Kate says there was no hesitation when it came to choosing a wedding venue. “I always wanted to get married on Blake’s parents farm. It’s a special place to us as we’ve spent many years together and with friends and family there. I didn’t even look at any wedding venues and pushed to make the DIY wedding work (as difficult and time consuming as it was!). I wanted it to be a 3-day festival rather than just 4 hours in a venue.”
The festival format allowed plenty of opportunity for celebration after the wedding itself. The next day guests were treated to recovery Bloody Marys, bacon and egg rolls, a surprise helicopter ride, bottles of Veuve and an afternoon of live music. Kate recalls, “Everyone dressed up and got into the spirit of the festival (face glitter and all) and partied for another night under the stars next to a huge bonfire.”
