Kara and Dave, did an awesome job with decorating the barn at the Chandler House for their wedding day. Wow! I couldn't believe how beautiful it was. If you are thinking about doing a barn wedding at a reasonably priced location, you must look at the Chandler House B and B. There was plenty of space for the family, bridesmaids, and groomsmen to stay overnight and lovely spaces for the "Getting Ready" shots the next morning. The ceremony took place on the lawn out back, as well as the cocktail hour, and the fire-works display later on that night. The barn was the perfect place for Dinner and Dancing. Barns are still one of my favorite places for a wedding! I guess it must be because I'm somewhat of a laid-back kind of soul. Sooo much fun!
I especially enjoyed Dave and Kara's pre-wedding "reveal' on the front porch. It was just priceless to see Dave's face when he saw his wife-to-be for the first time. I am so honored to be part of these "first meetings". They are often times very emotional and it is one reason why some couples are choosing to take a peek a little before the ceremony. The good old fashioned coming down the aisle is wonderful also. The sneak peek is sometimes easier on couples if they are overly emotional people and want a little more privacy. It's all good, you just need to figure out what works best for you.
