On a beautiful Fall day, Luke Lichtenwalner and Tabitha Oplinger tied the knot! October 6, 2012 was a day where you might have seen some unusual sights around the Emmaus area. If you did, here’s the story!
The newlyweds left their church, St Matthew’s EC Church, in a chariot fit for…a farmer? Expecting a limousine, Luke and Tabitha were surprised to find a tractor and a hay wagon ready to take them for a ride! The entire wedding party began their celebration seated on stacks of hay in the back of the wagon.
No traditional rose garden photos for these two; they visited family farmland and posed for some very special “outdoor” pictures.
Born to a family where Black Angus and chickens were part of the “backyard”, Luke’s love has always been the farm. Restoring a stone farmhouse on the property, Luke and Tabitha will continue the family tradition of farming in Upper Milford Township.
