It could not have been done without my amazing girls that I love so much!!! Thank you for seeing my visions and making them all happen!!! We pulled it off!!!

It was so exciting to talk with this family on the check in day. The kids were excited that they were " about to make things final." Beautiful little girls dressed up like princesses and handsome young men looking all dapper. A sweet uncle to walk his niece down the isle. This was a family day and I was pleased to witness just part of it. I wish you two the best building your life together.

You know when we book weddings we have no idea of what the weather will really be like. It was a cold day in December when Sarah and Tj came out and said yes to our venue. Many plans were made in hopes of a perfect spring day with the dogwoods in bloom. Well I think they had the entire church praying for a beautiful weather day for their ceremony. Here are the pictures and I think you will agree... It was a perfect spring day! Wonderful photos Melissa!
And here is a google photo of the barn!

What a whirlwind day! Last Sunday we hosted a beautiful wedding under the barn on a gray day in December. You would never have known that the sun was not shining for this glowing bride. What a beautiful bride! Everyone hustled and bustled around preparing the chairs and tables. There was a beautiful grapevine arbor made by the bride's father, roses, lace and rustic touches throughout. I cannot wait to see the photos. Here are a few snapshots ...
Well today if finished and published The Farmhouse's first wedding planner! "Your best wedding planner 2017-2018" is now available through blurb books. I hope to continue the tradition each year offering a new wedding planner with select photography from our previous year's weddings. I am including a link to where you may purchase a copy for yourself or a bride you know who is planning her wedding. I have also designed a sticker sheet available at The Farmhouse to accompany the planner. Blurb Books offers special %off discounts through out the year so be sure to like their Facebook page and get your coupon code! Right now they are having a 30% off coupon on all books!
My sketchbook planner will be revised for the 2017 year next week.

Now you can see what dates are available at just a glance before contacting me. Please share with your friends looking for a venue. There are spring, summer and a few fall dates available. We unexpectedly had a cancellation for the end of October so let's get that date filled.
