Hillary and Porter-Breene Hollow Farm

     I have known Hillary for many years, and have watched her grow into a remarkable woman. She holds a special place in my heart so when she asked me to help her with her wedding, I don't think I could have said yes any faster.  Hillary's family owns a dairy farm, and she wanted this to be where her reception be held. She is living in Kansas, so it made her trips to RI short and far between, however, she had her mind on accomplishing many tasks each time she was home. Hillary assisted me with many weddings in her high school days, so she had a pretty clear vision of what she did and did not want. Family was the most important part of Hillary and Porter's day.  The ceremony was at the First Baptist Church in East Greenwich, with Porter's Dad being a pastor at his church in Nebraska, they knew they wanted him to be included in the service.  After the church, everyone headed to the farm for the reception.  Hillary had beautiful Gerber Daisy's in all of her centerpieces. She also had wood chopped and brought their own meat from Kansas.  The desserts were Allie's Donuts, which were gone as soon as they were out. I was so blessed to be a part of this day. Congratulations Hillary and Porter!
