Nick + Emily were so much fun to work with while planning their wedding! Lead coordinator Kellie loved that both of them came to their pre-planning meetings so she could get to know both of them and what their wedding dreams looked like as a couple. They were set for a spring wedding at the Round Barn, one of our F A V places!
The ladies spent the morning of the wedding getting hair & makeup done at the barn by Lady Vamp Artistry, while the guys got spiffed up in the groom’s room. While the bridal party prepped for the day, the RE team was busy setting up the decor throughout the space. The couple opted to rent decor from RE including our white sofa, buffet table, dessert stands and some signs! After everyone was ready, Forth and Able caught some amazing pictures of the crew before the ceremony, including an A D O R A B L E first look. We did a quick day of rehearsal before the guests arrived for the ceremony. It was then time to start! The ceremony was short, sweet and beautiful. The couple chose to partake in doing a unity symbol, which was a wooden chest filled with notes and mementos from their years together. The Stringdingers Bluegrass Band played during the ceremony and the live music was beautiful in the outdoor space at Round Barn.
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed a cocktail hour in the pavilion before heading into the round barn for the dance. The gifts & cards were placed on Round Barn’s old horse carriage – we L O V E D this! Dinner was served by A’BriTin [as always, so Y U M M Y], and desserts were cupcakes/small cake from The Copper Hen. Instead of doing guest favors, the couple donated money to cancer research – a very cool way to honor something special to you as a couple. After dinner, dessert & speeches, it was time to dance the night away. The first dance for the newly married couple was played by the Stringdingers, “You and Me” written by Tom Petty. The Stringdingers then picked it up and guests joined in for a night full of love, laughter and dancing. Guests also were able to enjoy the bonfire with smores outside before the late night snack arrived [P I Z Z A].
Emily + Nick – your day was one for the books! We L O V E D being a part of your wedding and hope that married life is treating you well in this new chapter of life. Thank you to Forth and Able for sharing these great photos of their day with us!
