I'm the modern milkmaid at Birdsong Farm, and I am marrying the love of my life on September 7, 2018. We are both dairy farmers (he's a Holstein boy and I'm a Jersey girl), and we joke that the only thing in my life that *might* be more important than my fiancé are my beloved cows.

Happily married 🎉

Mani for the Groom?
Naomi of Beauty, On August 14, 2018 at 17:46

This feels like a weird question, but are any of you sending your FH in for a mani before the wedding? I love the look of work-worn hands on a man, but my FH is a farmer so I'm debating if I want him...

Gifts for the Bridesmaids
Naomi of Plan a wedding, On July 29, 2018 at 10:03

40 days until the wedding, and I'm still can't decide on gifts for my bridesmaids! Would a gift certificate for their favourite shop be too "cheap"? I was thinking of a $50 gift certificate to...

I am booking my hair stylists and makeup artists for the wedding. Who usually gets their hair and makeup done first? Bride? Bridesmaids? Also, is it better to get my makeup application before or after...

Hotel Venue for Reception
Naomi of Plan a wedding, On February 7, 2018 at 14:12

My FH wants to have our wedding reception at a local hotel so that we don’t need to hire a caterer for the reception and guests don’t need to drive anywhere after the party ends. This could mean that...
