Summer Garden inspired wedding at Bell Farms

   As the leaves are changing earlier this year here in Iowa, a great team of wedding vendors are still enjoying every last days of summer with our Bell Farm garden inspiration elopement.

   The person who we would like to thank for bringing all of us Iowa vendors together for this styled shoot is Whitney Leighton of Little Blackbird Bakery. The story behind her styled shoot is a positive message of love and acceptance with our interracial bride and groom who are tucked away in the woods for their wedding day.

   We gather together at Bell Farm in Runnells Iowa where you can be welcomed by Ellen and her family. Their heart is in the traditional ways of farming and enjoying the wholesome goodness of what love and nature brings. Surrounded by wild flowers, buzzing bees from their honey bee farm, and their feathery friends, Bell Farm is the perfect setting for a small and close wedding elopement. Enjoy!

Thank You!
