Swan Harbor Farm is coming back to life with the upcoming spring weather! The flowers will start blooming and the lawn will turn a wonderful shade of green! Our wedding season starts next month and although there is a lot going on in the office, behind the scenes during the off season, we all look forward to the hustle, bustle and excitement of the upcoming weddings.
We also like to look back at our previous wedding season and think about all the sweet couples who chose our venue for their special day. We want to introduce one of the couples that we enjoyed assisting with their wedding plans. This was Arianna and Ethan who said “I do” back in April on a rather rainy day. But their joy couldn’t be ruined by a little rain, and we wanted to share a little bit about them.
Arianna and Ethan met on August 11, 2017, in Washington, DC, where they both lived. Ethan, a musician, was playing upright bass in a jazz trio at a house party. A guest, Arianna, wandered into the living room to listen to the music. They may or may not have locked eyes (this part is up for debate), but after his set Ethan went looking for Arianna, finding her on the front porch. The two chatted and the rest, as they say, is history.
While the pandemic delayed Arianna and Ethan’s original wedding plans, they spontaneously were legally married on a trip to Santa Fe, NM, in July 2020 before celebrating with family and friends at Swan Harbor Farm. The couple now live in Durham, NC, where Ethan is pursuing a doctorate in music composition at Duke University. Arianna is a transportation reporter with Politico. They love their new house, which they share with their two cats, Arnold and Matty. We wish Arianna and Ethan all the best in their new lives together!
We love sharing the news of the couples who have been married at Swan Harbor Farm and truly look forward to the upcoming nuptials here at our beautiful venue.
