Who says weddings have to be on Saturday afternoons? This Oklahoma couple decided to do things a little differently and opted for Sunday morning nuptials at Spain Ranch, a 44-acre property outside of Tulsa with a contemporary barn, horse fences, a pond and bison roaming the tree-covered property.

The massive A-frame barn set a sunny, romantic tone for the a.m. ceremony, complemented by bridesmaids in a rainbow of pretty pastels (men wore suspenders and bowties) and a low-key brunch following the ceremony. If we know one thing to be true, it's that this white-out barn will give you the warm-and-fuzzies inside.

Outdoor Community Gathering
Long Table Dinner
The UBC Farm
REPORTER: Alyssa Brown

We’re always chatting about the importance of gatherings to make people feel like they’re part of a community, but our gatherings would be null without great food and drink. The team at Canada’s Farmacie is totally with us on that point. This crew not only produces amazing pop-up events where they connect folks over delicious meals, but they do it all in the name of fundraising for local farms, small businesses and non-profit foundations. 

The Farmacie crew recently hosted a Garden of Eden community dinner in the poplar grove at UBC Farm in Vancouver to raise funds for Thrive Alive. They asked guests to show up in their Thursdays' finest (aka: farm chic) and prepared the attendees to expect the venue to completely blow their farm-to-table, garden of eden dreams out of the water. How much fun does that sound?! We turned to them for the whole story behind these amazing (and gorgeous!) events. Be sure to check out their event newsletters, because this is a team that’s worth keeping an eye on. More from Farmacie below.
