Black Star Farms Wedding | Jenny + Brett


Pandemics have a way of changing plans, and for Jenny + Brett’s wedding, that was certainly the case. “Black Star Farms was not our original wedding venue; it kind of fell into place. My family was staying there as it is a bed and breakfast. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our wedding guest count shrunk repeatedly, resulting in a much more intimate style wedding. (Which we loved!!!) Black Star has a room that was more appropriate In size for a smaller guest count. It was actually very special to lodge a few days before and after we exchanged our vows there. It allowed for us to really soak it in.”

“The morning of our wedding, I couldn’t believe how calm I felt. I thought I was going to feel nervous. But, not at all. I was thinking so much about the time to come. Thinking about our kids wondering what the day was like, the same way that I’ve wondered what the wedding day was like for my parents.”

From final preparations to photos on the lawn, Jenny + Brett’s wedding day was coming together perfectly. They soon found themselves surrounded by their guests and exchanging vows. “The happiest moment was walking down the aisle…. the other direction, with Brett! We had even just 30 seconds together in the entrance of Black Star Farms, just the two of us.”

Jenny + Brett, your wedding was beautiful. Congratulations!
