Navey and Jacob: Schafer Century Barn, Adair Iowa

December 29, 2020

Navey and Jacob are high school sweethearts! He forgot his inhaler- she had one! They started snap chatting a few months later, and the rest is history.

These two have such a beautiful young love that effects everyone they come in contact with! Navey is so kind and genuinely loving to everyone she meets- even though I only met her a handful of times, she’s someone that leaves their mark on you! Jacob was so fun and easy to hang out with throughout the whole experience! He was so madly in love with his fiance (now wife) and it just showed the entire wedding day!

These two got married on Naveys family farm! The Schafer Century Barn was built in 1915, and renovated for Naveys older brother and sisters weddings in August and October of 2015! Since then they’ve built Schafer Barn on the Hill and purchased a church in-between the two locations for another ceremony space! It was so special for them to have their wedding at her home, and with the family property!

A few highlights of their wedding day:

Navey’s grandmother had passed away in 2020, so she made sure her grandma was with her on the wedding day. With a photo patch sewn into her dress, and she wore a necklace with her grandmas fingerprints and signature as she got ready for her wedding day!

My favorite part of their ceremony was when their parents came up and prayed over Navey and Jacob! Right before they said their I-do’s their family came up and prayed over their children as they began this beautiful journey called marriage! Having supportive parents and family is so important in this life!

Jacobs father had passed away some years ago, so he had a photo patch sewn into his tie so his dad was close to his heart throughout the day!

The cake topper their had on their wedding cake was the one her grandma and grandpa had on their cake decades before! It’s the sentimental bits of a wedding that pull on our heartstrings and give so much life to a wedding day!

NOTE: when you have a sparkler exit, do not try to light them all at once. You may have a furious ball of fire for a few seconds and no sparklers. And make sure everyone’s phones are handy in case that happens 😉
