Meet Lindsay!

Hi there!  I’m Lindsay - a small town girl living on the farm with my handsome husband Henry.  I am a planner, organizer, and realist.  

The Heiser Farms wedding venue is such a fun side hustle for me.  Its an opportunity to be creative and has allowed me to meet so many amazing people - couples and vendors! I love working with couples and encouraging them to make their wedding about THEM.  I truly believe a wedding should be a reflection of the bride and groom; not what Aunt Gertrude wants (sorry if you have an Aunt Gertrude!).  And the best part?!  Watching two people get married surrounded by beautiful farm scenery, spending the weekend celebrating their marriage, and relaxing with close friends and family.  

Weekdays are spent in town where I work for a cooperative financing farmers.  Unlike many other creatives in this industry, I happen to love my “corporate” job and plan to keep it because my career fits my personality and strengths.  I mean, who wouldn’t want the best of both worlds - being a part of a structured team and being an entrepreneur on the weekends?!?  

Aside from work, you can catch me enjoying lazy Saturday mornings, adventuring somewhere new, or relaxing in Pacific City.  And always with Henry by my side!  Gosh I love being married to him.  We support each other’s dreams and are total goofballs together; making each other laugh every. single. day.  We were married at Heiser Farms on September 12, 2015.  

If you’re dying to know more (and may I just say this is so awkward writing about yourself!), here’s five things you might not know about me.

  • I hate coffee.  The smell, the taste, everything!
  • I love sugar.  I’m probably this biggest sweet tooth you’ll ever meet.  I prefer fruity candy but I won’t turn down chocolate.  
  • I’m always joking around.  I believe if you haven’t had a good belly laugh in a while, you’re doing something wrong.
  • Pacific City is my favorite place.  Maybe I shouldn’t tell you that because more and more people are finding out about that little gem of a place.  But it’s where Henry and I were engaged, where we go to get away, and it also works out that Henry can fish and crab there.
  • Planning is fun for me.  It makes me so sad when brides don’t enjoy planning their wedding.  I just want to swoop in and plan it all for them so they can be focused on what’s important - marrying your love.

So that's me!  Well, sort of.  As much as I want to fit on this little internet screen.  Thanks for stopping by! 

 

 

How It All Started - 

My lovely in-laws, John and Kristi, moved to Grand Island in the fall of 1991 when Henry was just a baby.  They had a dream to own a farm and bring Henry and his little sister, Maddie, up in a rural setting.  

After remodeling their 1930's era red barn, they saw it as a center for gatherings and opened their pumpkin patch in October 1994.  Popularity grew and they needed more area to expand so John and Kristi purchased a neighboring farm in 2008.  After renovating much of this farm, including the white barn, the pumpkin patch moved to its new location in 2010.  

Shortly after renovations were complete, a family friend asked if they could have their wedding at the farm.  Simple as that, Kristi started hosting weddings at Heiser Farms in 2011!  

Not long after Henry and I were married at the farm, we took over the wedding venue portion of Heiser Farms.  We hope to continue improving the farm and it’s traditions for many years to come.
