Country Heritage Park
Today’s summer wedding at Country Heritage Park is where a city boy marries a country girl. In the country, there is a saying: go big or go home. Kaitlyn and John definitely went big for their wedding. This rustic wedding went off without a hitch, and the proof is in the pictures.
This family oriented couple went with a DIY-themed barn wedding. The shabby chic wedding packed plenty of emotion as the couple’s friends and family took place in an unforgettable, heartwarming day. And with the bride’s mom also being her bridesmaid, there was rarely a moment with dry eyes.
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. Aside from the full rustic barn setting at Country Heritage Park… this is the first time I’ve had a horse be a flower girl. Granted they had to take precautions as the flower girl pooped while walking down the aisle. But I mean any flower girl will attest to the fact that weddings are scary and sometimes you panic.
The beautiful, oversized barn was a beautiful backdrop for this civil wedding ceremony. The gorgeous wooden doors provided a natural setting for plenty of photos. Outdoor family photos near wooden fencing were the perfect combination of chic and country. And the vintage Ford gas made for amazing photos of the wedding party.
After the ceremony, the party moved to the reception barn. There were some delays with the reception starting on time. So our photo booth opened early and served as cocktail hour entertainment. The couple wasn’t expecting a late night and wanted to make sure everyone had a chance of enjoying it. 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.
