Mutual friends introduced Jessica O’Donnell and Andrew Criniti shortly after both relocated to the Lehigh Valley, and the two fell in love. Andrew employed a friend to take Jessica out shopping while he set up candles, rose petals, spray-painted hearts and an illuminated sign reading, “Will you marry me, Jessica?” She said yes.
Their wedding on Barn Swallow Farm’s rustic property reflected their simple, nontraditional tastes, cleanly decorated with greenery and giving the bridal party and groomsmen free rein to show off tattoos and modifications. The day was relaxed, with short and sweet handwritten vows by the rippling stream, lawn games to keep guests entertained and a delicious buffet to enjoy at family-style table seating. Andrew’s sister officiated, and nieces from both sides took on roles as flower girls and ring bearers. A Polaroid camera acted as their guest book, capturing the presence of loving family and friends.
