Rustic, country charm for a laidback, early summer wedding was the goal for Amanda and Alex and they chose the absolutely perfect venue with The Farmhouse Weddings in Nappanee. Deb and her staff at The Farmhouse always do a phenomenal job in executing every detail of the day, and this celebration was no different with the entire day looking like a spread from a country wedding magazine!
The 160 guests arrived on the picturesque property in the middle of Amish Country for a 4:30pm ceremony held in the Pavilion, and their Nappanee, IN wedding DJ provided the perfect soundtrack to their ceremony based on their unique selections and also worked closely with their pastor to assure the proper microphone position to ensure every word was heard by the guests in the outdoor space. Our separate ceremony sound package is ideal for this scenario, and it’s small size fits perfectly and elegantly into a ceremony being held outside.
The weather was gorgeous, and after the ceremony, guests moved up the hill to the century-old barn for dinner and dancing. A fantastic meal with local favorite Nelson’s Port-o-Pit chicken was served by Elegance in Thyme catering, followed by the traditional cake cutting, heartfelt speeches by Alex’s Best Man and Amanda’s Maid of Honor, and guests even enjoyed the always popular Anniversary Dance where there we two couples in attendance married for nearly 60 years!
The evening concluded with fun on the dancefloor for popular classic and country hits from their Elkhart County DJ, and guests headed for their cars in few of a spectacular hazy summer sunset over the cornfields in the distance. The definition of a perfect day!
