Friday was a beautiful day for me and Scott to visit the venue where Mike and Sierra are having their wedding dinner and reception.

It's callled Wadley Farms...located in Lindon, Utah. It's a charming farm-turned-wedding center. Here's a bit of Wadley Farms history from their website:
"Wadley Historic Farm has been in the family since 1869. The first wedding was held in 1995. 
A relative asked if they could have their wedding reception in the barn, "Okay, let us pull out the tractor and rearrange the hay." It has evolved from that moment to what it is today.
The Barn was built in 1951 in Orem Utah and was moved to Wadley Farms property in 1991.
The Railroad Building was once a railroad station in the mining town of Toplift, Utah. It was moved to the property in 1993.
The groom’s dressing room is the original grainery from Wadley Farms.
The red barn in the pasture was orginally located at the Robinson family farm built in 1894.
We are still a working farm today some of the crops we grow are corn, pumpkins, grapes, apples, peaches, squash, pears, and tomatoes. The farm raises farm bred, free range angus beef."

The fall flowers were wonderful mixed with afternoon sunshine and a bit of warmth.
This is the old barn where everything will take place.

Of course, we're pretty sure that on December 15 these lovely stone steps and the surrounding grounds will be covered with snow. They tell us that they have lots twinkly lights and it will look magical!

 Lots of room for lots of dear family and friends.

With planner in hand and feeling grateful to be the mom-of-the-groom this time!
We also got to have a fun dinner at Sierra's parents' house. That's her dad, Bryce, in red.
 Everything was decorated for Halloween. Sierra's mom is an over-the-top holiday decorator! And a wonderful cook...our dinner was delicious. Scott couldn't believe the pumpkin pie.

Here's Leslie and Sierra with their darling Halloween tree. They are so darling and we feel so lucky!
