That's My Jam! (and a Beautiful Barn Wedding)

Our good friends Jon & Katie got married this weekend at a beautiful venue in upstate New York.  The Historic Barns of Nipmoose paired with the sweet & thought details Katie & Jon planned made for a wedding that truly looked right out of the pages of a magazine or Style Me Pretty.  It was pretty much "rustic elegance" perfected and I regret not taking better photos.  I tried, but I was somewhat flustered by a combination of leaving baby Will overnight for the first time and two & a half glasses of white wine.  I'm hoping Katie will let me share some of her photographer's pictures once they get them.  For now, here's what I took:

The wedding itself took place on the grass (Jesse performed the ceremony!), then we headed into that middle barn for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.  If you look closely, you can see the strings of round Christmas lights draped across the barn rafters.

The back of the barns looked out onto beautiful wildflowers (which, of course, matched the beautiful wedding bouquets, boutonnières, and table centerpieces).  It was so perfect.

And, per the title of this post, there was jam.

It turns out that jam wedding favors are, in fact, my jam.  The ultimate in useful favors for a toast lover like me!

The bride's mom (Maggie) MADE ALL OF THESE JAM FAVORS for the guests and they were used as place cards (you can see my name peeking out over the top in this picture).  I LOVE this idea.
In the picture below, you get a sense for the long tables, beautiful barn, jam favors, and the views through the doors.  It was stunning.

We dined under more string lights in the big barn before heading back into the other barn for dancing & cake (& an awesome dessert table).

Hopefully more photos to come!  Congrats, Jon & Katie, on your beautiful day!
