Quarters Farm was not only a beautiful place for Krystyn and Joe to celebrate their wedding day but is also close to their hearts. Joe grew up in the family home on the property. The bed and breakfast and barn were transformed into the most gorgeous wedding space, too. Their casual boho vibe included elements of Lord of the Rings, one of the couples’ favorite series. They also planned events and outfit changes to celebrate Joe’s Scottish heritage, including Highland games. Don’t miss all of their decor touches, much of which was handmade by Krystyn’s sister. Keep an eye out for a huge “One Ring,” jars of wildflowers, a flower dude, and loads of kilts…

Don’t miss the black and red dress with red crystal crown (Persephone was queen of the underworld, after all!), florals with deep roses, dark leaves, and hints of forbidden fruit, and the huge and amazing goth chic cake.
