LUCIA & SKOT - SEVEN SEVEN ACRES, OHIO INTIMATE COUNTRY FARM WEDDING
Lucia and Skot dance to the beat of their own drum and wanted their wedding to be an intimate, fun, relaxed, celebration with their closest friends and family. I LOVE this rhythm. It speaks to my soul. They did't have a rented venue, but they do have 77 acres of land to throw a massive celebration exactly the way they wanted. They didn't have bridesmaids or groomsmen - but they did have their closest friends come from all over the U.S, where Skot & Lucia shuttled them in from the airport by an actual school bus. They didn't plan a first dance, but they had one - when they wanted, when it felt right. They made toasts and cut the cake, when they wanted. They had a ceremony but didn't say vows - instead wrote each other letters to open at their 5th anniversary. They served dinner - but literally prepped and served an authentic dish themselves. It truly felt like a celebration we were apart of as family or friends, rather than en event we were capturing. The entire vibe and energy was unique, close and incredibly fun. To my other couples - take a note from their book if fun, connected celebrations of love are your style. .
I knew I was going to love these guys when Skot told me they recently relocated to Ohio from Colorado. (if you know allen and I - we literally did that a year ago). Lucia's from Argentina... Skot's from Cincinnati, but they met in L.A. where they then moved and lived in Denver, Colorado for 2 years. A year ago they bought Seven Seven Acres (77 acres) in Hamersville, OH where they now live and decided to have their epic county-styled wedding.
Not to take away from their love story here, but I say epic because they put on marketing events for a living - so when it comes to party planning, they know their stuff. For one, their house IS a venue. 77 acres to do -whatever- you want on your wedding day. And they DID. Golf carts to shuttle guests around the property, a pre-ceremony cocktail hour, tons of yard games, a vintage camper photo booth, a band AND DJ, oh, and an actual fireworks display and gigantic bonfire. Read along to follow the details of their incredible day.
Here's to Skot & Lucia and a lifetime of them receiving the love and laughter they give to everyone else around them (insert raised glass) and to making it feel like we were friends apart of their day, while also making it extremely hard to turn down all of the drinks Skot was offering all night. Congratulations Skot & Lucia! CHEERS!
