Rustic Wedding

The Brown Barn, located at the Evergreen Memorial Park, just may be my new favorite wedding venue. Surrounded by mountains and evergreens, the 100 acre park is graced by rolling meadows, rustic cabins and a beautiful, barn overlooking the reservoir and foothills.
The Barn Chapel is an historic collection of five old barns ranging from seventy to one hundred years old. The barn features beautiful antique stained glass windows, large picture windows and warm interior.
Alison and Craig did a fabulous job at creating romance in a lovely rustic style.
I especially liked the "lounge" they created in the upper loft of the barn,
by bringing in comfy couches and chairs for a living room feel.
A twist on the typical photo booth, Alison found Polaroid film on ebay
and provided a camera for the guests to take old fashioned photos.
The film most likely had been around for awhile, as the photos had a great aged feel.
The bride and groom were married in Mexico a month ago, this was the reception.
Just a hairpiece and boutonniere for the couple.  Stems filled the collected bottles and jars
with berries stems, foliages, succulents and even pretty red radishes.
