I really loved working with Katherine and Michael. We really got each other. I loved the surprise trumpet for their silly and fun recessional, I loved their dog trotting down the aisle (and just their dog generally...she is welcome to move in at any point...), I loved their extended bluegrass cocktail hour with the full sextet for a real hootenanny, I loved their amazing setting at Wm. H. Buckley Farm, and I loved rocking for them and their friends underneath the August sky. Enjoy Katherine's recap and the great photos by Carla Ten Eyck. Check it all out here in Boho Weddings!
