Real Wedding Album: An All-DIY Farm Party

Savannah Roberts, 33, and Hibbard Nash, 36, were friends for two years when Savannah, a photo producer, decided to make the first move. “We were outside a bar, and I thought, What’s the hold up? So I kissed him and ran down the block — I didn’t know what to do next,” Savannah recalls. Five years later, Hibbard, a photographer, proposed on a plane on their way to Mexico, and in September 2014, the pair wed at a 32-acre farm in the Catskills surrounded by 72 friends and family members. They enlisted their circle of artist pals to help them DIY everything — from tepees “so our friends could smoke pot or make out without our parents seeing” to dream-catchers they strung from trees. The outdoor ceremony was timed to start just before the golden hour, and afterward guests moved inside the barn for a farm-to-table dinner catered by Miss Lucy’s Kitchen, followed by dancing and a bonfire. “When our DJ played ‘Jump in the Line,’ I hiked my dress up and started working the entire room, like a buzzing bumblebee, with Hibbard following me,” Savannah remembers. “The real dirty dancing came later on in the night.”
