Attending The Wedding Of The Fabulous Beekman Boys

Perhaps you’ve seen the reality television show, The Fabulous Beekman Boys, which follows Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell as they discover how to become farmers and also launch their lifestyle brand, Beekman 1802?  Their farm is located in Sharon Springs, New York, which was once a bustling spa community during the 19th century.  During its peak of popularity, Sharon Springs played host to 10,000 visitors each summer, including members of the Vanderbilt family and Oscar Wilde.  Brent and Josh bought the Beekman 1802 estate in 2007 and have done a fine job of restoring the house and growing the farm.  They even opened a retail space in the village where visitors to Sharon Springs can purchase their wares.  I’ve known Brent and Josh for many years and I was so happy to receive an invitation to their marriage, which I attended last Friday.
