We had a true country wedding yesterday for the niece of the man of the house. I know it sounds cliche’ but this is a couple who truly are perfect together. Lacy looked stunning in her dress and her husband, Jess, was as handsome as could be.
They put this together at Lacy’s parents house in their barn. It was like a scene out of a magazine and I would love to share some of the beautiful touches they had.
Introducing as a married couple for the first time. The church was a small country church full of charm. I wish I had taken a picture of the church to show you it was once a beautiful, small house of worship. Due to budget cuts it is only used now for weddings and funerals.
After the reception we headed over to the man’s sister’s house and into the barn/tent reception area. The couple in the picture is my beautiful step daughter and her boyfriend.
This barn housed horses for the past 8 years. The last horse just moved out 7 days ago. But you would never have believe it was anything other than a reception hall!!
Even the restrooms had a country touch. The insides were beautifully done in cherry wood with lovely decorations all around.
Once inside the barn this was the first display to greet you.
Mr and Mrs. followed just behind with a welcoming sitting area. The tic-tac-toe game was set up also with hay bales covered in fabric with decorative string inviting you to sit and have a quick game or ten I think I played with the boy!!
Names and seating numbers were placed in decorative shutters directing guests to their tables.
Just outside the back of the barn you were welcomed into a beautiful area for dining, drinks, and dancing.
The centerpieces were stunning with the flowers and a cowbell for ringing and old jars. Each table was dressed in china dishes that did not match. They were dishes collected from family members and friends. Each plate held a special connection to the bride and groom!!
The cake and cupcake display was fabulous and when we were invited to try them each one we tried was more delicious than the one before. There were many different flavors such as cookie dough, white cloud, lemonade, red rosies to name a few.
Grandma and the kids were excited to get the celebration underway. And the boy was busy keeping us all entertained with his card tricks.
Our beautiful family.
Proud grandparents and cousins
The tables were even prettier if that’s possible in the dark evening night. They were all aglow
And after a wonderful day and evening you were guided out the long driveway by candlelight lining the way to the road.
It could not have been a more special celebration for two very special people to start their lives together. Congratulations to Lacy and Jess and many happy blessings for a love filled life.
