Katy's family owns a farm just outside of Lebanon. Alex used to work on the farm and actually grew up just down the road from Katy and her parents' farm. It's the classic country story of the boy falling in love with "the farmer's daughter." :-)
Staying true to their farming origins, Katy and Alex poured corn and soybeans into mason jars in lieu of a traditional unity candle ceremony.
After the ceremony we went back to Katy's family's farm for some photos in the fields and, of course, on the big green tractor!
The above photo is one of my favorites from the day. It was taken in the middle of the road that connects their two family homes.
Congratulations, Katy and Alex! May the road ahead of you two only bring you happiness!
