Barn Wedding in Autumn

MacKenzie&Adam-StoneGateFarm19

Her siren song lured him in…at least that is what Adam likes to tell people when they asked how he met MacKenzie.

MacKenzie was out celebrating with her sister who had just secured an overseas teaching position in Vietnam. MacKenzie was very close to her sister so she was sad to see her leave. But at the same time, she was very happy for her since this was something she knew she always wanted.

The sisters decided to join a karaoke competition and when MacKenzie got up to sing, Adam was mesmerized. He said that he knew from that moment on that his life would never be the same again.

Knowing that he simply could not let her get away Adam proposed after only a few short months. He knew that they were meant to be together.

Ushered into the ceremony by her five nephews, MacKenzie appeared to be floating on a cloud…only having eyes for Adam. Whereas Adam, who couldn’t stop looking at his bride, just kept saying to his best man, “Wow! I still can’t believe she’s going to marry me. I am so lucky.”

Following the ceremony, Adam and MacKenzie were pronounced husband and wife to the delighted cheers of their friends and family. As they walked back down the aisle they were greeted with a fragrant sprinkling of dried lavender. I am quite certain all who were in attendance will think of this happy day every time they smell lavender.

As the guests entered the cedar lined barn at Stone Gate Farm they were lead to their tables by a flower bedecked escort card board. Placed at each seat was a bottle of rosemary infused olive oil created for each guest especially for them by Adam and MacKenzie making their favors that much more personal.

Each table setting was different. Some of the flowers were hand selected by the bride and many other flowers and herbs were grown specifically for the wedding by MacKenzie and her eight aunts. Each of her aunts and her mother teamed up together to create these beautiful and fragrant centerpieces and bouquets.

The delectable cake was created by Courtney’s Sweet Creations, complimented perfectly by the savory treats catered by CJ’s Restaurant and Catering. The guests enjoyed their meal so much that they all lined up for seconds once they went through the buffet line.

It was such a beautiful autumn day, crisp, cool and so full of love and celebration. I am quite sure that everyone will look back quite fondly at all the many happy memories created at Adam and MacKenzie’s wedding.
