From the moment I started focusing on shooting weddings, I had this dream; and that dream was to shoot a wedding at a barn. You see, for at least the last seven years I have loved everything farmhouse-chic. I started watching Fixer Upper when I was in high school. I started designing my home and making farmhouse signs when I got married. And now that I focus on shooting weddings, I have really wanted my farmhouse-chic obsession to cross over into that area as well. Thanks to Dave and Lori at The Homestead 1835, on July 7th, that dream came true!
This wedding was a different one for me. Instead of being the wedding photographer, I was the photographer for the venue and had the great opportunity to take detail pictures for them. Since I was not the main photographer, my job was quite laid back this time and I was able to really observe the staff. One of the things I loved about shooting for The Homestead is how organized they are. They know exactly what's going to happen and when it's going to happen. They're prepared for pretty much any situation. Another thing I find special about this team is that they greet you at the front of the entrance with a smile and give you a little run down of where everything is. Lastly, they're flexible. They are here to make your day special in the best way that they can. Shooting details for a venue was a first for me and at The Homestead, it was definitely a great experience! If you've recently gotten engaged and you're looking for a venue with a farmhouse-chic style, I highly recommend checking them out! I know you'll love what you see and maybe, just maybe, you're farmhouse-chic obsession will spread into your wedding too ;)
