Q & A with the Bride:

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

Let me start off with I’m from Arkansas, the “Natural State.” We have abundant trees and wildlife everywhere you look. The barn for me really encompassed the love I have for my state and natural surroundings. To get to the barn you take the “backroads” through beautiful wildflower pastures that have scattered trees that have stood the passage of time. You then travel down a dirt road with almost a perfect tunnel of blooming and green trees. You are greeted with a rustic and large barn, even though they constructed this barn about a year ago, it holds such an aged grandeur, it really makes you feel something special.  A connection to something you saw a long time ago, a place you always wanted to visit.  The area it is surrounded by has skillfully constructed stone garden beds with all colors and shapes of flowers. It also has a bonfire area and huge flatbed swing.  All of these things made me feel comfortable and at home. They made me feel proud that I could live in such a place full of beauty. The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch is a place where I believe many couples could find a serene but lively venue to create their perfect wedding memories.

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

1. Altar

2. Cake

3. Koozies

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

All day long it was supposed to rain on my wedding. The sky was gray and the sun was hidden. I was terrified that this would be the death of my dream outdoor wedding.  Of course, the barn had planned an inside move if needed, but I was still nervous. The rain held off and when it finally started to drizzle, while Joe and I were exchanging our vows under the arbor, the rain sprinkled in a perfect circle around us. It was the trees shaking off the collected drops in such a manner it looked planned. After the trees cleared their branches, the sun jumped out from a cloud and shined through these trees right on to us. It was seriously like something out of a movie.  Although we dated for six years prior to our wedding, this made me feel like this was proof that rain or shine we were meant to be together.
