Real Wedding: Julia & Mark at The Conrad Botzum Farmstead in Akron, Ohio

This nature-inspired country wedding at the Conrad Botzum Farmstead in Akron, Ohio, is fun, relaxed and so very pretty, with the sweetest details. The favors are some of the cutest we've ever seen. We especially love how Julia and Mark put an emphasis on making the wedding fun for their guests, with cornhole games, campfire s'mores, and even ice cream made on site!

From the bride, Julia:

The natural beauty of our venue, located within the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Akron, Ohio, was a huge inspiration during the wedding planning process. The blue sky, green meadow, and rollings hills were the perfect backdrop for our ceremony. Another inspiration was creating an enjoyable experience for our family and friends. We added a few playful and interactive aspects to the wedding by planning outdoor games such as corn hole, a bonfire, a yogurt/ice cream station setup by Piccadilly where the yogurt/ice cream was created on-site using liquid nitrogen, and a pierogi station. One of my favorite memories of the day was sitting next to Mark during dinner and looking out at our family and friends -- it was incredibly special to see all their smiling faces and to feel all the love in the room.
