Last Saturday, August 10, we had the pleasure of hosting Chris, Courtney, and their fantastic guests at Bishop Farm. Their wedding took place in front of the Milk House on a perfect 75 degree day. Courtney strolled down the aisle looking beautiful and relaxed and so ready to be married. Everyone in attendance could certainly concur that this couple was a perfect match. The bridesmaids looked country-chic in their different-styles of navy blue dresses with small green accents that reflected their personalities yet united them all. After the ceremony the guests enjoyed a cocktail hour with cheese, fruit and shrimp cocktail on our patio to await the beginning of the reception which was kicked off with a dramatic opening of the barn door. Courtney’s sister, Jen read an incredible poem she wrote for the newly weds and Chris’s brother, Jon gave a heartfelt speech about his relationship with his brother, watching him grow up and find such an incredible partner in Courtney. The barn was filled with so much warmth and love that the rest of the evening was guaranteed to be no less than perfect.
As dinner, catered by White Mountain Chalet wrapped up the band started to set up and a huge game of whiffle ball began just outside of the barn as the sun set across the property. This was a first for Bishop Farm, and it was so great to see everyone enjoying the absolutely incredible weather which grew cooler steadily as the sun set and the dancing began to heat things up. Chris and Courtney hired Orange Crush, an 80’s tribute band, for their wedding and they were fantastic!
We could tell this group was special from the moment they started to arrive on Friday to set up the barn and get ready for their rehearsal dinner, which was catered by MacDaddy’s Rollin’ Smoke BBQ. Everyone was so warm, down to earth, and excited for Chris and Courtney. You can really tell a lot about someone from the friends they keep and Chris and Courtney’s authenticity and kindness was reflected in each of their guests. Thanks to the newly weds for choosing to spend their big day here with us!!!
