It makes me so so excited when I run across real wedding features that are at our same venue! I just so happen to run across this one today & it is beautiful! Makes me so happy! And...hopeful that maybe one day we'll get to be a feature on some of these lovely blogs <3 Until then....enjoy all this loveliness Pretty Little Things: Jen + Chip
I swear it has been raining in Indiana for 2 straight weeks. The sun tries to show his 'brighter' side...but it's more like playing peek-a-boo than anything. That gets me thinking....in the back of my mind, sitting on a little stool in a dark corner, is the thought of having a rainy wedding day. Rain + Ceremony outside = one stressed out girl! I'm trying to keep him in that little dark corner, but also know that he can't stay there forever. Two options:  Rent a tent to cover the ceremony site on the front lawn...just in case.  Setup the reception site in the barn so that just in case it rains, we could always do the ceremony in the barn too....obviously neither is ideal, but both are possibilities. $$$ vs convenience? I did run across this wedding online [same venue] that had both ceremony and reception in the barn....so there is hope for that option :)
So when we were searching for a venue, we couldn't find anywhere that would let us do some of the crazy ideas we have. So when I ran across the Breeding Farm, we couldn't pass it up! We are planning on having our ceremony on the front lawn of the historic farm house, which was purchased by the Henry Breeding Family in 1916. Henry Breeding's farming specialty, until he was nearly ninety, was the feeding of beef cattle for market, and his wife, Blanche, raised chickens and sold eggs. Blanche also had a large garden every year, canned extensively, and raised beautiful flowers, especially dahlias and canna lilies. [Information from Bartholomew Country Historical Society].
