The church where we got married is only one room (no bathrooms), so we needed a separate place to get ready. I booked 1818 Farms for the day, and we used their Garden House and Bridal Room to get ready. 1818 Farms is within walking distance to the church and reception venue, so it was very convenient! See more photos of 1818 Farms here in my post about the venue.
I giggle every time I see this photo! It looks like I'm farting on Stephanie, but she's actually brushing dirt off my pants.
Since booking the Farm, I told Sam that I really wanted to get a picture of us holding a chicken. He was very against this idea! He thinks chicken are gross and dirty and carry diseases. So instead I held a chicken with my bridesmaids. It was so fun!
The chickens didn't really seem that dirty to me!
The correct way to hold a chicken is to hold them very close to your body, with the wings pinned down. In this photo, my left arm is holding down the wings.
This chicken is called a silkie.
Green bridesmaids dresses. I told my bridesmaids they could pick any dress they wanted from any store, as long as it was green. The green lace dress (2nd from left) only cost $16!
I knew I wanted to be comfortable on my wedding, so I definitely wasn't going to wear heels. I bought these green sandals and they worked perfectly for my color scheme, but I didn't spend much time wearing them. It rained the morning of the wedding, so I spent most of my time wearing my rain boots, especially since we spent the majority of our time at a muddy farm.
My aunt tatted my garter for me.
My mom sewed this patch on the inside of my dress with my new monogram.
This is my Grandma's locket (that her grandma gave her) that my Aunt Suzanne let me borrow.
Pictures of my Grandma inside the locket.

The rain boots that I wore most of the day.
I had this large bow with long tails added onto my dress during alterations. The tails of the bow clipped on the bottom of my train, but they kept going rogue throughout the day. I felt like Stephanie was constantly fixing them!
