a few more wedding pix

Not to overrun the site with too much wedding stuff, but hey, you asked for it (well, some of you did), here are a few more images from our big event.

After all the great advice you gave on how to decorate the barn we decided to listen to a few (thanks Reading Glasses, Ellobie, Allyson, DJ and more) who suggested we keep it simple. All we added were galvanized buckets of sunflowers (the buckets were from Ikea), strings of mini lanterns from Pearl River (we actually got cloth ones, not paper, so they’ll last longer) and votive candles (we placed them in mason jars around the barn). The chairs, if you’re wondering, were outside for the ceremony when this shot was taken.

Just to give you a sense of location, we rented a beautiful farmhouse, which came with the small barn. The ceremony was performed outside, just as sunset was beginning.

The party ended in the wee-hours of the morning, by a roaring bonfire and under a star-filled sky. We had marshmallows ready for roasting, but everyone was too stuffed on BBQ and pies (no cake!) to even think about it.

Thanks again for helping me plan everything and all your well wishes. It truly was a magical weekend. — Angela M.

Bravo!!!! And not just for doing the sunflowers in buckets! Best wishes!

Wow! That looks really gorgeous. You’re so lucky. I have to say, I’m jealous. Congrats!

Absolutely beautiful, Angela! I’m glad to hear you embraced the rustic feel of the barn. Feel free to share more photos and ideas.

I am just starting to begin thinking about the planning stages of my wedding, and this is exactly what I want: romantic, rustic, and charming. Where was the farm that you rented?

ok, sorry, duh. just clicked on the link. lovely.

Looks and sounds like a dream wedding!

That looks absolutely gorgeous. If I’d had the patience to plan a wedding, I would have wanted to look like yours.

Great stuff, and best wishes! :)

I love this, very romantic and intimate. Just one question, did you guys have a plan B for in case it rained? I’m getting married in a garden next June and although there’s a building for the reception on site, I DON’T want to get married in there. Is it worth the expense to rent a tent just to have the peace of mind? Not sure what others do…

Congrats Amber! Be sure to keep us updated as your plans progress… Our rain plan B was to just do everything in the barn. It wouldn’t have been as nice, but it would have done just fine if need be. What is the building like?

The building is okay, and will be great once we decorate it, but it’s a little small to have everyone in there at once (it is one long room with an upstairs & downstairs so we’re not worried about the reception bc food will be upstairs, dancing downstairs). I also just have a vision of my wedding in a garden, and I don’t want pictures of the ceremony indoors. I guess that makes the most sense, but I just really really don’t want it to rain haha.

That looks beautiful! Congratulations, of course.

I know I’m coming to this party late–but truly beautiful! Congratulations!

The idea of ending with a bonfire to cozy up to is serious inspiration for me in planning my own wedding… thanks for the idea!

[…] hard to believe, but it’s been a year since our lovely little barn wedding. So much as happened since (Hello, Isadora!) but most of the time it feels like just yesterday. […]
