s farm in small town Glasgow, Kentucky. Generations of Jenna’s family have farmed this land and it’s always been the place where family and friends have gathered.

The ceremony was performed at a landing on edge of Jenna’s father’s cornfield overlooking woods and a small stream. A fall wedding ended up being the perfect time to say “I DO” in a cornfield, under an arbor built by Dash’s father. The wedding aisle was nearly 1/5 mile long and cut through the middle of the corn field–the corn stalks were over head high creating a very intimate and novel entrance to the wedding site. Their reception was held in a working barn, constructed in early 1900’s and originally used for housing Burley tobacco.

Tell us about the dress and where/how you found it!
I didn’t begin dress shopping until I chose my venue. It was very important for me to pick a dress that fit both my setting and my personality. As soon as I chose my venue my mom was on the first flight out and we began the hunt. I found my dress at an adorable boutique in Austin called, Unbridaled. I loved everything in the store and was completely torn! I ended up choosing my Rose & Delilah dress because of its feminine and bohemian style. The dress was so me and I knew it when I put it on.



What made the wedding special and unique?
We chose to get married on my parents family farm in small town Kentucky. Dash and I both had spent so much time on the farm and felt there was no place more special than there to say our “I Do’s.” We walked the farm over and discussed the possibilities where we should marry. We decided on an open pasture at the end of a large corn field on the farm. The reception was held in an old tobacco barn.




What were some touches added to make it personal?
I was really excited about our invitations. My mom and I hand stamped each invitation and my wedding coordinator and her daughter, my bridesmaid, addressed them. I feel that invitations really set the tone for the wedding, so it was really important for me to create something special to send to my guests. The wedding aisle was very unique. My Dad cleared a 300 ft. aisle way through his corn field which led to an open field where the ceremony took place. My father-in-law built the wedding arbor. Tier poles were taken from old tobacco barns on our farm where he worked meticulously to create the perfect arbor in which we stood under to say our vows. Our guests sat on covered hay bales during the ceremony. So many of our friends and family spent hours helping us to create our perfect wedding!



What was the most memorable part of the day?
The overwhelming amount of love we received from everyone was something I will never forget about our wedding!! We first thought we wanted a small destination wedding, but decided the farm where I grew up was the perfect place for it to be held. It was wonderful celebrating the day with all our friends and family on our family farm. It was incredible to see how happy everyone was for us.





Tell us how you met/proposed!
We met in college. We were really young and dated for years with some ups and downs. However we always came back to each other knowing it was meant to be. Dash proposed to me at Christmas on my family farm. After the proposal we shed many happy tears, drank champagne and sat by the fire with our family talking about our wedding all night! We married 9 months later, 3 days before our 9 year dating anniversary.
