Alyssa + Justin

Outdoor Ceremony and a Party in the Middle of the Forrest with a DJ Booth in a Tree

Today’s wedding is so cool. Alyssa and Justin got married on a field on Justin’s parents’ property, and then everybody headed to the forrest clearing nearby for the reception. I love how convivial this place looks—believe me, you want a campfire for your wedding—and reflects the couple’s personality and history; so simple yet so very special.

Alyssa and Justin’s wedding took place in Louisburg, Kansas USA, this last October. You may see a sheep on the pictures, don’t worry, it was Justin’s present to Alyssa:
When Justin proposed he gave me a baby lamb named Franc. I got to bottle feed him, road trip with him, live in a dorm with him, shop with him…needless to say he was definitely a guest of honor at our wedding.
I just love that there are so many personal touches in this wedding: Alyssa made the chandelier for above the dance floor out of chicken wire and twine, and Justin and his dad made a DJ booth in a tree!

Name one thing you regret…

We had been excited about the food for so long, but didn’t end up getting to even one food station…too busy hugging and dancing.

And one thing you’re really happy about/ proud of.

Our families empowering us to have a wedding in the middle of a forrest despite the extra leg work. We felt so blessed by their efforts and encouragement!
