What we have dubbed as a wedding full of cowboy boots and southern roots kicked off our April line-up of weddings this year. Heather and Garrett chose to have their ceremony at the back of our barn and utilize the white cotton curtains to frame the doorway they stood in front of. Full of fun, the wedding party and groom danced their way down the aisle before taking their spots. When the bride arrived, escorted by her father, the music slowed down and faces turned to catch a glimpse of the main lady of the night. Their officiant, Jeremy Melton, led a ceremony tailored to the couple giving friendly advice from the heart. Within the service, the couple participated in a sand ceremony as an analogy of blending lives together and never being able to separate those grains.
Following their ceremony, guests enjoyed appetizers from At Your Service Catering as Pix by Gigi, the couple’s photographer, snapped shots of the newlyweds in our fenced-in field. Once the couple was announced, the wedding party and guests enjoyed a buffet from At Your Service Catering including pulled pork, fried chicken, green
beans, rolls and macaroni and cheese.
When the time came to dance, C&D Entertainment kicked off the night with the traditional dances and then led into group dances that got the crowd up and off their feet. A unique aspect of the night came when the DJ led the couple in a newlywed game involving shoes. The couple raised the shoe of who the question fit best and it provided many laughs from the audience to watch the couple participate in this.
After the cake was cut (and the cake war between the bride and groom was over) guests went outside to line the pathway with sparklers for the couple’s farewell photos. Following this fake farewell, guests went back inside to enjoy the rest of their evening. Once back inside, guests danced and we even spotted a little boy getting’
down while eating a cupcake!
We want to thank Heather and Garrett for choosing to spend their special day with us and wish them all the best!
