A sweet barn wedding with a string band

Maggie and Theresia were married in an octagonal barn in in West Liberty, Iowa. They love DIY, so they made almost all of the decor themselves including all of the tablecloths, bunting, and book centerpieces. Friends made their cake and each of their grandmas made cookies. One of their favorite wedding moments was when their friends, who had formed a band and practiced for weeks for this event, performed "Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. In addition, they hired a string band which led to much square dancing and frolicking (which the kids especially loved).

Hannah White photographed the day and said, "Their family and friends surrounded them with the most support and encouragement I've ever seen at a wedding." She also noted that the food was spectacular, including tons of appetizers, Indian cuisine, and an epic dessert bar. Let's take a look…

  3. I rarely comment on mostly picture wedding post, but my goodness, this is gorgeous.

    I don't know if I should be super jealous or super happy. I settled on a combination of both.
