We're Lauren and Jem
We moved from the big city to live our our dream of farming the land . We grow organic food and fresh cut flowers on our historic Indiana homestead, which also will also serve as a beautiful & unique venue for weddings & events, starting in 2021. Our mission is to live intentionally while honoring the land and serving the local community.
MORE ABOUT US
When Megan told me she wanted to have her wedding out at the farm, I felt so honored. Megan has been a friend since early childhood, and is such a cheerful and bright light of energy. She has faced so many challenges with an amazing attitude, and has an unforgettable laugh. And once meeting Steve to show them both the space, I saw that she had met her match. He is calm and grounded, and exactly the partner for Megan.
Megan is also a super talented artist & crafter who made so many unique, custom décor pieces for her wedding day. It was awesome to see how she made the barn space her own with all of her awesome signs and more.
Megan knew she wanted sunflowers, lots of sunflowers, with touches of white & navy. I planted a whole row of sunflowers in the garden timed perfectly to bloom for their wedding! I grew so many different colors, all in the Pro-Cut sunflower series from Johnny’s Seeds– light yellow, plum, orange, white, and bi-color. I was so nervous that they wouldn’t bloom in time, but it worked out just right!
Steve & Megan’s flower girl was Megan’s daughter Alena, and I got to make her a very special flower crown with yellows and whites, with navy ribbon. Paired with her dress, she looked so adorable and them coming together as a family put tears in my eyes!
The arbor pieces were all sunflowers with white zinnias, white cosmos, and greenery with sedums and a touch of mahogany hibiscus. It became the perfect backdrop for pictures & selfies after the ceremony!
After the ceremony, it was time to party! Pulled pork & other BBQ was enjoyed from Obi’s Barbecue in Marion , followed by pickle back shots for the wedding party, and the dancing was LIT. Snappy Giraffe Photography was around to capture all the special moments for the bride and groom and did a fantastic job! Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Young!
