Tom and I got married 2 years ago today. I think our wedding is really what set the stage for our urban farm. I know that sounds kind of strange, but it’s true!
Except for the photography and the cake we did nearly everything ourselves. I sewed Tom’s jacket and vest, my dress, my Mother’s dress, and Paul’s kilt.

We did all the decorations, including making tissue puffs, painting the plastic chandelier black and glittering all those pumpkins and bones.
We even took it upon ourselves to do the food – mostly. My brother-in-law in all his awesomeness roasted a whole pig for us and barbecued all the chicken. It was my first experience dealing with whole meat animals.

It really was the perfect day. We had spent 2 years intensively planning it and when it was all done we needed something new to focus on. That new thing ended up being urban farming.
If you’re so inclined, you can find more of our wedding photos here.
I leave you with one of my favorite photos of the night – our grim reaper statue stalking an unwitting guest.
