Barn gets make over – many times over as details burst into life
Bride and Groom capture the meaning of charm as they welcome their guests
To say that Amy and Tyler’s Wedding Day was “Country Chic” would be a total understatement. I was in awe of the incredible creativity in every nook and cranny that screamed beautiful. As I walked into the venue my eyes darted to try to take in the all the elements. Their venue was at a neighbour’s barn which they transformed into a magazine worthy location.
Vision for the ceremony included an amazing Plan-B
The barn was their backup B plan in case of rain so they set to work removing all the cow stalls and whitewashed the interior walls and ceiling. The large doors at each end and all pillars inside were cascaded with white sheers to complete the dreamy effect on this rustic barn. The real “chic effect” although was the exterior of the barn that conveniently had a cement pad for their reception, tables and dancing. I felt as if I had been transported to a quaint European village. Tyler could have rented tables for their guest’s dinner but he had a vision and he definitely hit the mark building, sanding and staining each table. There was even a children’s table created low to the ground just for them. Each table had a beautiful runner with unique set of elements adorned in the center. Believe me when I say I have added just a taste of the details they created!! It was a magical, beautiful site/sight and I know from the chatter of your guests when they arrived, they also were in awe of this fabulous vision you made.
The Thunderstorms and Rain held off all round Elgin – horseshoes indeed!
I met Amy and Tyler years ago when they contacted me for an Engagement session….2 actually as Amy is creative soul and she had another vision for several other locations 🙂 They are such a warm compassionate couple and it is plain to see that they are each others best friends and absolutely life partners. Amy was stunning in her Wedding gown and her beautiful smile blessed each guest. What I loved was the children who Amy attracts like bees to honey…they adore her warm positive vibe and attention to them.
Although the weather outlook was poor for Saturday we were blessed to only have about 20 minutes of hard rain during the location creatives but no worries at all John and I had planned for this and had umbrellas handy just in case. The show must go on and Amy and Tyler rocked their creatives without even thinking twice about the downpour. They are troopers and a bit of rain was certainly not going to impede their day J Rain is magic!
Country Wedding Paradise
Pastor Bob created a relaxed, touching and beautiful service which even included a refreshment for Amy and Tyler J Amy created handmade books to read their vows to each other and couldn’t help but hug Tyler after each reading, an awe moment for sure.
Merle (Amy’s Mom) made all the food for the guests, with the assistance of Amy’s sisters, and that is absolutely incredible. I am sure the guests enjoyed every single delicious bite 🙂
Congratulation’s Amy and Tyler on your vision and John and I wish you a lifetime of joy, love and devotion on your new adventures in life together. xxoo
