Kalin & Ben


There is something special and unique added to a wedding when the couple decides on a venue that is a deeply historic site. Kalin and Ben wanted a sweet ceremony that encompassed everything this venue had to offer. They knew the moment they saw the amazing oak tree on the grounds that this was the place they would become one. The old oak tree was used as the gorgeous backdrop. We incorporated ladders and lanterns into the ceremony to mix with the vibe of the venue.

As the day started out, there was bad weather in the forecast leading up to the ceremony. The sun was covered by gloomy clouds, and it looked like a storm was brewing. An amazing moment for this couple and the wedding itself was when the officiant gathered Kalin, Ben, and their wedding party, and prayed that the weather would hold off for the wedding. It was extraordinary to see at that very moment, the clouds parted and the sun shined its rays down right on the large oak tree where the vows would be exchanged. The sky was clear for the rest of the day! It was truly a spectacular sight.

We kept the reception romantic and tied in with the aesthetic of the venue with floating candlelight and lanterns. Kalin's father incorporated some gorgeous  sentimental pieces by handmaking the cupcake tower and the wood crates that displayed all of the personal photographs and decor. The bride and groom opted for yummy cupcakes  by The Flour Garden as their wedding sweets and a southern-style buffet by Draper Catering. The celebration continued into the night with lots of dancing and memory-making. It was such a sweet day for a very sweet couple, and we could not be more excited for them. Congrats Kalin and Ben!
