Local Love

Abbey Knous & Edward Ngugi

Living History Farms’ Church of the Land provided the ideal venue for Abbey Knous and Edward Ngugi’s summer wedding. “We wanted an intimate location, and I grew up going to Living History Farms camps and events,” Abbey says. Against that pastoral backdrop was a joyous celebration that included dancing for hours and “Edward’s mom and aunt infusing Kenyan wedding traditions into their toast to us at the reception,” Abbey says. “And of course having our little boy, Aiden, with us was absolutely perfect. He even walked down the aisle with his wheeled walker!”

Wedding date: Aug. 24, 2019
