The Lyons Farmette is an amazing property with an organic farm and an animal farm of alpacas, a llama and their goat Waylon. One of Christine's must haves for her wedding was a photo with Waylon! The florals were all provided by the Farmette's organic farm and catering was farm-to-table with earth-friendly disposable bamboo plates. The couple wed under the Farmette's signature tree in a multi-cultural ceremony with some Jewish and Christian traditions mixed in including the couple's version of the Seven Blessings with their wedding party giving their own personal blessings to the couple. After the ceremony guests enjoyed an outdoor cocktail hour complete with yard games of bocce, ladder golf and homemade cornhole boards paying tribute to their alma maters. The night was filled with dinner under the stars, dancing and what Jewish wedding would be complete without a Hava Nagila!
"Besides the alpacas and AMAZING florals by Helen, our favorite parts of the wedding were our personal touches on everything - writing the ceremony with one of Alex's best friends as the officiant, designing & painting all the chalkboards, building our cornhole sets, creating all the printed items, and planning the day exactly how we wanted it. The one thing we kept hearing from people after the wedding was about how everything totally represented us as a couple and that is exactly what we hoped for." - Christine Lin
