A 120 acre family farm has been farmed by the same family for four generations now. Rivercrest Farm is not only a wedding venue, but also a working farm. When you walk to the barn, you could be greeted by one of the many dogs, maybe the pig who cries if she isn’t fed on time – she’s high maintence like Ms. Piggy, or a goat trying to munch on the photographer. 🙂 The orginal barn is over a 100 years old, while the addition was built a couple decades later. Rivercrest Farm has transformed over the years from a dairy farm to wedding venue with pigs, goats, cattle, horses, a few donkeys that call the rolling hills of Tuscarawas County.
When Gabe and Carissa visited Rivercrest Farm, they quickly envisioned their wedding day taking place in the quaint barn, celebrating with their family and closest friends. Carissa couldn’t wait to decorate the barn with stem after stem of flowers that gave way to an elegant environment.
Carissa and her girls spent their morning getting ready at Rivercrest. She would soon be dressed and ready to walk down the towpath for her first look with Gabe. Gabe was so overcome with a joyous emotion, he could all mutter the words “That’s a lot of dress” when he saw his Bride.
After a couple photos on the towpath, Gabe and Carissa left Rivercrest to head to downtown Dover to be married! After a heartfelt message from the preacher, the two were joined as Husband and Wife in front their family and friends who travled from all over the country to be there.
After the ceremony, everyone traveled back to Rivercrest Farm for the party. Guest would cut up the floor while Carissa and Gabe headed to the top of one of the rolling hills for some beautiful golden hour sunset photos! Horses and donkeys would join in on the photos. Keep a look out for the awesome photobomb ont top of that hill!
Thank you Carissa and Gabe for allowing Jamie and I to spend your wedding day with you! We had a blast! xoxo
