A Farm and A Wedding With Homemade Pie

Slowing Down, Featured


There’s nothing like getting out of town over a holiday weekend. We just returned from spending time in the Catskill mountains in upstate New York. We rented space in a Bed & Breakfast, wonderfully comfy and in close proximity to everything we wanted to spend time doing. Like attend our friend Leigh and Paul’s farm wedding across the street. I had never been to a farm wedding before. The bride has her gift registry at a truck and supply company because why on earth would a down-to-earth couple want knick-knacks to fill up their 1744 farmhouse? So smart they are. This was one of the sweetest weddings ever, ooozing with goodness.

Go explore a place in your area, right under your nose might be someplace charming, like I found here last year and here last week.

    Moon, I don’t just love the pictures, I love the order of the photos! Like, the autumn yellow pulling through from the flowers to the grass to the boards to the butterfly… and then the blue picks up through the pics. Lovely. I bet it was a picturesque wedding!

    Lovely post Nancy! I especially like how you shoot food. I suck at it. You’ll have to give me some pointers and some point. :)))) please. :))

    • HI and thanks so much for the compliment. I went to a Kinfolk dinner in Brooklyn (ck their website) and took all those yummy food photos. I had no idea what I was doing, so practiced. I’m heading to a pie contest now. Don’t ask. 🙂 Thanks @susanportnoy:disqus

    Nancy, great images, loved looking at in and around the farm, the wooden barns are so striking in the green surrounds. Thank you for sharing, I enjoy reading about how people in other countries go about their day.
