A Few Wedding Details

Three things to know about this wedding…

  1. We’ll be celebrating out at the ranch all night, a tent is highly recommended and if you have extras let us know.
  2. As a huge part of our lives revolves around potlucks, our wedding will also be potluck style.
  3. Because of point two, we’re not too worried if you bring a friend(s).

Loose Non-Binding Wedding Day Schedule (that is mostly correct)

  • 2:00 – 6:00 – Show up at ranch.  Set up your tent.  Help set up.  Play games.  Bouncy House.  Hang out.
  • We’re going one road leading to the ranch about 10 minutes before the ceremony so if you are cutting it close take the first entrance (map to follow)
  • 6:15 – Wedding
  • 7:00 – Mingling, finish setting up tent, set our your food, start eating
  • Let the Celebrations begin
  • Sunday at 9:30 – we’ll provide breakfast tacos materials – well looking for some cooks, so if you think your up for the job, let us know.

What to Bring

  • Tent
  • Food item for potluck
  • Camping Chair
  • Sleeping Bag
  • Toiletries
  • Change of Clothes
  • Flashlight
  • Extra Drinks (if you want, we’ll have lemonade, tea, water and some NXNW Beer)
  • Friendly dogs are welcome as well (there’s no fence on the ranch)


  • Nice Casual – Jeans are OK – Bring Something More Comfy if you Want
    (there might be active games later in the evening so you might want tennis shoes)
  • Probably no heels – you’ll sink
  • Could be cold or hot – we won’t know until the morning of, and even then it could change, (hot, cold, rainy or dry) We’ll have a tent, but in case of rain, we’ll all get wet.

Harvest Party History

A little event history…

Every year the Ledlie’s throw an overnight camp out party on their ranch.  All their friends show up, pitch tents, bring food and celebrate the harvest moon.  Really, it’s a just a great excuse to get together, smoke meats, eat good food, show of your latest home brew, and hang out around a camp fire until you fall asleep in your camp chair.  There are many infamous Harvest Party stories, good years, rainy years, the years we can’t talk about.  Overall, it’s just a good time.

Engagement Audio Slideshow

Our talented friend Lindsay Patterson made us this amazing audio slide show.  She interviewed us each separately and a little together, then used all of her radio producer magic to make the awesome audio and combined it with great shots that she took of us at the park with our puppy.  We LOVE it!  Thanks Lindsay!  (
