Sarah & Richard

November 24

Brenham, Texas

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The horse barn. I had said from the very beginning that I wanted to get married in a barn and it was the perfect combination of rustic elegance meets country. 

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

My dress, it was the first one I tried on

The tree we were married under was full of wonderful fall colors

A last-minute sign that my dad and Richard made for the entrance to our venue.

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

Be flexible. No matter how much you plan, something will always go wrong but just embrace it.  

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

This is a tough one. it would have to be between when I saw my husband for the first time during our sneak peek or listening to all the toasts made by sweet friends and family. It meant the world to us to have all the ones we hold close to our hearts at our wedding.

Relaxed, Bohemian Barn Wedding in Canada

Posted by Kim on Apr 17, 2013

Caitlin & Jeff

September 8

Ontario, Canada

~~~~~~~~

From the Photographer:

“I was very excited to shoot Caitlin and Jeff’s wedding knowing that it was going to be just a little different than the traditional. We eagerly arrived early afternoon at the family farm, and we knew immediately we were in for a treat from how calm everyone was, even the dogs, who greeted us. The ceremony was held on the front lawn – the location held a special place in the couple’s hearts. Caitlin and Jeff arrived at the outdoor reception in a candy red vintage ford. By then, the clouds had lifted, guests mingled amongst the hand-picked and crafted vintage decor and the tent was glowing with garden lights, colorful bunting,  hay bails, and eclectic seating at each table.

There was a certain magic in the air that evening that I can’t really describe, you could feel the love. It was  like we were attending a long overdue family reunion more than a wedding and thats the way Caitlin and Jeff wanted it. Guests were treated to a superb meal from a local catering company buffet with an build your own appetizer burrito station, to endless gourmet salads and corn on the cob to top it off. It seemed like the buffets went on forever.  A homemade pie station ended the perfect meal.

After dinner, everyone’s hearts filled up with touching speeches (I think the photographers even cried!), we saw people hugging, smiling, and lots of watery eyes.  A little fire pit outside kept people cozy while everyone danced without any hesitation. You could hear the laughter and guests singing out loud until it was time for us to wrap up and head home. We ended the night with one last shot – the bride and groom in a bohemian tent under the stars. Everything was perfect.” – Clint Russell of Renaissance Studios Photography

Beautiful Blush and Coral Barn Wedding in California

Posted by Caitlin on Mar 29, 2013

Ashley & Scott

August 4

Nipomo, California 

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The beauty, the originality and the character of the Dana-Powers barn venue made me fall in love with it. Although is was just a “barn,” it felt like the most gorgeous and unique place to have a wedding. The surrounding hills were breathtaking and the furnishings and details that stood throughout the barn were something I couldn’t live without. No other venue we looked at could compare. All our guests didn’t know what to expect, and when they arrived that day, they were all blown away by the beauty.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

 1. Walking down the aisle with my dad, being filled with so much joy and excitement, seeing Scott for the first time that day. Although I thought I’d be full of emotions, I was just so happy.

2. Seeing the flowers come together. I was overly pleased with what my florist did. They were all so beautiful throughout the entire wedding venue.

3. Enjoying all my guests and watching them all have a good time. Being with everyone and celebrating for one night made Scott and I truly happy.

3. Give us the one moment from your wedding that you can’t stop thinking about.

Exchanging vows will forever be the most sentimental and memorable part of my wedding day. Listening to the words of our pastor and looking into Scott’s eyes made me the happiest girl. And I’m so glad all our family and friends were there to share it with. Our pastor said some very touching words to our parents on our behalf, and it was another very special part of the ceremony.

Blushing, Barn Wedding in Tennessee

Posted by Caitlin on Sep 27, 2012

Lindsey & Matthew 

April 14

Clarksville, Tennessee 

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1.  Instead of renting tons of glasses for drinks, we purchased mason jars and painted a ring of chalkboard paint around the top of each jar. Our guests could write their name at the top of their jar, in chalk of course, and these also served as the favors the guests could take home. It was a creative way to save more than a few dollars, and our guests loved them!

2. Our programs for the wedding ceremony were my pride and joy! I’ve sat at weddings before and been completely bored and wondering when it would end, so I definitely didn’t want our guests to feel that way! I tried to make them as funny and creative as possible, to keep the guests engaged throughout. It was affirming when so many of the guests commented on the programs and even took pictures of them!

3. I’m not a huge fan of cake, so we decided to have a table full of individual pies instead. Our caterer was happy to make the flavors we wanted, and we stuck with traditional southern recipes-strawberry rhubarb, chess and apple. Every guest got their own mini pie, and as a budget conscious bride, it was much more affordable than having a wedding cake, since the caterer simply included the dessert cost in our overall cost per person. Matthew and I were also able to take the leftover pies on our honeymoon, and we had a different flavor each night for dessert!

2. Give us one moment from your wedding you cannot stop thinking about. 

After the ceremony, as the guests were filing out through the front of the church, Matthew and I spent a few minutes alone in a room “hiding.” It was such a quick, little intimate moment, but it gave us just enough time to laugh, cry and revel in the fact that we were MARRIED!
