We just love that in 2015 Rustic barn weddings still going strong. There is something very peaceful about a barn venue and from a design perspective, they never fail to excite us. Their blank canvas allows for two extremes in the design world. You can either go minimal and showcase the beauty of these incredible buildings, or you can go all out with a light installation, fabric draping the entrance to the barn doors, bales of hay covered with cashmere throws doubling as your lounge furniture, a garland of peonies and garden roses serving as your tuscan table runner...you get the idea...the sky is the limit and I have done it all.
This past September, I had the pleasure of working with one of my favorite couples to date, Brittany and Lee. When we first met, I immediately fell in love with these two. They are laid back, hysterical, and so perfectly matched for each other. I fell in love with them even more when they told me their venue was the Historic Barns of Nipmoose in Buskirk, NY (www.nipmoosebarns.org). There are few venues as beautiful as Nipmoose, especially during the fall months in Upstate NY. Brittany and Lee's vision was simple: clean, modern with a focus on the beauty of the barns. Lee's Scottish heritage was a focal point with the color palette and overall vision. I was in heaven. We were working with a neutral color palette that tied nicely together with two different family tartans.
Four foot tall hydrangea arrangements were the focal point in the reception barn, the beautiful wedding cake was displayed on a large barrel in the dancing barn, and homemade jams adorned with different family tartans served as guest favors. To top it all off, the weather gods gave us a misty rainy day, which only added to the Scottish Isles feel of the day.
Despite the drizzle and chill, our dear friend, and insanely talented, Rob Spring from Rob Spring Photography captured the day perfectly. The skies cleared just in time for post ceremony and night shots of the barns.
