I have only ever heard great things about Herrman, MO. It lived up to every bit of the hype.

Melanie & Ben’s Sweet Clover Farm wedding was so full of personality, I could barely stand it. I laughed the entire time and was so touched to see how much everyone cared for each other.

The bride and her best friends room was as I expected. Loud jams, singing to each other and anticipating the day. What I was pleasantly surprised to find out was that Ben and his groomsmen were the same.

During the first look, as the girls shielded Melanie, the boys stood in complete awe. They hyped her up the whole time, they hugged, they told each other how special they were to each other and how much the wedding meant. Sweet Clover Farms provided the perfect wedding day cover as there were a million places for photos.

How they met

We met in College at Central Methodist University. He had learned that I was in the Psychology Club there, so he joined for a few weeks. Enough time to learn about a conference to attend that he knew I was going to. With the car arrangements, I ended up riding along with him to St. Charles. We talked the entire time; it felt like we were friends that had know each other forever. Later, after we had started seeing each other, we spoke about the electrical, indescribable feeling we both felt when around each other. From that moment on, we both knew that God had a plan for the future that involved us together.

Isn’t that just ridiculously dreamy? Groom culture can sometimes be surrounded by “the old ball and chain”, but there was none of that here. Everyone loved and respected Melanie (which is so easy to see how and why) and everyone was genuinely excited, proud, and happy to be there.

The family dog even joined! Their beloved beagle/basset named Captain who barked every time a cow mooed which made for an adorable cacophony of sound.
