We all stayed together at The Barn on the Bluff in Elkader, Iowa. The setting was gorgeous! The barn is set up well for groups to come and spend time together. The kids immediately loved it there since the barn itself is lots of fun and there were cows in the pasture down the lane. The matron of honor's two little girls, Millie and Alice, were great playmates for the weekend.

"This is Happening" was a phrase coined by Levi that became a funny theme to the wedding.
