Country Heritage Park
Today’s summer wedding at Country Heritage Park was the real-life rendition of the Brady Bunch. Two people who had kids in their first marriage. Then they came together to become one giant family. There was no Alice. However this Scottish family did come with a large assortment of uncles and aunts. In essence, this really was a family affair. In fact, the family created every element of this wedding including the bride’s hair and makeup. There were soo many personal touches and significant pieces that I honestly hope I captured everything.
This civil ceremony went off without a hitch, and the proof is in the pictures. The family-oriented couple married in a small intimate chapel. The wedding packed plenty of emotion as the couple’s friends and family took place on an unforgettable day. Their kids made up the bridal party and Neil’s vintage blue truck was the family limo.
Country weddings aren’t always country. In fact, most of them just have a bride wearing cowgirl boots. Whereas, this is one of my rare exceptions. The homey setting of the Conestoga room was perfect for this wedding. All the decor and accessories were Mary’s designs. She is the founder and designer of Rusted Hearts Decor. It’s a vintage/rustic decor rental company. The boutonnieres, bouquets, linen ties, wedding programs, and all the decorative elements are all her.
Since the reception room was an old cottage, the power sockets weren’t the most reliable. So the strobe lighting I normally use to light up wedding receptions were replaced with an alternative setup. It’s not ideal but does work with unique spaces like this that converted into a wedding venue. By the time their first dance started, it was getting dark. So the entire venue was lit up by string lights hanging from the ceiling. These added a beautiful glow to their evening photos. On the whole, it was the perfect ending to this elegant country wedding.
