I'm going to start here with the reception because it was like nothing I had seen before. My groom lives here or should I say his parents own the property and he grew up here. While this is a farm property it is meticulously groomed and manicured.
They cut out a space for the Marquee Tent inside the corn field which was precisely designed with this laneway leading from the barn.
We photographed this couple's engagement session on the property and used the beautiful barn, the corn fields, the expansive grounds, the few animals and finished with "on golden pond style portraits during golden hour.
For any venue that isn't full service, but especially barn wedding venues the most important is insurance and licensing the barn to be open to the public.
Plan on being responsible for:
The ceremony was held in the barn simply decorated with a mason jar chandelier and guests sat in white chairs.
The bride arrived in carriage driven by her team of horses and dad at the reins.
She arrived at the barn in style while the groom wept at the alter.
After the ceremony, the bride and groom got back into the carriage and drove the team of horses down the long laneway and back around the house to the pond at the back of this private property.
After photos of the family and wedding party, I spent 20 minutes with my couple as we walked back towards the party to join their cocktail hour which they were very excited to enjoy.
The reception began during golden hour with the bridal party dancing their way into the tent and then greeted the bride and groom to enjoy the evening.
