2 8 S p r i n g | S u m m e r B R I D E Lindsay Sant daniel duncan & NATURE'S WAY 10.1.2016 Ages: She's 27; he's 34. Occupations: Lindsay is the digital media and volunteer coordinator for Yew Dell Botanical Gardens. Dan- iel is a carpenter and course builder at Flying Cross Farm. How they met: They knew each other for many years through mutual friends and began dating when they worked for the same non-profit organization. Engagement story: In 2015, while camping near the Appalachian Trail in North Carolina, they went on a quest to find a waterfall hidden deep in the woods. After a few hours and numer- ous crazy directions, they discovered it. At dusk, thousands of blue ghost fireflies hovered around their campsite. Neither of them had ever seen anything like it, and they later found out that the fireflies are extremely rare. They agreed to visit that same campsite exactly a year later to see if the fireflies would return. They did, and Daniel popped the question. Number of wedding guests: 80. Ceremony and reception: The Highlands private family farm in Henry County. Wedding theme: Elegant garden. Entertainment: Carly Johnson and Craig Wagner. Personal touches: The groom made the wedding arbor using vines collected on a canoe trip to 12 Mile Island on the Ohio River. A cellist and a violinist performed on the balcony over- looking the wedding ceremony in the courtyard. Monarch butterflies were released at the end of the wedding ceremony. Chinese lanterns were lit and lifted into the sky just before the bride and groom left for their honeymoon. One of the bridesmaids performed a Shakespear- ean monologue during the ceremony, and the couple used several linens that belonged to the bride's great grandmother. First-dance song: "The Way You Look Tonight," Frank Sinatra. The day in three words: "Celebrating authentic love." Favorite part of the day: "Just before the ceremony began, the light rain stopped and the sun beamed through the clouds on the courtyard." One disagreement: "The father of the bride wanted the groom and groomsmen to wear white dinner jackets and black ties." Really glad you: "Celebrated our wedding at such a special place. I grew up going to the Highlands Farm and have many precious family memories there." Advice: Keep the wedding intimate so you can enjoy your family and friends.
