After meeting on a Teach for America assignment in Kansas City, it was clear Alix and Andrew were meant for each other. To celebrate their wedding, the couple planned a late-summer weekend fête at Lied Lodge in Nebraska with space enough for all their guests.
Alix wore a silk taffeta gown with a structural pleated crumbcatcher and romantic crystal beaded belt. Pearl-covered d'Orsay slides by Something Bleu, a pair of crystal drops from Kate Spade and a simple veil completed her look, and she carried a simple white bouquet of freesias, tulips, hydrangeas and camellias by Burton Tyrrell Flowers. Her maids looked smart in steely gray silk taffeta dresses from J.Crew, while Andrew accessorized his navy JoS A Bank suit with a white shirt, navy polka dot tie, navy-edged pocket square and brown shoes all from J.Crew.
After a traditional ceremony and their first kiss as husband and wife, Alix, Andrew and their guests headed back to farm for an intimate reception. The bride and her mother crafted each detail, from custom cornhole boards and floral arrangements to the homemade jam favors, with their friends and family in mind. Burlap runners were stamped with table numbers, a large white tent provided shade from the warm afternoon sun and after dinner, there was dancing beneath bistro lights hung in the barn. A slice of the Lincoln Cake Lady's confections couldn't begin to match the sweetness of this couple's celebration.
