Abby and Ben’s Celebrity Dairy Wedding

Abby and Ben and Goat

Abby and Ben were married at Celebrity Dairy, which is a goat dairy just outside of Siler City, NC.  When I was growing up, we lived on some acreage in Northern California and had some livestock, including my pony and, unfortunately, 2 goats named Laverne and Shirley.  It was my sister’s and my chore every morning before school to milk the goats.  The goats were sweet and I liked them just fine, but I hated goats’ milk.  To this day, I can’t stand the smell of goats’ milk or even products made from it like goats’ milk soap!  But, goats are cute and I love outdoor wedding venues and Celebrity Dairy is no exception.

There is an Inn at the dairy, which is where Abby got ready with the help of her mother and her sister, matron of honor.  Getting ready shots are usually some of my favorites as they can be so emotional:
