Earlier this year, our life at The Beekman Farm was chronicled in an excellent article in the New York Times. We heard from hundreds of hundreds of people who saw in our dreams of a better life a little bit of their own dreams and aspirations.
Shortly after the article appeared, we received a note from a young woman who had been so inspired by the images that accompanied the story (and by the goats!), that she asked if she could have her wedding at the farm.
After meeting the young bride and some of her friends, there was simply no way we could say ‘no’
As wedding plans are coming together, every gaze out into the flower garden over the last month has made me think about the blushing brides of June.
…but maybe that’s just projection. What do you think?
Perhaps all of these glorious blooms are what attract so many brides to the Month of June. Kate, the bride-to-be, chose not to compete with nature’s showiness and is getting married later in the summer. I am certain though that as she makes her way down the stairs and into the formal flower garden, a blush on her cheeks hidden beneath a white veil, all of the remaining blooms of summer will bow in her honor.
