Meet LHF’s own June bride as you join the 1850 farm staff for a recreated pioneer wedding celebration, including a wedding ceremony and cake for the guests! Weddings brought the pioneer community together for traditional foods and fun. Discover the most popular gifts for a pioneer bride and watch the groomsmen ride the groom on a rail to celebrate his new good fortune. Help in the “shivaree” and play a good-natured, very noisy, prank on the wedding couple. LHF visitors will become part of the day’s fun, with ceremonies at 11:00am and 1:30pm. www.LivingHistoryFarms.org
