a wedding, and suddenly autumn

Last month, Sunflower River had the pleasure of hosting the wedding of our friends Victoria and Logan. It’s been some years since we’ve hosted an event like this, and it was an unexpected delight. The farm is clean and clear, with a fresh-scrubbed feel that all of us are loving – including the happy couple. The ceremony was held in our main ritual ground, a large circle under the 200 year old Grandfather Cottonwood, ringed with grapevines on trellises and fruit trees. We put on a fresh coat of mulch for the occasion, and the space looks better than ever.

The theme of the wedding was The Night Circus, and the bridal party decorated accordingly. After the ceremony, the reception was held in the fire circle, with snacks, circus performers, and games. Following this, a food truck from the Street Food Institude provided catering. Dinner was set up in a pavilion in the pasture, with an aerial performer and acrobats from Wise Fool providing entertainment.

It was an entirely lovely evening, graced with beautiful weather and a lively but mellow, fun, event. And everybody who wanted to got to visit with the baby goats.

If you have an event you think would be a good fit for our space, please reach out! We’re interested in hosting more events like this, and have plenty of space for events up to around 150 people.
