We are so excited to share alllllll the images from Joni & Keaton’s big day at Fair Oaks Farms! This wedding is one for the books and we are obsessed with all of the little details that went in to making this day so perfect. From the bow ties all the way to the tree watering ceremony, you won’t want to miss this beautiful day! But first, a little about the venue!
Fair Oaks is well known for their family friendly farm where kids go for yearly school field trips, but it can be so much more. Farm Oaks is also a place to get married, surprisingly!! The Fair Oaks Farms hotel features NINETY-NINE guest rooms… insanity! This is including thirty-one specialty suites! WOW! This beautiful hotel is also jam packedddd with amenities, like a gorgeous pool and water slide and a clean fitness center with great natural light. Trails around the beautiful property and so much more. All of this in the comfort of Fairfield by Marriott’s 100% Guarantee where “we promise you will be satisfied or we will make it right.”
Their address is 856 N 600 East, Fair Oaks, IN 47943… a quick google maps, apple maps, or online search will point ya in the right direction. Literally!
As previously mentioned before, Fair Oaks has a beautiful pool with a waterslide to go with, a clean fitness center, ninety-none guest rooms, and thats just the start of the list. On their website, they say “Exchange vows beside an idyllic waterfall. Take pictures surrounded by blooming trees bursting with apples ready to pluck. Dance away the evening in our ballroom, in our Event field, or, during apple season, in our apple orchard. With a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces, you can start your lives together exactly the way you want.”
This place is a huge win for wedding planning. An onsite hotel, menu creation, decor and linen packages, entertainment, space for up to 200 guest, covered and uncovered areas,
Ya know, maybe we have said this too many times… jk, no we haven’t! INCLUSIVITY! If your business is inclusive, you’ve got our business. That is the bottom line, quite frankly. Fair Oaks does a fabulous job at being there for their couples from start to finish, not only is their location to dieeee for, but the way they care and provide for every couple is too. We have had the joy of shooting at a couple weddings at Fair Oaks and every single one is a wedding to remember. This Fair Oaks Farm Wedding was absolutely no different. We. Love. Fair. Oaks. Farms.
Listen to this… you can literally stay AT Fair Oaks Farms after your Fair Oaks Farm Wedding. They have their own hotel right there, baby! Just when you think… nothing gets better/more convent/more enticing/sweeter than this, Fair Oaks Farms goes “watch this!” and we are here for it. A Fair Oaks Farm Wedding is a wedding that is all inclusive (in every way!) and is all at one place. No traveling too and from required. Not to mention, you can eat at their Farmhouse while you are enjoying a weekend away!
We mentioned this before, but why should we bring up the adorable cows again?!! Fair Oaks Farms is known for allowing people to get up close and personal with the dairy industry. Spend the day at Fair Oaks Farms and discover your favorite kinds of cheese, try all their ice-cream, and even… watch a baby cow be born! YES! They have a viewing barn where you can have a front row seat to new life. Nothing beats that right there.
It was Keaton who asked Joni out first! Joni was hesitant, but well well well… here we are! Their first date was a concert and after that, their relationship took off!
Together for four and half years… Keaton asked Joni to marry her in front of a large tree in Redwood National Forest. Can you hear US SCREAMING?! That’s so dang adorable we have to take a minute.. omg. They set up the camera as if they were taking a family picture and then they got on one knee. Then they hiked 11 miles – again!! We LOVE this.
They say they rarely go out together since they have three kids… but when they do, they normally spend time in the evening together watching shows and eating snacks!! MOOD.
In 20 years they want to remember… “how in-sync our lives are right now. The kids are in school close by, we have jobs that allow us to be on the same schedule, and all of us like to do a lot of the same things. We get to spend more time together because managing tasks and children has been simpler.” CUUUUTE!
