Meet #SavvyBride, Julianne! This Savvy Bride married her husband Thomas at The Barn at Schwinn Produce Farm in Leavenworth, KS on December 18, 2020!

The venue’s barn is located amidst the idyllic and green countryside of the Salt Creek Valley just outside Leavenworth, Kansas. The grounds feature a beautiful outdoor ceremony location tucked among a grove of shade trees, and a rustic limestone terrace with a picturesque natural backdrop that’s perfect at sunset.

Let’s take a look at this #SavvyBride’s love story, in her own words!

The Proposal

A majority of our dating has been long distance due to his baseball career and my finishing up school. He proposed in Omaha on the pedestrian bridge that connects Iowa and Nebraska.”

“He was standing across the state line in Iowa and I was in Nebraska and said “You know how we started dating in two different states? What if I told you we could stop doing that?” and he got down on one knee and proposed with his grandmother’s ring. I was so surprised! Afterward we took engagement photos in the rain, he planned the surprise engagement photos too!– #SavvyBride Julianne

You’ve got the ring. Next stop, Savvy.

Here’s what #SavvyBride Julianne had to say about her wedding dress shopping experience,

“I wanted to look elegant, classic and timeless. When I used these words to help find a dress at Savvy, Lauren did an amazing job at delivering my dream of a dress. I felt so special in my dress and it was better than I could have imagined!” – #SavvyBride Julianne

The Special Day

“We had an elegant barn wedding. Thomas grew up on a farm and the venue played well into that and the decor was greenery, candles and simplicity with an elegant feel that played into the city girl that I am!

Due to having a wedding during COVID we had a different wedding than we imagined but it was perfect. As a couple, the two of us were able to spend more time together all day and we were able to laugh and enjoy every moment of that day.” – #SavvyBride Julianne
