Chester County Event Photographer | Wyebrook Farm

Business

It doesn’t get any more “farm to table” than dinner this past Saturday night at Wyebrook Farm, a sprawling 300+ acre masterpiece of sustainable agriculture created by Dean Carlson. The farm prides itself on creating the best food and healthiest animals without artificial pesticides, fertilizers, herbicides, hormones, or antibiotics.

A tour of the picturesque Chester County venue led to
incredible, old stone buildings,
lush and gorgeous landscaping with fig trees, a small vineyard, flowers, and yards,
a market offering fresh meats, cheeses, and produce,
a café with fresh, organic menu offerings
a beautiful stone garden with plants, flowers, and herbs available for purchase
a pond,
grazing cattle,
snorting pigs,
a friendly farm cat,
and so many more nooks and crannies.

The place was incredible. As a wedding photographer, I couldn’t help but picture a breezy wedding with guests mingling at picnic tables and wandering around the grounds. The weather that night gave up streaming sunlight, unreal clouds, and a quick summer storm.

Jeffrey Miller led the operation which featured a five course snout-to-tail feast, a “paean to pork”. As is always the case when Jeffrey Miller Catering is involved, the presentation and execution were second to none.

Guests started with a beverage station that offered hibiscus iced tea and a Tipsy Arnold Palmer as well as passed hors d’ouevres of mini pork tongue tacos, stuffed roasted fingerling potatoes, and chicharron with pulled pork.

The dinner group was escorted inside the restored 19th century fieldstone barn that featured stone walls, exposed beamed ceiling, and long communal tables dotted with white hydrangea, mason jars, and burlap runners.

I see that you’re salivating. Go ahead and clean yourself up; I’ll wait.

The evening was incredible. The venue, weather, food, and overall ambiance couldn’t be matched. Make a date of it and go to Wyebrook Farm. It really is that magical.

“It is vitally important that we can continue to say, with absolute conviction, that organic farming delivers the highest quality, best-tasting food, produced without artificial chemicals or genetic modification, and with respect for animal welfare and the environment, while helping to maintain the landscape and rural communities.”

[the value of] Guest Sign-in Books
If there’s one thing that couples fall in love with during a consultation that they never considered before, it’s the guest sign-in book. With good reason too.I’ve seen my share of lame-o guestbooks. You know what I’m talking about: that weak keepsake with “Our Wedding” in gold cursive on the front and nothing but rows of lines inside. It’s an attendance book and you’re not likely to ever flip through it again after the wedding.Consider an alternative: a guest sign-in book that makes your guests ooh and ahh and something that you’d be tickled pink to have on your coffee table after the wedding. What a concept! Lindsay Docherty Photograph ...
